Let’s state facts, I know you have caught yourself tapping your feet to or singing along with ‘Selfie Maine Leli Aaj’ no matter how much you disagree.
I’m just one of those people who got tagged in one of Dhinchak Pooja’s videos. All my friends laughed at how off-key her songs were. People around me mocked one another by saying, ‘I bet Dhinchak Pooja is your favorite singer.’ I saw people agreeing to go for Dhinchak Pooja’s Live Concert as a joke. But somehow, none of this amused me!
Hear me out before telling me I have no sense of humor.
I won’t lie, I did watch all her songs and I did cringe at them. I heard how off-key her tunes were, how un-synced the music and her singing was and how utterly screechy her voice sounded. But for me, that’s all right. She’s just an amateur whose friends told her (probably as a joke) how good her singing was and how great her singing career would be. Or she’s probably just another girl who used her shampoo bottle as a mic and sang in the shower and thought she could be the next Indian Nightingale and I’m fine with it.
Everybody is now making money through her!
But you know what bothers me, how her Youtube Video ‘Selfie Maine Leli Aaj’ has over 19 million views just overnight. And not just that, people have made covers of it, they are making roasts about her, they are taking interviews of other people asking how much they hate her songs…there’s no end to it. Basically, people like you and me have made someone this amateurish so famous that everybody is now making money through her!
Doesn’t it bother you like it does me, how such a talentless voice is earning in lacs if not billions and so many other beautiful, innately talented voices are not even recognized? They are the people who have probably given up on their singing careers because they could never make it big.
Shouldn’t we, social media users, be absolutely ashamed about this?
I think we need to rethink our choices even if they are made as a joke.
It’s 2017 and the world certainly must be going backwards. But even in olden times, talent was appreciated, not…to be honest, I don’t even know why Pooja Jain aka Dhinchak Pooja has reached this point in fame.
In this time and age, where teenagers are committing suicide or are in a pit of depression over not being ‘famous’ on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube, I think we need to rethink our choices even if they are made as a joke.
In conclusion, I want to ask you just one thing, what did you get by listening to her songs except a headache that we made her so famous?
