King of Bhangra Daler Mehndi participated in a live chat several days ago, interacting with fans from all around the world. This live chat, hosted by Hungama and streamed on his official Facebook fan page, made him the first ever musician to do a live video chat with his admirers on Facebook. He as a result has now joined the clan of prestigious people, including US President Barack Obama, to be interviewed by Facebook. The bhangra sensation had an enormous following from Pakistan, UK, Europe, USA, and Canada during the video chat. He answered questions about his new release Tunak Tunak Tumba, discussed future projects, and sang multiple songs requested by his fans. Commenting on his video chat, Mehndi says:
I thoroughly enjoyed the live chat on Facebook. Technology is a powerful tool bringing World together. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity given to me by Facebook and Hungama to interact directly with my fans, and hope my fans had a wonderful time too!
It looks like Daler Mehndi’s video chat was extremely successful. Let’s hope that more of our favorite artists consider live chatting with their fans too!
