An MC who has worked with some of the industry’s finest, he came to prominence in the early 2000’s.

Check out the teaser for this track!
‘Thenu Thakia’ is produced by Rishi Rich and features Bobby Akhiyan, the Punjabi vocals of another artist who was a breakthrough act a decade ago.
“Thenu Thakia is an exciting new release for me. I’ve taken my own sweet time in coming back to the music scene but it’s been well worth the wait. I’m making music which is current and with some of the biggest names around on the biggest Asian label, Moviebox. Rishi Rich has produced an amazing track here and I decided to collaborate with a singer who I worked with all those years ago. Bobby, or Bobby Akhiyan as he’s now known, is an immensely talented singer who’s vocals shine on ‘Thenu Thakia’ I hope everyone enjoys this song as much as I did making it.”
Intenso creates a mellow fire and fusion on ‘Thenu Thakia’, blending his lyrical flow with the trademark Desi sounds of Rishi Rich and Punjabi chorus from Bobby. The trio combine to great effect, ensuring ‘Thenu Thakia’ is a song which Asian music lovers of all ages can connect with.
