After Sonu Nigam, singer-composer Adnan Sami has called out the ‘mafia’ of the Indian music industry. Echoing similar thoughts as Nigam, he mentioned that the singers, music composers and music producers are exploited in the country “to the hilt” and creativity is controlled by those who have “no clue about creativity”.

“The Indian Film & Music Industry SERIOUSLY needs a ‘Herculean‘ SHAKE UP. Especially in the context of music, New Singers, Veteran Singers, Music Composers & Music Producers – who are being exploited to the HILT!! “Fall into the DICTAT or you’re OUT”… Why is creativity beyond “CONTROLLED” by those you have no clue about ‘creativity’ & are trying to play GOD??” wrote Sami in his latest social media post.

The singer, known for chartbusters like “Tera Chehra”, “Lift Kara De” and “Bhar Do Jholi Meri” among more, condemned the trend of remakes and remixes and requested big music companies to allow young and veteran artistes to “give them creative peace musically & cinematically.”

We have 1.3 Billion people in India by the grace of God- Is all that we have to offer is ‘remakes’ & ‘remixes’? For God sake, STOP THIS & allow the truly talented new & veteran artistes BREATH & give you creative peace Musically & Cinematically!!! Have you, the Movie & Music ‘Mafia’ who have arrogantly entitled yourselves as the ‘self professed & self appointed gods‘ not learned anything from history that you can NEVER control art & the ecosystem of creativity of any field? ENOUGH!! MOVE OVER!! “CHANGE” is here & it’s knocking on your door!! Ready or Not, it‘s coming in! Brace yourselves! As Abraham Lincoln said – “You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time!!”

Adnan Sami further wrote, “Have you, the Movie & Music ‘Mafia’ who have arrogantly entitled yourselves as the ‘self-professed & self-appointed gods‘ not learned anything from history that you can NEVER control art & the ecosystem of creativity of any field? ENOUGH!! MOVE OVER!! “CHANGE” is here & it’s knocking on your door!! Ready or Not, it‘s coming in! Brace yourselves!”

He concluded by quoting Abraham Lincoln, “You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time!!”

Singer Alisha Chinai, popular for her song “Made In India” replied to Sami’s Instagram post and called the music and movie industry of India a “toxic” place.

She wrote, “The Movie n Music Mafia want try n control you with fear n power… Work Ethics n Fair Play are non-existent…. Its a Sham n Damn Rip off… Instead of Revering n Respecting the Artist who feeds them they fuck you over with fraudulent contracts n boycott you if you don’t massage their misplaced Egos n Kiss-Ass or succumb to their pressure n play the game their way … The whole System Sucks…. !!!! It’s the main reason why the music n the movies have crashed… its a Karma Reset.”

Last week, Sonu Nigam shared how two big companies control the music scenario in the country. He also requested the music companies to be compassionate towards newcomers as “it’s a difficult scenario for the new kids.”

In another video, he warned T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar against maligning his name. He even slammed a group of “six singers”, including Armaan Mallik, who released statements refuting his claims about the functioning of the music industry.
