Kumar first garnered a whole lot of attention online and became an overnight internet sensation in March 2020 after senior Indian Police Officer (IPS) officer Mukesh Singh shared his video on Twitter. The young officer’s passion and musical talent earned him the title of “rapper cop” or “policewala rapper” in his hometown.
As he moved to a bigger stage, netizens couldn’t stop praising him for his thoughtful lyrics and impressive delivery. Beyond his hometown, people around the country are rooting for him and wishing him well for the competition. Many remarked whether he wins the talent show or not he has already managed to win people’s hearts.
