Desi fans have long been gripped by the stunning voice of Lankan singer-rapper Yohani whose version of the song is currently viral. However, many do not know that it is only a cover of the original 2020 song produced by Chamath Sangeeth.

Originally released as a single in July last year, it was sung by Satheeshan and rapper Dulan ARX, who is also the lyricist. Following the cover’s success in India, the singers released Tamil and Malayalam versions of the song. However, owing to its crazy popularity, several vernacular versions of the song have subsequently taken social media by storm.
