Pop­u­lar Bol­ly­wood play­back singer and song­writer Mika Singh has been em­braced by Fi­jian warmth and ad­mi­ra­tion, as many other in­ter­na­tional celebri­ties vis­it­ing our shores are. He was so de­lighted he re­vealed dur­ing his performance that he in­tends to tour Fiji ev­ery two years. Mika has per­formed numer­ous hit songs for Bol­ly­wood stars, in­clud­ing Shah Rukh Khan, Sal­man Khan and Ahk­shay Ku­mar, to name but a few.

But the day ar­rived and I was lucky enough to join my col­league, pho­tog­ra­pher Feroz Khalil to see the first show at the Voda­fone Arena in Suva last month, from a top view­ing spot pro­vided by the spon­sor­ing Fiji Broad­cast­ing Com­mis­sion.
