Jasbir Jassi clears the air
Singer Jasbir Jassi ( left), who came under the spotlight for his statement about singer Yo Yo Honey Singh recently, says that he did meet Singh, but not in a rehab. “I met him in Chandigarh, not denying from that, but I did not meet him in a rehab,” he says. “I don’t need to speak against Honey Singh for publicity. I can get that by singing certain kind of songs,” further adds Jassi, hinting at songs with lewd lyrics.
“I have nothing personal against him ( Yo Yo Honey Singh), in fact I admire his music and am fan of his beats. Only issue I ever had was with some of his songs with obscene lyrics and glorifying alcohol/ drugs, ( sic)” wrote Jassi, about Singh on twitter on Tuesday.
Jassi, who has sung hits such as Laung da lashkara ( Patiala House, 2011), Dil le gayee kudi Gujrat di and Kudi kudi, has a reputation of being upfront and has stood against songs with lewd lyrics, as he believes in promoting quality music.
