MUMBAI: Malaysian reggae star and Asian ambassador for reggae, Sashi - The Don has teamed up with India's first Indian Idol and singer Abhijeet Sawant. In an exclusive interview with Music Beat on the occasion of his upcoming album, My Second Wave, the reggae icon spilled beans about his friendship with Abhijeet and the song they are collaborating on.
"I am collaborating with Abhijeet Sawant who is a very good friend of mine from India for my new album Second Wave. We have got a song called ‘Jaane Jana’. India has many great singers and Abhijeet has got an amazing voice and when I was writing this song, I told him, ‘brother you should be on this song. You have to figure out the Hindi lyrics and tell me a good title'. He agreed, and we worked together and used the internet to our benefit, and everything just fell in place, which was the most beautiful thing. Jaane Jana is a really nice song and fans should look forward to it.
Further commenting on his friendship with the Mohabbatein Lutaunga singer, Sashi The Don shared, "I have been his friend since 2018 i.e. the first time when he came to Malaysia to do a show. I was already knowing his manager and when they were here, we met. I took them out to show the city and for having food. We had a good time and we both became good friends since then. We have been connecting through the social platform and are always looking out for one another."
Well, Sashi and Abhijeet's bonding indeed gave us friendship goals and we gladly wait for their song's release.
Jaane Jana is a part of Sashi The Don's upcoming album My Second Wave, slated to release on 18 December 2020.
