Mika Singh (born 10 June 1977) is an Indian singer, rapper, musician and actor. His songs include "Bas Ek King" (Singh Is Kinng), "Mauja Hi Mauja" (Jab We Met), "Ibn-e-Batuta" (Ishqiya), and "Dhanno" (Housefull). He has released several solo albums and appeared on reality shows. His song "Sawan Main Lag Gayi Aag" was remixed by U.S based singer Pinky Paras.[2]

Early life[edit]

Singh was born on 10 June 1977 as Amrik Singh in Durgapur, West Bengal.[3][4][5] He is the youngest of eight, two daughters and six sons.[5][6][7] Singh and his elder brother Daler Mehndi were inspired by their father, Ajmer Singh, a trained classical musician who used to sing kirtans in Patna Sahib Gurdwara since childhood.[5][8]

Concerts and tours[edit]

In 2014, Singh performed live and sold out in Bollywood Showstoppers at The O2 Arena with Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shahid Kapoor, Ali Zafar, and supported by Bollywood dance group Bolly Flex, that appeared Sky1's dance competition show, Got to Dance.[9]

Singh also performed at his biggest outdoor concert at Danny Singh's Sandwell & Birmingham Mela in 2016 with an overall audience for the duration of the Mela estimated to be 80,000.[10]

Controversies[edit]

In 2006, Rakhi Sawant lodged a case against Mika, alleging that he kissed her against her will.[11][12]

In 2011, singer Mika was reportedly involved in a hit and run case, according to PTI. It was alleged that Mika's Hummer collided with an auto rickshaw during the early hours of the morning in Mumbai. However, Mika denied being the driver at the time of the incident. Two police officers and the auto rickshaw driver asserted that they had seen the singer behind the wheel of the car.[13][14][12]

In 2013, Mika Singh's farmhouse in Gurgaon was reportedly sealed following alleged violations of the environmental laws on the property.[13][15][16]

In 2015, Singh reportedly slapped a doctor at an event in New Delhi, organised by the Delhi Ophthalmological Society. The altercation caused a negative reaction from attending doctors, and the doctor allegedly suffered a perforated eardrum as a result.[13][12]

In 2018, Singh was detained in the UAE following a case filed against him by a Brazilian teenage model, accusing him of sexual assault. Subsequently, he was incarcerated and later released with the intervention of the Indian Embassy.[17][18]

On 14 August 2019, All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) imposed a ban on singer Mika Singh from the Indian film industry due to his performance at an event in Karachi, Pakistan. The event organised by a close relative of former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, prompted the film body to enforce an unconditional ban on the singer and boycotted him from all the movies and music contracts with the entertainment companies. The association also sought the intervention of Information and Broadcasting ministry in the matter.[19][20]

Political career[edit]

Mika Singh served as the star campaigner for the Aam Aadmi Party during the 2022 MCD elections.[21][22]

Mika dismissed rumours of contesting against Rakhi Sawant as an Aam Aadmi Party candidate in the 2022 elections, stating, "I guess if I join politics, I will become the prime minister!"

He donated Rs 21 lakh to the Aam Aadmi Party, which was acknowledged by Vishal Dadlani in a tweet, praising Mika Singh.[23]
