26-year-old Nigeria resident Samuel Adepoju, aka Samuel Singh is the latest internet sensation. His latest song, a cover of the famous Bhojpuri song Lollipop Lagelu, has garnered more than 5 lakh views and 16k shares on Facebook so far.
It’s not Samuel’s first cover of a Hindi song. He did dancehall version of Yoyo Honey SIngh’s song Kudiye ni tere, brown rang ne which caught everyones attention.
Why he added ‘Singh’ to his name? His answer was:
‘I’m Nigerian by birth, Indian by heart. I’ve chosen Singh because there’s a lot of strength in that name. In my mind, I feel like Hanuman ji when I associate myself with strength and I’m very proud to be using the name. Thanks for accepting me!’
