Sonu Niigaam, T-Series at loggerheads?

MUMBAI: After lashing out at the industry over the copyright issue, singer Sonu Niigaam has now turned the heat towards music label T-Series.

The singer alleges that music label T-Series is misguiding the listeners with its latest offering 'Yeh Naya Naya' claiming it to be a new album from Sonu's stable. Ironically, Niigaam refutes the claim saying, the album has songs that were recorded in 1994 and not freshly recorded songs.

The singer has used social networking site as his mode of communication yet again. Writes Niigam on Twitter, "Attention Attention!! My new album Yeh Naya Naya by T-Series, is not new at all. It was recorded in 1994, my earliest ever work and if a company is misleading you, it's my duty as an artiste to clarify this. The singer further goes on to say, "Since a lot of u will buy it thinking this is my latest offering to you. Buy it for sure, but not because it is new, but because it is ancient."

The album 'Yeh Naya Naya' comprises of eight tracks rendered by Sonu Niigaam along with other singers including- Hema Sardesai, Kavita Krishnamoorthy, Sadhna Sargam and Shankar Mahadevan.

When contacted the music giant, T-Series president - marketing media publishing (TV) Vinod Bhanushali clarifies, "It is infact a compilation album. Even in the past, we have launched many of his compilations hence it is nothing new. We are anyway not planning to promote the album too much," he added refusing to say anything further on the issue.
