Daboo Malik vouches for pop and RnB artist Nikita

MUMBAI: At a time when many music reality TV shows are being applauded for giving a platform to talent from different regions of the country, Indian music director, composer, singer, actor, and scriptwriter, Daboo Malik has also joined the league. He will be promoting talent that needs an exposure.

Daboo says, "There are so many talented artists coming to Mumbai to pursue their dream, but having to leave because they couldn't cut it in the big city. They have the talent, but nowhere to perform and connect with the right audience. I want to give them a chance to showcase their work and connect them with the audience."

"Not everyone from many talent hunts get a chance to work in the industry, but it is important to believe in yourself. They are all achievers," adds Daboo Malik.

Daboo Malik believes in an Indian Pop/RnB phenom Nikita. She has lent her vocals and lyrics for Grammy award winning producer RedOne, platinum-selling producer Russel Steedle, which garnered attention from Atlantic and Capitol Records. This singer-songwriter steps up on the plate to bring a South-Asian twist on the genre, creating space for people largely underrepresented.

Born and raised in Mumbai, India, Nikita grew up between two worlds: one, her family’s deep ties to Indian Classical and old Bollywood music; the other, the years she spent learning and studying Pop/RnB music with industry music professional Samantha Edwards in her hometown, as well, as at Musicians Institute, Los Angeles. Her sound aims to meld the two worlds together.

Nikita has worked in Tinki (2018, written and directed by Ankur Maan), Freyja (2017, written and directed by Shivin Grover; Tilted Square Films), and Fiat India

Together, her debut single, Honest and the following, Exodus, garnered half a million plays on Spotify alone.
