Naezy calls rapper Divine 'tough' competition

MUMBAI: Rappers Divine and Naezy the real ‘Gully boys’ who don't rap about flashy lifestyles" tasted stardom after the release of Zoya Akhtar's film Gully Boy this year. Naezy is proud of what ‘brother’ Divine has achieved so far, but also sees a tough competitor in the artiste.
 
Naved Shaikh, popular by his stage name Naezy, and Divine's (Vivian Fernandes) lives had served as an inspiration to Gully Boy, which is counted among one of the biggest Bollywood films of 2019. Now, the two rappers are more in demand. In February, Divine had also announced setting up a company which will function as a record label, recruit and manage new hip-hop talent and produce content.
 
Asked Naezy if he also has a similar thought on mind, he told IANS, “I am proud of being a good friend and colleague of rapper Divine. I look at him as a brother and a tough competitor. I think he has done good by launching a record label.”
 
"Maybe I will also promote budding rappers through other means, not necessarily by launching a label," added the talented artist, who recently served as a guest judge on an Indian rap reality show.
 
As of now, he is looking forward to his gig in Australia on 24 August 2019.
