Bunty Singh in song – Indian with an African woman
Bunty Singh is again at the top of the charts after a decade-odd career in the Guyanese Chutney Soca industry. The 2017, 2018 & 2020 Guyana Chutney Monarch champion has just released another hit song and music video, titled Hello, Tanha Dil Ghabrata Hai [A lonely hear trembles] on December 28, 2021.
The upbeat chutney love song is about an Indian man telling his African woman how much he loves her – a departure and upstage from the norm of an Afro man with an Indian woman that is usually portrayed in advertisements. The genre-medley incorporates a fusion of rhythms besides classic Chutney including pop, reggae and Bollywood.
The music video begins with Singh holding his African queen. Then, she is seen pacing … about, to tell her parents of her intention to wed, her potential dulaha [bridegroom]. They embrace her warmly. Bunty serenades her, “Thank you baby for loving me/ you always make me happy/ so go and tell your family/ we about to get married./ The love that I have for you will always be the same” before rattling out sultry Hindi.
Next is the rap feature of the sound, then a return to chutney to play at the heartstrings: You support my broken life/ truly have to be my wife/ there is no other/ only you forever/ everyday/ my love for you grow stronger/ so go and tell your family we about to get married.” Then Hindi, more rap/reggae and chutney to close.
Hello Tanha Dil Ghabrata Hai has already garnered more than 150,000 views on Youtube, and the viewership is steadily increasing. Besides this, Bunty Singh has numerous songs surpassing one million views including: Sweetheart featuring Savita Singh, Rosehall Town Gyal featuring Vanita Willie, Sorry and She Want Me Be She Raja.
