Did Wiz Khalifa wow the crowds in Mumbai, Delhi?
By Bandook - September 16, 2019
Wiz Khalifa’s two-city Sunburn Arena showcase saw him perform to close to a reported 10,000-strong audience (in each city, Delhi and Mumbai).
The rap superstar’s 90-minute high-energy set was preceded by Indian pop and hip-hop acts in both cities. While Raja Kumari, Ananya Birla and THEMXXNLIGHT held forth in Delhi NCR, Emiway Bantai, Ananya Birla, Monica Dogra, THEMXXNLIGHT, Ishani x Bobkat had the audience on its feet in Mumbai before Khalifa took to the stage.
See You Again was Khalifa’s opener, followed by Black And Yellow. He shared, “This is going to be the most memorable night since it’s my last night in India, followed by a rendition of When I Grow Up, We Own It, Sucker For Pain and Young Wild And Free.
And then his shirt came off. He launched into Promises, Payphone, We Dem Boyz, Roll Up and Hopeless Romantic.
He left off with a promise, “I will definitely be back again”.
Backstage in Mumbai, he rubbed shoulders with the likes of Madhuri Dixit-Nene, her husband Sriram Nene and her son, Arin, who apparently is a big fan of Wiz.
And in case you’re wondering why Raja Kumari is in this picture, know that Madhuri has been supportive of RK for the longest time now and if you google their names, you’ll discover that they’re in several pictures together.>
