Guess who’s not a fan of rap music--Pakistani ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali. The famous singer believes that excessive use of rap music in today’s movies and albums is “spoiling the real culture of music”.
Speaking at a function on Thursday, the legendary singer: “Rap culture is spoiling the (original) culture of music. One should understand that.” Ghulam Ali, who has been facing protests by a section of society here over his Pakistani origins, also slammed the increasing usage of ‘double-meaning words’ and ‘cheap’ words in the songs these days.
“Today’s music has become such wherein even if put cheap words in a song, it will still be loved by people.” He described Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam as his favourite Indian singers.
