Punjabi singer-composer Deep Money aka Amandeep Singh took five years to realize that he has “no friends” in the industry. Yet he has no regrets and only has good wishes to those who “used him” to “move up the ladder in the industry.”

In a candid conversation, the singer who released his album Everlast, and who will soon be releasing another album, says the industry has taught him to only “trust himself.”

“It is a very hypocritical industry. There are people who say that ‘Paaji aapka gaana superhit hai’, even if it’s not a good song. When you are not around, they will criticise you. I have realized that I cannot trust anyone, and I have surrounded myself with people who are brutally honest,” he shares.

“People go to parties and hang out with fellow musicians. I don’t like doing that. I only want to create music and I would rather sit in my studio than party outside,” he adds.

Deep Money who made his mark in the industry with Dope Shope along with rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, adds that he has no hard feelings towards those musicians who are not collaborating with him anymore, including Baadshah and Raftaar. “I worked with Baadshah for Come to Me and with Raftaar for Bottle and that’s when their career kicked off. I don’t think I will be working with them, until some movie producer wants us to collaborate, I wish them luck and hope that they do well in their respective careers. But I don’t hold any grudges against them or anyone else,” he says.

The Neeli Neeli Aankhein hitmaker was unwell in 2015, but has now made a full recovery and is excited to be back in the industry. “Unfortunately, I was a bit out of the scene for one and half years, because of a problem with my back. But I am now back and I have so many songs. I have been composing for a while, and I have a lot of songs which will be releasing very soon,” he adds.
