There's no dearth of talent in our country who just need recognition. In the past, many talented people have got recognition after their videos showcasing their respective skills went all kinds of viral on social media. One such recent incident involves a singer named Shakeel. His video of singing Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye gained unprecedented momentum on social media in a very short span of time. In fact, actors Kunal Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan too praised him singing talent.

In the video, Shakeel is seen strumming a guitar and unleashing the magic of his beautiful voice in the presence of a few masked spectators. Towards the end of the video, the person shooting the video pans the camera towards a signboard which features a QR code for different online payment platforms along with a mobile number. "Thank you for your contribution, it pays my music school fees," reads the message on the signboard. The video ends with an individual scanning the QR code to donate for the singer's music school fee.
