Singer Sona Mahapatra has defended expressing her happiness New York Times Square billboard appearance. Sona tweeted about celebrities feeling proud of their faces featuring on New York Times Square billboard.
But on Saturday the singer reacted to a tweet which mentioned how Times Square Billboard are just paid advertisement. One of a journalist writes in his tweet, ""Billboard at Times Square" is the new "My film at Cannes"- softly forgetting to mention, "Not selected; just a stall at market section (for prostective buyers)." Technically, anybody can - if people for it no? It's a hoarding! (Happy to be corrected , if I'm missing something here)."
On his reply, the singer write, the music industry have no celebration of artists, no real music industry, mostly only hope of the film industry. Music streaming global name is featuring a spotlight on some of us, brave selection this was not paid form celebration by the way, it's me not Tulsi Kumar. And says don't be crab Mayank.
Spotify had featured the singer on their billboard a week ago. Speaking with Hindustan Times, Sona had named the feature, a pop- culture is a milestone for any artiste. She have been to Times Square and would normally hang out there. She is grateful that they recognise the fact that she using her voice to go beyond just music and stand for a better world, however clichéd it sounds.
