Singer Neel Akash attacked by Changsari Music event organizers

Popular Assamese singer Neel Akash had to face the wrath of Changsari Bihu organizers after an ugly tiff broke out between the singer and the organizers of Bonmaja Bihu on Thursday night. Bonmaja is in Changsari.

After the singer was interviewed to speak on this incident, the singer said, “I came to perform at Bonmaja for the first time. The unwanted situation arose due to their (organizing committee members) faults. First, the organizing committee entered into a deal with a fake manager representing himself as the organizing head. The initial amount provided by the committee was Rs1,50,000. Later, the fake manager along with two organizing committee members made a pact with me at Rs 3,40,000.

He added, “But when we asked for the remuneration, the organizing committee developed a lackadaisical attitude and was not keen on paying us the money. Due to which, we had to stop the programme midway. Following several requests from them, I agreed to perform again and also returned the advance payment of Rs 25,000.”

He stated that after performing for “free” for two hours when he was leaving the venue, some of the organizers started to abuse him and attack his musicians.

“All of a sudden, they turned violent and broke my musical instruments,” said Neel.

A case has been registered in this regard and the singer and his manager were questioned.
