DIVINE To Perform In Chennai's Sunburn Arena

Posted at May 2nd, 2019 | by Shank | in Dance Music, Entertainment, Events, Featured, India Tour, News, Nightlife

The man of the moment, Divine is all set to land in the Tamil capital to bowl over fans from South India on 12 May at the Chennai Sunburn Arena and this is a call for all the fanboys out there to get their passes and freak out with the lyrical genius. Born Vivian Fernandes, his breakout track ‘Mere Gully Mein‘ proved to be a nationwide sensation and this goes to show how a niche genre like hip-hop can also be made palatable to the masses in India if done right, of course.
This Gully Boy drew inspiration from American rap god 50 cent when Vivian was in 10th grade and the wordplay and stage prowess of the New York street hustler gave him the energy and drive to relate and conspire to create his own material in a similar streetsmart vein. The Andheri rap scene was abuzz during this time with rap battles taking place on designated spots and kids jiving and dissing one another.
But when Gully Boy, the movie released , the larger fan base was created and this man became a viral artist with screaming fans in tow. Ranveer Singh may have played the part but rappers like Divine and Naezy are responsible for the wave of rap that has taken the nation by storm. From small scale gigs to attracting the best crowds, this young man is living the life of a music icon and the sky is the limit for him.
