Atif Aslam, Sonu Nigam to light up London’s East End


If evidence was ever needed that not only could India and Pakistan merely get along but make beautiful music together, one need not look any further than the pairing of Atif Aslam and Sonu Nigam.
And the dynamic duo – arguably the finest singers in their respective countries – are all set to return to the O2 this April, bringing with them a musical ‘Dhamaka’ that will light up the East End and put all that Olympics nonsense to shame.
Aslam and Nigam will each perform live for 90 minutes during the show, set for Sunday 22nd April, and will be supported by – among others – the Bolly-Flex dance troupe off TV’s Got to Dance.
The event is a bit of a coup for organizer Naz Choudhury who failed to secure investment for a Bollywood events company on the BBC’s Dragon Den in 2010.
Two years later, he’s managed to bring together two sub-continental music superstars to perform at what is possibly the world’s greatest stage.  Choudhury says, "Dhamaka doesn't represent race, faith or culture, it's about the passion for music, dance and unity. I'm proud to say it's about time a show of this calibre has come to my home town, the East End of London.,"
