Indian talent outshines all in singing contest in UAE

Newsgram Staff Writer

 Abu Dhabi: It was a moment of pride when an Indian-Pakistani duo and an Indian solo singer won highest awards in a singing contest in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Deepak Sharma, 25, from Rajasthan and Tayyab Tahir, 24, from Lahore were announced as winners of the ‘Camp Ka Champ 2015′, on Friday. ‘Camp ka Champ’ is UAE’s largest and only singing contest for the labour community.

They both were overwhelmed on winning the contest. These winners say that they were totally untrained and considered themselves as bad as bathroom singers. None of them was  a professional or even a part-time singer. They were not even willing to take part in the contest initially as Deepak was against the idea of participating in it. But later on they were convinced to take the auditions. To their surprise, the chance they took proved to be greatly rewarding. “We love music and that is what spurred our bond,” Tahir said.

They won 35,000 Dirhams ($9,530) worth gold and return flight tickets to home countries, Khaleej Times reported.

Meanwhile, another Indian, Mustakkim Shaikh, won the title of “Singer of the Season” in the contest. He too wasn’t a music trainee. This 26-year-old technician was happy to win a cash prize of 35,000 Dirhams ($9,530).
