The Pakistani born singer, music composer, and pianist Adnan Sami took to Instagram to lash out at the Indian music ‘mafia’ for trying to play God. It seems like Mr. Proud-to-be-an-Indian is not so proud anymore.
After the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, a lot of Bollywood celebrities have demanded a change in the way things are controlled in India’s film industry. With Sonu Nigam raising serious concerns about the ‘mafia’ run music industry, Adnan Sami backed up his statement with an Instagram post.
Here’s what Adnan Sami said
Adnan took to Instagram to share his views on the matter. According to him, there is extreme exploitation of talent in the music industry, and if things aren’t contained at this stage, everything might fall apart.
In an elaborate post, the singer wrote:
The Indian film and music industry seriously needs a ‘Herculean’ shake up. Especially in the context of music, new singers, veteran singers, music composers and music producers – who are being exploited to the hilt! Fall into the diktat or you’re out. Why is creativity controlled by those you have no clue about creativity and are trying to play god.
He also added that the talented people of India are capable of more than just remaking and remixing old Bollywood songs.
We have 1.3 billion people in India by the grace of God. Are remakes and remixes all we have to offer? For God’s sake, stop this and allow the truly talented new and veteran artists to breathe and give you creative peace musically and cinematically!
Sami wants the authoritarians to learn from their history. According to him, there is no way art can be controlled.
Have you, the movie and music mafia who have arrogantly entitled yourselves as the ‘self professed & self appointed gods‘ not learned anything from history?
Haven’t you learned that you can never control art and the ecosystem of creativity of any field? Enough! Move over, change is here and it’s knocking on your door! Ready or not, it‘s coming in! Brace yourselves!
He ended the post with an Abraham Lincoln quote:
As Abraham Lincoln said – ‘You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

It seems like Adnan Sami, who was proud to be an Indian, has all of a sudden taken a u-turn. Does he want someone to notice him and say ‘mujhay bhi koi lift karadey?‘
