Who is Canada-based Punjabi singer Shubh whose India tour was cancelled after social media backlash? | Music News
The India tour of Canada-based Punjabi singer-rapper Shubh stands cancelled. The move comes days after the singer, previously known as Shubhneet Singh, shared a distorted image of India’s flag on social media and drew criticism from many. He was scheduled to visit several cities in India, starting from Mumbai on September 23.
The ticket aggregator BookMyShow, which was selling tickets for Shubh’s show, cancelled the show and promised a refund to its patrons. It shared on X, “Singer Shubhneet Singh’s Still Rollin Tour for India stands cancelled. To that end, BookMyShow has initiated a complete refund of the ticket amount for all consumers who had purchased tickets for the show. The refund will be reflected within 7-10 working days in the customer’s source account of the original transaction.”

Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) President Tajinder Singh Tiwana claimed that Shubh supported Khalistan and separatists through his social media posts. He said, “We won’t let singer Shubh perform in the auspicious land of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Mumbai. If no proper action is taken then the organisers will have to face our protests.” They have also demanded that an FIR should be filed against the singer.
Shubh became a prominent name after his 2021 single “We Rollin” became a rage among the Punjabi diaspora across Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia. Later, his songs ‘Elevated’ and ‘Offshore’ also became popular among the fans of Punjabi music.
A few days back, the singer faced the consequence of his action as the brand boAt withdrew its sponsorship for his India tour. It shared an official statement on X that read, “At boAt, while our commitment to the incredible music community runs deep, we are first & foremost a true Indian brand. Therefore, when we became aware of the remarks made by artist Shubh earlier this year, we chose to withdraw our sponsorship from the tour.”
