Question 555: Where Wil there be my Simple Superstar?

This currently iconic man came from very humble beginnings. Or atleast so his website says.
He was born somewhere in a remote village Tamil Nadu. Despite being from a family of modest means, his inclination towards music and entertainment helped him grow as an all round entertainer.Or atleast so his website says. Even as a child, he performed locally for his family and friends. Initially, he juggled small time entertainment with other more indigenous professions but after a point his need to entertain overtook everything else and he quit in order to pursue his musical destiny. Or atleast so his website says.

This musical sensation has incorporated many socially and topically relevant notions and concepts in his compilations and has received substantial public support. Or atleast so his website says.
Despite facing criticizm and awkward Borat references, this man is all set to leave his mark on the world. With several tours and launches and what not in his kitty, he's here to stay...and make a difference...and God knows what else.
Well some of it his website says.

Id the man.
Also, don't visit the website.
Oh, and tell me what your favourite song of his is.
If you don't have one, bonus points for you.



Please Check My Blog (one of his "songs")

Since this is a blog, and you know, the song's about blogs...and...yea.

Born in a small town in Tamil Nadu, India, Wilbur Sargunaraj grew from humble beginnings.  From an early age, Wilbur was different. He loved to sing, to dance and to entertain his parents and the local community.  He pursued his dreams while working in traditional Indian jobs.  Yet these jobs would not hold his future.  His need to entertain and educate, overwhelmed his career so he quit his day jobs to carve out his dream.  Now, Wilbur is taking the world by storm and bringing his unique combination of dance, drumming and musical humor to fans around the globe.  His approachable nature has allowed many to find him as not only an inspiration, but a friend.
Dance King, Drummer, Musical Sensation, Wilbur Sargunaraj is one of the most original talents the music industry has ever seen.  His self titled and self released debut album “Wilbur Sargunaraj” continues to rake in impressive reviews while the super hits “Love Marriage” and “Cricket” have people across the globe begging for more.  With the release of Wilbur’s video for “Love Marriage” on YouTube, he saw over 100,000 views the first week, and has already sailed past 600,000.
Now with an increasing passion to make the common man, woman, child and cause, an object of extraordinary importance and significance, Wilbur has created a growing movement of social media buzz around the concepts of Cultural Intelligence.   His desire to bring not only equality to the globe, but unity has not been matched in recent history.
Watch out for Wilbur as he takes the world by storm from Chennai to L.A and from Tamilnadu to Tokyo! This man is really one of a kind

(Courtesy the website you shouldn't visit)
Oh, what the heck. Go visit it if you feel like.

Personally I prefer his "how to" videos.

He's often referred to as the "Poor Man's Borat"
Because rich people watch Borat?
Pfft, yeah right.
