Sukshinder Shinda waited 17 years for sequel to hit song

The iconic Punjabi bhangra artist, Sukshinder Shinda who  joined the Punjabi music movement at its peak in the UK  along with the likes of Malkit Singh among others, waited  17 years before he mustered up enough courage to make a  sequel to his hit song, 'Sohni Lagdi.' Having released the  sequel, in an interaction with ETimes from the UK, Shinda  says this was stopping him all these years. Artists make  sequels all the times, and even remix and re-release their  own songs. Why did it take you so many years for the  same?  You see, I don't believe that if a song has done well, there  needs to be a sequel to it. Why? What's the need? Well,  that's what kept me from revisiting the song for 17 years. ​ Also, doing rap in Punjabi is not easy. The lyrics are fast and  in their fast tempo, they also have to make sense, they  cannot be gibberish. To make something intelligent in that  fast pace requires lots of time and effort. So, what is special about this song? The fact that I am remaking a sequel in itself makes it  special (laughs). I didn't want to lose the flavour of the first  song that had done so well, so I retained the lyricist and  dear friend, HMC who also lives here in the UK . It had been  long since people were pestering me for its sequel, so finally  I thought in the lockdown, why not, let's do this and see  where this one lands. You have also done several collaborations, with over  200 artists, including international ones. What  influences have you imbibed from them in your music,  and vice versa? Right from Jazzy B  to  Amrinder Gill , Diljit Dosanjh to Rahat  Fateh Ali Khan, I have collaborated with a lot of artists. I  have not tried to impose my own style onto them in the  process of collaboration, instead I tried to do it their way so  that even they can have fun working with me and not get  bored following my pattern. One of the most soulful  collaborations I have had was with Gurdas Maan saab.  That man is a sufi at heart and in his voice.
