Everyone has a favourite musician and with this, a dream that one day they will be able to meet them. Desi-Box recently held a competition to allow this to happen for one lucky winner. The musician was in fact the well-known Urban Punjabi artist, Imran Khan. With hits such as Amplifier, Ni Nachle and Bewafa all under his belt, it came as no surprise that we had the entries pouring in.
In the end, the lucky winner was Raffana Kauser. The news bought tears, of happiness of course, because for her, this was a dream come true. She said: Meeting Imran Khan has always been on the top of my wish list, Desi-Box box has fulfiled this wish for me! On her experience of meeting the artist, she added: Imran Khan was really chilled out and spoke with respect, he signed my arm, some photos and a t-shirt for me!
Desi-Box don’t do things by halves so rather than just meet the artist, we added an extra touch of exclusivity by allowing her to meet Imran backstage. In addition to this amazing experience, she also got to see him perform, live! The performance was held by Kandy Nights in Revolution Bar, London.
It wasn’t just Raffana who enjoyed the experience, Imran Khan also felt delighted to meet one of his loyal fans in person. This is not the first competition Desi-Box has run with the artist. All the way back in 2009, we held a competition for one lucky fan to go bowling with him which was of course, equally as great an experience for both the competition winner and Imran himself.
This is just one example of the importance of musicians to give something back to their fans by showing an interest and taking time out of their busy schedules for competitions such as ours.
