On 24th February 2012, Sandhu Entertainment hosted a meet and greet dinner at Cheema da Dhaba as lead-up to the Mafia Mundeer concert. The concert was held the next night on 25th February, 2012 at the Roxy Hotel in Parramatta. Both events were a huge success.
Mafia Mundeer are currently on tour of Australia. The artists came to Sydney after a successful show in Brisbane. Mafia Mundeer is a music group out of India signed to Speed Records. Artists include Punjabi rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, singer Alfaaz, JStar and Money Aujla amongst others. They specialise in Punjabi music aimed mainly at a younger audience. Mafia Mundeer music is also hugely popular outside of India with fans of the group located all over the world.
Mafia Mundeer artists collaborate very well with each other and their chemistry is reminiscent of the Rishi Rich Project in its heydays when Juggy D, Rishi Rich, Jay Sean and Veronica were working together. Songs such as ‘Haye Mera Dil’ and ‘Yaar Bathere’ show that these artists seem to have a special understanding with each other in the studio.
Honey Singh, also known as Yo Yo Honey Singh, is recognised as the best Punjabi rapper from India. With hits such as “Angreji Beat” “Brown Rang” and “Gabru.” He has been dominating the music charts since the release of his album International Villager in November, 2011. The album was the most anticipated of 2011 and delivered with its deep, expressive music gaining instant approval by the fans. Apart from being a skilled vocalist, Honey Singh is also a music producer having studied at a prestigious arts college in England. He produced the well-known hit “Lak 28 Kudi Da” and many other hits such as “15 Saal.” Yo Yo Honey Singh is considered the most talented artist amongst the Mafia Mundeer group.
When JStar, Honey Singh, Alfaaz and Money Aujla finally arrived to the dinner at Cheema da Dhaba in Granville, a sense of excitement filled the restaurant hall. A positive atmosphere was created with those in attendance able to meet their idols up close and personal. Though they only appeared at the event for about an hour, they were able to please all of the fans that flocked to the event. The dinner was very well organised as the artists greeted guests, taking photos and signing autographs before they made their way out of the restaurant. Before leaving, Honey Singh encouraged everybody to attend the concert and promised that the group would not disappoint with their live show the following night.
After the artists left the building, dinner was served. The Chef at Cheema da Dhaba prepared a variety of traditional Indian dishes very well. Waiting staff were also very accommodating to guests. Overall, everybody was satisfied with the program and the hospitality provided at Cheema da Dhaba. The dinner concluded after Midnight as guests slowly made their way out after an entertaining experience. Mafia Mundeer artists had set the tone perfectly for what would be a highly anticipated live concert at the Roxy Hotel Parramatta, Sydney.
