Jersey City, NJ: With Bollywood superstar Salman Khan Tweeting about the Video of Indian American Kid Rapping, Sparsh Shah, a 12-year-old Indian American rapper based in New Jersey, got global recognition. Salman Khan on March 14 tweeted a video of him rapping to Eminem’s song “Not Afraid.”
The video of this boy sitting in a wheelchair and rapping was posted on YouTube at the beginning of this year, Jan. 2 — don’t miss the decorated Christmas tree in the background — but, post-Khan’s tweet, it got over 1.6 million hits. No mean feat by any stretch.
When Khan Bhai (known to applaud and promote true talent) posts something on his Twitter page, his fans sit up and notice — the Tweet was liked by 7,000 fans and re-tweeted over 3,000 times.
After the video was posted, everyone wanted to know more about the talented rapper. His Twitter page describes him as “a singer/song writer/rapper born with brittle bones (120+fractures), but an unbreakable spirit,” and states, “He aspires 2 sing in front of a Billion people one day.” Now that’s quite a dream. Shah noticed Khan’s Tweet and thanked him promptly in a Tweet.
