Music composer and rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh and his team members have been accused of kidnapping and assaulting the owner of an event management agency over the cancellation of an event. The victim lodged the complaint on Wednesday, but Honey Singh has denied all allegations and called them “false” and “baseless” in an Instagram post.
In a statement on Thursday, the musician clarified that there is no connection or agreement between his company and the complainant, and that he had performed at the Mumbai show for the allotted time period. Honey Singh went on to say that the allegations are an attempt to tarnish his image, and his legal team is working on filing a defamation case.

According to the complaint filed with the BKC police, Honey Singh and his associates were dissatisfied with the cancellation of the music festival called “Yo Yo Honey Singh 3.0” and allegedly kidnapped, held captive, and assaulted the event organizer, Vivek Ravi Raman. The festival was originally scheduled to take place on April 15 at the MMRDA Grounds in BKC.
This is not the first time Honey Singh has faced controversy. In 2013, the musician faced public outrage over the lyrics of his song “Main Hoon Balatkari” (I am a rapist), which many found to be offensive and derogatory. Honey Singh later apologized and claimed that the song was never officially released.
