Bhubaneswar: Odisha’s young singing star, Satyajeet Jena, is ruling the social media with his recent upload on YouTube hitting 977K views. He has sung the remix version of popular Spanish song ‘Despacito’ featuring pop singers Justin Bieber and Luis Fonsi.
“My Odia and Hindi song videos were very well appreciated. So, I tried singing something different this time. It took me around 15 days to pick the lines of this song and practice it well,” he said. The video has been shot at the lush green environs of Remal Dam near Keonjhar’s Anandapur, his native village. On being asked about how has the response been, he said, “I received tremendous amount of love and support for this video. There have been some negative comments on my Spanish accent, which I will work on and get better at.” His father Guman Charan Jena further added, “He has always been doing everything by himself from recording the song to editing the audio and video. Sometimes I help him, too. I am happy about his achievements but he still has a long way to go and so much more to learn.” Satyajeet of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs fame, had quit the show due to the transforming phase of his voice. He made his Bollywood debut with a song composed by Shankar Mahadevan, which he recorded with singing sensation Sunidhi Chauhan. Satyajeet has a few albums lined up. “I will announce about them soon. Along with studies, I am also training hard in classical music to fulfill my dreams of becoming a successful playback singer,” he added.
