“I am delighted to see Satyajeet Jena from Anandapur make his place in the finals of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’L Champs show. I happened to see him on the show and have been very touched by his voice ever since. He has captured the imagination of the nation. I voted for the budding sensation and wish him the top honours in the show along with more successes in life,” Patnaik said.
During his performance on last Saturday, Satyajeet performed on the melodius ‘Mohabbat Barsa De Tu Sawan Aya Hai’ originally sung by Arijit Singh, written and composed by Tony Kakkar – who is brother of one of the judges Neha Kakkar.
