Fijian-born Bollywood singer Sumeet Tappoo promised fans who missed out on his two concerts over the weekend that he would be back next year.

“We apologise to the people who were not able to get the passes for the concerts but I assure them that we have been approached by various organisations and are looking at bringing us back in Fiji next year,” Mr Tappoo said.

More than 200 people enjoyed an evening of romance with live performance by Mr Tappoo at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva on Saturday with his opening concert attended by over 3000 fans at the FMF Gymnasium.

While singing soulful new Bollywood songs, the Lions Gold “Best Emerging Singer of 2014” award winner also paid tribute to the legends of Bollywood such as Mohammad Rafiq, Mukesh Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Jagjit Singh.

“I am really humbled and honoured to perform for Fiji,” he said.

During the concert, Mr Tappoo acknowledged his wife, Krupali Tappoo, for being his biggest support.

“I am fortunate to have my wife and daughter by my side that are my biggest support and inspiration,” Mr Tappoo said.

He was amazed by the response he received from all over Fiji when more than 4000 people attended his two concerts.

Mr Tappoo was born in Fiji and an MBA graduate from Australia. He is married with a daughter and currently lives in Mumbai, India.

He has been performing on stage worldwide for the past 28 years; his first stage performance was when he was an eight-year-old.

Mr Tappoo has performed over 500 concerts in India, USA, Canada, UK, South Africa, Mauritius, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, and in Fiji.

His latest album Destiny comes after previous labels Pankaj Udhas, Anup Jolata and Talat Aziz which was launched by Amitabh Bachchan.
