Celebrated artist Kr$na, whose work has been heavily rooted in reality and social situations, added,

I am looking forward to this MX TakaTak LIVE with my listeners and hopefully helping them fight the stress of these tough times. I released an album called ‘Still Here’ 2 months ago but due to the pandemic, I haven’t been able to perform it for a live audience so this is a perfect opportunity for me to do so and hopefully bring smiles to some faces through my music.

The pop sensation, Arjun Kanungo sharing similar sentiments as the other artists said,

Small beginnings lead to big things and this is my small way towards keeping the spirits high of all my fans and followers. I’m excited about performing for you guys so don’t forget to stream the live session exclusively on MX TakaTak.

We are super excited to watch these talented singers perform live on MX TakaTak. It truly is going to be an experience that will help refresh everyone’s minds and uplift their mood too.
