Singer Sonu Nigam visited Odisha’s Jeypore on Tuesday to perform at a concert organised by Biju Yuva Vahini, youth wing of the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) which holds power in Odisha at present.
The 41-year-old singer suffered from a major bout of allergies due to consumption of seafood and was rushed to a hospital in Mumbai, a day prior to his Odisha tour. However, he asked his agent not to cancel the event and flew to Odisha to keep his professional commitment.

Thanks for your concern and love. Now that you know that I am returning back from Jeypore Orissa after managing a concert last night, I now don’t mind sharing how I was the day before yesterday. 😇 Lesson for all of us, Never ever ever ever take a chance with allergies. Sea food in my case. If Nanavati Hospital wasn’t near by, my trachea would have swollen up further and lead to asphyxiation. Happy and Healthy life to everyone. #health #lifeisbeautiful #goodfortune
He mesmerised his fans with his popular songs such as Deewana Tera, Suraj Hua Madham, Hans Mat Pagli, Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin and renditions of Kishore Kumar songs like Pyaar Maanga Hai Tumhi Se and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. He even interacted with the audience and entertained them by singing the words ‘Odisha mein aaye hai toh Odia sur mein gaayega’.
His fans in Jeypore appreciated his professionalism and took to social media to express their love for the Bollywood playback singer.
Sonu Nigam also thanked his team, support staff and doctors in Odisha who aided him in giving a lively performance.
