After one year, the singer complained that he cannot sing his own song since he is duped.
Talking to OTTplay, Bhuban Badyokar said that a music label wonder, made him sign the wrong documents. “Gopal Ghosh of Godhuli Bela Music told me that he will register my song Kacha Badam to IPRS or Indian Performing Right Society Limited so that I get the royalty for the use of the song. He made me sign papers and gave me Rs 3 lakh. Then I realised he duped me. Now if I make a YouTube video with Kacha Badam, it gets barred. I was supposed to get money for using my music and instead, I am being barred from singing my own song. Gopal Ghosh is not taking my call,” said the singer.
