Big Deal continues to create ripples in the Indian music industry and continues to create meaningful and much needed socially conscious music that questions various injustices faced by the oppressed in our society and continues to criticise the power hierarchies that exist in our country boldly and with a hint of rebelliousness.
Born to a Japanese mother and an Odia father, Mohanty, the first Odia rapper shook the Odia rap scene with his very first Odia rap song ‘Mu Heli Odia’.
‘Mu Heli Odia’ is not only Samir’s first Odia rap song, but is also a first for Odisha too.
