During my school days, I used to dress differently to stand out. I believe in myself. I want myself to look different in a crowd of thousands. I have my own style. I would like to thank God that people have started copying my style. I like to present myself as original as I am original, that’’s it, said Jazzy B, the Punjabi pop singer.

Indian people, living in foreign countries, love to watch videos featuring villages of Punjab, as they don”t get that atmosphere there. They are more connected to Punjabi culture.
