I’m really impressed with Foji’a music videos, ironically, I was chatting with a Bay Area artist, Hari-B yesterday and just raving about how Foji just jumped out of nowhere. For an artist up for a newcomer award, he produces quality videos – WITH A  STORY. Now folks in Birmingham, UK will get a chance to be in one of Foji’s music videos! He’s inviting all races to come out and jam with him at Birmingham Town Center, March 5th. In this video, shows everyone how to do the dance steps. Watch carefully, practice hard and good luck!

Foji Gill on a Revolutionary Path…

14Aug

Foji got a wonderful write up in “The Times of India” I have often praised Foji for the cinematography effort he puts in his music videos. While everyone is out celebrating India’s Independence day, this year Foji brought Shaheed Bhagat Singh in the limelight again. Surprisingly 2nd and 3rd generations of Desis have little idea who Bhagat Singh was and his contribution as one of India’s freedom fighters. With the adrenaline pumping video, hopefully it will grab the youths attention to read up on Shaheed Bhagat Singh. The immaculate detail Foji puts in the video – blows my mind! He shot the video in a tiny village, Muskhabad, near Samrala. Congrats on making headlines in India Foji! You got fans in America, who can’t wait to see you!

Foji new single – Shaheed Bhagat Singh

Yesterday on SimplyBhangra, they debuted Foji Gill’s new video “Shaheed Bhagat Singh” Foji is quickly gaining a rep for producing amazing videos to go along with his singles. His first single “Dafa Ho Ja” featured Miss Pooja and created a strong buzz, with the lingering question … Who is Foji Gill??? It’s becoming clear he’s not a “one hit wonder” but someone who is giving the scene a strong jolt of creative flare!

The video is a tribute to the freedom fighter that Foji admires…

Dafa Ho Ja staying strong for 19 weeks…

Foji Gill jolted us with “Dafa Ho Ja” which I loved the music video for this song, I would rave about it on my radio show… I loved the old school style with traditional beats. For the past 19 weeks, Dafa Ho Ja has stayed in the top 10 on the “Official Download Chart” on BBC Asian Network. The single dropped on Feb 26th, every one wanted to know… who is Foji?! I remember Bobby Friction interviewed him, when Bobby took over the Charts show on the BeeB. He’s young and has already proven he’s no “one hit wonder” in the scene. Miss Pooja was featured on the track (folks who listen to my show loved Foji vocals with Miss Pooja up in the mix). Dafa Ho Ja probably saved me one too many times, when I would constantly get bombarded with Miss Pooja request.

His new single, Bruahhh, is currently number 1 on the SimplyBhangra Charts, Foji is gearing up to launch his forth single. The single is going to be dedicated to his hero, Bhagat Singh. The music video will be shot in rural spots in Punjab, he’s definitely setting trends in the Asian music scene.
