BU Media left no stone unturned in creating the perfect night of entertainment which was nothing short of magnificent. The sensational trio live in concert was undoubtedly one of the best live concerts to hit Durban. With world-class performances from the finest artistes of the Indian Music fraternity Benny Dayal and Shalmali Kholgade with Gurmeet Choudhary – Durban was left enthralled!

Benny Dayal is the ultimate powerhouse of talent. He is the true definition of a showman. He is the epitome of entertainment.

Benny Dayal sang an amazing variety of music from his great repertoire of music and Bollywood classic. He is a versatile singer with an amazing voice and fabulous dance moves. Durban certainly loves Benny Dayal. He is the artiste of today. He is voice of the youth and ultimately the biggest stars of contemporary Indian Cinema.

Audiences journeyed with the gorgeous and chic Shalmali Kholgade on a passionate journey of music during her solo performance. She is an artiste who feels her music and sings from her soul. She is brilliance in motion, her stage presence is unparalleled – Shalmali exudes confidence as she sings dances and entertains. She is a world-class performer like Benny Dayal. She is graceful, stylish and transforms into the ultimate stage Diva! Shalmali is Bollywood’s answer Broadway! Her ability to sing and simultaneously dances so divinely is only comparable to Shakira. Shalmali is the best female artiste both live in concert and as a playback singer. Durban will surely be seeing this singing sensation many more times in the future. I described Shalmali as an enigma of sheer talent because what we have seen thus far is just the beginning of an incredible journey as she has much more to offer the music industry with her boundless talent and vivacity.

When two amazing performers of such great calibre come together you can only expect perfection. When Benny Dayal and Shalmali Kholgade performed together it was magical!
