Kolkata: His foot tapping number ‘Champion’ topped the music charts last year. And West Indian star Dwayne Bravo, is again going to make us dance to his tunes as he is set to produce another track, and this time, it would include Indian captain Virat Kohli and the iconic Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
In a video uploaded by the Gujarat Lions on Twitter, the all-rounder is seen talking with his step brother Darren Bravo about his new song where he sings, “Let us go over to India, India, India. I call up a boy named Kohli, Kohli, Kohli. We tell him to WhatsApp Dhoni, Dhoni, Dhoni.”
And the Bravo brothers end up in laughter as soon as the song finishes. Darren Bravo, is a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders squad led by Gautam Gambhir.
However, this isn’t Kohli’s ‘debut’ in a music track by Dwayne Bravo. He had earlier featured in the West Indian’s song named “Chalo, Chalo” which also featured cricketing stars like Kieron Pollard, Mike Hussey, Irfan Pathan and T20 king Chris Gayle.
His “Champion” song, released last year during the T20 World Cup drew in a lot of fans across the globe and had instantly become an instant hit. It became a regular party number everywhere and Dwayne Bravo, gained a lot of reputation and fame as a musician. And his earlier successes might have led him to venture into the music industry once again.
Despite being such a popular figure in world cricket, Bravo is yet to play a single match this IPL franchise Gujarat Lions after he sustained a hamstring injury while playing in Australia’s Big Bash League last December. And his team has dearly missed his services as the Suresh Raina led franchise are languishing at the bottom of the IPL points table and have had a very dismal season so far.
However, the good news for the Gujarat franchise is that Bravo recently said that he is just a game or two from returning to action in the IPL.
Already a loved figure in India, Bravo’s decision to involve two of India’s most popular cricketing stars in his song would do a world of good for his fan following in the country, that loves it’s cricket and it’s music as well.
