SUMEET Tappoo's three-concert tour of Fiji came to a rousing end in Nadi on Saturday night, with the crowd's expectation of the rising star moved beyond words.

His performance at the Swami Vivekananda College and at Tilak High School in Lautoka were entertaining and the entertainer proved why he was one of the most sought after artists in India as he showcased some of his string of hits to a delighted crowd.

Bringing with him a new style of song and dance reminiscent of a modern day Bollywood movie, Tappoo and his group of talented musicians and dancers put on entertaining shows for his fans in Lautoka and Nadi.

Having performed with stars like Karishma Kapoor, Diya Mirza, Raveena Tandon, Celina Jaitley, Yana Gupta, Sonu Nigam, Asha Bhosle, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Kailash Kher, Daler Mehndi, Alka Yagnik, and Kumar Sanu, Tappoo sang some of Bollywood's classic and current hits that have been made more famous in movies.

Backed by an orchestra of nine musicians who are stars in their own right, the Fiji-born singer was in a league of his own as he thrilled fans with his classical and modern tunes.

Earlier, Pawon Promotions director Raj Bachu said he was thrilled to be promoting the rising star.
