Sorry, Sonu Nigam. That's not a shaved head, that's a buzz cut

After Sonu Nigam's controversial remarks on Azaan and loudspeaker, a Fatwa demanded the singer to shave his head. Sonu agreed and what happened next surprised us all

It was only a couple of days ago that singer Sonu Nigam sparked controversy with his tweets regarding the Azaan and loud speaker. Soon, singer’s tweet became a topic of heated debate and discussions thereby leaving the fraternity as well as fans divided over Sonu Nigam’s statement over Azaan, Islam, and loudspeakers. Soon, it came to the notice of Vice President of West Bengal Minority United Council Syed Sha Atef Ali Quaderi who issued a fatwa against the singer.

Condemning Sonu’s viewpoint, Syed Sha went on to say, “If anyone can shave his hair, put a garland of old torn shoes around his neck and tour him around the country I personally announce an award of Rs 10 lakh for that person.” It seems Sonu Nigam took notice of the statement and decided to shave his head. Yes, the popular singer called a press conference in Mumbai and decided to speak about the whole controversy in detail.

When asked about him getting his head shaved, Sonu Nigam stated that he is ready to get it done. His friend Aalim Hakim was there to do the deed. Sonu took to his social media account and wrote, “Today at 2pm Aalim will come to my place, and shave my head. Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulavi.

He further added, “And Press is welcome to participate at 2pm.” The popular singer wanted to prove that his tweet was directed to the loudspeakers and not to the azaan.

Staying true to his words, the singer came back in a new avatar and this is how he looked:

However, what caught our attention was his latest hairstyle. Yes! He did not shave his head completely rather he got what is popularly known as the Buzz cut. This type of hairstyle is very popular among the footballers who have flaunted this kind of hair cut on and off the field. From David Beckham to French striker Karim Benzema, the hairstyle has been a rage among the soccer player for a long time. Take a look:
