Bhuban Badyaka was a peanut seller in West Bengal, before his viral success. He used to sing the song “Kacha Badam” to sell his product, and became famous when one of his customers posted a video of him singing on social media.
An India Today report said that Bhuban is a resident of the Kuraljuri village in Lakshminarayanpur Panchayat of West Bengal’s Birbhum district. His family includes his wife, two sons, and a daughter. He used to make around Rs 250 a day before finding fame.
In an interview with AajTak, he spoke about his overnight success and said that he had no idea that his song would become so popular. “I just want people to know about my song and I want the government to help me with some funds to make some permanent living arrangements for my family. I also want to give them good food to eat and good clothes to wear.”
Just last week, he was reported to have performed at a Kolkata club.
