Aruginil, a single sung by our Malaysian born, Govin Raaj has hit international airways in a recent episode of BBC Asian Network presented by Ashanti Omkar. The radio network is owned and operated by the BBC.
According to Govin, Aruginil talks about a heartbroken guy, caused by a former lover who strung him along for her own benefit. “As cliché as it sounds, writing this song helped me get the closure I needed to move on & taught me to channel all that energy into producing something that is worthwhile,” said Govin.
His song debut is streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, JioSaavn, Amazon Music & several major streaming platforms.
The singer shared his joy on his Instagram handle;
Govin , who hails from Penang, is an independent artist who began his voyage as a dance choreographer .
He has performed on live shows and concerts and partnered up with a charity organisation and co-produced charitable concerts which featured artists such as singer Karthik, Reshmonu, Roshan Jamrock, Rabbit Mac, Yunohoo, Dieha Logan, Thyivya Kalaiselvan and many more.
Govin told Varnam;
“It has been my long time dream to venture into music production but the whole “frowned upon” view surrounding the music industry forced me to prioritise my professional career & put my passion aside.”
He then worked as a sales professional in the events & hospitality industry.
“ I continued working wherever my career was taking me for about 8 years. Unfortunately, I was one of the individuals to have lost my job recently due to the worsening pandemic situation. “
However, he succeeded in completing a song he worked on during the lockdown period whilst in the middle of a job search.
You are a great inspiration to the many growing artists out there, Govin Raaj. We wish you success in your future undertakings.
