Rap culture is spoiling music: Ghulam Ali

New Delhi: The excessive use of rap music in today's movies and albums is "spoiling the real culture of music", Pakistani ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali said in Delhi on Thursday.

Asked to comment on the rap culture, the legendary singer told IANS: "Rap culture is spoiling the (original) culture of music. One should understand that."

Ghulam Ali, who has been facing protests by a section of society here over his Pakistani origins, also slammed the increasing usage of "double-meaning words" and "cheap" words in the songs these days.

"Today's music has become such wherein even if put cheap words in a song, it will still be loved by people."

He described Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam as his favourite Indian singers.
