If there's one celebrity who owned 2013, it's Honey Singh. From 'Angreji Beat' to the latest 'Blue Eyes', Hirdesh Singh or 'Yo Yo Honey Singh' is easily the man of the moment.
However, things were drastically different for the rapper around this time last year. Accused of penning offensive lyrics of two songs, Honey Singh was engulfed in controversies. Outrage against the rapper's derogatory songs flooded social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter too. The biggest blow came when he was forced to cancel his New Year's Eve show in 2012 following protests in the backdrop of the Delhi gang rape incident and an FIR was filed against him in Lucknow.
He's come a long way since. He's proved that there isn't anything he can't bounce back from. While 2012 clearly wasn't his year, 2013 belonged solely to him. Fans and haters alike can't ignore this Hoshiarpur artiste who has taken the country by storm and is enjoying a wave of success in Bollywood with compositions like 'Lungi Dance' and 'Party All Night'. Here's why it was great being Honey Singh this year.
