Singer Mika Singh shared a picture of himself with Sonu Nigam and Shaan on Monday morning along with a cryptic caption, which prompted a reply from Sonu Nigam. Mika wrote: "Jab mai gata hu to aap dono suno. Tum bade bhai ho age mein. Everybody loves their voice and they just love my voice awe! I'm so lucky." Mr Nigam asked the 440 Volt singer to address him and Shaan as 'aap' instead of 'tum.' "Bade bhai hain toh 'Tum' ka istemal galat hai. 'Aap' par hi raho Chhote," Sonu Nigam replied. Mika, who is the younger brother of singer Daler Mehndi, is 39 while Kal Ho Naa Ho singer is 43.
 
 

In 2014, Sonu Nigam had filed a defamation case against Mika for using his picture in a hoarding without his consent. The hoarding carried a big picture of Mika and smaller images of other performers including Himesh Reshammiya, Shreya Ghoshal, Ayushmann Khurrana and Mr Nigam.

Sonu Nigam and Mika Singh have carved a niche for themselves in the music industry. While Sonu Nigam is known for soft romantic songs, Mika is popular for peppy numbers. Mr Nigam and Mika have collaborated for two songs for 2016's Santa Banta Pvt Ltd, starring Boman Irani. Sonu Nigam and Mika have together sung Tooti Boldi and Ishq Karle Anytime from the film.

Mika has also sung Dhingana from Raees, Whats Up from Phillauri, Chinta Ta Ta Chita Chita from Rowdy Rathore and 440 Volt from Sultan. Meanwhile, Sonu Nigam has partnered with Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar for a cricket-themed song.
