The video starts with the cameraperson asking Sunny Baba (that’s what he identifies himself as) a few questions about himself and what he does for a living, to which he responds in English with ease.
Sunny joyfully says he begs for a living and loves singing and dancing during his spare time.
But, the real magic begins in the latter half of the video where Sunny Baba surprises all of us with his soulful voice and flawless singing skills.
We aren’t sure if this video is old or not since, you can notice the busy street behind him but, it was shared by a Twitter user on 20th April.
Well, old or not we are damn impressed with Sunny Baba and we think he deserves all the love and attention he is receiving on social media.
There must be a story behind his begging. Whatever it is, he sings damn good.— Kamalesh Tripathy A Banker (@calllmekt) April 21, 2020
