Singer Sonu Nigam lambasted social media users and a segment of the media for assuming he remarked on the BJP's defeat in Faizabad, which houses Ayodhya and the freshly erected Ram Mandir. The Lok Sabha election results were announced earlier this week. The BJP gained several constituencies but lost in Ayodhya. Sonu's namesake, Sonu Nigam Singh, took to X and chastised Uttar Pradesh people for voting against the BJP. The post went viral, with everyone assuming the man commenting on it was Sonu Nigam, the musician.

The post

Taking to his X handle, a guy named Sonu Nigham Singh wrote, "The government that beautified the entire city of Ayodhya, built a new airport and railway station, rebuilt the Ram temple after 500 years, and established an entire temple economy is now competing for the Ayodhya seat. People of Ayodhya are ashamed!" 

However, it was later brought in by singer Sonu Nigam that it was not him, but another guy of the same name.

Sonu Nigam's post 

"I'm wondering how anybody, especially the news networks that mistook him for me, didn't perform a basic sanity check by reading the account description. His handle reads Sonu Nigam Singh, and the description says that he’s a criminal lawyer from Bihar."
