As enablers of the project, we at JetSynthesys are looking forward to catering to the diaspora globally and the Indian music fans back home. It has been a thrilling ride, to say the least, and we’re excited to see how music aficionados take to these assets.”

“It’s been a seamless and enriching experience, partnering with JetSynthesys, who, through its many entities, enabled a series of NFTs that reflect a rare and exclusive part of my life. I am also looking forward to connecting with new, digital-first music lovers through this industry-first initiative. I’m delighted to launch this single, which is the most precious and closest song to my heart: Hall of Fame – and this is my ode to all music lovers,” added Nigam.
