Do you remember singer Prakash Paudel? If not, do you remember a song “Naai Malai Tehi Keti Chahincha" – a cry rap song. Yes, Prakash Paudel is the same singer also known as Runche Gayak due to his first smash hit song “Naai Malai Tehi Keti Chahincha”. It has been 8 years since he entered the music field with his first album 3 Much, released by Moonlight Records. The debut album consisted of different experimental and comedy songs and it introduced him to the Nepali music industry as an experimental singer. The listeners have appreciated his talent and that album had done excellent business on its release.
Prakash is known for new and experimental types of songs. A whisper song “Kasailai sa bhannu la” and a lok-rap and comedy songs like “Doctor saabh vitamin lekhdinus na”. His fun filled songs are mostly popular among children and youngsters.
