Badshah was initially married to Jasmine, but their marriage ended in divorce in 2020. According to reports, he met Isha Rikhi at a party hosted by a mutual friend. Badshah had previously tied the knot with Jasmine, and the couple has a daughter named Jessemy Grace Masih Singh, born on 11 January 2017. In October 2022, there were reports indicating that Badshah was in a relationship with Punjabi actress Isha Rikhi.

Career

He embarked on his music career under the moniker “Cool Equal” before adopting the name Badshah. His inaugural foray into rap was in the 2007 song “Soda Whiskey.” Widely recognized for his trademark catchphrase “it’s your boy Badshah,” stylized as “Ish yo boy Baad-uh-sh-aa-ah,” he gained prominence with the 2012 hit “Get up Jawani” from the album International Villager. Following this success, he parted ways with Honey Singh and Mafia Mundeer.

On August 7, 2020, Badshah released the classic pop and hip-hop album, ‘The Power of Dreams of a Kid,’ featuring collaborations with artists such as Lisa Mishra, Sikander Kahlon, Fotty Seven, Bali, and Music Producer Andy Grewal. Simultaneously, he unveiled the song “Saturday Saturday” with Indeep Bakshi, marking his first venture into lyric-writing, music composition, and solo rapping. In 2019, his track “Paagal” achieved a record-setting 74.8 million views on YouTube within 24 hours, although YouTube did not officially confirm the record. Sony Music, Badshah’s label, acknowledged using Google AdSense advertisements to boost the song’s promotion.

Badshah’s music found its way into various Bollywood films, including ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania,’ ‘Kapoor & Sons’ (with the Haryanvi hit “Kar Gayi Chull”), ‘Khoobsurat,’ ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan,’ ‘Sanam Re,’ ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil,’ ‘Veere Di Wedding,’ and ‘Nawabzaade.’ Notable collaborations with Punjabi artists like Gippy Grewal, Diljit Dosanjh, Manj Musik, Raftaar, and Aastha Gill produced several hit numbers. His 2020 release, “Genda Phool,” under Sony Music India, showcased his continued musical prowess.

Badshah’s debut single, “DJ Waley Babu,” swiftly ascended the iTunes charts within 24 hours of its release, garnering 1 million views in just 30 hours. In 2016, the collaborative effort “Wakhra Swag” with Navv Inder made waves. However, controversy arose when Bengali artist Ratan Kahar claimed original ownership of the folk song used in the track. The following year, Badshah’s single “Mercy” also achieved massive success, accumulating millions of views shortly after its release.

Badshah’s approximate net worth is estimated to be around USD $10 million.
