Wonder should it not be illegal to ban someone on the pretext of nothing in a democracy? Influencing others to not work with an individual.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 28, 2015
Well legal or illegal, one thing's for sure. Banning someone, is definitely unGodly.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 28, 2015
I Am Grateful for all your support. I would wanna believe that the negativity wouldn't last too long.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 29, 2015
Soon after Sonu tweeted about the ban, the hashtag #IStandWithSonuNigam started trending on twitter as the Twitter world came in support of the renowned playback singer.

As per ABP report, "now Zee Music will not buy any music with ‘Sonu Nigam songs' as they have put a ban on him."
