She is also a huge social media star in India, with 61.7 million followers on Instagram, while emerging as the second most viewed female artist on YouTube globally with over 4.5 billion song views.

Meanwhile, Stebin Ben will be singing all his major hits like Mera Mehboob, Baarish, Baithe Baithe and many more.

Organised by BCC Events and TW Entertainment, doors for the Dubai gig will open at 8pm, with the concert starting at 8.30pm. Attendees do not need to be vaccinated in order to be permitted entry into the event. This is a fully seated event.
