When you turn your wounds into wisdom, you don’t need an external stimulus to help you make the most of your life. Praise Dino James for doing exactly that all the while setting an excellent example for all his young fans.
A young man from Bhopal, Dino James came to Mumbai a few years back like several others in the hopes of becoming an actor but evidently, life had other plans. After a few setbacks early on and a grueling phase of depression and suicidal thoughts, Dino decided to take things in his own hands and spun his worries into gold. He decided to give life a second chance via his music. He took to YouTube and started uploading his songs with an objective to reach out to a wider audience as well as motivate the youth. With motivational anthem like rap songs to his style, today he is one of the most well-known YouTubers with just 8 songs; 700 thousand subsribers and over 32 million views on his channel.
Widely known for his songs ‘Loser’ and ‘Yaadein’ that hit close to 10 million and over 7 million views respectively, Dino credits his personal life being the source of his content. Overcoming extremities at a very young age in life, Dino empathizes with the youth and is in a sense an icon to today’s youth. He recently collaborated with Akriti Kakkar on Valentine’s Day for a song called ‘Tujhe Meri Yaadein’ which received over 2.5 million hits. His recent single ‘Unstoppable’ has been on the trending spots for weeks heavily promoting the spirit of “not giving up” no matter what life throws your way!
