India’s rap icon Dino James has become the first rapper to win stunt-reality show “Khatron Ke Khiladi”. In its 13th season, “Khatron Ke Khiladi” is the Indian adaptation of iconic American reality show “Fear Factor” which was hosted by rap pioneer Ludacris in 2017.
The adrenaline-filled stunt-reality TV show, which first premiered on July 15th this year, reached its conclusion over the weekend. Filmed in Cape Town, South Africa, James battled it out against 13 contestants and took the trophy home.
Notably, James’ historic win arrives within months after Indian rap superstar MC Stan won the 16th season of Bigg Boss in February.
Earlier this month, James inaugurated The Dharavi Dream Project’s ‘Counselling Project’ to support and encourage mental health amidst the underprivileged youth studying rap music at the school.
Further, Dino James is slated to join another rap veteran and Kalamkaar-bossman Raftaar for a massive “Rap 91 Live Concert” by Spotify.
Reportedly, James and Raftaar will join Indian rap superproducers Deep Kalsi and Karan Kanchan alongside fierce emcee Irfana, Gully Gang-affiliate MC Altaf, Sambata, Raga, Riar Saab, D’Evil, Sammohit, Pho, DG Immortals, Krantinaari, Moko Koza, Tsumyoki, DJ Proof, Dee MC, DEEKING, OG Shez and underground consortium of Hip-Hop artists Marol Art Village.
