It is said that the language of music is universal. Music can bring together people of different cultures, communities and countries - and proof of that rests in this video that is currently going viral on the Internet.
In 2003, Sonu Nigam gave us the gem that was the title track of Kal Ho Naa Ho. Now, 15 years later, a melodious rendition of the evergreen song, sung by a Nigerian man, is winning hearts all over again.
The video was shared on Twitter by user Ali Gul Khan, who wrote: "I swear Nigerians watch more Bollywood than Indians". It shows three Nigerian men, with one singing Kal Ho Naa Ho and the others joining him in the chorus. Their brilliant performance has earned them a lot of love and viral fame.
