Its a good day for Southern music fans & artists across the globe as media guru, former ‘editor in chief’ of Thamarai.com and an advocate for all things Southern, Ashanti Omkar has her own show on the BBC Asian Network, a UK based BBC radio station serving the South Asian audience.

Wilson Raj Perumal has been labelled the world’s most prolific match-fixer in football’s recent history.
