Speaking of the concert, Shafin Ahmed of Miles said, “A special feature of Sonar Bangla Foundation is that the organisation assists in the treatment of kidney patients. This disease is acute in Bangladesh and the patients need financial help.”

“I appreciate their initiative. I myself have extended a helping hand and will be performing in the concert,” he added.
