Singer Mainul Ahsan Noble has apologized for his recent activities on his verified Facebook page and deleted some of his recent posts which roiled netizens.

Noble said he was summoned at the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) office after people had criticised some of his social media activities.

“Perhaps, I’ve done a bit too much. People have become angry with me. I am apologizing for that,” Noble said in a video message.

Noble rose to fame after obtaining third position in popular Indian music reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’.

On Tuesday, Noble posted a status on Facebook which drew flak.

He said there is no achievement of Bangladeshi singers in the last decade and he even wished to teach songs to the legendary singers of Bangladesh.

Music lovers came down heavily on Noble’s Facebook status terming it a sheer arrogance.

Additional superintendent of police Monir Zaman on Sunday evening summoned Noble to the RAB-2 office at Agargaon.

“The police official talked to me for an hour at the RAB office. He behaved well with me. He counselled me about my recent Facebook posts. I later understood my mistake and posted a video message,” Noble said.

Contacted, ASP Monir Zaman said, “Noble can’t post Facebook status insulting other singers like the way he did.”

“Noble said it was a strategy for promotion of his upcoming song. But it can’t be any strategy,” Monir said.

He said Noble confessed to his mistake.

Asked, Noble told Prothom Alo that his song title ‘Tamasha’ will be published from YouTube channel Nobleman within 7 June and he has done all that as part of marketing strategy for that song.
