‘Bad man’ Gulshan Grover, you are in Tampa, NOT Orlando, for IIFA!

April 25, 2014

Good morning readers:

We have a hilarious IIFA tidbit to share for you, which doesn’t appear has been put out there in the media. At the IIFA Stomp kickoff night on April 23, ‘Bad Man’ Gulshan Grover was on stage to pump up the crowd. But the poor guy got the name of the city he was in for IIFA totally wrong. ‘Bad Man’ goes “Orlando, Orlando.” It appeared that he thought he was in Orlando, not Tampa, and had to be corrected by someone on stage that he was indeed in Tampa, not Orlando.

Go Tampa Bay!
