Daler Mehndi, Punjabi pop artist known for his groovy dance tunes, was the target of a spoof tweet on January 20 that stated Prince Harry featured him in his memoir ‘Spare’.
The post claimed that Prince Harry had said in his most recent memoir, Spare, that he had turned to the Indian musician in his darkest hours. Users had a field day responding to his message because they could not believe Daler had accepted a satirical piece as being genuine.
