Desi Hip Hop is proud to announce our content partnership with QYOU India, enabling hip hop in South Asia to reach 17+ millions of viewers every week.

Tata Sky Chief Content Officer, Arun Unni commented: “Catering to audiences’ changing preferences and tastes has always been the core focus for Tata Sky.”
DHH CEO Hardik Dave stated, “Our primary goal at Desi Hip Hop Inc has always been to raise global awareness for South Asian Hip-Hop culture. Partnering with channel QYOU gives Desi Hip Hop reach to over 17M viewers on Tata Sky in India and over 100M globally. Join the revolution, witness the rebirth!”
Spreading the word about Hip Hop as a culture is of utmost importance and is no less than the need of the hour. For the culture to sustain independently it is crucial for the audience to be made aware of its existence. Needless to say the South Asian community is well unaware of hip hop as a genre and has many misconceptions about it. DesiHipHop.com has always tried to bridge this gap and our partnership with QYOU India is another step in the same direction.
