If someone had told us a year ago that a song about peanuts would be going crazy viral on social media, it would be understandably hard to believe them. However, in a span of just a single month, 2022 has managed to achieve this unimaginable feat and how! Among the very first social media trends and most viral songs this year is the 'Kacha Badam' song. Unless you have been living under a rock, you would know of this addictive tune that has caught the fancy of millions of users on Instagram. Popular influencers and dancers are now shaking a leg to the beats of this catchy song and raking in views by the minute. But how did the Kacha Badam song originally come into existence? What made it the sensation that it is today? Here's all you need to know.
As you can imagine, the Kacha Badam song originated from the most unlikely of sources. The song is the brainchild of Bhuban Badyakar, a peanut-seller from West Bengal. He is a resident of the Kuraljuri village in Lakshmi Narayanpur Panchayat of Birbhum
district. Badyakar travels to nearby villages and sells peanuts by weight in exchange for bangles, trinkets and other valuables. The Kacha Badam song is his way of attracting new customers and announcing his arrival to them.
