By Easwaran Rutnam (@easwaranrutnam)

Manike Mage Hithe by Yohani and Satheeshan is in the top 10 of the global charts.

The Sri Lankan song is at number 7 on the YouTube global charts this week. The song was at number 6 last week.

‘Manike Mage Hithe’ by Yohani and Satheeshan has crossed 116 million views on YouTube.

The song drew India’s attention after Amitabh Bachchan shared a video of him dancing to the Hindi version of the track.

Bachchan had said that his granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda edited the dance sequence from his iconic film Kaalia and replaced the original song ‘Jahan Teri Yeh Nazar Hai’ with ‘Manike Mage Hithe’ in the video.

Later Tiger Shroff, Madhuri Dixit, Parineeti Chopra, musician Sonu Nigam and Indian music producer, composer and social media personality Yashraj Mukhate danced to the tune of ‘Manike Mage Hithe’.

In addition, an IndiGo air hostess also danced to the track in a viral video.

A number of covers have also been recorded of the song in different languages the world over. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Sri Lanka had amazing singers and songwriters. However, Yohani and Satheeshan are on the show, because of geopolitics. It is all about countering China.

  2. Really surprising as to where such hidden talents were suppressed till date. The song has taken over and swept off and would soon catapult into number one soon. Good rendition is always welcome and it’s to be emulated by one and all irrespective of what one’s mother tongue might be. Kudos to the team.

  3. Another eduacted illiterate making this political instead of appreciating the talent and enjoying the song.
    Good going girl, you have lovely voice.

    • I spent most of my time in libraries but South Asias would not write a sentence to utilise my knowledge to enlighten billions of foolish South Asians. However, they are going to dominate Asia and the world by singing ‘Manike Mage Hithe’. This shows that South Asians would only acknowledge something if the West does. Indian losers will pay a high price for having a lowest and useless mindset.

      • Lmao you are just using your tiny brain. Just enjoy the song dumb ass. Only Chinese smart people will understand this song. Go back to your library and read those kids stories.
