At the party, the two DJs first played house music. It was followed by Shaggy playing some of his own tracks, and then they moved to Bollywood songs.

DJ Khushi, who has worked on hit remixes of several hit Bollywood numbers including the hit 'Chammak challo', told IANS: "I have been a Shaggy fan since I was a kid. We all have grown up listening to his music and for me, he is the king of reggae.

"Performing with him was a dream come true. The stage presence was awesome and he knew how to get everyone involved and get the party going. He has been to India before and loves it."

From Delhi, Shaggy left for Dubai, according to his Instagram update on Thursday.
