Prior to his concert in Mumbai, Ed Sheeran to tattoo 'Shape of you singer' on his arm so that his fans recognize him

Ed Sheeran, the famous singer and song-writer who recently got very famous in India with his track ‘Shape of you’ will be visiting India in November for his concert, which will take place in Mumbai.

But inside sources say that before his visit to India for the concert, Ed Sheeran is going to tattoo ‘Shape of you singer’ on his arm so that his fans in Mumbai recognise him.

We felt that this was unnecessary as many fans know him and his work very well, but just to be sure we conducted a survey of our own. Our reporter interviewed random people at famous public spots in Mumbai like Marine Drive, Worli Sea Face, CSMT station (formerly called CST), Kabootar Khana, etc. and asked questions about Ed Sheeran to know how much they know about him and the results were shocking.

The first question was ‘What is the name of the singer of Shape of you?’ Apart from few right answers, most people replied with answers like ‘I don’t know, I don’t even understand the lyrics’, ‘Some white guy’, ‘How does it matter?’, etc. One person even replied ‘Ded Sheeran’. We assumed he was a Salman fan and that there was a typo in the second word of his answer so we let it go. Our second question was ‘Name just one other song of Ed Sheeran apart from Shape of you.’ Again, we got surprising answers like ‘I’m in love with your body’, ‘So the bar is where I go’ and even ‘I don’t need to prove it to you’.

Our third question was a trick question ‘Which band does Ed Sheeran sing for?’ (he is not in any band), to which we got shocking answers like ‘Metallica’, ‘Linkin Park’ and ‘Greenday’, which was quite natural as the answers to our last question ‘Name few foreign bands you know’ too were ‘Metallica’, ‘Linkin Park’ and ‘Greenday’. After the survey we realised that Ed Sheeran is taking the right decision and we hope that after seeing the tattoo, his fans recognise him and put better selfie captions than ‘Me with Shape of you singer’.
