Reggie Benjamin: the man, they myth, the tatti

People who are pigmentally gifted are sometimes placed in precarious position of having to support people just because they're brown. While I'm in favor of showing some love to the brown peeps to a degree, if someone sucks they suck. (to all my 12-year old fans in England I know you don't want me to say it, but that includes Raghav & Jay Sean, they're just corny)

Enter Reggie Benjamin, Indian-American pop hero extraodinaire. I first had the misfortune of hearing him at some tsunami relief benefit concert in LA in 2005, and my life hasn't been the same since. Somehow in a lineup that included Karsh Kale and Nitin Sawnhey, Reggie was the show's grand finale. He was awful. Incidentally he looked like a cross between Michael Jackson and Alien. Okay okay that's a bit of a low blow, but unfortunately that's the best part about him. Although he allegedly had "a hit song in Europe" he would bring shame upon any wedding band.

Sometimes life mimics bad reality TV. Sometimes things are so awful that you just want to see more of it. It's like watching little children fall in airports. It's disturbingly enjoyable. Although this may be sacreligious to say, "Saved By The Bell" may be placed in the same category of the "it's so bad it's so good" phenomenon. My interest in Reggie perked up when I saw an article about him in the reliable India Abroad which gushed over the newest (and only) Indian youth sensation who was set to perform at the Grammy's!....errr...jigga what?

Lo and behold somewhere between U2 and Coldplay's performance, Reggie was mysteriously missing. Maybe CBS censors had edited him out. Where could he be. He couldn't have been lying could he? Hmmmmmm. After a good tip off I decided to investigate. For those of you still reading, this is where it gets good. Your reward for flamboyantly showing off your literacy skills are about to come to fruition.

If you goto Reggie's website ("the man of inspired expression") it portrays our hero as being not only a superstar in the making (which honestly any good public relations effort should do) but a patron saint. More striking is the fact that he actually seems to be making inroads. He gotten letter from Jesse Jackson saying "how proud he is of an Indian making it," he was named the sexiest Indian alive according to some magazine, and he has his own charitable foundation for India. Quiiiite a resume. Quiiite. Surely that whole Grammy lie was the exception, right?

Let's go to the fact sheet:
  • The Jesse Jackson named is not the Reverend Jesse Jackson but rather some random dude in Illinois (well he's still a Congressmen, but who isn't these days?)
  • While I don't usually rank the sexiest Indian males alive, I'm pretty sure if I did it would not be Reggie (Abhishek Bachchan has him beat hands down). How could any magazine, in this case the South Asian-centric "BiBi" magazine, think that? Well as it turns out they did. (technically he's only one of 6 sexiest Indians, he's not the sexiest one) I'll say it right now, if this magazine is legit I'm ashamed to be an Indian. For the record in Bibi's top 6 rankings, one of the guys is only half Indian. WTF? There are 1 billion Indians in the world. More than 500 million of them are males. Are there really so few sexy Indian males that we have to resort to people who aren't fully Indian? Although to be fair, after some cursory observations in Bombay and Delhi, that may be true. Do we really have so few qualified people that a non-Indian can be considered a real challenge to be Indian Prime Minister? Okay so maybe that's true too...
  • Okay, on to the charitable foundation. I know some of you may think I'm stretching this hatred a bit too far, but seriously this is where it gets ridiculous. According to his website, Reggie's foundation "Hands 2 India Foundation was created to support and nurture America's 1st Amendment rights in India." Say what? Newflash! How can you promote Constitutional rights in a different country? Hell England doesn't have those rights, we should work on them first. You could even argue that we have to work hard to preserve those rights in America, and we're the ones who are supposed to have them. The site goes on to say "grants and awards are given to honor individuals in India whose actions have made signicant contributions" to this goal. Um, okay. This all just begs the question, who exactly has been recognized by such a noble foundation? The answer: Two people. The first, Playboy's very own Hugh Hefner. You've gotta be kidding me. When I think desi, I think Hugh. WTF. Reading between the lines Hugh's award only really came because Hugh allowed Reggie to film a video at his mansion. (this is what our parents meant by saying there's only low quality stuff in Playboy) You scratch my back I'll scratch yours. Okay, so maybe that's understandable...but who got the second award? Hmmm, I'll give you a hint, it's Reggie! Yes it's true, Reggie gave himself an award for being "The First Indian Pop Artist." I can't make this stuff. Sorry Bombay Vikings, Lucky Ali, Asha Bhosle, Lata, Kishore Kumar, or even Sonu Nigam (Nigam what?) As Bad Religion said, sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.
Okay so maybe I've gone a bit of out of my way to mock good ol' R.B. but someone had to say it. , I'm not alone in my disdain towards him. My favorite comment about him was on Sepia Mutiny where a comment about him prompted a reader to simply say "ugh this guy again?"

I heckled him at the tsunami charity event along with some others and I'll do it again. After watching his epic three song set I was left wondering, hadn't the millions of people affected by the 2005 tsunami already endured enough pain?

Dream is going down the drain, just like stardust, heck he is even promoting Dream2 now... Who in their right mind is dumb enough to go anywhere near this guy. Please everyone GOOGLE REGGIE BENJAMIN and learn all about him before you do business with this scum. I know personally many many people that he has screwed over, both from a business standpoint and even those considered his 'friends'. You are his friend until he has what he wants. He is like a slick snake oil salesman, watch your pockets, and do your research.

I only write this comment as a warning to those out there, if you get a funny feeling in your gut, don't ignore it. You'll be glad you did, and you will be able take comfort in the fact that as his ventures go down the drain, it was not your money greasing the pipes.

His ploy is that you invest in his nightclub, while the nightclub operates he keeps saying it will break even soon, and asks for loans to keep up with the operating costs. He tries to get as much money from you as he possibly can.

Once he gets the most he can from you in terms of money and services he does everything he can to try to stop you from coming around to collect. Some of his tactics include getting you really drunk and setting you up to act foolish, then saying we can't have you around the club anymore.

His money for his personal life comes from the skim the club gives him every time there is a big event. After big events you'll notice he and his girlfriend will start buying clothes, cars, and expensive jewelry. This skim is not a lot of money but supports him and his girlfriend. He pays the bills just enough to keep the club open for as long as he can. Then when the club goes under, so does the money you have invested, and the loans you gave out. After this he seeks more investors, and loans to open his next venture.

He also likes to hold events during non-operating hours without telling his partners to get some extra money which I'm sure he also pockets. After all no one knows but him!

Don't ever accept a check from this guy, they will always bounce even if they are over $1,000.00. Don't ever do work for this guy without getting paid in advance, otherwise you will never see your money.

Don't fall for this guys tactics he and his girlfriend are a total scam.

FYI for ever single person posting on this blog, Reggie Brnjamin is nothing but a complete scam artist. He hustled me and countless others losing well over 200k by overselling shares of stock in a nightclub in Chicago. He is a complete loser and wannabe. I wish this jerkoff nothing but misery in his lifetime. He has always been a social climber and name dropper, and after reading this crap I see he still is. If you know him or are "friends" with him, get out before you get burned. He's an opportunist and even worse, not a man of his word. He idolizes Prince, but falls so short of being just like him...I'm just sorry that no one got to him while they had the chance. He fu&@ed over many people. Loser.

ANY positive comments on this blog are coming from his snake of a sister Rena or himself, he likes to disguise his voice as a woman on the phone, I don't see what would stop him form posing as one on this site.

All sad but true. I personally know 3 people that lost over $500,000 to this buy. Anyone remember Stardust? Bellagio? Look him up in both Dupage and cook county court documents and you will see for your self. He burns all his "friends" sooner or later. His family ( especially sister Rena and brother Reno) are part of the scam. Oh, the girl voice that he so often did to avoid people...all true. Forging documents to vendors like Sysco ....all true. The scam is simple...get investors...show off there money...open the place...don't pay bills...place closes...money gone...regie moves on and to a new target...i can say more, but he is not worth it and we have all moved on..

Talk about a hot mess, here's a couple that define that here at the Emmys. Singer Reggie Benjamin sports a terrible dye job, a bad haircut, a terrible pinky ring and the Worst Suit Ever. His date doesn't fare much better with her bad platinum fluff of a hairstyle, her really bad eye makeup and bad shoes (you can't see them here, but trust me). I do like her dress, on a more positive note.
So who is Reggie Benjamin anyway? I Googled him to find out more about him and this unflattering article from 2006 came up in the top searches: Reggie Benjamin: the man, they myth, the tatti. The author writes, "Although he allegedly had "a hit song in Europe" he would bring shame upon any wedding band." Ouch.

All his accomplishments occured outside the USA so not as easy for people to verify. There are many evil people at work stealing thousands from the innocent.

It looks like the self proclaimed first indo American pop star has left the music industry? The new plan for the next decade is all roads lead to the oscars? The last 2 decades were a warm up and now Reggie who will be 50 in a few years will finally make his mark. Watch out world.

I haven't seen or heard from Reggie Benjamin in 10 years. He scammed me out of prob 5,000. years ago. I figured he was prob in jail or living on the street by now. I googled his name and I can't believe he is still around? How does this guy survive ? He never made a dime of his music?

Reply to Dino : Any idea how a con man functions? give him some money and see what happens. Is that why the monkey is living in a condo with so many liens on it, that it legally belongs to people that he has con, really he is just basically renting it. It is a scum family. I think he is mentally damaged.

Its been A while Since I posted and was Shocked to see a Article about Mr Reggie Benjamin, himself getting Endorsement deal, Because as we know he is man of Fitness( If you include sucking dick as a workout) He is a Amazing person, so full of shit, so full of himself with nothing to back up?? Most likely this new venture of self promoting is to try to further a career as a No- body, let make sense of it.. Reggie's Parents back home, because Of there Indian background, probably hound the guy and call him every day to tell him to come back home, because he has no job, so to satisfy his parents by showing all these pictures of him and celebrities, and this SO called endorsement deal, ?? Now his parents can go brag LOOK AT MY SON HE A STAR, HE FAMOUS..I have to admit, I like updates on Mr Benjamin, its so pathetic I enjoy it



Hard to imagine any company Interested in him, his look is out dated, no talent, what do you do with a short Brown guy with long hair that's receding?? Seriously what do you do with that? How do you market that??



What was funny is that so called article described as the sexiest Indian man??? lmfao.. and then the fact he is really into fitness?? LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did anyone else see that video where he claims to have eaten at the salvation army for 17 years??? WTF - this guy is from Hinsdale one of the wealthiest suburbs in Illinois.

Also another few things I want to make clear. If you look at any of his promo videos on youtube, the crowd shots are completely fake. The reason I know this is that I was at the so called All State Arena performance where he supposedly sold out the place with no opening act. In reality, the show was actually one of those Mega Star Bollywood shows where the actors come and sing and dance. He paid the sponsors to basically sing one song before the whole thing. I was there and the whole crowd was Indian and had no idea who this joker was. Nobody was clapping or cheering at all. Reggie actually spliced in footage of a completely fake white crowd. Unbelievable!

Looks like Reggie got a fake Wikipeda page now. Doesn't mention his cons? All about his fake accomplishments? This Tony guy who did Reggie sells out Allstate Arena BS should be in jail.

This message is for my brother man Mike Hurd. C'mon bro why you hanging with this fake Bollywood wannabe? You know the show at Allstate arena where you congratulated him for selling out the house was just wrong? He paid the promoter to do a song before the real acts that people were there to see performed. You went to LA to give him an award to himself? Bro your the pet monkey to a man darker in complexion than you? You are the white man in this relationship so act like it.

I truly believe Reggie continues the bullshit PR game not so he will ever get a legitimate Hollywood deal? Any legit production company or studio would have the means to do real due diligence and realize he is just fraud. I truly believe Reggie does all this to find the lone sucker here and there that he can con into investing into some BS scheme. He will con them to front him cash for a club or maybe some Hollywood project. He will show them all the pictures he has taken with celebrities or fake PR news releases to think that Reggie is a someone. The reality is he is just a short ugly balding man with a bad dye job from Illinois.

As much as you people hate Reggie you have to give it up to him. For 20 years he's been hustling around and not yet spent a day in prison. His girl may have to pick up dog shit to pay the rent but he has a roof to sleep under. He is a con man but a survivor . There is something to said about that.

This reggie guy is a total scam. He plays off being Indian and having all these accomplishments abroad? The truth is he is probably never been to India and his albums have sold so much as to buy a taco at Taco Bell. He has a buddy George from LA total Coke Head who gets him into LA party's . Him and his transvestie looking girl show up with there camera begging for pictures . It's so sad.
