MUMBAI: Super rapper, Honey Singh once again showed his profound love for sports by becoming owner of a team in World Kabaddi League. In sync with his name, he has christened it Yo Yo Tigers and will host the Toronto leg.

The record breaking artist and heartthrob of millions of fans across the globe is himself a trained mixed martial art expert and follows sport very closely. Addressing a press meet at Delhi, Singh also announced that he will soon be unveiling the title track for his team. ?I have already planned to roll out my next title in support of my team. It will not only be a peppy number but will be a source of encouragement to my fellows,? Honey Singh said.

World Kabaddi League (WKL) is the first international kabaddi league coming out of India and is scheduled to roll out from August in a high profile event in London. Played in Circle style, WKL is loosely based on the Formula 1 touring sport format and will be the first Indian sports league with an international footprint and a 5 month long calendar. Circle style is the most popular kabaddi format internationally and is played across 26 countries globally.

?Ladna, koodna, khelna hamare khoon main hai. There are many sports personalities in my mother's family. I follow all high action sports and World Kabaddi League is great initiative to contemporise Kabaddi and position it as a professional sport. I urge all my fans to extend their support in making World Kabaddi League one of the biggest sporting events,? the youth icon said.

Speaking about the association, Pargat Singh, Commissioner, World Kabaddi League, ?We are extremely delighted to have Honey Singh?s association with World Kabaddi League. Honey Singh is a youth icon and with his endorsement kabaddi will surely be seen in a new and modern outlook attracting younger audience. After Akshay, Honey too joining the Kabaddi bandwagon....World Kabaddi League has definitely gained momentum.?

Earlier this month, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar also endorsed the League by buying a team. The actor has always been enthusiastic in promoting fitness and sports which encouraged him to take this decision. He believes that Kabaddi is an authentic sport that puts up raw power for display and keeps the adrenalin rushing at all times. WKL will be presented to its fans in a new avatar and will innovate by adding more action oriented elements to this maiden Indian contact sports thereby making it television friendly.
