Narayan Gopal, a tabala player

Vocal Test at Radio Nepal

Before starting singing and being established as a well known singer, Narayan Gopal used to be a Tabala player. He was really shy about singing. His close friends Manik Ratna and Prem Dhoj Pradhan knew his singing talents. So, they secretly submitted a vocal-test form to Radio Nepal. When it was time to go for the test, Narayan Gopal wasn't willing to go to Radio Nepal. Manik Ratna and Prem Dhoj had to forcefully take him to Radio Nepal.

That was the incident of around 2013 BS. The identity of Narayan Gopal changed as soon as he passed the vocal test.
