Will A R Rahman become the next Lata Mangeshkar?

This is not with reference to his singing skills, but with reference to award monopoly.
Lata Mangeshkar had taken voluntary retirement from the awards scene - to allow new talent to be recognized. There were other talented performers during her reign, but she was the most loved by the award committees, hence the monopoly.
Considering that A R Rahman is what he is (a magician), and (now more than ever before) the pride of India, would he end up like Lata Mangeshkar?
