Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, better known as Sidhu Moose Wala by his huge fanbase. He was a Punjabi singer, rapper and Congress leader who had risen to fame with his track, So High. The following year, in 2018, he had released his debut album, PBX1. Since then, he had never looked back and had given one after the other hit tracks. One of his independent songs, 47, was also ranked on the UK Singles Chart, and many more.
Coming to his controversial lyrical style, Sidhu Moose Wala was also known for often promoting various attitudes, feelings, values and behaviour of a society, or any social group, in which guns are used. However, this had also hurt many religious sentiments. For example, one of his songs, Jatti Jeonay Morh Di Bandook Wargi released in 2019, had begun a controversy regarding the 18th-century Sikh warrior, Mai Bhago. Reportedly, the singer had accusedly shown Mai Bhago in a poor light, however, Sidhu Moose Wala had also apologised for the same.
On May 29, 2022, Sidhu Moose Wala left for the heavenly abode after he was shot in Mansa, Punjab, by armed people. This incident occurred after the Punjab police had withdrawn protection from the 424 people, including the Punjabi singer. Reportedly, the security was withdrawn post the Bhagwant Mann government's exercise to crack down on VIP culture. After being shot, the singer-turned-politician was also rushed to a nearby hospital, however, he was declared dead.
For the unversed, Sidhu Moose Wala had participated in the Punjab assembly election of 2022 as a Congress ticket holder from the Mansa district of Punjab. However, he was defeated by Aam Aadmi Party candidate, Vijay Singla by a huge margin of 63,000 votes. As per media reports, in Sidhu Moose Wala's latest song of April 2022, named Scapegoat, the singer had targeted the Aam Aadmi Party and its supporters and had also called the AAP supporters as 'gaddar'.
RIP Sidhu Moose Wala!
