The murder of Punjabi rapper Sidhu Moosewala has sent shock waves across the world. People from the entertainment industry are reacting in disbelief to the death of the 28-year-old in a shooting incident. The latest to join the long list of celebrities reacting to the killing is the ‘Brown Munde’ hitmaker A.P. Dhillon.
The Punjabi Canadian singer took to his Instagram and shared that although Moosewala is not more with us, his legacy stays alive. Dhillon also highlighted how difficult it was to be a “Punjabi artiste behind the scenes on a daily basis”, in the face of “constant judgment, hate-filled comments, threats and negative energy.”
The singer, whose ‘Brown Munde’ music video featured the departed Sidhu, wrote in the story section of his Instagram: “Most people will never know the extent of what you have to deal with as a Punjabi artiste behind the scenes on a daily basis.
“With constant judgement, hate-filled comments, threats and negative energy directed towards people like us, who are just doing what we love.”
In his tribute to Moosewala, A.P. Dhillon also said: “I always admired how Sidhu was able to rise above it all. He made it look easy and stayed true to himself. Today, I am praying for his family and our community. We need to do better.”
Moosewala was gunned down on Sunday while driving his SUV near his ancestral village in the Mansa district of Punjab, a day after his security detail was withdrawn by the Punjab government.
