Sidhu Moose Wala: Punjabi singer and rapper shot dead

MAY 29 — 5:30 PM

Musician whose real name was Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu was killed a day after his security cover was withdrawn

Indian police are investigating the murder of a popular Punjabi rapper a day after he was fatally shot.

His latest track, The Last Ride, was released this month.

Moose Wala who blended hip-hop, rap and folk music, started off as a song writer before a hit song in 2017 catapulted his singing career, making him well known among the Indian and Punjabi diaspora in countries including the UK and Canada.

Most of his singles have an English title, though the songs were mainly sung in Punjabi. His glossy music videos often focused on macho culture. His debut album in 2018 made it to Canada’s Billboard albums chart.

Moose Wala was a controversial figure, in part because of his lyrical style. In 2020, police charged him under India’s Arms Act for allegedly promoting gun culture in one of his songs.
