For the records, Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu (11 June 1993 – 29 May 2022), better known by his stage name Sidhu Moose Wala, was an Indian rapper, singer and songwriter.
He rose to the mainstream with his track “So High”. In 2018, he released his debut album PBX 1, which peaked at number 66 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart. His single “47” was ranked on the UK Singles Chart. In 2020, Moose Wala was named by The Guardian among 50 up-and-coming artists. He is generally regarded to have been one of the greatest Punjabi artists of his generation. Moreover, he was considered a key figure in opening the door for Punjabi artists into mainstream music.
Moose Wala was shot dead by unidentified assailants on 29 May 2022; a Canada-based gangster, active in Punjab, claimed responsibility for the killing, which the police said was a culmination of inter-gang rivalry. On 23 June 2022, his first posthumous single, “SYL”, was released.
