Sidhu Moose Wala, an Indian rapper turned politician whose songs racked up more than 4 billion views on YouTube in less than four years and was shot dead while driving near his home in India on Sunday. He was 28 years old.
The musician was shot dead by an assailant while driving in the Mansa district of Punjab, India. Cruel videos and photos taken on-site were posted on social media, showing that the driver’s seat in a bloody black SUV was depressed. When a bystander tries to take his pulse.
The footage of the aftermath of the attack, reviewed by Rolling Stone, shows Mahindra Thar, a type of Indian jeep full of about 14 ammunition holes. At least 30 bullets were fired by the shooters, according to VKBhawra, Punjab Police Chief.
He added that the bullets come from at least three different weapons and hold responsibility for the competition between Moosewalla’s manager and the Canadian organized crime group.

According to the Hindustan Times, the rapper’s real name is Shubhdeep Singh and he was hit by eight rounds. One of the others in the car with him at the time of the attack subsequently died of his injury, the newspaper reported.
With its first song released in 2017, Moosewalla quickly jumped out of India, becoming one of India’s most powerful music exports across generations, spotlighting America’s most popular contemporaries. I have solidified my position as an Asian rapper.
“There are few real contemporary artists in India. He was at the top of the list,” tweeted Indian musician Vishal Dadlani. “He is a legend and his voice, his courage, and his words will never be forgotten.”
With thunder traps and drill beats, samples of Punjabi music were frequently mixed, and Moosewalla was trapped with a rich and soaring voice about gun violence, gangsters, and his shabby stories.
He was named one of the best new artists of 2020 by the Guardian and seems to have caught the attention of fellow rapper Drake who followed him on Instagram that same year. (Drake subsequently shouted out the slain rapper on his Instagram stories on Sunday afternoon.)
More recently, Moosewalla won 36,000 votes in the Indian state elections in February (second place in the race) and began working on Bollywood films as one of the country’s most famous entertainers. I confirmed my position.
His murder caused a war of words between Indian rivals who accused the ruling party of Punjab of allowing the murder to occur.
“Today, young Punjab singer Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead in state-sponsored murder. The AAP government is entirely responsible for this,” said a spokesman for the ruling BJP party in India.
On Saturday, the state government in Punjab announced that it has reduced its police security for several well-known personalities in an attempt to redirect its security forces elsewhere. The names of those who lost their security details were later leaked, with critics saying the move had left those individuals vulnerable to attack.
Moose Wala was among a list of 122 politicians who have removed or withdrawn their bodyguard teams this weekend. Law enforcement officials in Punjab confirmed that Moose Wala still had two armed security guards, but decided not to travel with police protection on Sunday.
Protests against the state government coincided with a crowd gathering at Mansa Hospital, where Moose Wala was taken after the shooting.
Following the news of Moose Wala’s death, Rahul Gandhi, leader of one of India’s largest political parties, tweeted: “Deeply shocked and saddened by the murder of Sidhu Moosewala, a promising Congress leader and talented artist.” “My heartfelt condolences to his loved ones and fans from around the world.”
Moose Wala, who joined Gandhi’s Congress party in December of 2021, said his desire to enter politics came from the belief that he could change the system from within.
The day he joined the party, he said, “I am not entering politics to earn status or acclaim.” “I want to be a part of the system to change this. I am joining the Congress to raise the voice of the people.
