Drake Pays Tribute to Sidhu Moosewala at Concert
TORONTO, (ANI) – Canadian rapper and singer Drake paid an ode to the late Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala by wearing a sweatshirt that had Moose Wala’s picture on it. Drake, while performing at a concert in Toronto, wore a sweatshirt that had his picture and name written on it.
The video from the concert has now gone viral on social media and thousands of the late singer’s fans from across the globe loved the gesture. Right before starting the concert, Drake said, “I’m here tonight, grateful, just as a kid who grew up wide-eyed. I’m a fan; I’m one of you tonight. I’m grateful to be from the greatest city in the world…”
Drake started following Moosewala on Instagram in 2020. When the Indian was shot earlier this year, Drake expressed grief on the social media platform by posting a story in his honor.
Earlier, in the memory of Moosewala, his father Balkaur Singh paid an emotional tribute to the late singer by getting his face tattooed on his arm. A video was shared on Moosewala’s Instagram page in which a tattoo artist is seen painting the former’s portrait on Balkaur Singh’s arm.
Balkaur Singh also made the tattoo artist inscribe ‘Sarwan Putt’ (obedient son) on his arm in the Punjabi language. Sidhu Moose Wala’s mother Charn Kaur also got inked ‘Sarwan Putt’ on her arm.
Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead by assailants in Jawaharke village of Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29. The incident took place a day after his security was withdrawn by the Punjab police among 424 others.
