"Singers Amar Singh Chamkila and Amarjot were gunned down; folk singer Dilshad Akhtar was shot dead during a performance. Punjabi actor Veerendra was also shot dead. It's very unfortunate to lose Punjabi artistes to violence." The decision of the AAP government to reduce security comes under the scanner too. Singer Shankar Sawhney says, "Well, it's true that some people seek security for 'taur', but there are some genuine cases too. The government should have verified before pulling off the security." As for his music, Shankar adds, "Changa singer si, ant changa nahi hoya." Born Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu in village Moosa, Mansa, Punjab, Moosewala did his engineering from Ludhiana, where he also learnt music, before moving to Canada. His big success came with gangster rap So High in 2017. While his songs of guns and violence won him fame, he also hit the headlines for being on the wrong side of law. Debuting with single G Wagon, So High got him worldwide recognition. His hits included Issa Jatt, Tochan, Selfmade, Famous, Warning Shots, Legend, 47, Game and Bambiha Bole.
