Singer Sidhu Moose Walla’s song “SYL” was released on his YouTube channel tonight, weeks after his death. The song, released by his team on his official YouTube channel, garnered over a million views within an hour of its release.
SYL, written and sung by Moose Wala, is the first song released after his death. The problem with the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal, Punjab’s right over the river water and Sikh prisoners languishing in prisons are among the problems highlighted in the song.
The song was released a day after it was leaked on Wednesday, a few days after an appeal from Moose Walla’s family to all music producers not to share or release any of his unfinished tracks with anyone other than his father, Balkaur Singh .
Balkaur Singh would take the last call on his son’s pending and unpublished works.
Following the release of ‘SYL’, several fans shared emotional messages to the singer in the comments section. One user wrote: “No one can ever be able to replace him …. Always in our hearts …. Keep listening to this song with tears in my eyes …”
“Miss you Ustaad. Long live in the heart mere Bhai. Sidhu Moose Wala Legend JINDJAAN,” wrote another.
Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, known by his stage name Sidhu Moose Wala, was shot and killed in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29. Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi has admitted he was the mastermind of the killing and had been planning it since August last year.
