Sidhu Moose Wala, real name Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, was 28 when he was shot dead in Punjab. Drake had taken to his Instagram Stories the day after Sidhu died to pay his respects. Sharing a photo of Sidhu and his mother, the musician wrote, “RIP Moose”, adding a bird emoji. Drake also paid tribute to the singer when he launched a new radio show last month. In the first episode of his show Table for One, he performed two Sidhu songs – 295 and G-Shit.

Producer Gaurang Doshi previously said Drake was a “huge fan” of Sidhu, who was also popular among other Western rappers. Gaurang told ETimes, “Do you know that Drake follows Sidhu on Instagram? Drake follows him, but Sidhu hasn’t followed him. Drake is a huge fan of Sidhu Moose Wala.”
