"The only thing that matters is justice for Sidhu."
Gippy Grewal has paid tribute to the late Sidhu Moose Wala on what would have been his 29th birthday.
The singer was shockingly murdered in a shooting on May 29, 2022, while he was out in the Jawaharke village of Mansa district in Punjab.
An investigation is still ongoing in order to identify and arrest those responsible.
June 11, 2022, would have been Sidhu’s 29th birthday and fellow singer Gippy Grewal shared an emotional post.
Alongside a few pictures with Sidhu, Gippy wrote:
“Sidhu dreamed that the Punjabi industry should be at No 1.
“He said that our competition is not with each other but with international artists. But now everyone in the Punjabi industry is blaming each other.”
Addressing the ongoing investigation, Gippy continued:
“Be smart and realise that things like who did what doesn’t matter.
“The only thing that matters is justice for Sidhu.
“The only thing one can do is visit Sidhu’s parents at least 2-4 times a year because we should become like their son, Sidhu, and offer them, love.”
Gippy had previously issued a warning to those who leaked Sidhu’s unreleased or unfinished music.
In a statement, he said: “We request all the music producers Sidhu has worked with in the past, to refrain from releasing or sharing his finished/unfinished tracks.
“If his work gets leaked, we will take legal action against the individuals involved.
“Please hand over all the content to his father after Sidhu’s Bhog on June 8th.”
Punjabi singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh also paid tribute, writing:
“Creativity and music can never go away.”
