It was our first collaboration. We have already shot 3 songs. One with Jason Derulo, one with Lil Pump and Honey Singh and one with Rick Ross, Swae Lee. Sidhu Moose Wala’s part was the only one pending. We were about to shoot in fact. The next day after I met Sidhu, we had plans to record at night and shoot the video the next day.”
“But Sidhu was not in the zone. He requested to do it the next time. I sensed that he was in great tension. He had an expo show as well, but even there he sang only 4 songs and left the show. He said that he came to Dubai because things were relaxed there. Things were also relaxed in Mumbai. Here, he would go to the malls and enjoy himself. Punjab at the moment is very volatile though,” added the producer.
After his killing, Drake had also shared Insta’s story in his honour to remember the singer. The rapper also followed Sidhu on social media.
