Canadian rapper Drake paid tribute to Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala — who was killed last month in Jawaharke village in Indian Punjab’s Mansa district — on the first episode of his radio show Table for One.
During the radio show that aired on Saturday, the 'Hotline Bling' singer promoted his new album Honestly, Nevermind and also paid tribute to Moosewala, who was gunned down a month ago.
On the radio show, Drake started off with his album and spoke about it being his first show on radio. He also said that the reason behind the name of the show is because oftentimes he heads out and gets a table to himself and likes to zone out.
The Indian Express cited Instagram account Hip Hop N More and said the 35-year-old rapper played Moosewala's hit singles '295' and 'G-Sh*t'. The first song, according to the post, made it to the Billboard Global 200 chart and claimed the number three spot on YouTube's Global Music Video chart.
On May 29, the 'Scapegoat' singer was shot dead. Many musicians sent their condolences, including Drake who took it to his Instagram stories and had written ,"RIP Moose" with a photo of Moosewala and his mother.
The 'Calaboose' singer has had past musical collaborations with a number of artists, including British rappers Stefflon Don and MIST, Indian-American rapper Raja Kumari and Pakistani-American rapper Bohemia.
