Sidhu SYL, the last song by Moose Wala, was released after the Punjabi singer was brutally murdered in broad daylight earlier this month. For fans of the late singer, the song was an emotional experience. They were, however, disappointed to learn that the song had been removed from YouTube. SYL, Moose Wala’s song released after his assassination, the title referring to the Sutlej-Yamuna Link canal, was recently removed from the video streaming platform. When you click the video link, a message appears that says, “This content is not available on this country domain due to a legal complaint from the government.”
SYL by Moose Wala has received over 27 million views on YouTube and 3.3 million likes since its release. The song mentions undivided Punjab, the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, and shows the Sikh flag being hoisted at the Red Fort during the farmer agitation. The song about Punjab’s water issue mentions the Sutlej-Yamuna Link canal, which has long been a source of contention between Punjab and Haryana.
Composed by Sidhu Moose Wala before his death on May 29, the music video was released on YouTube on Friday, June 23 by producer MXRCI.
On May 29, assailants shot and killed Sidhu Moose Wala in Jawaharke village of Punjab’s Mansa district. The incident occurred a day after Punjab police removed his security, along with 424 others. Notably, the singer joined the Congress party in December of last year, ahead of the Assembly elections. Goldy Brar, a Canadian gangster, claimed responsibility for Moose Wala’s murder in a Facebook post. Goldy Brar is a close associate of gang leader Lawrence Bishnoi, who is the primary suspect in the murder of the Punjabi rapper.
