Akhil on Gurugram concert: Punjabi singer Akhil recently faced backlash from the public for organizing a LIVE show at Gurugram on June 5 within few days of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala's unfortunate death.
Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead on May 29 and the singer's demise left everyone in shock. As a tribute to the singer, several artists from the Punjabi industry cancelled their shows and projects. However, Akhil was bound to perform on June 5 at Gurugram. Soon after the show, netizens mocked Akhil and allegedly claimed that the singer should not have performed as the industry is going through the dark phase.
Akhil has now issued a long-statement explaining the reason of why he was bound to perform and could not cancel the event which held on June 5 at Gurugram.
Akhil said, "5 June wala show cancel karan lyi saada organisers naal bohat jhagda hoya, bohat keha ohna nu ki deposit wapaas le lo, par plz eh kamm naa kro, par ohna ne tickets sold kartiya si, har jagah Promotions ch paisa laga dita si, te upro mere te legal action karan nu keha."
"So Aapsi sehmati naal eh show kisi tarah mainu 'MAJBURI' ch launa peya."
"Mainu baaki artists da nahi pata, jihnane shows laaye te kyu laaye, par main 7-8 saalan toh industry ch haan te aj tak koi kamm eho ja nahi kitta jis naal kisi da dil dukhe, kisi nu maada nahi boleya live aa kr te naa he publicity layi gaalana kadiyan te naa he koi eho jeha kamm kitta ki mainu mere fans te parents aage sir jhukauna pawe."
Further Akhil also mentioned that, he kept quite as he though that this is not something to talk about at this hour but now as the topic goes out of hands, it was necessary for me to explain my reasons for doing the show. The singer further states that there are some outsiders who are trying to divide the artists. So, we should unite ourselves as a community and we should not fight with each other knowing the fact that people want to spread hatred among us.
