Nigerian Rapper Tion Wayne pays tribute to Sidhu Moose Wala with release of 'Healing'; watch video
Rapper Tion Wayne, a Nigerian-British, went to Sidhu Moosewala's hometown in Mansa a few days back to film scenes for his music video 'Healing' at the Moosa the village where the deceased Punjabi musician once lived. On May 5, the song has been released as a tribute to Sidhu Moose Wala.
The song in no time created a huge buzz with its connection to Sidhu Moose Wala, his success, and his brutal death. The rapper made sure to cover all the aspects in the song and also Sidhu Moose Wala's father Balkaur Singh Sidhu featured in the same. The song also showcased Tion Wayne taking a ride on Sidhu Moose Wala's tractor with his father around the village where Sidhu belonged to.
Wayne also paid a visit to the location in the Jawahar Ke village where Moosewala was shot and killed on May 29, 2022, as well as his memorial at the cremation site.
Over a thumping instrumental, the song has snappy flows and nasty lyrics, and it is backed by a music video that is equally as savage. The rapper from Edmonton cleverly combines his go-to green colour scheme in the video, which also has places from Nigeria that further deepen the song's historical context.
When Moosewala's single "Celebrity Killer" was released in 2021, Wayne worked with the Punjabi singer on it. He visited the village to meet Moosewala's parents, Balkaur Singh and Charan Kaur, in order to showcase the family's home and village in his video.
"Sidhu is no longer with us, but he wanted to use his movie to show the rest of the world Sidhu's village, home, and culture. Regarding the shooting of Wayne's song, Balkaur Singh said.
