Slain Punjabi singer and rapper Sidhu Moosewala had a huge fan following not only in India but across the world. Ever since his demise, fans from all over the world have paid tribute to him in their own way.
A video posted on Twitter by Indian Police Service officer HGS Dhaliwal shows how the singer was popular even across the border. The clip seems to have been recorded at a border outpost by the Indian Army personnel. The soldiers are seen dancing to the late singer’s song “Bambiha Bole” that is apparently being played on loudspeakers by the Pakistani soldiers. “Sidhu’s songs playing across the border! bridging the divide!” Dhaliwal wrote in the tweet alongside the video.

“This is so overwhelming and emotional.. people across border too felt the pain of his loss. May he be in peace now,” read another tweet. “Religion divides us, while music unites us,” posted yet another.
The song “Bambiha Bole” featured Sidhu Moosewala with Amrit Maan. The song was released in 2020 and it has accumulated 207 million views on YouTube. Moosewala was shot dead on May 29 at Jawaharke village in Mansa district.
