Balwinder Safri, a Punjabi singer from the UK who had recently been released from the hospital, passed away on Tuesday. He was 63. With songs like O Chan Mere Makhna, Pao Bhangra, Gal Sun Kuriye, and Nachdinu, the late vocalist became well-known as a Bhangra sensation. Diljit Dosanjh, Guru Randhawa, Neeru Bajwa, and Gurdas Maan are just a few of the Punjabi artists who have expressed their condolences on the singer’s passing.
The musician reportedly underwent a heart procedure at the New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton, UK, in April 2022, according to ANI. He underwent three bypass surgeries, but afterward, brain damage caused him to fall into a coma. He apparently was released from the hospital after 86 days and was making progress toward rehabilitation when he passed away.
Singer Guru Randhawa said the following on Instagram: “Sir, we will always appreciate your songs and the contribution you made to Punjabi music. Peace be with you. Balwinder Safri, please say “alvida” (goodbye).”
Sharing a picture of Balwinder Safri on Instagram, Diljit Dosanjh wrote, “Waheguru (joined hands emojis) Balwinder Safri Ji.” Gurdas Mann also shared a picture of the late singer on his Instagram Stories and simply wrote, “Safri saab”.
