When I was about to launch my company, one of my best friends came to me and said that he has a friend who is a singer. I heard the song; it was ‘So High’. So, we decided to release our music company with that song and it turned out to be a hit,” he said.
“Later, I met him and there was an attachment with him. We had no song together so I thought of making a song together for a movie. I told him to meet next week and discuss, but he left for his heavenly abode,” Gippy added.
He said, “Sidhu was a huge artist. Drake used to follow him. I think Sidhu was the only person from India who was followed by Drake. He had a huge fanbase and a lot of people were connected with him.”
