Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala joined the Congress party in Chandigarh on Friday, in presence of chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi and state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Moose Wala was booked by the Punjab police last year under the Arms Act on charges of promoting violence and gun culture in one of his songs. Before that, he was booked in another case after photographs of him firing an AK-47 rifle at a firing range during the Covid-19 pandemic went viral on social media.
Moosewala, whose real name is Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, is known for his hit Punjabi tracks such as “Legend”, “Devil”, “Just listen”, “Tibeyan da putt”, “Jatt da muqabala”, “Brown Boys” and “Hathyar” among many others.
He first gained recognition with his still-popular “So high”, which was released in 2017. His name has also featured in the Billboard Canadian Albums in 2018.
