His sudden death left everyone speechless and even the news came out regarding his death with the detailed videos in which he can be seen sweating madly with no AC in an auditorium.
KK’s sudden death shocked everyone
KK was one of the iconic and versatile singers in the Bollywood industry. He has given some outstanding tracks that last forever without any doubt. On Tuesday he performed a concert organized by Gurudas College at Nazrul Mancha in south Kolkata.
Within hours he was “feeling heavy”, he even asked the authorities to fix the AC as it wasn’t working as well. He quickly wrapped up the concert and rushed to the hotel. Soon after they reached the collapse and his team had taken him to the hospital.
The auditorium was overcrowded and there was no space in there he could have gotten proper air. KK was looking great in shape till the last performance and even some had pointed out that AC is not working. One of his fans blamed the authority of the college, “AC wasn’t working at Nazrul Mancha.
He performed there and complained abt it bcoz he was sweating so badly..it wasn’t an open auditorium. watch it closely u can see the way he was sweating, closed auditorium, overcrowded, Legend had to go due to authority’s negligence. Not KK,” a fan tweeted.
But right now, blame won’t work at all because the man is gone and left the music industry in a big stroke.
It’s shocking because two days back Punjabi rapper Sidhu Mosewala was murdered in broad daylight, people were coming out of that phase, and then this.
