After losing the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar in February this year, the music fraternity lost two more gems back to back. Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala's death on 29 May 2022 and KK's untimely demise two days after sent shockwaves all across the nation. Post the two iconic stars' tragic death, several fans and celebrities paid tribute to the late singers.

Joining the list is singer Mika Singh, who recently ringed into his 47th birthday on 10 June. However, the renowned singer did not organise any party on his birthday, nor did he celebrate the special day. Mika abstained from celebrating his birthday out of respect for the late singers Sidhu Moose Wala and KK.

Mika Singh did not celebrate his birthday

In a recent chat with Pinkvilla, Mika Singh opened up about not celebrating his birthday this year. As per the singer, this small gesture is his way of paying an homage to Sidhu Moosewala and KK. Mourning the loss of the two singers, Mika stated-

"Jab bhi family mein death hoti hai toh aap avoid karte ho, main bhi avoid kar raha hun. Is zariye main chaahta hun ki yeh bhi ek tribute ho meri taraf se ki mujhe vaakai mein bahut dukh hua toh is cheez ko lekar hum khushi na manaayein. (Whenever somebody from the family dies, you avoid celebration, and I am doing the same. This is my way of paying a tribute to Sidhu and KK. I am genuinely upset with their deaths)."
