Popular Punjabi singer Garry Sandhu has announced his intention to quite the music industry after having delivered some of bhangra’s biggest hits. In an emotional status update on his Facebook page, Garry expressed his desire to quit professional singing and return to a normal life, much to the surprise of his 106,000 fans.
Garry, one of Punjabi music’s fastest growing stars, boasts an impressive climb to fame in 2010 that earned him double honours at the 2011 Brit Asian Music Awards. Garry won both categories that he was nominated in – Best Newcomer, and Best Male Act.
The popular singer has been mired in controversy, having been deported from Britain last year following allegations of settling in the country illegally. Soon after, he released the hit song Brick with beat maker GV. The song featured on number 58 in the UK mainstream charts.
One fan on Facebook, expressing shock, said: “YOU CANT STOP SINGIN NOW! NOT AFTER EVERYTHING!!!”
Another heartbroken fan wrote: “Plz dont Quit…. we all luv your songs…♥ “
On his Facebook status, Garry asks his fans to believe in themselves and chase their dreams. He reminds them that you only live once and to take full advantage of the life they have.
Garry still has a few projects lined up that include a duet with H Dhami, in association with the internationally famous DJ Dips. Garry is also signed on for two songs on Dipps Bhamrah’s upcoming album.
Garry Sandhu claims a new single alongside Sudesh Kumari will be his final song.
