TORONTO, Canada—Rapper Humble The Poet sparked controversy as he made disrespectful remarks about the 10th Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji a while back. His post was later deleted, however a screenshot was recovered by the Sikh Network which shows the Rapper’s derogatory remark.
The screenshot was shared with Sikh24 by the Sikh Network.
Toronto-based Kanwar Singh – a.k.a. Humble the Poet is known for his socially- and politically-inspired Punjabi hip-hop.
Editor’s note: It is understood Kanwar has deleted his post. However, in light of his growing popularity, it is hoped that he represents the Sikh identity in a positive light. Outlandish, or wayward behaviour / statements ought to be weighed up against the norms of Sikhi before being launched into. A responsibile respresentation is important on this exposure level.
