Brazilian Funk artist MC Daleste had no clue yesterday would be his last performance. The young Brazil funk artist was shot dead, killed during his live show. One bullet ripped through the singer’s chest, leaving the popular 20-year-old dead.
The show was late Saturday, July 6th in the Campinas area of Brazil’s São Paulo. Video of the club shooting has surfaced and blasted viral across YouTube. Hundreds of re-uploads have been completed.
The singer was taken to the hospital immediately after the shooting. Unfortunately, doctors were not able to repair the damage done by the shooter.
Information about the gunman has not yet been given to the public according to Ultimo Segundo. The singer was in the San Martin neighborhood’s CDHU building. Everything seemed normal to party goers, excited to dance to MC Dalete’s funk music.
The Brazilian singer will be buried at Vila Formos cemetary in São Paulo on Monday, July 8th. As family, friends, and fans are still in shock, they have not been able to do more than issue a statement on the Funk artist’s facebook fan page.
The facebook message to fans of MC Daleste, in English:
Another Warrior, another MC of the Funk [Brazil music genre] spiritually leaves us unexpectantly. He left the stage without saying goodbye, a victim of intolerance! A great loss to our family of Funk!
I hope God gives strength to the family, friends, and fans of my good friend MC Daleste, a guy who only wanted to convey joy to everyone through his music.
It is a pity that the peace which we dream of, we often only get when we close our eyes. However, while my eyes are open, I will fight … I will persist. Our goal has always been and will always be that. Take all a positive message: fight for every dream … To realize it!
Mc Daleste did his part and will always be remembered. It is in peace Warrior of the funk! #OFUNKPEDEPAZ
