Singer KK died after performing for an hour at Kolkata’s Nazrul Mancha on Tuesday. After the cause of his death appeared to be a heart attack, netizens blamed the concert authorities for ignoring the singer’s request for AC and laser lights focusing him.
Singer KK’s fans blame concert authorities
Singer KK’s fans have been sharing a video from his last concert in Kolkata on Tuesday. A few videos also show him sweating considerably on stage, wiping his face with a towel, and also complaining about the air conditioning at the venue.
KK sang at a concert organized by Gurudas College at Nazrul Mancha in south Kolkata for almost an hour in the evening. He was “feeling heavy” after reaching his hotel, and soon collapsed, officials said. He was taken to a nearby private hospital where doctors declared him brought dead, the report said. While the singer’s body has been sent for postmortem, doctors suggest that a heart attack could be the likely cause behind his death.

AC not working
While KK looked ‘well’ during his last performance, many fans blamed the concert authorities for not ensuring proper air conditioning at the venue. “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” wrote a fan and added a video with his tweet.

Legend had to go due to authority's negligence.

Another fan said, “A completely mismanaged event, where the legendary singer continuously asked for the ACs to be put on and dim the laser lights behind him. This is how you manage an event #Bengal ?? #TMC should be held answerable for this loss #KK #KKPassesAway”

The AC was not working, KK was sweating profusely, then when he had chest pain, this is how he was taken out. No paramedics for such a big concert, no stretcher. They made him walk during a cardiac arrest. pic.twitter.com/zcqXi1el2i

AC not working due to Electricity issues, no ambulance available.
Kolkata is a joke not a Metro city anymore. https://t.co/5v32eJkO4u

A journalist from #Kolkata sent me this video of #KKLIVE . The AC was not working at the venue Nazrul Mancha & obviously it was extremely hot. Also wondering why was their no trained Para-medics for any medical emergency? #RIPKK #KKsinger pic.twitter.com/hkxpGupRsg

Got the pass
Saw some glimpse. And went out as I was not feeling well. The seating capacity was 2,500 and the people were 7000.
Temperature was Almost 40° outside and no ac working in Nazrul Manch. #KK #RIPKK #KKLIVE pic.twitter.com/YXGuueZqUk

Why are they rushing and taking him like that .
There should have been a doctor on call at such an event where the audience is in thousands .
Moreover the hall was overcrowded with AC not working
This is NEGLIGENCE!
