2017 began with the most horrifying news, as one of the most beloved rappers of the music industry, Anil Adhikari aka Yama Buddha was found dead at his apartment in London on Saturday. Born in 1987 in Morang, he started off his career at the age of 12. His career took a U-turn when his song ‘Saathi’ gained an incredible response from music lovers.
Yama Buddha has made a significant contribution to bring Nepali rap where it is today. He should be credited for taking the Nepali rap music from streets to a professional level. Everyone from children and young people to even old people listen to rap nowadays. The credit for this, to a large extent, goes to talented rappers like Yama Buddha.
