In his performance, Diljit addressed how people are trying to pull down those who find fame, whether it is in the online world or the real one. He also requested unity in the Punjabi community. Singing about the moment when Sidhu Moose Wala's father took off his turban during his son's funeral, he said, “I have immense respect for you and your turban”.
Further, Diljit advised the Punjabi community to stick together as there are many who are trying to divide. In the end, he warned those who are targeting Punjabis and Moose Wala's memory and said, “Moose Wala's name is written on hearts, it will take a lot to wipe it off”.
During the concert, as soon as he mentioned Sidhu Moose Wala's name, the audience erupted into applause.
Fans online praised Diljit for showing his support to Moose Wala on the platform. One user wrote, “HISTORY! HISTORY! HISTORY! @diljitdosanjh created history at Rogers Arena last night. Really no one can do it like him. He's really BORN TO SHINE and he never leaves a single chance to win the hearts, Literally super proud of you DILJIT JI.”
