Krishnakumar Kunnath, famously known as KK, was an artist whose magical vocals defined what love and friendship was, especially for the millennials. From experiencing first love to going through what a heartbreak feels like, his voice gave life to these emotions and experiences. He was an intrinsic part of everyone's playlist who grew up listening to Bollywood songs.
On Tuesday, May 31, 2022, a wave of grief and sadness paved its way across the world as the news of his demise came out. It was certainly a big blow to the music industry and his fans are still trying to process that the man who voiced their favourite songs was no more.
CitySpidey talked to KK's fans from Delhi NCR to know how they are feeling and processing the loss of one of the best artists to grace Bollywood music scene-
Shashi Bala, a resident of Nirala Aspire, GrenoWest says, "After listening the news, I couldn't sleep. I kept thinking how could this happen to someone whom everyone loved. Even though we didn't know him personally, he truly was with everyone of us with his songs."
Shweta Bharti, a social activist and General Secretary of NEFOWA, took it to twitter to say, “Do not get separated from anyone. Don't make someone cry. Don't feel nobility by insulting someone.

किसी से रूठकर ना बिछडें। किसी— Shweta Bharti (@Shwetabharti22) June 1, 2022
को रुलाकर ना सोएं।किसी को अपमानित करके बड़प्पन ना महसूस करें।किसी की स्थिति का फायदा उठाकर मूँछों पर ताव ना दें।क्या पता,जब तक हमें अपनी गलती पर अफसोस हो,वो इस संसार को अलविदा कह दे तो फिर हम किससे माफी मांगेंगे।जिंदगी वाकई बहुत छोटी है...बहुत छोटी?
Shelly Jain, a resident of ShakarPur, New Delhi says, “This is shocking. My heart is broken, a valuable part of my childhood is gone. Everything, from broken heart to first love and school memories, is attached to his songs. I still can't believe he is no more. May his soul rest in peace.”
Azeem Khan, a resident of Nirala Estate says, "This news disturbed me a lot and to pay tribute to him, I cycled non-stop for 100 km while his songs were playing on loop in my mind, his songs were running nonstop that gave me the strength to carry on."
Rakhi Sinha, a resident of Ward 2-A Sector 28, Noida says, “His song 'yaaro dosti badi haseen' will forever be one of my favourites. He has gone soon."
