Saken Bitaev, one of Kazakhstan’s most respected musicians and directors, was killed during the Almaty riots.

His friend Daniyar Adilbekov announced this on a social network, writes the Russian press.

According to Adilbekov, the tragedy took place on January 6. It is said that the artist was with a friend, and they were trying to get rid of the protesters who wanted to take their car. A friend of Bitaev’s said that the crowd surrounded the car and tried to open the doors, then started firing, Deschide.md reports.

“A bullet pierced Saken’s lung,” Adilbekov wrote, noting that Bitaev had died instantly.

He added that Bitaev’s relatives still could not remove the body from the morgue, as there were not enough police in the city to draw up a protocol on the musician’s death. Alibekov called Bitaev “one of the most talented directors” and “the father of Kazakh hip-hop.”

“Now you’re next to the legends – 2pac and Biggie, old Bob Marley,” he added. “Everything you wanted.”
