Personal life[edit]

In July 2018, Jandu's first son was born and was named Aryan Singh Jandu.[4] Some of his songs have been criticised for glorifying guns and drugs.[5][6][7] He had disputes with his old co-artist Elly Mangat over releasing song "Aa Gaya Ni Ohi Billo Time" under Speed Records.[8] In June 2019, he was attacked along with Karan Aujla by a Punjab-based gang in Surrey.[9] A month before the attack, they received an extortion call from the same gang.[10]
