The Leading Bosnian-German DJ was on fire lately and his videos were being immensely shared all over our timelines; dramatically increasing his popularity internationally.

However, the Three-Time Award-Winning Artist faced an intense reaction from Muslims in the entire world after using a track which contained a vocal sample of the Islamic call to prayer. The incident happened during his performance over the weekend at Kappa Futur Festival in Turin, Italy.
