How did MC Kevin die?
According to the latest reports, the musician, who is known for songs such as 'Dentro do Carro' and 'Foda-Se a Ex', fell from the balcony of the 11th floor of the hotel. After suffering serious injuries, he was taken to the Miguel Couto hospital, in Gávea, where he was pronounced dead.
As per a report published in local news outlet Real 92.3, a statement from the authorities read, "Unfortunately, patient Kevin Bueno did not resist and died." The police are investigating his death. The news of his death is made even more tragic by the fact that he had married his criminal lawyer girlfriend, Deolane Bezerra, in Mexico just two weeks ago.
She was reportedly present at his final concert on Saturday, May 15, 2021. Bezerra confirmed the news of her husband's death on Instagram.
"You are and always will be the love of my life," she said (in Portuguese, translated to English) on her Instagram story. "The most beautiful love I have ever had, the man who loved and admired me the most. Go with God, my boy! I will always love you."
Bezerra also shared a photo of them together along with a long caption paying tribute to her late husband. "And on that day you spoke in my ear 'Life is now until death separates us,'" she wrote (translated from Portuguese). "I woke up, don't leave me, wait 33 years to be happy and you abandon me? It is not fair you will leave like this! It is not! It is not! My love."
Professionally known as MC Kevin, the popular singer from Sao Paulo had amassed more than 10 million followers on Instagram. His views on YouTube are in the millions with a further 1.8 million registered monthly listeners on Spotify.
He was known for his signature 'funk paulista' genre of music, which was created in Sao Paulo in 2008. It reportedly often included lyrics about cars, motorbikes, drinking and women.
The musician was previously the subject of a number of police charges. Earlier this year, he was charged with libel and incitement after swearing aggressively at the police and then posting the footage to social media. Last year, neighbors called the police on him for breaching Covid-19 restrictions after he filmed himself strolling outdoors after testing positive for the virus. He was reportedly arrested at a hotel in the city of Belo Horizonte for drug use in 2019.
