It was not just a power-packed musical evening with bhangra performance from ‘Apache Indian', Punjab singer Sidhu Moosewala’s song ‘295’ was also included in the closing ceremony of Commonwealth Games at Alexander Stadium in Birmingham.

A video of the stadium with Moosewala’s song was posted by Birmingham MP Preet Kaur Gill on Twitter.

The video was well received with many commenting, “Nice to see a tribute to sidhu moosewala”, “295 song ...good achievement of sidhu moosewala ...don't forget”

More than 4,500 athletes competed from 72 countries over the past 11 days at the games.

India finished with 61 medals, five less than their tally four years ago at Gold Coast.

Indian-origin Steven Kapur, a singer-songwriter and a reggae DJ, popularly known as 'Apache Indian' also performed, belting out chartbusters 'Boom Shack-A-Lak', ‘Pass the Dutchie' and ‘Red Red Wine' to celebrate sound system culture of the city.
