Last year 2019, The DJ canceled his shows due to “mental health issues.”
“I’ve not been online recently as I’ve been trying to work through my problems away from the glare of social media,” he wrote on Facebook. “Unfortunately I’ve not made as much progress as I’d hoped, so I’ve decided that I need to take a longer break from the scene.”
He added: “With a heavy heart, I have to tell you that I’ll not be performing at any of my forthcoming shows, including my appearances on the Circus 10 Years Tour. I will continue making and releasing music, beyond that I look forward to being back out to see you soon when I’m better.”
Fellow Djs pay their last respect to him on Twitter. “We are beyond devastated to hear of the passing of Cookie Monsta. May your soul rest easy and may our thoughts be with your family. Thank you for the countless times you graced our stage and for the memories we created.” Elektricity MI Tweeted.
