RENEGADE TRIBUNE — Tim Bergling, the Swedish DJ-producer known as Avicii, supposedly killed himself while vacationing in Oman on April 20. His family agrees with the official cause of death, or at least they will not publicly state any suspicions they might have. They released the following statement:
He really struggled with thoughts about meaning, life, happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.
Avicii had billions of views on Youtube, topped the charts with his singles, had massive tours around the world, and is one of the most influential musicians in recent history, but that all got cut short. First he dropped from the spotlight, ending his touring in 2016, then came his recent death at the young age of 28.
His family continues:
Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions… An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.”
Maybe he really just could not deal with the fame and stress of it all. I could completely understand that. However in 2015 he came out with a music video that has made a lot of people question why he turned his back on the music industry and whether or not the contents of the video had something to do with his death. In it, not only is child trafficking highlighted, but it shows how trafficking goes all the way to the top, ending with a big wig politician, possibly a head of state, getting lynched in front of an angry mob.
