Dharmesh Parmar aka MC TodFod, the rapper who died on Sunday at the age of 24, had two heart attacks in the last four months, his mother revealed in an interview.
In the interview with Dainik Bhaskar, his mother said that Parmar had his first heart attack four months ago when he was in Ladakh with his friends. However, it was only after his second heart attack that the family got to know about his condition. “He underwent heart surgery as well, but he never used to rest. He was crazy about rap and loved music more than his own life. My child is now gone, and I could not do anything to save him,” she said.
Talking about his last days with the family, she mentioned that the rapper celebrated Raksha Bandhan a day before Holi, when he left for his work trip to Nashik. “Perhaps he knew he was not going to return home. He has two younger sisters. I do not know what came to his mind, but he celebrated Rakhi, not just with his sisters, but also his aunt’s daughters,” she said.
TodFod was a part of Mumbai’s hip-hop group Swadeshi. Post his death, the group took to Instagram and wrote, “Our Brother Dharmesh Parmar aka MC TodFod passed away on 20th of March in the afternoon. He died due to a heart attack while playing hacky sack. Post mortem reports have stated that he died because of high blood pressure that caused the attack. In these difficult times, we request everyone to respect his family and friends’ privacy. Keep him in your prayers.”
TodFod’s last performance was with his band on Saturday in Sandhan valley as a part of an art and music festival.
