Rapper shot dead on stage in front of 3,000 fans in Brazil

This is the shocking moment a rapper was shot dead while performing on stage.

Mobile phone footage shows MC Daleste suddenly collapsing after he takes a bullet in the abdomen.

The video shows the rapper — real name Daniel Pellegrine -— suddenly recoil then slump to the ground. Fans scream as friends rush to help.

The 20-year-old Brazilian star died in hospital shortly after he was shot during a free gig for 3,000 fans in Campinas, 50 miles north of Sao Paulo, on Saturday.

More than 100,000 people have paid tribute on a memorial page.

The victim’s dad Roland Pellegrine said: “He had no enemies. It was envy. Jealousy kills.”

New York-based DJ Béco, who is from Sao Paulo, said: “This is one more sad event in a long history of urban violence in Brazil.

“Music should be the peaceful medium that connects us all for good times and for change.”
