Iranian music legend, Mohammadreza Shajarian has sadly passed away. Shajarian was reported to have died today October 8 2020. Mohammadreza Shajarian who has been battling with Kidney cancer for a long time died at Tehran’s Jam Hospital.

Mohammadreza Shajarian death news was announced by Homayoun Shajarian via his IG page. The post read, Shajarian “flew to meet his beloved (God)”.

In March 2016, Shajarian revealed to fans he had been receiving treatment for kidney cancer for some 15 years, both inside and outside of Iran. Highlighting his importance even then, Iran’s culture and health ministers announced they would follow his case.

Shajarian’s political stand surprised many in Iran, especially among the young who considered him a crooner of a past age. Though he once changed his name to avoid his conservative father’s opposition to his singing, Shajarian supported Iran’s movement against the American-backed shah. He resigned his position with Iranian state radio ahead of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution.
