Reacting to Mo's death Lane Side Reviews pen down a tribute to the star, describing him as a legendary Guru.
Read:- We are saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Legendary GURU (and our personal friend) Mo Pinel. Mo worked with us on quite a few things when we first started, and his #MOtionHole dazzled and delighted across our videos. He always had time to answer a question, shoot the breeze, or just hang out.
Mo was so much more than Cores and coaching. He was an incredible man, devilish charmer, friend, partner in crime, and Father. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family during such a difficult time.
