Funkeiro MC Kevin died at the age of 23 on Sunday night (16), after suffering a serious accident. He fell from the balcony of the 11th floor of a hotel located in Barra da Tijuca, west of Rio, and had to be rushed to the Miguel Couto hospital, in Gávea.
The Municipal Health Secretariat of Rio confirmed Kevin’s entry into the hospital and reported that his state of health was very serious. A few minutes later, he brought the news that the funker had not resisted his injuries.
“Unfortunately, patient Kevin Bueno did not resist and died,” said the note, sent by the Secretariat to the UOL.
Angelo Canuto, Kevin’s friend, came to talk to the report and said that, along with the singer’s family, he would take a flight from São Paulo to Rio to better understand everything that happened.
Last night, MC Kevin performed at a nightclub in Rio. He was visiting the city with his wife, lawyer Deolane Bezerra. After confirming her husband’s death, she shared a message on Instagram Stories.
“You are and always will be the love of my life. The most beautiful love I have ever had, the man who loved and admired me the most. Go with God, my boy! I will always love you,” said Deolane.
Career marked by controversies
MC Kevin was followed by almost 9 million people on Instagram, apart from the 535 thousand subscribers on his YouTube channel. On the platform, the funkeiro already had 15 clips over 1 million views each, including the hits “Terapia” and “Piscina de Diamante”. On Spotify, the funkeiro had almost 2 million monthly listeners.
Despite all the success, his career was marked by several controversies. In February of this year, he had to give testimony after being accused of contempt by the Military Police of São Paulo. The MC would have mocked the police on Instagram after being told not to go through a street in the North Zone of the city of São Paulo.
In the same month, Kevin also started a fight with MC Livinho. The two funkeiros exchanged barbs on social media and Kevin accused Livinho of looking for him out of interest. “I will pay attention to the MC PH who won drugs with me, suffocated with me and saw that the favela won,” said Kevin, at the time.
Before they made the relationship official in April, Kevin and his wife, Deolane, also went through ups and downs. In December last year, videos of an alleged discussion of the two gained space on gossip profiles on Instagram.
In February, Kevin and Deolane came to put an end to the relationship, but he admitted that he missed the woman’s company. “It is sad to know that I lost the woman of my life. I was immature. Every human being makes mistakes in life, I think I live a very intense and very difficult life. We had the best moments of my life,” said the MC.
Upon resuming their romance, the two traveled to Dubai and, in April, were married in a ceremony held in Tulum, Mexico.
