Fatal attack on Onur Şener – “The Voice” star loses his life because he refused music request
On Sunday (October 2) Onur Şener was performing in the Çankaya district of the Turkish capital when the situation suddenly escalated: Some concertgoers are said to have asked the 45-year-old to sing a certain song. Because the former “The Voice” candidate did not know this, he denied the request. Other reports, however, point out that Şener refused to sing without playback.
This is said to have led to a fight in which the father of a young daughter was fatally injured. Accordingly, the perpetrator or perpetrators attacked the musician with a bottle that injured his neck so badly that he died just a few hours later in the hospital as a result of his injury, as reported by CNN Türk . Five suspects between the ages of 35 and 36 were then arrested.

As the Istanbul daily Milliyet writes, the group is said to have consisted of three men and two women. Two of them are already free again, after they were initially only banned from leaving the country. The rest, however, have not yet been persuaded to make a confession: Two of the concert-goers accuse their companion, the 35-year-old labor inspector İlker K. – but he denies any guilt.
Now it’s up to the police to investigate Onur Şener’s death. His violent death has already caused great horror in Turkey: on social media, a number of people were shocked by the act of violence, and prominent voices also criticized it. At times, the attack in Turkey was the most discussed topic on Twitter, as several media reported. The death of a young musician also recently caused a stir in this country: just a few days before the album was released, the keyboarder of the band Wanda died unexpectedly at the age of only 32.
