SANTIAGO – A 29-year-old Chilean singer was killed during the night from Saturday to Sunday in Santiago’s Bellavista neighborhood. Reggaetonero Germán Langenegger tried to help a random person who had trouble with security guards of night club Discotheque. In the event, the artist was beaten and thrown to the ground, causing his death.
Chilean Reggaeton singer Germán Langenegger, known as Sayer Paradise and one half of duo Da Sweet, was killed this weekend. The incident occurred after the singer got involved in an argument between security guards and a young man, who the guards wanted to throw out of a club.
Langenegger was with his girlfriend waiting for a taxi when the situation unfolded. During the argument, he was beaten and thrown to the ground, resulting in a head injury that killed him. Although police was immediately present and called an ambulance, Langenegger bled to death before help arrived.
According to a friend of the victim, Langenegger only tried to help, but “they beat him and started kicking him and his girlfriend. She could react, but he didn’t react anymore.”
Family and friends asked witnesses to come forward and collaborate with the police. The investigations police collected evidence from the site of the attack and seized footage from the club’s security cameras.
The Chilean singer had been in the music business for about eight years. Da Sweet, the duo which Sayer formed with Natu’Ras (Sebastián Contreras), released Prohibido in July, featuring the famous Chilean singer Gloria Simonetti.
“With my heart broken, I inform you of the death of my beloved friend and partner in the song Prohibido, with the duo Da Sweet, Germán Langenegger in a confusing incident, in which courts will have to find the responsible. Full of life and hope, his future abruptly vanished,” Simonetti said on social media.
