August 2020Edit

Chandan Shetty stoked a controversy by presenting his version of the folk song 'Kolumande Jangamadeva'. A section from the Old Mysuru region has objected to this song claiming that Shetty distorted the very history of Malemadeshwara Swamy, to whom the song is dedicated, thus hurting their religious sentiments. Several people have also objected to the way the song has been depicted. They said that Sharane Sankamma has been insulted in this song and, thus, the entire Sharana tradition has also been insulted by the rap singer. [1] Following the outrage, Anand Audio Company had deleted the song from YouTube.[7]

October 2019Edit

During Dasara celebrations of 2019, he proposed to reality TV star Niveditha Gowda on the Yuva Dasara stage, which is meant for cultural events. Chandan was performing at the government-sponsored Dasara programme at the Maharaja’s College grounds. District in-charge minister V Somanna said, "I have told the police to issue a show-cause notice. We will consider action as per the law. It is wrong to misuse the platform."[8][9]
