The director behind Aviciis documentary has paid a heartfelt tribute to the DJ and has called out the music industry for never understanding the star.
Levan Tsikurishvili followed the Swedish DJ for more than four years for his Aviciis True Stories project, and got to see a side of the star that not many people witnessed.
Taking to Instagram, he has now remembered his late friend and revealed how his loss feels like a horrific nightmare.
Addressing Avicii himself, Levan wrote: Writing this to you feels unreal; like a never-ending nightmare or a terrible joke. You were, and always will be the most intelligent and loyal person Ive ever got to know in this superficial industry.
An industry that was not smart enough for you and that never really understood who you were.
He then went on to call Avicii genuine and humble, and told his followers that he will stay loyal to the star and his spirit.
He wrote: Im so thankful for everything we went through together, everything you did for me, everything you taught me by your actions, every single work we did together, all the WEEK-long creative conversations we used to have and fights that always used to end up in something great, epic nights, endless laughs, the documentary we did that didnt left a single person emotionally untouched.
ALL the night long music sessions I was fortunate to film, your best friends that meant the whole world to you, who also quickly became my close friends, silly jokes, popcorn evenings and all the places we went to together.
Before adding: You introduced me to a world that did not exist for me before our paths crossed again and I have you to thank for many things I still do today.
I will always stay loyal to you and your spirit, nothing has changed in our loyalty, and I will forever carry you deep down in my heart until the day I die and hopefully meet you again in a better place, where you are right now. Thank you “Brysh” Tim for everything! I Love you and miss you so much.
Fans were quick to respond to his tribute, and shared their love for both Avicii and the documentary.
One wrote: Big big love for @avicii the 10 more days song should be the new James Bond song. Excellent documentary! What a genius he was!!
Another added: I am so thankful for the movie. You did a great job with it. Tim seemed to be a wonderful soul and a golden hearted man. Still cant believe his death.
Someone else commented: Your movie was amazing and so so so important. Thank you for giving Tim the chance to tell the true story before he got peace. I am heartbroken. Have no words.
