A guitar statue “Rupali Guitar” made to honour the memory of the legendary rock singer Late Ayub Bachchu at Chittagong city’s Prabartak intersection will be inaugurated on Wednesday.

Chittagong City Corporation (CCC) Mayor AJM Nasir Uddin will formally inaugurate the statue along with a fountain at the intersection.

The guitar statue was wrapped in black cover, and after the statue was uncovered on Monday, passersby began to gather around the fountain. Some were seen taking selfies with the monument.

CCC Chief City Planner AKM Rezaul Karim, while speaking to Dhaka Tribune, said: “The statue has been modeled after the Rupali Guitar of Ayub Bachchu.” 

“The guitar statue has been made from stainless steel and is 18 feet tall. The base on which it has been placed is 4.5 feet high.”

“A fountain has also been built around the statue. 16 different lights will reflect on the fountain in the evening while the guitar will sparkle in the sunlight. The statue has been dedicated to the memory of the legendary singer,” Rezaul added.

Bachchu, also the  frontman of rock band LRB, died in Dhaka on October 18 last year, at the age of 60. The legendary singer and guitarist was buried at the Chaitanya lane graveyard in Chittagong.

He was a revolutionary rock singer of the country, and he impressed his listeners with modern, classic, and folk songs.
