In 2019, Wagid Hosain was diagnosed with cancer. He announced in February 2021 that his cancer was terminal, and died a month later in his hometown The Hague, the Netherlands, on 21 March 2021 at the age of 59. His Janazah was performed on 23 March 2021.

On 9 March 2021 Wagid Hosain was named to the Honorary Order of the Yellow Star (Knight class) by the president of Suriname. His wife Barsatie accepted the decoration on his behalf from the Surinamese ambassador to the Netherlands.


Wagid Hosain considered his time with the Indian Diamonds (1986-1995) as the peak of his career: they recorded many records and CDs which were popular throughout the Netherlands, Suriname, and the Dutch Caribbean. He took a hiatus from music in 1995. He returned to performing in 1999 as lead singer of Diamonds 2000 (successor to Indian Diamonds), then joined the Sound Tronics in 2002. He later became a solo artist. In 2012, he performed his last big show in Suriname at the Anthony Nesty Indoor Stadium. His last performance in the Netherlands was at the Theater Regentes in The Hague on 2 February 2020.


In 1986, Wagid Hosain released a CD single (designing the CD sleeve himself) with his most known Rafi cover, "Oh my love" (from the film Night in London). The B-side was "Ek bechara" (from the film Waris). Although he also released original songs (written and arranged by his uncle Hafizkhan), they were not as popular as his Bollywood covers.


In 1984, Mastana embarked on a seven-performance tour in Suriname organised by Surinamese impresario Dinesh Malhoe. All the concerts were sold out. Although Wagid Hosain felt the pre-tour practices were grueling, his singing was well-received by the audiences in Suriname. In 1986, Mastana toured Suriname again, this time accompanied by Saeed Rafi (one of Mohammed's sons). Saeed was particularly impressed by Wagid Hosain's performance of the Mohammed Rafi song "Mera To Jo Bhi Kadam Hai" (from the film Dosti).


In 1977, his uncle Hafizkhan formed a band called Mastana with six other musicians (four from the Wagid Hosain family) to perform at functions. Hafizkhan then recruited Wagid Hosain as drummer although Wagid Hosain had never played before. After a few lessons and intensive practice, Wagid Hosain caught up and began improvising his own drum patterns. Mastana performed instrumental covers of Bollywood songs, especially those sung by Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mahmood, and Kishore Kumar. They occasionally performed with singers. On some nights, when the band had finished their program, Wagid Hosain had his first opportunities to sing; he would choose famous songs of Rafi such as "Suhani Raat Dhal Chuki" (from the film Dulari), "Chaudhvin Ka Chand" (from the film of the same name) and "Mujhe Pyar Ki Zindagi Denewale" (from the film Pyaar Ka Saagar). These performances were popular with audiences; although his uncle and fellow bandmates also liked his singing, they stayed with their instrumental repertory.


Mohamed Shahied Wagid Hosain (9 January 1962 – 21 March 2021) was a Surinamese singer and musician. He was best known for covering Bollywood songs originated by Mohammed Rafi.
