Taz was reportedly suffering from a hernia.
He was due to undergo surgery two years ago, but it was postponed in the wake of the coronavirus.
The tributes came after news of his death surfaced online.
The singer whose real name was Tarsem Singh Saini was previously known as Johnny Zee.
Taz rose to fame in 1989 with his album ‘Hit The Deck’.
