monkey and cock

The MTV created by namewee has created a stir in the mainstream media. Harian Metro used the word 'biadab' to describe namewee without giving any translations in the papers, those who can't understand mandarin will definitely be carried away by the one sided report. This will only create tension among Malaysians. I will put up a malay translation of the lyrics soon. Besides that Syed Hamid today also commented in NST

"No matter how modern you are — you don’t make fun of your national anthem."

As for me this is only a way of expression. It is purely artistic and musical - and should not be taken as making fun of the national anthem. Besides that the most sensitive sentence i feel in the lyrics would be

'ada suara yang macam ayam'

If you still remember last year in parliament the PPP president, Kayveas uses the word 'macam monyet' to address the opposition but refused to apologize. According to him

'Saya tak cakap dia monyet, saya cakap dia macam monyet'



If this is the case, I plead nameweee not guilty.
