He has some talent. But I still cannot accept the fact that he came up with a rap for our national anthem, “Negaraku”. This is the news that caused quite a stir for the Malaysian government. However, no matter how annoyed I get with the Malaysian government sometimes, I still think that disrespecting the national anthem is one of the lowest thing a citizen can do.
Not to mention, this has become widespread news among other countries. Is it really that great after all? What are we trying to prove to the world? That we are just a rude bunch of young Malaysians mocking our own country? In my humble opinion, I think he should get arrested in the first place for rapping “Negaraku” – disrupting the national anthem’s representation of our country. It is wrong. In Canada, you will be arrested for doing such a thing because you have no respect for your country as a citizen. What do you think if a citizen of another country starts rapping our national anthem? It is more of a disgrace having your own citizen do this sort of thing! And there are people supporting him as well?
As little patritiosm you want to have for your country, just keep it to yourself. It disturbs me as to how many people support Namewee for his “Negaraku” rap.
I don’t think it is cool. It is not profound. Nor is it intelligent. That’s why I never want to follow this Namewee news along, or support anything because I think it is just plain ridiculous. After a friend of mine showed me this video about his new album, I had to say something. I don’t know if that “Negaraku” rap he has is part of it, but I am adamant on my stand that I will not support him nor his CD.
If people want to make a difference for Malaysia, do it the right way. Show that you care by wanting to right the wrongs in Malaysia. Not by making a shit-ass joke out of our national anthem.
