Merdeka is just a day away and this time around it has a very different feel to it. That being said, Malaysians are more hopeful to see a change in the country for the betterment of its citizens. The significant date is also a reminder on the unity we all share as Malaysians living in this multicultural society.
Hence, we have a very special Merdeka treat for all Malaysians in conjunction with the 65th Malaysia Independence Day!
Whilst, we celebrate our independence day, let us also be reminded of the dissemination, prejudices and racism that we still very much face in the country and sadly, ingrained in society.
Bangun…aku mintak kau bangun ….
The lyrics were designed to amplify the voice of what WE (the MINORITY) are going through today, they have made profound statements calling for much-needed change and reforms in regards to racial discrimination, colourism, and the many layers of sensitivity that come with these matters.
Nak bincang itu perkauman, yang selalu diabaikan, SPM A+ sapu rata, Nak biasiswa tapi jadi mangsa Quota – Vishfro
This rap version & lyrics is fiyeehhh!
You guys have embarked on a bold endeavour by penning explicit lyrics about what the majority of Indians in the country have gone through and which many of us if we do voice it out, face serious repercussions.
The boys reiterate some hard-hitting point with their verses:
Toko-tokoh tempatan, Banyak amik kesempatan, Rakyat hidup sengsara, Bangsaku paling ketara – Vikar
India tak boleh lihat India berjaya, Musuh dalam selimut, berkeliaran mata, Ku naik tangga kejayaan jatuh ditimpa – Rajmahal
Porutha vanthe adaiyaalam, Oru maayamana vedhathanai inthe neeram vantha perachanai, oru mayakamana sothanani – Jiven

Since the rap song was uploaded on their respective social media, it has been making waves for its hard-hitting message about discrimination towards Malaysian Indians.
