Most Disliked Merdeka Theme Song

Update 1: From FMT – Pakatan Rakyat today announced an alternative Merdeka Day theme to the ruling coalition’s controversial “Janji di Tepati” (Promises Fulfilled). “Sebangsa, Senegara, Sejiwa” or “One Race, One Country, One Soul” was picked after a committee of five sifted through 250 suggestions from the public in what could also be seen as an election campaign to highlight’s the opposition’s inclusive brand of governance. Speaking to reporters at the PKR headquarters here, former national laureate A Samad Said said the suggestion, contributed by Khaimi Adam, was picked as it best reflected the all-embracing spirit of the independence celebration.

This is indeed funny and it seems like the jokers (behind the theme song) deserve it too.

From FMT:-

YouTube users poured scorn on this year’s Merdeka theme song, drawing 20,502 “dislikes” compared to 297 “likes” from its 171,257 viewers as at 3pm today.

The video which was posted on July 27 and runs for 3:36 minutes is titled “Janji Ditepati” and the lyrics was penned by Information, Communication and Culture minister Rais Yatim.

The video shows various pictures of programmes under the 1Malaysia campaign, including Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M), Baucar Buku 1Malaysia and the Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M).

On Saturday, Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM) called for Pakatan Rakyat helmed states to boycott this year’s Merdeka celebration.

Its founder, Badrul Hisham Shaharin said that this year’s event was tainted by “extreme political bias” as the Janji Ditepati slogan was taken from Barisan Nasional’s campaign motto.

Based on my last count on the video, the number of dislikes have gone up from 20,502 dislikes to 22,579 dislikes and counting! Head over to Youtube and mark your sentiment on this year’s Merdeka theme song – what a start to the Merdeka month!
