When politic trying to tackle public using entertainment channel, this things will happen…read news below.
KENINGAU: Sabah Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Council of Elders (Penatua) urged the Kadazandusun Cultural Association (KDCA) and other KDM cultural associations to act on the tendency lately to produce songs containing lyrics that are lowering the community's image.
Its deputy chairperson, Robert Linggi, said young song composers nowadays are using love-laced lyrics that could cause "outsiders to think cheaply of the KDMs." He cited the songs Mansau Ansau Aku (Looking for a partner), Mantau Sementara (Temporary in-law) and the Murut song Tinaluan Lair Ulu Nagauk Ra Sarandaman (Groggy after overnight drinking).
"We do not want a negative perception," he said, adding that these songs are also a bad influence on the community's youngsters. He said PKR is willing to work with the KDCA and other KDM-based associations to put right the situation. Surely, we don't want others to think that the KDM community only likes to have fun and indulge in drinking. There are songs in the market whose lyrics are heavy on love and sex."
He believed the KDM community is not short of good and professional singers and it would be better if the composers focus on goodness and educational values.
Linggi said he proposed this to the KDCA because its Huguan Siou, Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan is now in the Government.
"Because of his position, he could propose this for the sake of the KDM future and image," he said. He said that should the PKR form the government, the proposal would be implemented, adding he has raised the issue with several KDM leaders in Barisan Nasional (BN).
Politic is good for us but at the same time we have to really careful , if not politic will control us and if this happen, we are in deep trouble…. The only solution is we have to control politic. Yes I admit most sabah songs will talking about love but this issue very conventional. Almost 70% of songs around the globe talking about love so WHAT?
I don’t think Sabahan songs heavy loaded with sex lyric, I want the Sabah Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Council to list down the songs so we can do calculations to know the percentage. … try la…
Yes … sabah well known with his attitude of drinking but do you know this “drinking attitude” is one of our stronger element for sabahan live in harmony.We can make friends during “drinking time” and this will help us to have more understanding with each other. I believe most of us already matured and our top leader also will “drinking” including the Sabah Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Council. Back to our main topic, most of the drinking song have a moral value to educate people not to get drunk such as fikir-fir dulu and hey aramai ti from Francis landong . One again… I need the song list….
