Ntaha el Kteb: A state of song!
Guest G : Ironically, a new ironic song from Ramy Maalouf about Lebanese domestic workers issue in Lebanon…or should we use “slaves”?!
The song is tough and I first hesitated to write because the song’s lyrics are a bit controversial. But then again, welcome to Lebanon!
Will a soft, touching song do the work? I really don’t think so…
We’ve learned in advertising that in order to reach your audience, you have to speak its language…And so did Ramy Maalouf.
If you only read the press clipping scrolling in the background, you would understand the writer’s attitude perfectly!
“Domestic workers are dying at a rate of more than one person per week” … way of death: SUICIDE…cause of death: drastic life situation. Isn’t this outrageous enough to make you curse?!
To my opinion, the lyrics, the music and the singer’s (Georges Nehme) voice have made out a song with a cause in which all of us should be engaged.
The use of social media to spread the song was clever too, targeting the youth generation who were born with a silver spoon in their mouth.
Fils de papa et maman, it is time to get up and do your own business! Stop abusing laziness!
Why do you always need assistance? To clean, to eat, to carry your things, to park…to even rule a country!
Because the moment you start doing your business on your own, you will be able to appreciate people around you and the effort they’re putting to serve you.
I may have gone far with subject…so to end it up check the clip above…you might have other points of view!
