What Will Happen to Namewee creator of Negarakuku?

Posted: August 24, 2007 in Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Speech, human rights, Personal ramblings, Society

According to Technorati, of late there has been around 184 blog postings about Namewee if you search the terms “Negarakuku video by Namewee”. I belief the number continues to grow as more and more people are becoming aware of this issue. Due to the massive exposure the smarty pants as I mentioned in my earlier post has given to Namewee’s Negarakuku, even the non-cyber citizens have become aware of this issue, those who bother to dig further most often than not have stumbled upon the actual video or related information concerning the video while the rest take the media’s word as the truth. But how has this controversy affected Malaysia? How has this affected the way I, you, we, us look at each other as Malaysians? Has it made us look at each other differently as claimed by Malay Women Blog? Has it made us more conscious towards what is truly occuring in our country despite our 50 years independence? Do it makes us realize that there is nothing much we can do about or does it makes you yearn to do more? Does it worry us that we could have just as well been in Namewee shoes? Does this controversy prove how un-multi-racial we can be? Has this controversy shown us how suppressed we are? How has this opened or closed our eyes?

Last but not least, how will this affect Namewee a student on his way to completing his degree in the field of communications? Will this affect his ability to complete his studies? Will this affect his job opportunities in the future? Will he be discriminated by those who were offended by his video?Will he end up in jail?

Will we even be aware of what happen to Namewee long after the controversy becomes old news and new news stories appear once again to get our attention? Will Namewee be remembered as the boy who created all that fuss and ended up in hot soup or as the boy that changed the way Malaysian looked at each other….made a difference…………..what will happen to Namewee? I do not know, but I hope that we will never forget the impact of this controversy ….to Malaysia and her people.
