The Syrian artist, Hussein Al Deek, is facing accusations that the tune of his latest song “I am a Syrian and I am honored” was stolen from the tune of “Hatti Kifak Bikfi” by the Lebanese artist Reda.
Rida’s accusations of theft come after a wave of controversy sparked by the propaganda “Promo” for the song, which was broadcast throughout the days of the Syrian governmental and private media outlets, and a number of people appeared in it from different countries in the world, wearing white uniform shirts with the Syrian flag in the shape of a heart, and the phrase: I am Syrian I am honored.
Syrians’ reactions to the song have varied since the broadcast of the “Al Promo”, as some criticized those scenes, describing them as “a separation from reality,” especially with the accelerating deterioration of the living reality in Syria, which is not reflected by the bodies of the participants in the “promo”, while others praised the song.
The new accusation was made by the artist, Reda, on Lebanese artistic sites. The news site “Urgent News” reported that Reda said that act was “a shame” and asked: “Is it possible that a song dedicated to Syria from a stolen tune and a stolen composer?”
He explained that he had taken “a set of measures, the first of which is to stop the song on YouTube, and we will take the best way to restore the right.”
The “Syrian” channel broadcast the “Deek” song three days ago, after a great promotional campaign accompanied by mixed reactions from the Syrians, overwhelmed by criticism of the “show” method, especially that the artist and those who appear in the promo to express their pride, do not live in their country, Syria, which is experiencing a continuous war. 10 years ago, it drove its citizens into an unprecedented state of poverty.
After a wave of criticism that affected the way the song was promoted, its broadcast increased criticism, which one of them summarized when he wrote: “And the melody is stolen too!” Others, however, went to the institutions that supported the song to provide an explanation.
According to what is mentioned in the song badge, a number of government institutions provided support for the song, including the ministries of information, culture, the interior, and tourism, in addition to the Artists Syndicate and the Sons and Daughters of Martyrs’ Schools.
