In recent days, those still watching television might have noticed that the Merdeka dittie ‘Janji Ditepati‘ has been increasingly scarce. What has happened to this song, wonders our correspondent.

This is the (in)famous ‘Janji detepati‘ (Promises fulfilled) song specially composed for Merdeka Day:

It has received close to 425000 views! But hang on, as of 8.00pm, the clip has received 709 likes and an astonishing 37,954 dislikes on YouTube among those who expressed an opinion! In other words, 98 per cent of YouTube viewers who expressed an opinion disliked the song! Malaysia Boleh!

Some are claiming that the song isn’t even original and that it is based on an Indonesian gospel song, ‘Serukan Namanya’. Look at this clip comparing the two songs and you be the judge:

This is the gospel song in full:

The ‘Janji Ditepati’ lyrics even reek of propaganda:

Macam malam ikut siang
Macam bulan ikut matahari
1Malaysia terus berjuang
Janji Kita ditepati

Kata Kita dikota
Janji Kita ditepati
Hidup Rakyat Dibela
Masa Depan Diberkati
Janji sudah ditepati
Kini masa balas budi

Janji siapa? Janji kita
Janji apa? Janji 1Malaysia
Janji siapa? Janji kita
Janji apa? Janji 1Malaysia

Ini janji kita BR1M 1Malaysia
Ini janji 1Malaysia
TR1M 1Malaysia
Kata kita dikota
Kini 1Malaysia
Janji kita ditepati
Kedai 1Malaysia

Wishing all of you a Happy Merdeka – minus janji ditepati!
