Sure we have heard all the talks on feudalism, seen all those prime time dramas and read those books too. But have you ever seen the son of a feudal lord break it down on what his life is like?
Meet Akbar Jatoi Jalbani (standup comedian Ali Gul Pir). He raps about his life in “Waderai Ka Beta”, a video that went viral on social networking websites.
The video features the comedian playing the role of a feudal lord’s son, sashayed by an entourage of guards and rolling in his metallic-orange Hummer.
The Urdu-rap song begins with describing the life of a feudal in Pakistan. The rapping saeen is seen cruising around in Karachi and twirling his embellished waistband while he repeatedly thrusts his chest.
The lyrics are timed perfectly and some parts of it are actually hilarious, like:
“Main tujhe banaoon ga Dadu ki rani, Versas kay joote, sweater Armani” (I will make you the Queen of Dadu, will adorn you with shoes from Versace and sweaters from Armani).
“Baal set aur unmein sarson ka tayl, mere saamne tum sabki moochein hain fail” (With hair set with mustard oil, everyone else’s moustache fails in front of me).
Video rating: Two thumbs up!
