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!

awsome song.. way too gooo ali gul pir
i like it nice song
@Sidra: why u showing so pride....
Love the way he so impeccably raps a witty feudal caricature. Can't help but beam at the arrangement such talented Pakistanis are able to pull off.
Absolutely loved it! :D
What an effort to highlight the core wadera culture from this guy. In fact there is a need to kick out all the waderas, malaks, sardars, jagirdars, etc along with their betas n their sick culture from Pakistan. Just to give him a idea for next comic if he can make KARACHI KAY GHUNDAS...
Viva Pak n Viva Paki...
@wadera: if wadera likes, I like too!
Sweater "Aruman"i! Hahaha,,great song.
Waderai likes this. :)
@Sajjad: Enjoy for the time being. The time will come when All Wadiaras, Jageedars and So called Sains will be wiped out by the Poor people. At present enjoy rapping.
The lyrics, music and performance all are quite lame. The performer looks like he is related to Laloo Yadav rather than a Jatoi chief, they should have cast a more believable feudal in terms of appearance and demeanor
I'm a Sindhi and so called 'feudal' from a land-owning family! Not everybody behaves like this but it is highly accurate for those who do! Very funny and quite exactly how some of us Sindhi's roll :P ( all in good faith)
BRILLIANT. I am SO proud.
hahahhaa nice song.. loved it :)
