Female rapper releases song ‘Mera Jism Meri Marzi’ to clarify its meaning. Female rapper FiFi, recently wrote a song called Mera Jism Meri Marzi, and you might want to turn up your speakers for this one.
The song comes after a series of backlash the slogan received following the previous Aurat March, and takes a dig at the people manipulating its meaning.
The rapper went on to highlight the narratives attached with the slogans in the verge of clarifying what it really means, without using any inciting comments or gender slurs.
The song makes references to equal rights, wage gaps, acid attacks, forced marriages, under-aged marriages, harassment, honour killings and even addresses Qandeel Baloch and the Aurat March.
Killings on the rise, still the starts are scary. Shaadi mubarak, but too young to marry, shaadi mubarak but forced to marry. Mera Jism Meri Marzi say it loud and proud. Mera Jism Meri Marzi stand with my crowd.”
The rapper also penned a note describing the song and what inspired her into making it.
“Since the Aurat March that happened a few days back I was so inspired, one night I stayed up writing a song.. the next day I recorded it and a few days later, this is what I am presenting to you guys.”
“I believe the Aurat March is something that is necessary in Pakistan, it is not uncommon for Woman to come together on International Women’s Day and bring the real issues that woman in Pakistan deal with, to the table. This is my stance on it. I support any cause that in return empowers a woman, I know especially being from a South Asian/ Middle Eastern family, fighting the patriarchy may be exhausting, but at the same time… also the most worth while.”
