After releasing a public note to explain people about his stance, Shan Vincent De Paul came up with a rap song to express his emotions about the issue that took place due to the cover picture of “Rolling Stone”. The song consisted lyrics such as he never met “Arivu” before and termed director Pa. Ranjith who spoke about the erasure of Arivu as “Snakey”. He also accused Ranjith of forcing Santhosh Narayanan not to feature him in a project and said that he tries to “divide” him with others. The video he uploaded in Twitter caused so many reactions from people who believed that it was never about him but about the reluctance from leading platforms to recognize Arivu.

Along with Pa. Ranjith, several other celebrities including C.S Amudhan, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Chinmayi, Parvathy raised voice for the young and emerging rapper, after the release of the magazine which lacked his image. August 2021 cover of Rolling Stone Magazine which promotes the Independent music videos “Enjoy Enjaami” and “Neeye Oli” grabbed headlines after the authorities of the magazine decided not to use the picture of Arivu, the lyricist who wrote lyrics for both the songs. Along with director Pa. Ranjith, many people who became aware of the magazine’s cover has been calling out “Rolling Stone” through their tweets and reactions.

Along with singer Dhee, the magazine cover included Shan Vincent De Paul, a Canadian recording artist who worked in “Neeye Oli”. On seeing the cover, influential filmmaker Pa. Ranjith came up with a tweet condemning “Rolling Stone” and “Maajja”, an A.R Rahman backed music platform for failing to credit Arivu, a performer, lyricist, singer and rapper who worked in both the projects. It has been reported that “Rolling Stone” has interviewed Dhee and Shan before featuring them in their August cover.

Calling out the magazine, Pa. Ranjith, in his tweet wrote “Arivu, the lyricist of #Neeyaoli and singer as well as lyricist of #enjoyenjami has once again been invisiblised. @RollingStoneIN and @joinmaajja is it so difficult to understand that the lyrics of both songs challenges this erasure of public acknowledgement?” to express his displeasure over the cover image.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Shan who termed Pa. Ranjith’s tweet about the erasure of Arivu in the cover picture of “Rolling Stone” magazine as sh*t, said that the filmmaker know absolutely nothing about what he discussed through his tweet. The post gained the artist so much hatred as a result of which he deleted the post. After releasing a detailed clarification, he came up with a rap song and expressed his emotions through it.

Shan, through his song said that he proudly said to his daughter about himself getting featured in the cover of “Rolling Stone” and they were cherishing the moment when a message from a friend advising him to stay off twitter surfaced on his phone. He said that had no issues with anybody and also made sure that he never met Arivu. “They been trying to wipe us, Eelam Thamils out for some decades, you think some photoshop supposed to phase me ?” he asked through his song.

He further termed director Pa. Ranjith as “Little Snakey Director” and said that he tries to divide him from others. He accused him of forcing Santhosh Narayanan not to hire him and says that the “Kaala” maker couldn’t tolerate seeing his name in the credits. Check out his rap song below :
