After Pa. Ranjith, C.S Amudhan and many other known personalities, top tier heroines such as Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Parvathy Thiruvothu came up with social media posts, raising voice for Arivu, a rapper, lyricist and a performer. The recent cover picture of the “Rolling Stone” magazine became a subject to controversy after it abandoned Arivu who wrote lyrics for both “Enjoy Enjaami” and “Neeye Oli”. Despite, the official twitter account of “Rolling Stone” added a tweet honouring Arivu after the outrage, people still expressing their displeasure over the cover picture.

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.

Arivu who rose to fame among Internet audience through his presence in “Enjoy Enjaami” and anti-caste lyrics, didn’t get featured in the magazine’s cover. He penned lyrics for “Enjoy Enjaami” and worked with Shan on writing the lyrics “Neeye Oli”. The entire cover story consisted a small quote of “Arivu” with no space for him in the cover image.

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.

Fixed it.” he wrote as his caption for his post and tagged the official Instagram handle of Rolling stone.
