According to an article by Freemuse, Tunisian artist, Noamane Chaari, has received threats to his life, been fired from his job and suspended from his participation in the Tunisian Artists’ Union after publishing a music video where he collaborates with Israeli artist Ziv Yehezkel.
The music video, which can be seen below, offended Tunisian journalists, activists and others and some people called for him to be prosecuted. The music video has Arabic and English lyrics included and reading through the words it is clear that this song is nothing but peaceful.
