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.

Condemning the gesture, Pa. Ranjith, in his tweet asked “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.

Director C.S Amudhan of “Tamizh Padam 1” and “Tamizh Padam 2” uploaded a tweet writing “If the Arivu erasure wasn’t a deliberate & blatant move, Dhee, Santhosh Narayanan and A.R Rahman should speak up, otherwise it will go down as a historical injustice. These are people we believe are on the right side of the good fight, I really hope they do the right thing”
