An Instagram post uploaded by Shan Vincent De Paul, a Canadian recording artist about the tweet uploaded by influential Tamil filmmaker Pa. Ranjith has irked the fans of Tamil cinema from across the world. He who termed Pa.

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.
