Namewee Eyes World Record with Catchy New Music Video


The often controversial artiste wants everyone across the world to join hands and do the ‘wa’ dance for peace and harmony.


Namewee hopes to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records by having the most number of people simultaneously dance to his latest music video Makudona­rudo, Sinchew Daily reported.

The song with a catchy tune and lyrics is a collaboration between Namewee and Japan’s COOL Japan TV.

According to the report, this was Japan’s first music production which combined foreign music with traditional Japanese festival music.

In the music video, Namewee performs with Japanese actress Meu Ninomiya, with one of the scenes depicting the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, Tokyo.

In a post on his official Facebook page, Namewee explained that the dance with people dancing in circles was a traditional dance in Japan.

Called ‘wa’, the dance signifies the Japanese words for ‘peace’ and ‘harmony’.

“The idea of the dance is for all to get hand in hand. I hope everyone across the world, regardless of country, colour, culture or language, can join hands to take part in this dance,” Namewee wrote.

The music video has garnered 5.9 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded on Nov 19.
