Child Soldier Relief

DeLon, M.I.A. sing about war and child soldiers in Sri Lanka…

…and are currently engaged in a battle of words.

In late July, Sri Lankan rapper DeLon released a video attacking Sri Lankan singer M.I.A., accusing her of supporting the Tamil Tigers.  She denies the claim.

Check out his his video (it has disturbing images) on his blog, scroll down about halfway, called “M.I.A Paper Planes (Diss by DeLon).”

And from this article:

DeLon’s version re-cuts M.I.A. version with Tamil Tiger bombings and child soldiers, and openly questions whether M.I.A. supports terrorists. DeLon notes that M.I.A. consistently uses tigers in imagery — on clothes, in videos — and that M.I.A. has called her father a “freedom fighter.”  A little back-story: Her father is credited as a co-founder of a militant pro-Tamil group called EROS, which, in turn, was once linked to the Tamil Tigers. The Tigers have been labeled a terrorist group by many countries, including the United States.
