Round 1! (Dan round yang terakhir for me on this subject unless someone goes to jail)
Soooo, this SplatZoner left a comment on Youtube asking me what I thought about the Atama incident and I’m like…what incident? I Googled Atama but nothing came up. However, I decided to join his Facebook network, lo and behold drama unfolds. If you’re interested, here is the link to his facebook and a link to answer your question on who is Atama?

So the whole she-bang is between a local artist and theSabahgovernment officials. One, is the Deputy Chief Minister of Sabah who is also a Huguan Siou of the Kadazan Dusun Murut community. What is a Huguan Siou I hear you ask, I also don’t know but my Tard 1 gave me a photo which sums it up pretty neatly.
The other official is the Chief Minister of Sabah and the last person involved in this is a member of UMNO (political party). All three were seen in a picture drinking a cup (each) of some sort of beverage. The photo itself is not the problem, the problem lies in what Atama did with the said photo. So instead of me typing and repeating myself (since I cover this in the video) you can click on this link to see what Atama did with the photo.

So the photo went out to the public via his Facebook and the shit hit the fan (pusing la kau kipas, jangan tidak pusing). Some were amused and supported Atama, it showed a brave soul who was willing to shed the truth on the plights of the Kadazan Dusum Murut community inSabah. Many believe it is a race that is slowly dwindling into extinction and the parties that are suppose to protect this heritage are actually capitalizing and exploiting them. Others are criticizing Atamas rebellious act as childish, immature and inevitable since Atama is a self glorifying artist who only cares about himself and will stoop to nothing to get more popular. It received such a bad response that a complaint was lodged against Atama by the PBS Youth (political party). Kena sue si kawan.
That was in January, and just when you think the dust has settled, someone goes and stirs the hornet’s nest. Atama was scheduled to perform at the Unduk Ngadau on the 31st of May but was barred by the organizers even though they were the ones who invited him to perform. Apparently, according to Atama he found out that one of the individuals in the photo that he mocked was responsible for barring his performance. Which was a strategical move from Tan Sri since the Unduk Ngadau has a very high profile inSabahand attracts thousands of spectators from all overSabahand tourist from various parts of the world. Atama lost his chance to introduce his new song to the local public as well the potential to snag more fans in the process. Sandih urang bilang.
Cut the long story short (ahbutthen?) Atama is humiliated and wishes to take legal action. Si kawan pun sue balik. He visits a member of Kota Kinabalu parliament to see what can be done and all we can do now is see if there will be an all out war between Atama and the Government.

In the meantime I asked Atama on his Facebook wall if he was busy with any upcoming events and it seems this whole fiasco hasn’t stop him from getting offers for jobs as he is currently involved in a Telemovie in July and new releases coming out soon. My video summarizes what happened, (apa de jadi?) and what is currently going on. If your not from KK you won’t understand what the heck I’m saying but then again even if your in KK you might still not understand what I’m trying to say so…so…I forgot what I was about to say. In the end maybe don’t watch the video la.
If the content is not to your liking, watch it for the pure entertainment of how my hair can look so bad after it has just been washed. Check out my hair’s parting maut near the end.
