    I just have one question… (pake indo aja ya, english-ku cekak)
    Kenapa (artis) muslim yang lahir sebagai minoritas (ie. UK) keliatannya bagus banget memegang agama mereka, tapi (artis) yang lahir sebagai mayoritas (seperti di negeri kita tercinta ini) kadang malah awut-awutan đŸ˜¦

    Dear Sami,
    I am an Irish poet, as I am sure you are aware – there is a statue of liberty on the east coast of America – but there is no statue of Responsibility on the West coast – would you consider an album with the proceeds going to build such a statue?
    Currently there are limited means of expressing to America our peaceful concerns over the ongoing cycle of war,
    best wishes,
