Singer Defends Nationalist Music as Second Rapper, 17, Arrested

A prominent singer is speaking out to defend young musicians as a second rapper was arrested this month for incitement after posting songs about the problems he sees plaguing Cambodia.

The arrest of the 17-year-old rapper, who shared his songs on YouTube, follows the arrest earlier this month of Kea Sokun, 22, for his song “Dey Khmer,” or Khmer Land.

The 17-year-old’s father told VOD that he had warned his underage son not to offer social critiques, and wanted to see him given the chance to apologize and come out of jail.
