Shahin Najafi (IRN)

Shahin Najafi (IRN)Shahin Najafi is a pain in the ass for Iran’s mullahs and a hero for young people striving for freedom in their country. His satirical, unabashedly poetical songs deal mostly with contentious issues like theocracy, poverty, sexism, censorship, child labour, execution, drug addiction and homophobia. Despite living under the threat of two fatwas since 2012 (‘thanks to’ death judgements issued by a leading ayatollah), Shahin Najafi continues to express the hopes and thirst of fellow Iranians for freedom and human rights.
