Rami Ayash executed
Lebanese singer Rami Ayash has released his latest music video "Khalini Ma’ak" (Keep me with you), by prominent Lebanese director Saeed Al Marouq. The video includes graphic scenes, such as Rami being executed in an electric chair that have given rise to much criticism.
Saeed explained that images of death and torture were used in the clip to reflect a person’s inner pain, and reflect the chaos that the singer is experiencing from the desertion of his love. Portraying Rami in a destroyed home, seated on an electric chair, and running as if someone is following him, are images created to translate the words and emotions of the song into actual events.
At the end of the clip Rami returns to his home, but this time it is not destroyed, to show that despite all of his pain, he can still find comfort in life and time will make him forget his heartache.
In no way did Saeed intend on portraying Rami as a criminal running from the law and hence being punished in an electric chair, as many critics wrongly concluded.
Recently, Rami underwent extensive treatment to remove benign tumors in France. the singer is now making a great effort to put his career back on track.
