Makhna Ne Jail Chakhna: Yo Yo Honey Singh In Trouble Again For Distasteful Lyrics

Makhna Ne Jail Chakhna: Yo Yo Honey Singh In Trouble Again For Distasteful Lyrics

Punjabi rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh’s songs become the life of parties, but they are always called out for misogynistic, distasteful lyrics. Sure, Honey Singh has amassed a huge fan following with his music and rap, but the objectification of women in his songs refuses to die down.

The singer, after being out of action for almost a year, released his single Makhna in December last year. His comeback garnered a lot of attention from fans and the song became an instant hit. But to our dismay, the song has some really appalling and absurd lyrics. Guess the apparent ‘break’ he took was not to reflect on his work. Nothing has changed. In fact, it’s only got worse.


The lyrics of the song go like:


Par main hoon womaniser

Mujhe akele mein matt mill

Silicon wali ladkiyon ko main pakadta nahi

Brown girl se mera dil bharta nahi

Gori gori skin ke liye main marta nahi

Kyon ki main hoon sher ghaas charta nahi

Ridiculous, no?

Manisha Gulati, Chairperson of the Punjab State Women Commission, has written to the Additional Chief Secretary, Home, Punjab DGP and IG Crime, Punjab, recommending action against the singer for objectionable lyrics.

In her application, Gulati has written, “A legal action and an inquiry are required to be initiated by the police on the matter as the song readied by T-Series chairman Bhushan Kumar and singers Honey Singh and Neha Kakkar uses vulgar words against women.”

She demanded that the song be banned and raised objections against the Censor Board. Gulati will meet the State Government officials to get the song banned at least in Punjab.

Not just the song, but the video also is very inappropriate. 

Of course, this isn’t the first time someone has spoken up about Honey Singh’s lyrics. 

Here are some more Honey Singh songs that have awful lyrics.

1. Blue Eyes

Champagne ger di hai tune meri pant pe

Kehti hai change karlo hotel leke rent pe

Why would anyone do this? Guess it’s just his yo-yo-ing imagination.

2. High Heels

Tujh jaisi toh pat jati hai

Phir durghatna ghat jati hai

Main hoon shikari kudiye

Khali mera waar nee jaata

Mujhko na pehchane kyun

Tere ghar akhbar nee aata

You’re not worthy of being talked about in the newspaper!

3. Chaar Botal Vodka

Suji-Suji Aankhein Meri Phir Bhi Dekho

Ladkiyon Ko Kaise Yeh Nihaarein..

Why the hell was this song even shot?

4. Birthday Bash

Manne suna hai tu twenty plus ho gayi

Chadhti jawaani teri bebas ho gayi

Gat gat veeti jaaye

Kisi ke bhi haath na aaye

Bas tu toh yehi chaahe

Chhede na koi vekhi jaaye

Honey Singh, this is called harassment.

5. Get Up Jawaani

O meri rani, teri jawani

Tere badan pe fisalta paani

Kasam khuda ki aag lagaati

Get up get up get up wooh

This is the Yo Yo (read vulgar) version of Tip Tip Barsa Pani.


6. Daftar Ki Girl

Mere saath jab weekend bitayegi

Wo nazaare tu bhool na paayegi

Sakhi saheli ko sabko bateyegi

Ek baari dekh legi na, to tu pagal ho jayegi

To tu paagal ho jaayegi…

No, just no.


7. Break Up Party

Dil se hai maine aaj usko nikala

Dil to hai pagal jo fudakta tha saala

Finger dikhayi uski photo bhi jalayi

Phir flush me bahake thodi thandak si aayi

Is baat is baat is baat pe uthao haath

She’s lucky to have broken up with a guy like that!


Back in December 2012, rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh was slammed for vulgar and offensive lyrics demeaning women in the song, Volume 1. I bet you know why I am not naming the full song. Don’t Google it, or you’ll be horrified, too.

It’s time guys, we really need to stop promoting his crappy songs!
