There was big commotion in the society regarding the incident of getting down US hip-hop singer Akon for a concert in Sri Lanka. According to state media the ‘patriotic’ masses angered by the incident displayed their anger by throwing stones and other missiles at a private media institution. The government pointed out that getting down this singer was an insult to Sri Lanka which is a pure Buddhist country.  They also added that such a concert would wreck ‘morality and good values’ that exist in the country. To prove their point several frames from one of Ekons videos were cited.
