Bob Marley Inspired Satirical “No Woman No Drive” Goes Viral [VIDEO]
Bob Marley died over three decades ago but his music is inspiring generations.
Comedian Hisham Fageeh says he was inspired by the reggae legend’s classic “No Woman No Cry,” to perform a satirical tune he titled “No Woman No Drive.”
Fageeh’s goal was to take a jab at the controversial law in Saudi Arabia banning all female drivers.
Hisham Fageeh uploaded the video “No Woman No Drive” on YouTube on October 26 and it has gone viral with over 6.5 million views in three days.
Let’s take a look at some of the lyrics to “No Woman No Drive.”
“No woman no drive, no woman no drive / Say I remember, when you used to sit / In the family car but backseat / Ova-ovaries all safe and well / So you can make lots and lots of babies / Good friends we had and good friends we lost / On the highway / In this bright future you can’t forget your past / So put your car keys away,” Fageeh sings.
The comedian says he is merely entertaining folks rather than making a political statement.
