VIDEO FEATURES SEXUAL CONTENT. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
AN INDONESIAN dangdut duo known as Dua Semangka (Watermelon Duo) has been forced to apologise after their ‘Mantul Mantul’ (Bounce) video was deemed too sexual.
The busty duo's raunchy moves – that see them both jump up and down while gyrating at shopping centres and car parks – led to them being summoned by the Indonesian children's commission.
The singers – Clara Gopa and Vanya Kiara – were reprimanded by authorities.
The country's Commission for the Protection of Indonesian Children (KPAI) called the women for questioning after reportedly receiving complaints from the public.
The offending footage features Clara and Vanya, who reportedly insured their prodigious breasts for one billion rupiah (RM308,000), dancing and bouncing in skimpy attire and making sexually suggestive moves.
Susanto, head of the KPAI, told local media that complainants voiced concerns that the video is “against the values of appropriateness”, according to Indonesian newspaper Tribun News.
He added: “We fear children will imitate their moves. So we are merely seeking clarification.”
After meeting with the commission, the singers apologised to the public, according to local media.
The pair told reporters: “This will be a lesson for us to be careful in the future and to try and entertain in a more positive way.
“Our sexy image will still be there, but we will cover up anything vulgar.”
Sonny Bule, the manager of Duo Semangka, said the pair will change their content and added that the video is “perhaps not too good for the young generation and Indonesian children.”
Dangdut music is popular in Indonesia and originates from traditional Hindustani and Arabic music of the 1930s.
But the modern genre is causing outrage in the majority Muslim country for its sexually explicit content. – Daily Mail
