The Singer “Shahin Najafi” and his love in Germany
Morteza Najafipoor Moghaddam (born 10 September 1980), better known as Shahin Najafi, is an musician, singer, composer, songwriter, guitarist, poet, author, and political activist. The song has drawn sharp anger from protesters who believe it is offensive towards Imam Naghi, the 10th Imam in Shi’ite. In an interview, Najafi stated that he was inspired by “The Campaign to Remind Shiites about Imam Naghi” to compose the song. The campaign is a Facebook page that pokes fun at, and specifically Shi’ite, hadiths, with members creating fake, funny hadiths and stories centered around a fictional character named Naghi, who is based on Imam Naghi.
