How many ministers does it take to talk about an SG50 song?

Based on what happened this weekend, the answer is two whole ministers!

In response to some complaints that a song was rejected for being written by a non-Singaporean, PAP ministers Lawrence Wong and Tan Chuan-Jin took to their Facebook pages to praise the song.

Lawrence Wong in particular said that the song was ‘inspiring’, but clarified that it was submitted to Mediacorp’s competition and not the gahmen’s.

Is the song really that good? Here is the video to help you make your own judgement:

What do you think?

Anyway, now you know the answer. The next time you write a song and get disqualified, you can approach PAP ministers Lawrence Wong and Tan Chuan-Jin for some publicity.
