Son Tung M-TP’s new MV is banned
According to The Authority of Broadcasting and Electronic Information (Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications) said:
“The content in Son Tung M-TP’s new MV with the image of suicide is negative for young people and will negatively affect teenagers. Especially, in the context of many cases of Vietnamese students committing suicide recently”.
Son Tung M-TP’s new MV also violates Clause 4, Article 3, Decree 144/202/Decree – Government on art performance activities and penalties for violations in customs. The Authority of Broadcasting and Electronic Information has coordinated with the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism to ban this MV in Vietnam and will issue a sanction against the male singer Son Tung M-TP.
It is known that the ban on Son Tung M-TP’s new MV is due to the content of the MV “There’s No One At All” which is causing an uproar in public opinion. Most Vietnamese people condemn negative images of young people’s suicide. Others are anti-fans protesting because Son Tung M-TP used many images and styles similar to South Korean male singer G-Dragon.
YouTube Vietnam has also received a request to ban this MV on the YouTube platform.
The official media channel of the Government of Vietnam has also commanded to immediately remove Son Tung M-TP’s new MV on all platforms.
After the controversy over the content of the new music product, Son Tung M-TP apologized and announced the suspension of the release of the MV “There’s No One At All” on Vietnamese servers. However, YouTube users can fake IP (VPN) to other countries to be able to watch this MV normally.
