The 'Rolling Stone India' magazine featured both Dhee and Shan Vincent De Paul on their August cover for the success Neeye Oli from Sarpatta Parambarai and independent hit Enjoy Enjaami, omitting the songs' lyricist Arivu who also sang Enjoy Enjaami with Dhee. Check out their post here:
.@talktodhee and @shanvdp appear on our August 2021 cover. The triumphant South Asian artists have been at the front of erasing border lines with songs like "Enjoy Enjaami" and "Neeye Oli" respectively, released via platform and label @joinmaajja— Rolling Stone India (@RollingStoneIN) August 20, 2021

Meanwhile, this is not the first time Arivu's portrait was omitted during the promotion of Enjoy Enjaami. Earlier, the song became the first-ever independent Tamil song to be featured on the Times Square Billboard. However, Dhee's image together with DJ Snake who remixed the original version was displayed.
Now the Sarpatta Parambarai director has questioned Rolling Stones India magazine and music label Maajaa the reason for omitting Arivu in their latest promotion. Check out his post here:
@TherukuralArivu, the lyricist of #Neeyaoli and singer as well as lyricist of #enjoyenjami has once again been invisiblised. @RollingStoneIN and @joinmaajja is it so difficult to understand that the lyrics of both songs challenges this erasure of public acknowledgement? https://t.co/jqLjfS9nwY— pa.ranjith (@beemji) August 22, 2021
