Faisal Azizi released a new song titled “Qouli Alash Kwitini”, a song from the Jewish “Shgouri” heritage. This song is quite famous in Morocco; it is the theme song of the famous serial “Disk Hyati”.

The song sparked controversy on social networking pages because of its sexual connotation classifying it to be “pornographic” according to some spectators.
