Lamjarred composed and wrote the song himself while in pre-trial detention at one of France’s prisons, after a French girl accused him of ‘attempted rape’ on October 26, 2016.
The song’s distributor and director Jalal Hamdawi said in a statement to Morocco's “24 Today” that in the song, the artist talks about his ordeal while imprisoned. Some people have come to see that the lyrics are targeted to his accuser.
