  • Manike crosses 122 million views 
  • Failure to recognize achievement questioned 
The Government is to felicitate Sri Lanka’s singing sensation Yohani on her achievement with the song Manike Mage Hithe.
 
Sri Lankan authorities had been questioned on social media over the failure to formally recognize Yohani and Satheeshan for going global with their hit song.
The song has become a major global hit and has now crossed over 122 million views on YouTube.
 
When contacted by Daily Mirror, Youth Affairs Minister Namal Rajapaksa said that the Government was not in a position to have any public event to felicitate Yohani on her achievement as a result of the Covid situation.
 
However, he said that while the Government recognizes her achievement, a formal felicitation event will take place once the Covid situation improves further.
“It is a great achievement and she herself worked very hard for this. Yohani is a good hardworking, young talented artiste. As the Minister of Youth Affairs this is what we like to see,” he said.
 
Rajapaksa said that people like Yohani can motivate other youngsters as well. 
 
“We would love to see more young Sri Lankans going global,” the Minister said. Yohani said today that she has now been exclusively signed as a Wingman India artist and will be managed by Sonu Lakhwani in India.

    Did the government felicitate the two Olympic medalists? it is nice to see a young girl making headlines, but it is the sound and technology that is behind this. Is this what we call talent???? I wonder!

    And Amitab Bachan's influence. Still, it's an achievement but we should know the real reasons and go in the same direction to make more Yohanis. Unlike we won the Cricket WorldCup and trashed Whatmore looking at wrong reasons.

    Shouldn't forget Satheeshan and the others in that team. Yes it is Yohani's lovely voice and singing ...it's my personal openion

    Yohani. Please please do not join any political side. Budhusaranai devi pihitai.

    Yohani, Stay away from the government. Government means politicians who only know how to abuse people for their benefit.

    Now she will get a house.

    Sambo Saturday, 25 September 2021 11:36 AM

    Why only the young girl, what about the partner as well.

    Has she won a Grammy award? What about Satheesan? I wish the government would stay away from her career. Soon Rohitha will join her.

    Sinthu Nariya Saturday, 25 September 2021 09:46 PM

    The Government is going to appoint a Singing Minister. There will soon be tuition classes for singing and thousands of otherwise illiterate hopefuls will learn to sing. Yohani, I wish you well and congratulate you, but time to take another career. Your present career is about To be ruined by politics in SL.
