An Iraqi man divorced his bride during their wedding ceremony for playing a ‘provocative’ Syrian song (Mesaytara – which translates to ‘I am dominant’ or ‘I will control you’), reports Gulf News.

It was reported that the bride was dancing to the rhythm of ‘Mesaytara’, which the groom and his family considered a provocation. Later, the groom entered into an argument with his bride and divorced her in the wedding hall.

This is not the first time this song has caused newlyweds to get divorced. Last year, a Jordanian man broke up with his bride during their wedding celebrations after she played this song.


The first part of the song goes:

I am dominant; you will be ruled under my strict instructions;

‘I will drive you crazy if you looked at other girls on the street;


‘Yes, I’m dominant;

‘You’re my piece of sugar;

‘As long as you’re with me, you’ll walk under my command.”
