Bulgarian rapper Serafim Martinov aka Sarafa is to be interrogated by the country's National Investigation Services over song lyrics, local media have informed.

The song "White, Green and Red" by Big Sha ft Sarafa, Xplicit & Konsa has drawn the attention of local authorities, as they presumably believe it is degrading the Bulgarian national flag.

The colors white, green and red, representing the horizontally striped national flag of the Balkan country, are associated with cocaine, marijuana and menstrual blood in the song.

As local pundits have pointed out, the song also contains criticism towards the ruling GERB party of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov.

"I don't trust GERB, but I strongly trust the coat of arms," the lyrics go, referring to the national coat of arms. The abbreviation GERB is pronounced the same as "coat of arms" in Bulgarian.

Big Sha has already been questioned regarding the song.

"Both Kostov and Borisov turned out to be fraudsters," Sarafa raps in another song, referring to Boyko Borisov and former PM Ivan Kostov (1997-2001).
