British rapper M.I.A. has launched a new conspiracy-laden endeavour with a ‘revolutionary’ clothing line battling radiowaves.

The music star, real name Mathangi ‘Maya’ Arulpragasam, fittingly announced the fashion brand Ohmni on right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ notorious conspiracy website Infowars.

She explained the silver ponchos would protect the wearers from nanoparticles, which she called ‘evil dust’, according to Dazed.

In response, Jones called the collection ‘pure genius’ adding that ‘the CIA is obsessed with style and fashion, that’s how they control culture.’

Ohmni’s mission statement lists various modern-day concerns such as ‘smart cities, digital crypto and internal body data harvesting’ as the impetus behind the fashion line.

The statement continues: ‘OHMNI is your last frontier at preserving your privacy, autonomy, and rights over your body and your data. This is not your artist foray into fashion. This is a necessity.’

The clothing is described as the ‘armour of the modern knight’ during a time when houses are a ‘digital battlefield’.

‘Future backwards is R U TUF. If the conspiracy theorists are wrong, good for you, you own some beautiful clothes made with pure silver and precious metals. But, if they are right, you just might have saved the future of humanity,’ it concludes.

The official Instagram goes into further detail about the design of the clothes.

Fact check: does 5G harm the body?

There is no concrete evidence that 5G infiltrates or negatively affects the body.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 5G extends into higher frequencies around 3.5 GHz and up to a few tens of GHz.

It added that ‘after much research performed, no adverse health effect has been causally linked with exposure to wireless technologies’.

Research conducted by the BBC further backed this conclusion.

Dr Frank De Vocht, who helps advise the government on mobile phone safety told the publication that ‘although some of the research suggests a statistical possibility of increased cancer risks for heavy users, the evidence to date for a causal relation is not sufficiently convincing to suggest the need for precautionary action’.

The ‘full protection poncho’ is made with 48% pure copper-nickel and supposedly makes you ‘invisible’ to thermal imaging, drones and UAVs.

It also ‘blocks 99.99% of Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, 5G, Bluetooth, RFID, GPS, Satellite and EMF Radiation.’

Meanwhile the ‘tin foil hat’ serves much the same purpose with ‘100% brain coverage’.

This is not the first time M.I.A, 48, has been vocal about her conspiracy-fuelled viewpoint.

In 2022, a jury ordered conspiracy theorist Jones to pay nearly $1billion (£894million) to the families of victims of the Sandy Hook mass shooting after years of claiming it was a staged attack.

Leaping to offer her own analysis, the Paper Planes rapper (who at this point was also anti-Covid vaccine) tweeted: ‘If Alex Jones pays for lying shouldn’t every celebrity pushing vaccines pay too?’

After being questioned by the likes of actor Elijah Wood, she added: ‘Alex jones lying and Pfizer lying both trending.

‘One with penalty other without.  If you have no critical thinking faculty, this is about as crazy as we should get before a nuclear war wipe out the human race.’

The bold statement coincided with the release of her sixth album Mata.

In an interview with the Guardian the same year, she expanded on her concerns about vaccines.

‘The language they use to attack anybody is to say: “Oh, she’s an anti-vaxxer” or blah blah blah. And it’s like, no, not really,’ she said.

‘I know three people who have died from taking the vaccine and I know three people who have died from Covid. This is in my life, in my experience.

‘If anyone is going to deny that experience and gaslight me, saying: “No, that’s not your experience,” then what is the point of anything?’

According to the official Pfizer website, heart issues ‘have rarely been observed’ in relation to the vaccine nor have there been any ‘signs of DNA mutation or COVID-19 vaccine-induced cancer’.

Earlier this year the MBE recipient also took to social media to blame President Biden for not being able to see her 14-year-old son Ikhyd due to ongoing struggles to secure a US visa.
