Exploitation. That's the keyword here. Although some might disagree with it. Long story short, this is simply a music video with kids hailing the embattled tech company Huawei as a force to be reckoned with, which in all honesty, again, the company's doing reasonably well.

The issue arises given the constant issue coming from Washington about the allegations and allies related to Chinese espionage.
