Rejoice, Sheila Majid fans! Not only did your favourite singer just release a brand new album, “Boneka”, but she also has something exciting for her supporters.
“Surprise! My dream of entertaining fans in a big-scale concert is finally being met, thanks to all the sponsors! Apart from ‘Boneka’, the concert is my biggest gift to fans in Malaysia,” said the Malaysian iconic songstress.
“Boneka” marks Sheila’s first full-length album in 13 years. “It took me 3 years to compile the right material for the album. I received a lot of new songs from composers but only a handful met my expectations,” the singer told Star2.
“I actually was not that interested in releasing another album because of the unstable state of the music industry. However, I did it because of all the fans who kept asking me when I was going to release something new! ‘Boneka’ is my gift to my fans,” Sheila added.
So what inspired the album title? “I named this album ‘Boneka’ (puppet in English) because that’s what I turn myself into when I am performing on stage in front of the audience. Even with a glamorous image as an entertainer, the fact is that I am simply a human being with a high profile job. I see myself as a puppet that belongs to my fans when I’m on stage.” the 52-year-old pop diva shared.
The last time Sheila performed in Stadium Negara was during her first solo concert, “Konsert Lagenda”, back in 1991. Although Malaysia’s jazz queen has been consistently performing on and off over the past few years (including her charity concert, “Aku Cinta Pada Mu”), this will be her first major concert in 7 years.
