Where has Anita Sarawak (real name Ithnaini M.Taib) been all these years?
The legendary diva seemingly vanished from the entertainment business out of a sudden in 2011 and has not been spotted in public. Since then, there have been plenty of speculations about the 66-year-old singer’s whereabouts.
Word on the street has it that Anita had returned to the United States to reside in Las Vegas. A few also suggest that perhaps she has made a new life in France after staying there for a couple of years. Last year, some even claimed that they saw the entertainer back in her birth country in Singapore where she was apparently dining at a restaurant in a remote area of Ang Mo Kio.
Recently, Anita (or Kak Nita as her fans call her) was rumoured to have had received treatment for cancer from a private hospital located in Kuala Lumpur. Her inner circle of friends have apparently visited her but were asked to keep mum about her health condition. There are even whispers that the beloved superstar is no longer recognisable anymore.
Back in March, music producer Helen Yap dedicated a heartfelt birthday post on Instagram along with a few throwback photos. Check it out here:

Happy birthday Anita Sarawak 24/3 wherever you are I wish you good health and happiness. There is no entertainer like Kak Nita. A super professional singer at all levels and I had the honour of being her music director for 10 years 2002-2012. When she left suddenly in 2012 I was shocked and felt very sad for a long while. No closure for all of us who know her. No contact no news. Just cold silence. A lot of emotions go through us wondering always what happened. She would call me to chat every Sunday but suddenly she’s gone.. left Malaysia without a word or a goodbye. we had to slowly come to terms with that. Took a while before I could listen to her songs again. #anitasarawak #singaporeanartiste #memories #throwback
Regardless where Anita is, we pray that she’s happy and in good health.
