Malaysian veteran songstress Adibah Noor is shocked to find out that her award-winning song “Terlalu Istimewa” (Too Special), a tribute song dedicated to rape victims especially the late Nurul Huda Abdul Ghani, has been used as the theme for a certain couple’s wedding.

For those of you who are not aware, Nurul Huda was a 10-year-old girl who was raped and murdered in Gelang Patah, Johor back in 2004. The song was released in 2005 and won several awards at the 21st Anugerah Juara Lagu (Champion of Songs Awards), one of Malaysia’s prestigious award ceremonies.

“To all the brothers and sisters… For those who love listening to songs but don’t quite understand the lyrics, ‘Terlalu Istimewa’ is my tribute to the late Nurul Huda Abdul Ghani and those that suffer the same fate,” she said in her tweet.

“So, please don’t use the song for your wedding video,” she added.

Many on Twitter are also surprised to learn that some people actually used the heart-wrenching song for happy events as the message are quite clear in the lyrics and music video.

The 48-year-old singer who used to be an English teacher also said that some people even sing the song live at weddings, noting that many of them didn’t understand the lyrics properly.

“Please do not use the song at someone’s appreciation event as well okay,” the actress-singer said in another tweet.

“Terlalu Istimewa” is composed by Azlan Abu Hassan with lyrics written by Adibah herself. The song was the overall champion, the best ballad, and best vocal at the 2006 Anugerah Juara Lagu.
