Singer Sufian Suhaimi won the best performance at the 33rd Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL33) – the Malaysia’s equivalent of Grammy Awards – last night for his hit song “Di Matamu”.
Fans were touched by the singer’s soulful and passionate performance. Many were impressed at Sufian, who also left a bigger impact to the audience when they saw the props he used on the stage.
The prop turned out to be a bridal bed that looked eerily similar to the one at his ex-fiance’s Elfira Loy’s recent wedding ceremony.
Many were shocked but at the same time, they were excitd by the effort he put to convey his heartbroken emotion via the song, especially during the ending where he sat on the bridal bed alone.
Though a lot of people were touched by his performance, some said that the 26-year-old is a sly opportunist who uses his ex-fiance to gain sympathy.
Many condemned him for his action as it seems as though he was shading the actress, but nevertheless, his performance fit the theme of the song. It wasn’t a surprise when he received a standing ovation from the audience that night.
Elfira Loy who is currently in Mecca to perform Umrah has sort of responded to the singer as well. The actress tweeted, “Sufian Suhaimi, I pray that you’ll win tonight. Hopefully with that win, your “suffering” and stories will end.”
Oh, the shade!
Sufian Suhaimi , saya doakan awak menang harini . Semoga dengan kemenangan awak , “ derita “ & penceritaan awak akan habis. 😊
