The return of 90s heartthrob Sham Visa has received widespread reaction among local fans thanks to his recent appearance. The 43-year-old now sports a more suave look with his thick beard and moustache complete with a pair of glasses to complement his new and improved image.
Most netizens felt that his new look resembles Robert Downey Jr.’s famous character Tony Stark a.k.a Ironman! Check out his then and now photo below:
For the uninitiated, Sham (real name Rohisham Hashim) found mainstream success as the main vocalist of the rock band Visa. He then went on a hiatus to focus on his full-time career offshore.
Despite the positive comments, he was attacked by online trolls who accused him of going under the knife in order to look exactly like the Marvel superhero. “I can’t give any comments about the reports. Some said that I’ve undergone plastic surgery to look exactly like Tony Stark. But I want to thank my dad for giving me this face,” the singer-actor said in an interview with Awani, implying that he got his facial feature from his father.
The “Dalam Gerimis” singer further added that he doesn’t want to take the rumour too seriously. Instead, he wants to put his attention on his comeback in order to fulfil fans’ request to see him being active again in the music industry. In case you don’t know, Sham is currently competing for the 6th season of “Gegar Vaganza”.
“It’s been a while since I last performed on stage, so I have to focus on my skills in singing, vocals and other things. One of the main reasons I agreed on joining “Gegar Vaganza 6″ is because of the fans. Most of them have missed me performing live. So, for that reason I decided to make an appearance through this platform,” Sham commented during the session.
Besides Sham, 12 other experienced singers have also make their long-awaited comeback for the latest season of the local music show. Feel free to check out the list of the participating contestants here.
