Dato’ Seri Vida’s daughter Cik B once had the woeful experience of facing the loss of her two elder brothers, Muhammad Eddie Zuhdie and Muhammad Edrie Zikri, who tragically died in a fire incident 8 years ago.
Speaking exclusively to Astro Gempak, Cik B (full name Nur Edlynn Zamileen Muhammad Amin), recalled how the heartbreaking episode took place in Meru Hills, Ipoh, Perak on 4th August 2013, just a few days prior to the Hari Raya celebration that year.
When the incident occurred, Cik B and her younger sibling, Kacak, were outside the hostel where her mother’s employees lived. “We were embarrassed to come in because it was a house (specifically prepared) for Mama’s employees. All of a sudden, I saw there were ashes flying and began to see plumes of smoke from a burning sofa,” she shared.
“When I saw the house starting to burn down, I ran to the security guard and told him there was a fire. Our neighbours also came to help. I remember Mama’s workers used a mattress to jump down from the top floor. Some of them broke their legs due to the fall,” the 16-year-old continued.
The “Tolonglah” rapper further added that some of the staff attempted to save her two brothers. However, they didn’t dare to jump down. She recalled, “They were too afraid to jump down, so they fled to the toilet. There, their bodies were discovered in the arms of a worker that died.”
“Both of them were clad in their Hari Raya clothes at that time. Not only that, Edrie also wore his brand new watch,” Cik B further shared, before clarifying, “They were not burnt to death, but they passed away from drowning in the thick smoke.” She then concluded,“If they’re still around, of course the festive season will be merrier every year.”
We’re sincerely hope that Cik B, Dato’ Seri Vida and the rest of their family members will stay strong for the rest of the days to come.
