Dato’ Aliff Syukri recently expressed his gratitude and excitement upon learning that his latest Raya song called “Lala Raya” has been trending and reached 1 million views on YouTube.
According to the entrepreneur, even though he had to compete with a few other great singers out there, he never thought his song would receive such an overwhelming response from listeners.
Scrolling through the comments section on his Instagram, many netizens and followers alike congratulated him on his success. Interestingly, even local celebrity Zizan Razak admitted that Aliff possesses great talent as a singer.
“It’s clear that Dato’ (Aliff) is the number one singer in the country. Trending at number one once again. Your vocals are similar to western singers. Hopefully I can see you performing at the Grammy Awards after this,” the “Infiniti Cinta” singer remarked, to which he replied, “InsyaAllah, pray for me. That’s a dream I hope to bring to pass.”
We love the confidence!
Not only that, the “Cuba Bahagia” singer even posted a screenshot of the comment on his social media, thanking Zizan for his kind words. “I feel appreciated. Thank you @zizanrazak869 for praising my voice. He’s really good at assessing someone’s talent. God willing, I will sing for you live as a sign of my appreciation. It’ll be for free, you don’t have to pay. I’m so thankful that my vocals and talent are now seen by people,” Aliff wrote.
For those curious, Lala Raya was composed by Amy Ukays together with Aliff’s beloved wife, Datin Nur Shahida. The song has now gained over 1.4 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded on 4th May.
