Neelofa has spoken up after her name and that of her husband’s were seemingly brought up by Caprice, in the midst of his intensified feud with Muslim preacher Ustaz Ebit Lew.
During the latter’s live broadcast session held earlier today, the popular celeb stepped forth to deny that she and her hubby, PU Riz were “betrayed” by Ebit Lew when he participated in his aid mission to Gaza, Palestine.
Refusing to stay silent after getting called out, Lofa also revealed that she’ll be reaching out to Caprice in person for clarification on the matter. “This is not right. I will contact Caprice and ask why he linked the names of people who are not involved,” she wrote in the comments during the Live session.
The fashionista businesswoman added by writing, “My mom has nothing to do with all the issues happening between you and Caprice. I ask you not to associate us with these groundless allegations.” Ebit then responded to Lofa’s comments, saying that he was only conveying what he knew about the case.
“All right, Neelofa. You can ask Caprice himself on why he uploaded the screenshot. I answered his statement. I’m fine with everyone,” the 36-year-old clarified to the actress. Though, it remains unclear to whom exactly Lofa was referring to in her remarks.
For the uninitiated, the drama involving the aforementioned figures started after Caprice (real name Ariz Ramli) posted a screenshot of a conversation on his IG Story, claiming that Ebit took the humanitarian mission proposal to Gaza, which was done by the celebrity couple and another activist, Heliza Helmi.
On top of that, the “Dem Girls” rapper further claimed that the paper was then submitted to Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein for Ebit to go with his team. It didn’t take long before the post went viral online, not long after he came out with several other allegations targeted towards Ebit.

Following various untrue allegations made against him, Ebit has since lodged a report at the Dang Wangi police station yesterday (Wednesday, 21st July).
Update (Friday, 23rd July):
PU Riz has finally admitted that he and Lofa did received an offer to join the humanitarian mission to Gaza and had a prior discusseion with the Malaysia Consultative Council of Islamic Organisation (MAPIM).
“It’s true that my wife and several other celebrities, including Ustaz Ebit Lew, got an offer to go to Gaza. We were expected to go there in June. However, I was informed that the project could not continue for several reasons. Later, I found out that Ebit and his team were able to fly to Gaza to carry out the mission. It’s their rezeki (luck),” he told Harian Metro.
He then added, “I have no knowledge of anything that happened afterwards. I hope that my explanation clears the air on the matter and hopefully, people will stop speculating about it. I pray that all the good things that we do will be blessed by God.”
