Throughout this prolonged MCO period, it’s evident that a lot of Malaysians are getting more and more creative in their own various ways. Among those who managed to catch the attention of the public include this TikToker/IG user known as @azmannaim44mantra (real name Azman Naim).
After becoming viral for his Hari Raya-themed parody song last year, the 36-year-old recently dropped a new song titled “My Sejahtera Way” (a cover of Frank Sinatra’s hit “My Way”). Interestingly enough, this person also caught the eyes of the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar and also Tunku Mahkota Johor, Tunku Ismail Idris!
In a post uploaded by TMJ on his Instagram Story, the Johor Prince revealed that he has been ordered by his father, the Johor Sultan, to find the owner of the social media account. “Does anyone know this man? Where can I find him? His Royal Highness had asked me to look for him. First class. Legend,” TMJ remarked. Not only that, TMJ even reposted the full clip of the song on his official Instagram.
Upon realising that he’s currently being sought by the royal family, Azman then took to his Facebook page to share his reaction to the post shared by the founder of the Johor Darul Ta’zim football club. He responded by thanking both His Royal Highness Sultan Ibrahim as well as the Crown Prince of Johor for showing their love to his recent song cover.
For the uninitiated, Azman’s uniqueness and creativity has been the talk of the town among local netizens ever since the beginning of the MCO period. This is because the lyrics used by him in most of his songs are, more often than not, relatable with the current issues happening in our country.
Up till this day, the father to two is still active in coming up with song covers and parodies on his social media pages.
