Local TV personality Izwan Azir Saleh took to his Twitter recently to call for the public and also for the media to stop wasting their time focusing on the longstanding drama involving Dato’ Seri Vida and her younger beau, Iqbal Zulkefli.
In a series of statements posted on his social media, Izwan claimed that the story between the couple does not bring any benefits to anyone, instead it only brings negative effects to the people’s thinking.
“To those who are easily amused by the rubbish stories featuring those two individuals (DS Vida and Iqbal), please know that, whether both of them end up getting married or not, or whether he will make a song with Caprice of Floor 88, they aren’t bringing food to our tables,” the 40-year-old expressed.
“They also don’t cover our bank debts. Both of them benefit a lot from the traffic (coverage), and what do we get out of this? All of us are going backwards instead,” the Buletin FM announcer added in his Twitter post.
Here’s his full statement:
Speaking of the couple, DS Vida uploaded a 13-minute long IGTV video which shed some more light on her “heated confrontation” with Iqbal this past weekend. According to the entrepreneur, she was shocked after discovering that Iqbal had embarrassed her on social media. She later revealed that when she was at his house, she and a few other individuals (including her staff and children) were treated nicely.
That being said, the “I Am Me” songstress later claimed that the opposite happened after all of them returned home. On top of that, DS Vida even called her beau out for apparently twisting his words regarding her surprise visit to his residence!
“I’ve been staying silent all this while. I know my intention, for the sake of God. But why are you intimidated by the real story? Are you afraid of the truth? Why did you go and do things to humiliate me?” she added in the clip.
DS Vida continued by saying, “You already got what you wanted, right? You’ve gained more followers, people are already familiar with you. Even media outlets like to cover your story. At that time, I didn’t want to record a video of my visit to your house. But you twisted your statement, saying that I insisted on making a video or else a big fight would follow suit.”
“My God, I’m really upset. I’m still okay with netizens criticising and putting me on blast, but you were the one who slandered me and insulted me. Logically thinking, I cannot accept all your excuses, unless you consider yourself as someone similar to ‘Si Tanggang (The Ungrateful Son)’,” the 50-year-old business magnate was quoted as saying.
At the same time, the QU Puteh owner also urged Iqbal to explain the real situation, particularly regarding his previous accusation that she had knocked on his door at 3 in the morning. Seemingly displeased by her former employee’s action, she ended her long post by praying for him to go back to his roots.

The whole fiasco involving these two public figures is surely getting out of hand. What will happen next? Only time will tell.
