Malaysian singer Azharina Azhar recently came up with a shocking revelation regarding her experience as an artiste in the local entertainment scene.
According to Azharina, back when she first started her career as a singer, she was once offered a hefty amount of money and was also promised various rewards in return. But it was clear that the person in power had ill intentions.
“Someone offered me to follow him for a coffee session. He also offered me RM500,000 just to spend the night with me. That’s the harsh reality, I had to go through all that as an artiste,” the “Elegi Sepi” hit-maker said as she spoke to Utusan Malaysia about the sex offer.
Azharina further added that as a public figure, there will be a lot of people attempting to take advantage of her. With that being said, the entertainer herself advised that one must be good in avoiding such things in a respectful manner.
Commenting further on the statement that she mentioned earlier regarding the RM500K offer, the Sabahan starlet clarified that she’s not the type of person to sacrifice her dignity for money. According to the pop star, her personal assistant will often help her deal with such absurd requests.
“But if I personally received the invitation, I will respond by saying that I’m not that type of person. Still, as an artiste, we always have to be very mindful of our actions,” Azharina shared. “As a woman, you have to be good at carrying yourself in whatever career path you’re choosing. Don’t let others take advantage of us.”
What’s even more shocking is that Azharina also revealed to the publication that she had previously heard of a situation where a fellow celebrity friend of hers had slept with a composer just so she could get her record out.
“However, I don’t know much about the incident. But I believe she (the friend) has already distanced herself from the composer,” the “Gegar Vaganza” season 3 winner was quoted as saying.
