Recently, a controversial picture of Nor Ashima Ramli, or better yet known as Baby Shima, went viral over social media. She was seen kissing a man in a suit at one of the nightclubs in Kuala Lumpur. It not only caused an uproar among netizens because she was drinking in a nightclub, but also because she was kissing another man despite being married.
The Malaysian Dangdut singer came forward regarding the controversy, explaining her side of the story. In one of her recent interviews, she tried avoiding the question but due to the countless hate comments left about the photo, she posted an explanation video on her Instagram account last night. Who can blame her for caving in?
She started off with an apology regarding the picture and explained how the picture was leaked to “taint Shima’s name, bring Shima down, and embarrass Shima so that people will hate on Shima more.” On the verge of tears, she told the public that she has read all the comments left under the picture. She expressed her disappointment towards netizens for jumping into conclusion.
Some of the hate comments that were thrown towards her were, “lol, so arrogant. When people start boycotting, then you’ll come begging for forgiveness. There are tons of artistes out there who were outspoken, but throws a fit when people won’t watch them on the television. Haa, then they’ll use the depression card”.
A couple of other comments called her bitchy and a party girl; “You’re too much of a bitch that people are disgusted. Chew on that. I pity your parents, they have to see their daughter act like this. You stray too far from God, you chase the world too much”, and “this is no news, she goes clubbing with rich men a lot. It’s not a new thing, this is the real Baby Shima.”
However, she did explain in the video that the pictures were taken during a shooting for her latest music video that was released a few hours ago, “Lalai”. The music video starred Baby Shima herself, James Ng (a local entrepreneur), and Ammar Nazhan (a popular Malaysian TikToker).
Curious what the scene was all about? Here, take a look at it for yourself.
We have a theory that this might just be another scandal that was made on purpose to promote her new music video. After all, bad publicity is still publicity right?
