Dato’ Seri Vida couldn’t believe her eyes when she found out that singer Ashira Aziz had taken up a part time job as a dishwasher in her friend’s restaurant in Puchong. Has Ashira been struggling in making ends meet?
In an interview with mStar, the latter disclosed that there are some people who are openly against her new job, which made her feel guilty after sharing her story to the public. She previously made it clear that the decision to work at the food stall was her own, and wasn’t forced by her husband Bad Indigo due to his health condition.
Much to the chagrin of many, DS Vida also appeared to share her thoughts on Ashira’s recent revelation. She commented on mStar’s official Instagram, “That’s a pity. She’s an artiste, but she has to do dishwashing jobs, (when) there are many other job offers out there.”
In response to the public backlash, DS Vida later clarified that she didn’t intend to insult the job, however, she stressed that Ashira shouldn’t have demeaned her image as a public figure by doing such work. She revealed, “I told Ashira, ‘You’re beautiful, you shouldn’t downgrade yourself by being a dishwasher. It’s not good for her because she’s an artiste, and there are many other jobs she can do besides that.
“But she said she’s okay since she’s only helping her friend,” the Qu Puteh founder told the local portal. “There’s nothing wrong with being a dishwasher. It’s just that with her ability, skills and also her pretty face, Ashira could land herself a more suitable job.”
During the chat, DS Vida also explained that she only wants the best for the former “Gegar Vaganza” contestant. “Don’t be skeptical of my warning statement. I wasn’t insulting those who work as dishwashers. But I personally see that Ashira has a lot of potential,” she told the portal.
At the same time, the cosmetics entrepreneur also revealed that she’s currently planning to do something in an effort to ease the burden carried by both Ashira and her partner. “I have some plans in store with Ashira. But then again, people would claim that I’m taking advantage of the situation, so I refuse to reveal much on that. Let’s just wait and see.”
For the uninitiated, Ashira and Bad tied the knot in March 2021 after meeting in the seventh season of the aforementioned singing competition. It is a second marriage for both of them.
However, in July that same year, the “Andai Kau Pergi” singer revealed that he had to have his toes amputated due to diabetes.
