The finale of “Gegar Vaganza” season 8 (GV8) took place last night (Sunday, 23rd January). Much to the dismay of some fans, Aliff Aziz was crowned the winner of the reality-singing competition.
Despite that, local netizens took to social media to express their disappointment towards the overall results. Some even argued that other finalists, namely Suki Low and Nikki Palikat, were more deserving of being the champion of the local singing show.
With the victory, the Singaporean celeb managed to bring home a cash prize of RM100,000 along with a trophy. Meanwhile, Nikki came in second, and the “One In A Million” winner came in third place, where the duo took home RM50,000 and RM20,000 cash (and a trophy) respectively.
Of course, bitter netizens wanted to vent about the final results. Many pointed out that Aliff’s victory in “GV8” doesn’t seem to be approved by Malaysian fans. On top of that, there were also some who claimed that the local TV show was completely rigged. “Obviously the show is rigged. Astro is more or less the same as Mnet; Rigged,” user @kithvrr remarked.
Another Twitter user known as @nas_addina chimed in by writing, “I can’t believe Suki and Nikki didn’t win and Aweera got last (place). This is nighttime robbery.” At the time of writing (Monday, 24th January), the two talented songbirds are still trending on social media. Read what they said here:
In related news, Aliff’s wife, Bella Astillah, has gone viral recently for her genuine reaction to her beloved spouse’s victory in “GV8”. In the video, the Sabahan singer-actress was unable to hold back her tears the moment when her hubby was announced as the top winner.
This also caught the attention of Jasmin Hamid. As reported by Murai, the seasoned actress uploaded a video capturing the tearjerking moment, accompanied with some heartwarming congratulatory message specifically for the sweet couple.
“A wife’s prayer is ‘Mustajab’ (quickly granted by God). Happy tears of a wife who is always a motivator for the husband to keep moving forward. Although at one time, many looked down on her husband because of her husband’s mistakes, but she was never discouraged and remained patient.”
The “Cukup Derita Itu” actress added by writing, “But she still gave her husband another chance to improve himself and also their marriage. This is the reward from God for her patience, sacrifice and loyalty to her beloved husband.”
All criticisms aside, we would like to congratulate Aliff for his win in “Gegar Vaganza 8”. Hopefully we can expect our favourite contestants to release some new music soon ;)
