Siti Sarah’s dad, Raisuddin Hamzah, received a special surprise for his 66th birthday yesterday (Tuesday, 31st May). The seasoned singer was astounded by the presence of a woman, who looks undeniably similar to the deceased star. However, it was his genuine reaction that got the netizens bawling their eyes out.
Raisuddun’s wife, Siti Fatimah Suberi, was in charge of planning the whole ceremony. In the video posted on her socials, the Siti Sarah lookalike made a surprise appearance during the event. Sarah’s dad was left stunned after seeing the woman in person. For those who don’t know, the lady, known as Emy, has gone viral for her uncanny resemblance to the talented superstar.
According to Fatimah, or better known as Mak Der, she first took notice of Emy after a video of her singing to one of Sarah’s songs went viral on social media. “When people pointed out she looks just like the late Sarah, my husband told me that he really wanted to meet Emy in person. I did have plans on bringing him to see her, but I haven’t had the opportunity due to their tight schedules,” she revealed in her post.
At the same time, Mak Der also expressed her gratitude to Emy for accepting her offer to come to the event. She wrote, “Thank you to the family and friends who were present during Abah (Raissuddin)’s birthday. I also would like to thank Emy and her family for accepting the invitation,” the 35-year-old wrote.
At the time of writing, the video has amassed over 450k views online. Needless to say, the video itself has in turn brought tears to everyone’s eyes. Most of them felt melancholy, particularly after seeing Raisuddin and also his grandson, Uwais Al-Qarni’s reaction to meeting Emy upclose.
