Dato’ Seri Aliff Syukri is back with another controversy! If you recall, the wealthy entrepreneur hinted at releasing another single, this time alongside a popular female artiste, just a couple of weeks ago.
Yesterday (Wednesday, 10th August), Aliff took to his Instagram to share a teaser clip of his new song called “Baby Sayang”. Not only that, he also revealed his former foe Baby Shima as his duet partner. Unsurprisingly, the video featuring the duo has in turn rubbed many people the wrong way.
“The number 1 singer coming through. Is there anyone here who’s excited to hear the voice of Malaysia’s number 1 singer? The concept of the music video is K-pop, and will beat the likes of BTS and BLACKPINK. Stay tuned,” the cosmetics tycoon captioned his post. In the video posted on his socials, Baby Shima is also seen dancing suggestively right next to Aliff.
The post was met with massive backlash from local netizens. Most of them blasted both Aliff and Shima for not learning from their previous controversies. This has also prompted the former’s mom, Bonda Rozita Ibrahim and Muslim preacher PU Syed to call the D’Herbs company owner out.
Bonda Rozita was spotted leaving a comment on the controversial post. “I hate this. Please stop bringing in catastrophe. You’ve been involved with a lot of dramas, from one to another. Rest assured, Kri (Aliff), when it comes to business you don’t need an artiste’s help in order to make it. You don’t have to dance provocatively to earn a living,” the businesswoman reprimanded her son.
Meanwhile, PU Syed took to his Instagram to call for Aliff to rescind his plan to launch the upcoming music video for his new song with the dangdut singer. “Imagine your kids, your wife, and even your mom’s reaction after seeing what you did in the video? What do you want to reveal to the community?” the religious figure revealed in his video. “You have a name and a title, please think before committing things that will bring the wrath of God.”
After facing tons of criticisms online, Aliff has disabled the comments section on the aforementioned post.
