Dato Aliff Syukri is well known to be a very successful entrepreneur. His cosmetic and fashion businesses such as As Hijab, Dherbs Holdings and Sugeh Eco Resort have been doing very well over the years but there’s one area the father-of-four has yet to succeed in and that is music.
The “Badang” star has always wanted to kickstart a music career but to no avail. After making his music debut back in 2017 with Nur Sajat on the song, “Abang Nak Tegur”, the entrepreneur has yet to have a song that is well received by the public. So far, he has only relied on gimmicks and viral controversies but that simply won’t cut it. Despite all this, Aliff believes that people should appreciate his musical talents. Here’s the scoop:
Dato Aliff Syukri has definitely been in some hot water lately for multitude of reasons. The entrepreneur has released multiple viral and extremely controversial music videos as well as social media posts and it doesn’t look like he’ll stop anytime soon even after he claimed to be traumatised by the 5-hour long MCMC investigation for his heavily criticised “Kelopok Raya” music video.
Speaking at a recent press conference to address the issue of his controversial music video with Baby Shima for “Baby Sayang”, the 35-year-old believes that people should appreciate him more before he leaves this world one day. “I’m sad that the whole of Malaysia won’t accept my talents and keep criticising me. Do I have to be dead for everyone to start appreciating me?” he said.
The cosmetic business owner also added that he’s doing music for the purpose of entertaining people and that him already having almost 10 songs out should prove to everyone that he has talent. He even claimed that other Malaysian celebs or artist are not criticised for doing something far worse than him for the sake of their art.
Finally addressing the “Baby Sayang” controversy, Aliff Syukri said that he does not profit from the song or video saying that he invested RM70K of his own money for the project. “I didn’t do this song to prove myself as a singer but purely because of my passion for music”.
