Despite the “annual” criticisms for his Raya songs, controversial entrepreneur Dato Aliff Syukri seems to have no idea why he is the target of online condemnation. His recent Raya song, Cak Kun Cak Raya received massive criticism for the tight Baju Melayu worn by the dancers and Aliff himself in the music video.
“What have I done?”
In his Instagram post yesterday (April 5), Aliff took the opportunity to ask fellow Malaysians about his flaws.
“What did I do wrong until everyone is criticising my Raya song? Please, Malaysians, open your eyes and ears, and listen to my voice!”
Aliff confidently said that he has a unique voice, just like the late pop singer, Michael Jackson, and he blamed Malaysians for not knowing how to value his singing voice. He also urged the Malaysian audience accept him as the country’s number 1 singer.
His confidence baffles even his own mother, Rozita Ibrahim who said that her son is not a talented singer but Aliff continues to believe that is not the case.
“I have a good voice. Full stop.”
“Even the devils are shaking”
As always (and expected), Aliff’s post manage to bring in many comments from Malaysians who support his singing career, and those who think he should put an end to his singing hobby. This time, a comment from a local entrepreneur has gained the spotlight in the comment section.
Wak Doyok, who is also an actor told Aliff that he has done nothing wrong but it’s his singing voice that many Malaysians cannot accept, including those NOT from our realms.
“Your voice is disturbing the devils who are being chained in Ramadhan. They’re shaking,” Wak Doyok commented.
For context, in Muslim belief, the devils are chained every year during Ramadhan. At the time of writing, Wak Doyok’s comment has received more than 4,000 likes and many are entertained by his “devilish” comment.
Aliff Syukri, however, did not respond to the comment. You can watch the clip below,
We wonder what would Michael Jackson think of this if he was still alive.
