Last week, Malaysia’s very own king of controversy, Aliff Syukri, published an extremely flak-drawing teaser of his music video for this year’s Raya celebration via his Instagram page whereby he croons and dances alongside male dancers, all sporting sampins and tight skinsuits which netizens have compared to scuba diving gear.

The full music video was scheduled for release yesterday, but has been postponed due to a police report being lodged against him for fear that the content is offensive and demeaning to the holy month of Ramadan.

This time, Aliff responded to the criticism by posting a request for input on his flaws on Instagram, asking Malaysians to explain why he is continually singled out for condemnation. He asked his Malaysian audience to embrace him as the nation’s top singer, asserting with confidence that his voice is distinctive and likening it to the late pop singer Michael Jackson.

Aliff’s post drew responses from both supporters and detractors of his singing career, as was to be expected. Netizens focused their attention on one comment in particular, though.

Actor and businessman Wak Doyok told Aliff that while he indeed hasn’t done anything wrong, many Malaysians find it difficult to tolerate his singing voice, claiming that his voice is upsetting the devils which are meant to be shackled during Ramadan. Over 4,000 users have liked Wak Doyok’s comment, which seemed to humour many.

Aliff has not yet addressed Wak Doyok’s comments at the time of writing.

We all know it’s not the first time Aliff has received criticism for his Raya songs, and although his own mother, Rozita Ibrahim, has expressed disapproval of her son’s singing endeavours, he continues to defend himself against his critics while maintaining his confidence in his prowess as a singer.

In other news, the entrepreneur and his wife welcomed their sixth child together on Monday, a baby boy named Luqman Al-Hakim, prompting him to tell reporters that he will be focusing on his family and letting his lawyers deal with the legal repercussions of his Raya content.
