Cosmetics mogul Datuk Seri Aliff Syukri Kamarzaman’s music video for his new Raya song titled Kelepok Raya raised eyebrows and caused an uproar when it was released.
The Malay Mail reported that the controversy focused on the effeminate behaviour of the male backup dancers featured in the music video. Critics found the video inappropriate for Hari Raya and the holy month of Ramadan.
According to Harian Metro, Aliff Syukri was also criticised by his mother, entrepreneur Rozita Ibrahim.
Due to the backlash, Aliff Syukri was investigated by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (SKMM) under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
He arrived at SKMM around 9.58am yesterday, 26 April, and was questioned for nearly five hours regarding his music video.
He apologised for what he did and pleaded with the public to stop blaming his family members for his actions.
I’m asking for forgiveness from the people who are hurt my song and video. I’m very sorry. I hope the public would stop bringing my family into this especially my mother who’s currently performing her umrah. Don’t blame my wife because it’s not her fault. Don’t blame my mother because it’s not her fault too.Comsetics mogul Aliff Syukri said after being questioned by SKMM
