This is the first major AIM victory bagged by a reality TV show talent.

Who else but Siti.
Who else but Siti.


THE 15th Anugerah Industri Muzik, the country’s most prestigious music awards event, is back! Once again, beloved songstress Datuk Siti Nurhaliza grabbed the limelight with five nominations.

But three newcomers — Karen Kong, Faizal Tahir and Estranged, nominees for the Best New Artiste award — are making waves.

Soul/R&B singer Kong is getting a lot of attention with her single Cinta Hello Kitty, a sappy, catchy ballad taken from her debut album, Mulakan.

Her soaring vocals, quite marvellous for a relatively young singer, have stirred considerable interest from certain quarters in the music industry over the past few months. Making her debut nomination at this year’s AIM, she is up for Best Vocal Performance in an Album (Female) award.

Faizal, a product of 8TV’s One In A Million who recently caused a brouhaha by baring his chest on TV, is back with a new lease of life, so to speak. The host of TV3’s Gangstarz has garnered a few nominations, including for Best Vocal Performance in an Album (Male) and Best Song (for his first single Mahakarya Cinta) categories.
Estranged, which has been the toast of the music industry with the self-penned track Itu Kamu, may just spring another surprise. The guys who bagged the top award at this year’s Anugerah Juara Lagu for the rock-tinged song were also named Most Popular Group/Duo at the eighth edition of Anugerah Planet Muzik.

For AIM, Estranged is also in the running for the Best Song award.

Atilia and Kaer Azmi are the other nominees in the Best New Artiste category. That aside, looking at the list of nominees at this prestigious music awards ceremony to be held at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur this Saturday, you’d know that it’s going to be an exciting affair.

There may be many “gripping moments” or “elements of suspense” as the list of nominees really does have that “stiff competition” tag.

What’s interesting is that this year’s nominees are a nice mix of both new and old acts, a positive development in the industry.

• HERE are more AIM updates. As it is into its 15th year, the producers have promised to introduce fresh elements into the presentation. For starters, the performances will be divided into various segments, including Warisan and Tribute.

There will be performances by the creme de la creme of the music industry, including Siti Nurhaliza, Anuar Zain, Atilia, Dafi, Dayang Nurfaizah, Estranged, Faizal Tahir, Fiq (Mentor), Hazami, Karen Kong, Mawi, Pop Shuvit, Rahim Maarof and Suki.

The performers will be backed by a combo led by popular composer Aubrey Suwito.

According to Persatuan Akademi Anugerah Industri Muzik Malaysia (PAIMM) general manager Jennifer Thompson, AIM15 promotes racial harmony, as reflected in the nominees and performers’ lists.

The list of presenters also boasts an interesting mix of Malay and non-Malay celebrities. They include Alif Aziz, Anne (of Hot.FM), Ben (Fly.FM), Daniel Lee, Datin Julie Sudiro, Diddy, Fazley, Elyana, Farawahida, Kartini (Hot.FM), Pete Teo, Sean Ghazi, Shebby Singh and Sohaimi Mior Hassan.

This year’s event will also see the return of the award-winning actor-producer-singer Afdlin Shauki as the host. He is accompanied by sensational singer and actress Adibah Noor.

AIM15 will also feature a pre-event blue carpet ceremony which will be aired “live” over ntv7 at 9pm.

• SITI Nurhaliza’s Menanti Pasti — the waltz-influenced track taken from Kayangan, The Soundtrack — is a force to be reckoned with. The tune about everlasting love and devotion has been nominated for Best Song at the awards ceremony.

The track is written by Harian Metro journalist-turned-lyricist Abie Abdullah. Award-winning composer and singer Ajai also lent his expertise to infuse the lyrics with a unique melody.

According to Kayangan executive producer Adit Rahim of Raden Pictures Sdn Bhd, he is thrilled to have collaborated with Siti on the project.

He added that Siti’s vocal prowess is clearly discernible in this tune. Apart from that, Siti is also a nominee in the categories for Best Vocal Performance in An Album (Female), Best Album Cover, Best Pop Album, Best Music Arrangement in a Song and Best Song.

• As preparations for AIM15 are getting underway, producers are apparently at loggerheads when it comes to the selection of the performers for the evening. Two veteran male artistes were dropped from the preliminary performers’ list.

Originally slated to perform in the Tribute segment, they were replaced by others as the producers feared a “no-show”.

The witty hosts and delightful performances by the artistes of Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian overshadow the surprises in certain award categories, writes DENNIS CHUA.

M. Nasir won the Special Lifetime Achievement Award.
M. Nasir won the Special Lifetime Achievement Award.

HAVING seen pop phenomenon Asmawi “Mawi” Ani win Most Popular Artiste award ever since he became a celebrity, followers of the annual Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian (ABPBH) in Genting Highlands could be forgiven for calling this year’s results a foregone conclusion.

True, Mawi bagged the above title for the third consecutive year, and won himself an RM185,000 Peugeot 407 and RM150,000-worth of jewellery from Habib Jewels, among others.

Garnering 119,268 votes from Berita Harian readers to win the grand prize, he also defended his Popular Male Artiste title which he first clinched two years ago.

But ABPBH 2007 did not revolve monotonously around the most famous resident of Felda Taib Andak in Kulai, Johor Baru, as it did in the past two years.

Just like the recent general elections, ABPBH 2007 also saw several “upsets”.

Linda Onn of Era FM ended her six-year reign as Popular Female Radio Presenter, vanquished by her chatty former protege Fara Fauzana who migrated to Hot FM two years ago.

Melodi host Fara, who also defended her Popular Female TV Host title for the third year, paid tribute to Linda as a great mentor who “showed her the ropes” during her days in Era.

Fara’s Hot FM colleague Faizal Ismail, won the Popular Male Radio Presenter, replacing Linda’s former colleague Halim Othman, who decided to take a break from showbusiness last year.

Another surprise departure was cinema’s leading man Rosyam Nor, and top funnyman, Saiful Apek, who were deprived of the Popular Film Actor award by newcomer Rusdi Ramli, best known for his convincing role as the long-suffering softie in the film Waris Jari Hantu.

Popular actress Fasha Sandha, who won Popular Film and TV Actress last year, failed to defend her small screen title, and lost it to her fellow northerner Dynas Mokhtar. Rosyam retained the Popular TV Actor award he dominated since 2004.

Berita Harian readers remained fiercely loyal to pop queen Datuk Siti Nurhaliza, nasyid kings Rabbani, “king of comedy” Saiful, “queen of comedy” Sheila Rusly and the irrepressible former “Mr Akademi Fantasia”, Aznil Nawawi.

Siti continued to reign in the Popular Female Artiste category, marking her 12th year on its “throne”, while Saiful and Sheila celebrated five years as Popular Male and Female Comedian, respectively.

The zany Aznil also celebrated five years as Popular Male Television Host, largely due to his sterling performance as the face of Malaysia’s No.1 reality talent show.

And Rabbani defended its Popular Nasyid Group title for the seventh year.

Akademi Fantasia 5 (AF5) champion Nor Syarmilla (Mila) Jirin won Most Popular Female Newcomer while her close pal and fellow AF5 graduate, Gadaffi (Dafi) Ismail won Most Popular Male Newcomer.

The cutesy duo recently lent their voices to the Bahasa Malaysia voiceover for Disney’s High School Musical 2 on Astro, playing the part of lovebirds Gabrielle and Troy respectively.

Only one award for outstanding veterans of screen and song was dished out this year and it went to “sifu” M. Nasir.

The Singapore-born composer, songwriter, actor, director and singer, who was behind the success of Mawi and many other award winners or nominees over the years, received the Special Lifetime Achievement Award.

Thanking his loved ones, fans, the media and collaborators, Nasir paid special tribute to his late friend Rosli Khamis, better known as Loloq, and received a standing ovation from the crowd gathered in the Arena of Stars.

Loloq, who penned the soulful, philosophical lyrics of most of Nasir’s hit songs, died after a long illness early this year.

The award ceremony, telecast “live” by TV3 at 9pm, was hosted once again by Raja Azura and Fauziah Ahmad Daud, or Ogy.

The duo kept the audience in stitches throughout the evening with their sassy, motor-mouthed brand of comedy which, among others, saw them spoof single, desperate women and gossipy housewives.

And as in the previous year, Azura and Ogy also enlightened viewers with interesting trivia on the awards, such as the fact that Ogy’s late father Datuk Ahmad Daud hosted the first award in 1997.

Viewers at the Arena were given additional entertainment during advertisement breaks courtesy of funnymen Zul Yahya and newly-crowned “Raja Lawak” Ahmad Nabil.

However, their jokes paled in comparison to those cracked by the naturally funny Yasin Yahya last year.

Siti led the performers for the evening with Ku Mahu, the catchy, Latin-sounding theme song for TV3 mini series Spa-Q.

Sterling performances were subsequently delivered by P. Ramlee — The Musical star, Liza Hanim, who sang Merawat Luka (the theme song from Fasha’s TV series Natasya), Bob Usop (Jangan Bersedih Lagi), Anuar Zain (Ketulusan Hati) and Raja Atilia (Mungkin).

Vocal powerhouse and heartthrob Anuar was easily the crowd-puller, who belted out his spell-binding hit song to roaring applause.

Ning Baizura, dressed in black and white and accompanied by masked men, got the crowd dancing to her environmentalist hit, Age Of Pollution, while actor Datuk Jalaluddin Hassan surprised and impressed many by singing Antonio Banderas’ hit song Beautiful Maria.

The suave host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? had “back-up dancers” in the form of winning actresses Fasha and Dynas, and newcomer Fouziah Ghous.

Up-and-coming rockers Meet Uncle Hussain also wowed the crowd with their catchy hit Lagu Untuk Mu.

Mawi performed his latest duet Doa Dalam Lagu with AF5 finalist Heliza Helmi of Terengganu. Sadly, it failed to sizzle due to the lack of chemistry between them.

The one performance which really moved the crowd was an otai (old-timers) tribute to Nasir by rockers Ella, Awie, Hattan, Amy and Ramli Sarip. The respected quintet dedicated a heartfelt Kepada Mu Kekasih to the iconic maestro.

Nasir’s acceptance speech was as moving as the tribute song.

He said: “My journey has not finished and I still have a long walk. But I’ll always remember the many wonderful souls who have inspired me along the way.”

Mawi also took the opportunity to announce that he was going steady with actress Ikin Rahmat, after a year of denying rumours that they were an item.

He said their friendship recently “graduated” into romance, but added that it was “too early” to declare her as his life partner.

IT looks like multiple award-winning singing sensation Datuk Siti Nurhaliza is reinventing herself and it entails more than just razzle-dazzle!


Her new venture will see her promoting beauty products using “halal” ingredients. The range will even bear her own name.

“Insya’allah, if everything works out, the makeup collection is slated for release sometime next year. I’m currently negotiating the business positioning of the product — the branding, the look and other aspects,” said Siti recently.

The products, she said, will contain skin-friendly natural ingredients with no chemical additives.

“For the moment, all I can say is the products will encourage women to be more adventurous. The ingredients, which include silky smooth minerals, will settle nicely on all types of skin and are suitable for women on the go,” she said.
The singer, who last appeared on RTM1’s musical variety show Zoom In … Bersama Datuk Siti Nurhaliza earlier this month, had no comment when asked if she was following in the footsteps of her good friend and singer Kris Dayanti.

She said she had always wanted to launch her own makeup range.

The High Court here today fixed April 25 the case involving a suit filed by a teenager against businessman Datuk Khalid Mohamed Jiwa alleging him of assaulting the teenager in March last year.

Judicial Commissioner Datuk Mariana Yahya fixed the date in chambers to enable both parties to prepare the relevant documents pertaining to the case.

The teenager, Muhammed Kasheef Harris Sivapatham, 18, filed the suit against Khalid, the husband of popular singer Datuk Siti Nurhaliza Taruddin, on April 13 last year, claiming that he was punched by Khalid, better know as Dr K, for no apparent reason in a house at Bukit Antarabangsa, near here.

In the suit, he is seeking a declaration that Khalid unlawfully detained him in the house between 11.30pm on March 17 and 1am the following day.

He is also seeking an injunction to stop Khalid and/or his agents from physically harming him pending trial.

Muhammed Kasheef also seeks general damages, special damages, aggravated and/or exemplary damages, interest, costs and other reliefs deemed fit by the court.
