Two days before testing positive for Covid-19, Alif Satar competed at the semi-finals of Muzik Muzik on Nov 20.

The song competition, which sees 30 songs duking it out for the top prize over three consecutive days, called off its last day of competition at the last minute after receiving news of Alif's Covid-19 diagnosis.

Fellow artistes, who competed on the same day as Alif, underwent the Covid-19 swab test soon after and documented their experience on Instagram.

They include Hael Husaini, Ismail Izzani, Syamel, Ernie Zakri, Stacy and Sherry Alhadad. They've since tested negative.

Netizens were particularly touched by the exchange between comedian Sherry, who hosted the show, and Alif after she posted a photo of herself undergoing the swab test at a drive-thru facility.

Alif wrote, "I'm sorry you have to go through this."

Sherry then replied: "Alif, this is not your fault. Please don't blame yourself."
