Forever proud to be Anak Malaysia


dR Sam started off as a busker in the early 1973 when he studied A-Levels at the Waltam Forest Technical College, England.

HE CREATED a phenomenon with Saya Anak Malaysia, which became synonymous with National Day and Malaysia Day celebrations – a song still played to this day.

Salim Ibrahim or dR Sam Rasputin, as he is popularly known, popularised and co-wrote the patriotic song with singer/composer Datuk M. Nasir in 1986.
