A MALAY teenage girl has become an Internet sensation following her Chinese rendition of Si Le Dou Yao Ai (Still Love Even After Death), reported China Press.
Siti Nur Masyitah Mohd Yusoff (pic), better known as Masyitah Masya, blew away netizens with her powerful vocals in the song made popular by the now disbanded Taiwanese rock band Shin.
The video has been shared 25,869 times as of Monday after it was uploaded on Facebook on Oct 5. It has been viewed 871,000 times and generated 24,000 likes.
The 17-year-old, the champion of 2014 Ceria Popstar (a children’s singing competition) and 2016 Pesta Singing Contest winner, said she hoped to become a professional singer.
“I want to improve my Mandarin and hope to perform in China one day,” she was quoted by the daily.
Masyitah has taken part in hundreds of singing contests from a young age.
Following the rave reviews, Masyitah, who studied in a Chinese primary school, said several local recording companies – some from Taiwan – have been in touch with her.
> The daily also reported that Hong Kong actress Myolie Wu, who delivered baby boy Brendan Lee recently, shared her breastfeeding experience over social media.
“After delivering, the second challenge is breastfeeding. The baby needs to be fed every two to three hours.
“I believe all new mothers are worried that their breast milk is not enough for their babies. No words can describe the pressure and feeling,” she posted.
Wu said she is grateful that the nurse and confinement lady helped with a massage when her breasts became engorged.
“It was painful. But it is worthwhile when you see the breast milk for your baby. To all new mothers, don’t give up easily. Let’s work hard together,” she wrote.
