KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman is proud that he can finally take his mother to watch Swedish-Lebanese artist Maher Zain in concert.

“I wanted to take her when he first came to Malaysia a few years ago as a birthday present, but I wasn't able to do so then because there were troubling times for me,” he said when attending a press conference for the Maher Zain Malaysia Tour 2019 on Wednesday (Jan 9).

“Knowing that Maher will be performing at not just one, but four different locations (in March) means that I can finally fulfil my dream of bringing my mother to watch him perform live,” he added.

The Muar MP described Maher as a humanitarian whose songs have inspired many Muslims to be compassionate and loving.

“I hope this message will be sent out across Malaysia through the tour. I also hope to see Muslims and non-Muslims attending the concert,” he added.

For the first time ever, the R&B singer will be performing in four different locations in Malaysia - Axiata Arena, Kuala Lumpur (March 9); Pasir Gudang Stadium, Johor (March 15); SPICE Arena, Penang (March 16); and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah (March 17).

The tour is being presented by CIMB Islamic Bank Bhd and organised by New Catalysts Resources and MyEvents International, with Bernama and Sinar Harian as the official media partners.
