SINGER Ashira Aziz is putting up a brave front for her husband in the face of adversity, reported Kosmo!.
Ashira, who got married to singer Bad Indigo in March this year, said she needed to be strong to support her husband, who is often hospitalised to treat gangrene on his legs due to diabetes.
“He had to bear the pain after several toes were amputated but he never showed any sadness in front of me.
“I know deep in his heart, he is depressed and often apologises for putting me in this situation, ” she said.
“As his wife, all I can do is be patient so that he can remain strong to fight the illness.”
Ashira also said her husband relies on a walking stick and has lost weight due to his illness.
> Singer Ameng Spring has responded to the controversy over the Digital Music Content Fund (DKD Muzik), reported Harian Metro.
He said he respected everyone’s opinion when commenting on the statement of a self-declared ustaz, which sparked a heated debate on the government’s decision to allocate RM6mil to DKD Muzik, which would benefit 960 local music industry players.
“Everyone’s opinion varies. There may be a handful who see others more in need than artistes, ” he said.
He added that some artistes were stressed out but not to the point of falling into poverty like those who were eligible for zakat (tithes) or the homeless.
However, Ameng said artistes are also among those who are affected by the pandemic.
“The opportunity to earn a living is quite slim because artistes need a large audience, ” he said.
