CIK B, the daughter of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Seri Vida, posted a cheeky response to talk of her mother’s upcoming marriage, according to Kosmo!.
The 16-year-old singer retweeted a Twitter user’s comment – “Let’s hope Cik B does not have social media” – on Vida’s purported hesitation in breaking the news to her.
The retweet came with Cik B’s remark: “*Pretends to be surprised and not know anything*”.
Cik B also liked another tweet which disagreed with Vida’s decision to tie the knot, preferring that the tycoon remain single.
Kosmo! previously reported that the flamboyant celebrity had said she would be marrying Ahmad Iqbal by December this year, and was planning a “wedding of the year”. The groom-to-be is Vida’s former assistant turned entrepreneur.
It added that Vida had struggled to break the news to her children, especially Cik B.
Vida was reported to have said that she would let her children hear about her impending wedding from the media first and would take time to deal with the issue and talk to Cik B in due time.
> Director-producer Azman Yahya, better known as Jinggo, is urging the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (Finas) to take action against production houses that continue to hire unvaccinated cast members.
The owner of JS Pictures called out such attitude that does not comply with Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOP) and said this stance might pose risks to other production companies as well.
“Because of people like you, we (filmmakers) can’t resume filming!
“Finas, please arrest those who refuse to follow the SOP before our industrial facilities are withdrawn.
“We are all equally affected. JS Pictures needs to resume filming!” he posted on Instagram.
Jinggo stressed that he was not questioning people’s choices in refusing the Covid-19 vaccination because the initiative is not mandatory for individuals, adding that he had issues only with his colleagues in the film industry whose actions might cause all productions to be suspended.
