Shuib addresses backlash against Rosyam Nor

·1-min read

2 Jun – Comedian-turned-entrepreneur Shuib recently assured that all is well between him and Rosyam Nor, following the backlash the latter received over his recent joke at the Anugerah MeleTOP ERA.

At the said awards ceremony on 29 May, Rosyam, who appeared alongside Shuib to present an award, quipped, "You're the hottest widower right now. It's been eight months. Have you found another?"

The former Sepathu member, who spoke about the issue recently, stated that he and Rosyam have known each other for a long time, even before he tied the knot with late singer Siti Sarah.

"When we saw each other before presenting the award, we spoke about Sarah. The two of them have known each other way longer, when Sarah was a child. So, I just took what he said as a little joke from someone that I have known for a long time, who is close to me and to my late wife," he said.

Shuib also added that he has no issue whatsoever with Rosyam's words.

"He is my idol in this industry as well as in the business world. Maybe to others, it didn't sit well with them and they have the right to question it. But I love Rosyam. He inspired me a lot," he said.

Shuib lost Sarah back in August last year, after the singer passed away from complications related to COVID-19 a few days after giving birth to their fourth child.
