When I saw this boy sang on TV9’s Idola Kecil, I imagined what it would have been like if I had been discovered as a singer earlier in life. I started singing at 17, yes, but my first album came out when I was 26. That’s a little late in pop years. One fonecall and he’s in the studio with me. In this song called ‘Perjalanan’, I sang with my signature Melayu lenggok three-four waltz ditty, but paired with extreme auto-tuning ala T-Pain. My character sings in past tense and Afiq sings in future tense as my young self. We meet in a mirror. The song is written by Azalea, whom I’ve been a big fan of ever since I heard her in Anuar Zain’s hits.

The video above, ironically, is of the boy singing my father’s composition, ‘Terharu’.
