The (AF6) Fever has Started!


Pic From Astro’s Official Page for AF6

AF6 = Akademi Fantasia, season 6, has just started, with the first concert tonight. I only realised it when it was halfway (no thanks to Nuni for mentioning it during our YM chat). But alas, Tottenham Hotspurs were playing against Portsmouth, so Aina didn’t allow me to change the channel 😦

Instead, I took a nap, to wake up just before 11pm (on hearing the AF team song πŸ™‚ ), to know that Spurs have just won by 2-0.

Honestly, I only followed season 2 and 3 seasons of AF. AF4 I followed only about 50% of the time, and AF5 came and go “just like that” to me without much notice πŸ˜‰

I still remember, when the season 2 final was aired, I was in Tokyo, and Aina was nice enough to show (using the webcam) parts of the show, especially when Linda was singing. I used to like the powerful voice of Linda’s, but eventually got fed-up with it, because most of the time Linda sang with no emotion or feeling 😦 . My other favourite of that season was Bob.

I think AF3 was one of the best, if not the best, having people like Marsha, Felix, Amelia, and of course the SMS King Mawi πŸ™‚ , I also kinda like Kaer’s unique voice πŸ™‚

I remember when I came back from an 11-day course in Seoul, as I entered the house, the repeat of the Prelude Concert of AF3 was on, and it was Mawi singing. I immediately said to Ayi, “Wow, I like that voice!”, to which Ayi said “Oh, That’s Mawi. He was not chosen”. I then said what a pity!

But as the public knows, Mawi was re-selected to join the group, and the rest was history.

I also remember when family members and friends found out I was in favour of Mawi, most of them reacted “Mawi?? Tak best lah… Felix is the choice la..”. I stuck by my choice, and was happy that Mawi actually came out the champion for the season.

Unfortunately if you ask me now, I have gotten over that “Mawi fever”. Mawi? To me, he’s just another singer with a very strong voice… I am not as fanatic as some other people, who initially loathed Mawi, but eventually idolise him to the extent of having all sorts of “Mawi paraphenelias”! For the record, Nuni never likes Mawi’s voice πŸ˜€

I wonder if AC Mizal can get out of Aznil’s shadow as the compere of the concert.. tonight I only managed to see Saida and Stanly singing and I think we should watch out for Stanly πŸ˜‰ He sang “You Raise me Up” very well tonight! AS for the others, I can’t comment since I didn’t get to see them perform.

But then again, he might just be like Shari (of AF1) and Bob (of AF2) who have the potential but overlooked by the fans..

I hope this is the first and the last time I blog about about AF6 πŸ™‚

Oh, me voting for any one of them? Nah… don’t think so. Why waste my phone credit?



  1. “For the record, Nuni never likes Mawi’s voice ”

    correction: I always tell people that he has potential. Too bad no one managed to polish his talent. He has good voice… but he CAN’T SING.

    My favourite AF singers are: Vince, Sahri, Bob & Haziq.
    I think i missed a few names here but since i can’t recall them, i guess i don’t really like them that much. πŸ˜†


  2. Yes! The AF season has started again!!

    I rasa kan, our preferences ni ada banyak persamaan. I like Mawi too. Well… not the fanatic fans’ kinda liking, but I like his voice. Very much like Jamal Abdillah (my all-time favorite) but still quite raw. He still has a long way to go before he can reach Jamal’s tone, but he’s getting there.

    Nuni, he can sing, ok. If you re called the songs that was given to him during the AF3 concerts, you’d see the range of songs that he sang, and he sang them well too. I was sceptical at first, but I think it’s true what they said, “He has that X factor” which Bob or Sahri or Vince do no have, eventhough they have powerful voices as well.

    Busymum, did you see that Mawi/Jamal/M.Nasir in concert? I did. Hee… hee… At my table was this group of Kelantanese ladies who just rushed to the front whenever Mawi performed, to get a closer look at him. They analysed him all night long, took pictures with him, and completely ignored their food & husband! Kesian… I tak ada lah sampai macam tu sekali… πŸ™‚

    Anyway, it all bogs down to preferences and of course, we have our own reasons for liking one singer to another. (eg. all my friends don’t understand why I like Jamal Abdillah, but I like him anyway! Keluar masuk Pusat Serenti pun, I still like him!)

    And Anuar Zain, of course!

    Take care, mum & daughter!


  3. Mrs N,

    Both DH and I are fans of Jamal’s and Salem’s. It’s sad that these guys were involved in drug abuse 😦
    But somehow, when it comes to Mawi, DH naik meluat.. I think it’s more of a case of OVER EXPOSURE πŸ™‚

    Anuar Zain?? :-O not my type lah… neither DH’s 😦
