Latest Malaysian Heartrob

Twenty five year old Waheeda, whose real name is Norwahidah Abd Wahad, is the latest Malaysian darling. Her song 'Wassini' which is a combination of Latin as well as Arabic music with some Malay lyrics has become such a big hit in Malaysia. She hails from Johor and speaks Arabic, Mandarin, English, Malay as well as Hindi (learnt from her mother). She is of Indian, Malay, Chinese and Bugis heritage. Thats not all. She also has a degree in Business Administration.
My friend reported that conservative elders who normally frown on all types of modern music, don't mind her as the lyrics contain arabic and she wears a "tudung". Good role model, what!
