KUALA LUMPUR: Unhappy for not given any room to speak at the press conference for Astro’s upcoming reality singing competition Gegar Vaganza Season 4, cosmetics tycoon Datuk Seri Hasmiza Othman, took to her Instagram to air her grouses.
The public figure who is fondly known as Datuk Seri Vida or DSV for short, uploaded five Insta videos on her Instagram expressing her disappointment with Astro’s management for not alloting a time slot for her to address those invited at the event, held at The Gardens Theatre, Mid Valley City here yesterday.
In one of the videos, she was said: “Punyalah gigih saya beli segala...Jahit baju khas...Bag sgalo...Untuk pakai cantik hari ni...Tapi sbutir pun tak sebut nama saya.. sebagai MAIN SPONSOR.. berjuta. Takpela saya tak cakap banyak pun. Tak bagi peluang pun saya cakap. Bukan Ketagih nak cakap. Tapi saya perlu cakap..Demi produk yg saya dagangkan..Pamoga Qu Puteh? Salah ke? Skurangnya sikit jerr...Huhh. Sakit hati.”
(The efforts I took to specially custom-made my outfit, paired it with matching handbag so that I look beautifully made up to attend this event, but not even once did they mentioned me as the main sponsor for the reality show. The sponsorship amounts up to millions of ringgit. It’s not like I’d hog the microphone, but I still need to promote my products such as Pamoga and Qu Puteh. Is it so wrong for me to do that? It won’t take long. How disappointing.)
Dressed in a silver-grey coloured ensemble and a silver Chanel handbag, Vida did not however come to the event donning her signature tiara.
According to sources, Astro refused to make any statement until they have discussed the matter with Vida on why she had uploaded the videos on her IG in the first place.
Gegar Vaganza Season 4’s first concert is on Oct 29, while with snippets on training sessions, preparation and such to be aired on a short special segment called Kapsul Gegar Vaganza will begin on Oct 16 on Astro Ria (channel 104) and Astro Ria HD (channel 123).
