They were announced the winner of the MeleTOP Couple award at last last night’s Anugerah MeleTOP ERA (AME) 2019, but celebrity couple Nur Fazura Sharifuddin and Fattah Amin were not present to receive it.
Instead, the award was received by the couple’s representative.
A Netizen who claims to be Fattzura’s fan aired her frustration on the actress’ Instagram:
“This is very unprofessional of you and Fattah. We fans work so hard to make sure you win this award. You should have come to receive the award. I am so disappointed with you guys.”
Meanwhile, among Netizens’ criticisms hurled at them on MeleTOP Instagram account include this:
“It’s a real pity for their fans who had foolishly taken the trouble to vote and support them, but they won’t even show up.
“How unprofessional. Next year, there’s no need to nominate them, just nominate other artistes who really deserve this award. What rubbish!”
Another suggested for the organiser to withdraw the win because of their no-show.
However, on the other side of the camp, fans were quick to defend. One wrote:
“…if you are a ‘genuine’ fan who supports them without any intention, you should understand their situation better than anyone.
“By saying ‘we fans work so hard’ sorry honey you didn’t represent any Fattzura fans at all.
“Whether Fattzura attends or not, it’s none of our business. Just because they didn’t attend the event, it doesn’t mean they do not appreciate their fans.
“If you know both of them better, you won’t say things like this and as genuine fans, we appreciate them for what they are. We dont judge them…”
Meanwhile, when met the channel’s manager Raqim Ahmad Ramli after the awards show, he said,
“We didn’t receive explanation from them (Fazura and Fattah) for their inability to turn up tonight, but I believe they may have some other engagement which clashed with ours.”
Some speculated that the no-show by the couple was due to the recent fiasco at the Malaysia Film Festival (FFM 30) awards show, while other said that it was perhaps due to the fact that Fazura was in mourning for an aunt’s passing.
