An Open Letter to Principal Tiara
Assalamualaikum Principal Tiara
We, Fans and Friends of Hafiz would like to express our deepest frustrations and our dissatisfaction on the song selected for our dear Hafiz this week ie a long winding hip hop rap song Kau Punya Aku by Malique featuring Najwa. We watched the diary tonight and we noticed that even you, PRINCIPAL TIARA is unsure who Najwa is! How come? tsk tsk tsk looks like someone is not doing her homework ~~
Have you even listened to that song? The whole song? Dont you take part in the selection of songs for your students or you just leave that job to someone else. Principal Tiara, Malique the professional hip hop rapper sounded like he was READING from a script in that song with just 1 single note. wawawawa ... So with that, what are your expectations from Hafiz? What more can an amateur student like Hafiz do to improvise that song to make it better?! What I am trying to tell you here is even though this is a good song :: IT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR A COMPETITION.
Have you ever gone through the list of songs that has been sung by the individual students? Have you even noticed that HAFIZ had been getting songs that are just TOO OLD for him? The only song that was hip and current was his 1st song which was also HIS CHOICE, Lagu Kita. He performed excellently. Juries were impressed, audience applauded, even you enjoyed and was proud of his performance and you even awarded him the Pelajar Cemerlang award that 1st week, remember?
Tonight's diary showed you commenting on Hafiz saying that this was not his best performance. He could do better than that. OF COURSE HE COULD DO 10 TIMES BETTER THAN THAT IF YOU COULD ONLY GIVE HIM A FAIR CHANCE, A GOOD SONG LIKE YOU HAVE ASSIGNED TO THE OTHER STUDENTS.
Do you actually think that this hip hop song is a challenge for Hafiz' s vocal? Haven't you been listening to the comments made by the juries? A MORE CHALLENGING SONG FOR HAFIZ! Or are the juries to be ignored. Just accessories to beautify the Dewan? So which part of the song, to your professional knowledge, Principal, is the real deal that could challenge Hafiz' vocal?
Principal Tiara, this is not helping Hafiz at all. Back to the recent bout of favouritism and biasness in the academy, its slowly revealing the fact that it is true, isn't it? Instead of helping Hafiz to menuju puncak, it seems that the academy is trying to push Hafiz down with all these songs!
Hafiz' Fans and Friends sound like we are forever complaining, displeasure about this and that. Do you receive complaints and whines from other fans, Principal Tiara?
If you do, aren't you going to attend to the complaints and try to rectify the problems?
If you don't, doesn't it show that only Hafiz had been treated unfairly thus the complaints?
We all know its impossible to make everyone happy! This is not so much about being happy or self satisfaction or craving for special treatment. Hafiz is not desperate for love and affection in the academy. This is all about being fair! Never mind the minimal airtime for Hafiz, never mind the teachers' sour faces when Hafiz receives positive comments from juries, its OK that he doesn't receive the best student award anymore, these do not affect his votes.
Principal Tiara, we appreciate that the academy acknowledged Hafiz as a versatile singer. For 6 weeks, he has proven that whatever songs of whatever genre that was slapped on to him, he managed to deliver well even though he struggled a bit during the last concert. After 6 weeks, dont you think its time to give him a break, Principal? Don't you think he has given enough and worked hard enough to prove that he truly is a versatile entertainer? Don't you realise that he had been struggling so hard trying to make the best out of some unheard of songs which made even the original singer proud?
We were so happy to hear that AF7 is being headed by a lady. Not any other lady but you, Tiara Jacquelina. Personally, I had always looked up to you as a very intelligent and sophisticated lady. We thought you could bring changes and transform the traditional ways of twisting the drama to sway votes to something more intelligent ... and we are still waiting.
All we ask for is, if you could give a popular current hit song to a student whose voice you know suits the song perfectly well, could you also give Hafiz that chance too? He deserves a good song too don't you think so? I believe its not too late to change his song this week. Could you please look into it, Principal? If the other students can get a song of their preference by their idol singer, so can Hafiz right?

okay, here it goes...
macam yang i cakap sebelum nih, come what may, hafiz will do his level best to perform this song... lagu hip hop nih bukan satu lagu yang mudah untuk dipersembahkan apatah lagih lagu sebegini bukan forte hafiz... tapi kalau bukan hafiz yang diberikan cabaran hebat sebegini, siapa lagih yang lebih layak? do you really think other students will be able to carry this task? that is my question... for me, hafiz is the only person yang berada di satu peringkat yang lebih tinggi dari pelajar-pelajar lain untuk diberi cabaran sebegini... semua orang tahu kelebihan vokal hafiz... semua orang tahu keupayaan hafiz menyanyikan lagu ballad seperti lagu kita dan lagu terlanjur cinta... semua orang tahu hafiz mampu menyanyi dan menari dengan penuh conviction untuk lagu mat disko... so, apa lagih yang nak diuji untuk hafiz kalau tidak lagu-lagu yang bukan menjadi makanan dia ataupun mana-mana pelajar lain sekalipun... lagu hip hop, lagu melayu tradisional, lagu dangdut atau apa sajer yang mereka fikir akan mencabar keupayaan hafiz, harus diberikan pada hafiz supaya ianya dapat membuka lebih banyak mata tentang betapa versatile nyer seorang penghibur bernama hafiz...
walaupun principal tiara cakap last week was not hafiz's personal best, tapi we all know that yang bukan personal best hafiz tuh was way better (way, way better) than anyone elses' personal best... tuh baru nyanyi lagu rock tuh... muhahaha... i sendiri yakin that bila keluar nanti hafiz takkan buat lagu rock yang macam tuh... tapi itulah cabaran sebenar yang kita tak nampak... sekali lagih i nak urge semua peminat hafiz untuk melihat perkara nih lebih daripada lagu-lagu best pada pelajar-pelajar lain dan lagu-lagu tak best pada hafiz... it was more than that... we have to dig deeper.. kita kena kupas benda nih betul-betul dan jangan lihat pada surface sahaja... masa i dengar that hafiz dapat lagu kau yang punya, lagu malique featuring najwa, i jugak terfikir kat diri sendiri, hhmmmm lagu hip hop... lagu yang lebih bercakap dari menyanyi... honestly, hati rasa panas jugak sikit... ya lah kan, bila fikiran kita diganggu dengan kelebihan lagu-lagu yang pelajar lain dapat, sikit sebanyak kita akan terpengaruh... tapi bila i tutup mata dan hanya tumpukan kepada hafiz sahaja, i realised that cabaran untuk lagu nih sungguh besar... nih lah yang i think hafiz perlukan sebagai seorang penghibur yang sudah berada di satu tahap yang tersendiri...
mungkin perkara pokok di sinih is that lagu nih bukan lagu yang kita sendiri suka (sebagai peminat hafiz)... most of us peminat hafiz nih terdiri daripada golongan pekerja (yang i nampaklah) yang sukakan lagu easy listening, lagu yang ada attitude, lagu popular masa kini, lagu yang kita boleh sing along... that sort of songs... but trust me, lagu kau yang punya bukanlah calang-calang lagu... lagu nih sangat popular di radio... maybe we are not the target listeners tapi nihlah yang menjadi kelebihan kepada hafiz... youngsters yang minat dengan lagu seperti nih akan melihat kelebihan dan keupayaan hafiz menyampaikan lagu-lagu hip hop sebeginih... hopefully they too will see how versatile seorang penghibur bernama hafiz dan they too will start to afundi hafiz... seriouly, i taknak hafiz jadik macam pelajar yang hanya ada seratus orang pengundi yang hantar berpuluh ribu afundi... i nak hafiz ada berpuluh ribu pengundi yang kalau setiap seorang hantar satu afundi pun tak mengapa... kerana bila hafiz keluar nanti, berpuluh ribu nih akan menanti, bukan hanya seratus orang...
i'm trying to see all these from a different perspectives... i tak mahu ketidakpuasan hati kita menjadi penghalang untuk hafiz melangkah ke final... i want hafiz to convince more people to afundi him... i nak lebih ramai iktiraf hafiz sebagai penghibur... i dah mulakan sejak konsert keenam... i dah declare hafiz sebagai penghibur... he has exceed my expectation... far exceeded my expectation... so, alexander and the rest, i know you are frustrated, tapi jangan biarkan perasaan tuh terus menghantui diri kita... jangan biarkan hasutan orang membakar perasaan kita... jangan biarkan diri kita hanyut dalam dakyah busuk... we are stronger than that... we have to be strong for hafiz... we have to stick together... we have to keep voting for hafiz... afundi10 hafiz dan hantar ke 32999
