MELAKA (BERNAMA) – The dedication of legendary rocker Amy Search (Bernama pic; below) to entertainment for almost 42 years has been recognised with a Datukship.
The 64-year-old singer received the title in conjunction with the 73rd birthday celebration of the Yang di-Pertua Negeri of Melaka, Tun Mohd Ali Mohd Rustam, yesterday.
It is even more meaningful as Amy whose real name is Suhaimi Abdul Rahman, 64, is the only artiste to receive the honour at the investiture ceremony held at the Balai Istiadat Seri Negeri, Ayer Keroh.
“Alhamdulillah, for the award from TYT Tun Ali Mohd Rustam and the Melaka government.
It is the most beautiful gift, something I have never dreamed of all my life,” he said when met after the presentation of honours and awards to the recipients.
