Noh Salleh receives backlash for holding a cigarette on his KLFW walk
Malaysian singer-songwriter Noh Salleh has received backlash on social media for carrying an unlit cigarette while out for a walk during the recent Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week.
In the video which has gone viral online, the Hujan frontman was seen walking for streetwear brand Super Sunday – with whom he has formed a collaboration for his own label Hikari Riders – with a cigarette in hand.
Social media users were quick to react to the entertainer’s stunt, calling him “filling” and blaming his divorce from fashion designer Mizz Nina for his actions, among a slew of other comments, per Juice online.
While Salleh has been the target of hate, other models under Super Sunday are also said to have held cigarettes as they strolled the runway.
Ahead of his Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week appearance, the singer joined the lineup of Malaysia’s independent Atas Angin festival on August 6. He has performed alongside other local artists like No Good, Sekumpulan Orang Gila and Herri Hamid from Bittersweet.
In the meantime, he will stage the joint concert 3 generalities with rock icons XPDC and Spider to celebrate three decades of local music. Taking place on August 27 at the Zepp KL Concert Hall, the showcase is expected to be a “unique, relaxed and informal experience,” according to YOLO Asia founder Ib Harun.
