KUALA LUMPUR: Comedian and actor Ali Puteh’s worst nightmare came true today when his newborn baby girl breathed her last breath several hours ago.
The brother of popular comedian Abam Bocey, whose real name is Syed Ali Mubarak Syed Mohd Ridzuan, posted the sad news on his Instagram account.
Part of it read: “Just to inform everyone that my child Sharifah Nur Ainul Mardhiah has returned to her Maker. Sleep and rest sayang. Heaven is where you belong.”
The tragic entry garnered close to 6,000 comments from Netizens, including fellow celebrities such as Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza, Jihan Muse and Afdlin Shauki, who expressed their sadness and condolences.
Ali, a Maharaja Lawak Mega 2016 alumni, later posted another message to inform the public that his daughter’s remains would be buried after Asar prayers at the Sg Pusu cemetery in Gombak.
According to news reports, Sharifah Nur, who was born on Aug 2, suffered from a hole in her heart and problems with the heart’s valves.
She underwent a 12-hour operation about two weeks ago which resulted in her being fully dependent on the life support machine in order for her to breathe properly.
Unfortunately, she also developed post-surgery complications leading to blood flooding her lungs.
Ali and his wife, Melati Fitri Abdullah, have another child, Sharifah Nur Aaira Qaireen, 2.
