“After Covid-19, my breathing was short. It was difficult to sing, let alone shout. “

Sit also said she was grateful to the fans who had turned up for her concert which was to raise funds for the Nurjiwa Foundation, which she founded with her husband, Datuk Seri Khalid Mohamad Jiwa.

She performed 18 songs that included a duet with singer, Datuk Awie.

Meanwhile, in an Instastory, Siti revealed that her mother Siti Salmah Bachik, 70 had been infected with the Covid-19 virus.

“She has body aches, a mild cough.”

In another post, she wrote that her mother sounded cheerful and thanked everyone for praying for her mother.

She also said in light of the rising cases, she called on fans to carry out self-testing before coming for her concert tonight.
