TWO renowned names in the music business† Siti Nurhaliza and Jamal Abdillah† will team up for a Mother’s Day celebration luncheon show on May 16.

Organised by Mahir Entertainment & Production (MEP) with the cooperation of D’Saji, the 2.30pm show will be held at Dewan Perdana Felda, Jalan Maktab, Off Jalan Semarak in Kuala Lumpur.

This is the second year MEP and D’Saji are organising a Mother’s Day celebration luncheon show. Last year, evergreen diva Datuk Sharifah Aini sang her chart toppers to a packed hall, comprising not only mothers, but fathers, their children and die-hard fans.

The emcee for the upcoming show who will double up as comedian is funnyman cum cross-dresser Dee.

MEP boss Normahiran Yusof said it will be the first time the multiple award-winning national diva and the legendary Jamal share the same stage to entertain and honour mothers for their selfless efforts in raising their children.

“”It will be a great treat for mothers as Siti and Jamal will sing songs related to mothers. They will also sing a few duets as well as their hits,”” added Normahiran of the one-hour plus show.

In addition, Dee will provide rib-tickling moments with his wacky humour.

Sixteen mouth-watering dishes from a menu blending the best of the east and west will be served.

As a promotional exercise to boost ticket sales, the organisers are offering 20 free tickets to winners who correctly answer a simple quiz through the Short Message System (SMS).

“”All they have to do is type IBU and send their SMS answers to 33533. The 50th SMS sender stands to win extra prizes including Siti’s latest album, a handphone, a VCD player and a TV set,”” Normahiran added. There is also a 10 per cent ticket discount for those bringing newspaper advertisements to the Mother’s Day celebration luncheon show.

“”This special discount is only eligible to the first 300 buyers before May 5 when they buy the tickets in cash from D’Saji,”” she said.

In addition, 10 winners who produce the best essays of 200 words on Kenapa Ibu Saya Adalah Ibu Mithali… will also get free tickets for this luncheon show.

“”We will only announce the best mother based on the winning essay on that day itself. Of course, there are lots of other prizes to take home too,”” she said.

Among the sponsors are Beras Faeza Taj Mahal, Unilever, GSK, PLUS and Kimberly Clark.

Tickets are priced at RM200 each for the front rows and RM180 each (centre and back rows).
