“Gegar Vaganza” is an annual Malaysian reality singing competition that features regional veteran singers who have stepped away from the limelight.

Two winners announced

However, Hady wasn’t the only winner.

He shared the top spot with Malaysian singer Naqiu Boboy.

Berita Mediacorp reported that it was the first time in the history of the show that two winners were announced.

Malaysian satellite television provider Astro explained that both singers scored the same points on their final performances and thus, it was only fair to hand the victory to both of them.

Viewers left confused

Despite this, the results still seem to have left viewers confused and disappointed.

Some felt like it wasn’t right to have two winners.
