‘KABAB’, a Malaysian singer-songwriter and pop star, has described his life in the Indian Ocean as “like a nightmare”.
“There’s no place to sleep, no food, no water, no electricity, nothing.
The only thing I have is a suitcase and a bottle of water,” he said.”
When I wake up, I’m alone.
And I have a suitcase full of clothes that I can’t wash and a backpack that I’m carrying in my hand.””
If you think about the fact that I am an immigrant, I think that if you think of my name, I have nothing,” he added.’
