KUALA LUMPUR: Singer A.M. Salim Abdul Majeed (pix), or better known as Saleem Iklim, died at 6 am today while receiving treatment at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre, here.
He was 57.
The death of the vocalist of Iklim, the rock band famous in the 1990s, was verified by his daughter, Iera Fakhira, when contacted by Bernama.
“The remains will be taken to Surau As-Syakirin in Bukit Mahkota, Cheras for funeral prayers before being laid to rest at the nearby Muslim cemetery after the Zohor prayer,” she said.
Saleem, most popular for the song titled Suci Dalam Debu, was admitted to the medical centre following an accident on Sept 20, during which he suffered rib injuries.
“My father was discharged from the hospital before but was readmitted when his condition worsened,” Iera Fakhira said. — Bernama
