This 18 year old, beautiful lass from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah finally emerged as the winner of Astro Reality Show, Akademi Fantasia 6. She is none other than Stracie Angie Anam or just Stacy. The final concert was held last night, Saturday, May 24, 2008 at Stadium Bukit Jalil.
Stacy performed two numbers by which one of the songs was especially composed for her entitled Aku Stacy. The other song is Atas Nama Cinta (original song by Rossa). Stacy beat other four finalists Riz, Nubhan, Toi and Nadia.
She bags more than RM700,000 worth of prizes which include a bungalow house at A’Famosa Villa D’Lagos, Melaka, holiday packages to South Africa, a Peugeot 307XS car, RM25,000 and a trophy.
The first and second runner-ups are Riz (Mohammed Idris Bin Mohd. Zaizizi) and Nubhan (Ahmad Nubhan Bin Ahmad) respectively. The fourth place went to Toi (Khairul Nizam Bin Baharom) and Nadia (Nadia Haswani Binti Hasnan) at the 5th place.
Congratulations to Stacy. Being Sabahan myself, I am proud to see such a talented singer like you. Your achievement made Sabah very proud. Your performance has been consistent throughout the 10 concerts and you truly deserved what you have got. Good luck and Kotobian Tadau Tagazo do Kaamatan.
Truly Kadayan/Kedayan by birth. Residing in Subang Jaya, Selangor D.E. since 1988 until now.
I was born in the Colony of North Borneo, now called Sabah (Land Below the Wind). It was still the British rule then, and we used to sing "God Save the Queen" at the school assembly in early sixties. On 16 September, 1963, the Colony of North Borneo gained its independence through the formation of Malaysia.
I spent most of my childhood days in a remote village, where basic utilities such as roads, water, electricity and telephones were not known to the village folks.
My childhood days were very challenging, simply because our living condition was just at the lowest level of Maslow Hierarchy of Needs.
