In a post on her Facebook, she lamented in Mandarin, “Another superstar has fallen. I never had a chance to interview you at your concert, alas. CoCo Lee, may you rest in peace😢”.

Rasyidah further pondered, “Are those who frequently bring laughter to others genuinely happy? Perhaps they are happy in the moment of laughter, but the second when death approaches can be indescribably painful, with no way out.”

She used this moment of shared sorrow to send a beacon of hope to those grappling with depression. She expressed, “I hope those who are fighting depression will have the opportunity to find their own dawn, to give tomorrow a chance, keep going!”
