From footballer, to singer, to zero, and back again

(Updated: )

At 18, Syed Azmir achieved his childhood dream of being a professional football player when he became a full time player with the Sembawang Rangers Football Club in the S.League. But he gave all that up for a singing career after he came in second in Suria's singing competition Anugerah 2005. 

He moved to Kuala Lumpur when he was offered a full album contract - only to lose that career too, after his manager Amin Hussen was diagnosed with cancer.
