KUALA LUMPUR: Umno information chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa says that iconic singer Sheila Majid, who tweeted about the rising cost of living, was mistaken.

The Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club portal reported Annuar as saying that much of what Sheila said was not true.

"A lot of it is wrong, because this is not her field," said Annuar.
