Sudirman Haji Arshad, or "Sudi" to his fans, was born in Temerloh, Pahang, to Haji Arshad bin Haji Hassan and Puan Hajjah Ramlah binti Dahlan on the 25th of May 1954.
His mother was a very active woman in politics and as a Kaum Ibu (UMNO) leader, she was involved in the independence movement for then Malaya.
She is depicted in the Pahang Heroes Museum as one of the women leaders who contributed her efforts to the state and country.
She died at the young age of 33 in 1959, when Sudirman was about five years old, after a short illness.
Sudirman’s father, the late Haji Arshad was a manager of the Syarikat Bas Temerloh (Temerloh Bus Company), and like his wife, was an active UMNO politician in Temerloh, Pahang. He re-married after his wife died.
Sudirman attended primary school at Sekolah Kebangsaan Jalan Bahagia, Temerloh and higher secondary education at Sekolah Sultan Abu Bakar (SABS) in Kuantan. He went on to do his tertiary education at University of Malaya for his law degree, and graduated with a Bachelor in Law (LL.B) in 1980.
He practiced as a lawyer after being called to the Bar, and during his singing career, he was also known as "the Singing Lawyer".
As a fan of him,I'm very proud of him because he was the singer that does not forget about his future one day later.At least he had a degree.Artist must be like him because we are not like artists at US or some more.
