BiographyEdit

Atta was born in Dumai, Riau as the eldest of 11 children in his family which is popularly known as the Gen Halilintar.[8] The Gen Halilintar family joined the entertainment industry by publishing books about their journey around the world, making vlogs and recording songs. His siblings are also known for recording songs and YouTube videos. He inherited his family business from his parents at a young age.[9] During his childhood, his parents experienced major obstacles and difficulties in running their family business when they lived in Malaysia. He then concentrated to engage in business activities selling food and toys at his young age while pursuing his primary education in elementary school.
