Watch: Raikan Bersama Music Video by Audionauts

Local rock band, Audionauts, joins strings of Singaporean Malay artistes and debuts their Raya single too on YouTube. However, this, we might say is a better take on an original sound, compared to the others that come out this year.

The music video is also an elaborate collaborative effort that credits their contemporaries such as Null Mambang, Lyna Bridal, Susu Dan Solo, Makan First @ Bukit Gombak, M.Noe and also friends who appeared in the video such as Izzuwin Shah , Lydia 19Shootz, Dean White Ali, and Deana Manto. The song is written and composed by the band members itself Malon and Rizal. Good job guys!

Watch: Young TV Faces Make a Raya Cover Video

Alfian Rahim, Aidil Jufri, Mujaheed, Kamsani Jumahat, Shalyza Rosly, Lydia Izzati, Lydia Asyiqin, Erni Aidil, and Hanna Sharif are probably names that you cannot put a face to. Here they are, in this property-agent funded Hari Raya music video with a song made popular by Rahimah Rahim. Some of them are from Anak Metropolitan III, some are Anugerah alumni, some acted in Kelas Detention on Suria and the more notable ones are from the recent Final One singing competition on Channel 5.

Must be fun to have thought about and executed this harmless video. However, we disagree that Ashmi Roslan is in it! The fella has acted many major roles in Malay dramas and a great TV repertoire to boot. I think Mak-Chicks Production could have done without him!

We recommend putting “Selamat Hari Raya – Rahimah Rahim Cover 2013” as the head title, and also to explain how does this help the property-agent whose picture/namecard appears at the end! Selamat Hari Raya!

What do you think?

News: Suria, Ria & Warna Merges To Form MediaCorp Malay Broadcasting Division

We were expecting trailers from the Rentak Komedi 2013 as the DVD release is ready for purchase as tweeted by radio announcer, Aura Shai, on her Twitter account earlier today. But little did we expect this piece of news. Suria, Ria and Warna merges to one division under MediaCorp, it says so on the snapshot of a press release hand in Aura Shai’s hands as she posted it later onto her Twitter account. Great news, yes? What does it mean? You be the judge of it. The letter reads:

“MediaCorp announces key management and structural changes to better align itself to changing business needs. As part of the changes, TV channel MediaCorp Suria as well as radio stations Warna 94.2FM and Ria 89.7FM will be merged to form the Malay Broadcast Division and will now come under Zakiah Halim, in her new role as Senior Vice President of Malay Broadcast Division.
