The September 4 show seeks to raise funds for Malaysia’s COVID-19 frontliners
Malaysian rappers SonaOne, Yonnyboii, and famed singer Siti Nurhaliza are among some of the artists slated to perform at a 24-hour virtual concert early next month.
The charity showcase, dubbed Program Amal COVAiD #BaikSemula is scheduled to air on Malaysian radio station Hot FM’s Youtube channel, Hot TV, on September 4 from 12am onwards. The show seeks to raise funds to help the country’s frontliners against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a Juice report, the charity concert – organised by Hot FM’s parent company Media Prima Audio (MPA) – will also feature artists such as Nisha Omar, Dayang Nurfaizah, Hazama and the Penglipurlara, Jaclyn Victor, Naim Daniel, Shila Amzah, and more.
Also on the bill are pop-punk group Bunkface and indie rock group Hujan, among a list of 30 acts in total.
While the virtual concert will not be a ticketed affair, viewers are encouraged to donate to the Media Prima-NSTP Humanitarian Fund via Maybank account 5141-0532-3170.
Hot FM – which will be collaborating with other MPA radio stations including 8 FM and Fly FM – is also looking to raise funds for the purchase of medical equipment and food, apart from other daily essentials for victims of the pandemic.
