SUPERB SUPERGIG!



Fooh, what a night it was! GUAMUZIK SUPERGIG ’08 definitely delivered (at least in my books) on the promise of a great night of scintillating entertainment.



I know the artistes enjoyed themselves, and as the organizer, I must say that I don’t have much to complain about. The crowd wasn’t as big as expected, but it was an enthusiastic lot that turned up and I sincerely hope they had a blast.

But the stars of the night were the artistes who gave it their all and gave the GUAMUZIK brand a super huge boost. From Estranged’s ass-kicking opener to Faizal Tahir’s finale, the energy level was on the max throughout.

And a big shout out goes to my own GUA team for the extra hard work put into making this happen in 3 freakin’ weeks. We were of course greatly helped by a fantastic production team led by Kelly and Ben, music director Lok U and his peeps, as well as the KJH committee. Thanks guys!

Estranged opened accounts with their latest single and of course, Itu Kamu

A Super Show In Store at GUAMUZIK SUPERGIG '08!



Today’s D-DAY! Everyone’s pumped up, and be prepared to be blown away!

In total, the 14 artistes will be belting out 22 songs tonight. They’ll do their own solo thing, as well as some clever collaborations. I’m so tempted to reveal the run-down, but naah… let it be a surprise.

At last night’s soundcheck, I got to view almost all of the performances, and man, it was simply awesome. Be it the rock, hip hop or pop set… They were all doin’ their things to the max, dawg!

Anyway, apart from the great performances, 1,000 lucky audience members will also receive free downloads of a special SUPERGIG album. Free gig, free downloads… what more could people want?!

So peeps, see you tonight at Bukit Jalil Stadium, 8.30pm for a super rockin’ time!

Meantime, enjoy these soundcheck snaps...

My KK2 Cameo - For Real!

I was at AIM a few saturdays back when I got a Missed Call from an unfamilliar number. Then an sms came in that said KK2 director, Aidil, was offering me a scene to appear in. Gulp! - was my first reaction. Of course, it'd be totally cool to appear in the drama I co-created and wrote the story for... And I kinda knew which part Aidil was talking about. But instead of accepting right away, I chose to sleep over it and decide the next day, which was also the day of the shoot.

When "tomorrow" came, I was pumped up to give it a shot. I called Aidil and got a brief from him on what to wear, etc. And since I had a copy of the script, I started practising my lines. Oh yes, the "producer" part actually had 3 whole lines.

Location was at Sri Pentas, and when I finally joined the production team, of course I was greeted by "wah, you'll be acting with us!" from some of the leads. Next up was makeup, and the "star" that I am, I actually asked for my hairstyle to be changed, after the first attempt made me look more like a banker than a film producer.

Then it was time to shoot. Aidil showed me what to do for a bit, and then it was .... "Action!".

The main shot just took 2 takes. Yes, please be impressed. And I didn't really fluff my lines. After doing the various closeups, we were done for the scene. And I was confident Aidil wouldn't have to edit me out later. Phew!


So yes, the scene is in and it will be in episode 6 of KK2, which will debut on GUA on 28th May. Hit me with some comments later, ok? But as they say, if you've got nothing good to say... : )

KK2 Theme Song - TIADA SEKALI


Of course we had to have a theme song for Kerana Karina 2! And this time we got Johan Nawawi to compose and produce the tune, with lyrics by, ahem, power-crazy me.

But if I only took about 3 hours to complete KK1’s theme song “Yang Mana?” performed by Marsha, it took me a couple of days for “Tiada Sekali”. Why? Well, while the end product might appear to be pretty simple stuff, finding the right words to fit into the context of the story proved to be a tad tricky.

And really, I think “Tiada Sekali”, performed by Tunku Tiara, who plays Zelfa in KK2, will only be fully understood and appreciated towards the end of the story.

Tiara herself did very well on the song. She's got a very pleasant tone and will do well in the industry with these sort of ballads. At least that's what I think.


To preview and download the song, please click here.

TIADA SEKALI

Dengarkan cerita ini, tulus dariku
Kisah cintaku buatmu, yang satu
Walaupun diburu ragu, dan salah sangka
Setiaku tak pernah goyah

Chorus:
Tiada sekali, kau jauh dariku
Oh yakinlah kasih

Tiada kan mungkin, cintaku pudar
Ku bawa, selamanya

Sejak kau hulur tanganmu, kasih tercipta
Tak kuhirau semua yang melanda
Mutiara cinta kutemui, hanya kernamu
Kan digenggam erat, oh janjiku

Repeat chorus


Artiste: Tunku Tiara
Music: Johan Nawawi
Lyrics: M.Zulkifli

Kerana Karina 2 Returns Today!

Today’s D Day folks! Kerana Karina 2 makes its debut on GUA.COM.MY and the buzz has begun! And of course, we were on Malaysia’s favourite morning talkshow, MHI, to promote KK2.
One of KK2’s new stars, Tunku Tiara opened accounts for us, so to speak, by singing the theme song “Tiada Sekali”, after which director Aidil Fitri, Marsha, Tiara and myself got down to the business of selling KK2.

Tiara was still a bit, um, unsure and even tergamam-ed at one point during the interview (no worries girl, you’ll do better I’m sure J ), but Marsha looked really comfortable now talking about her character and the show.

This is of course just the first of a slew of interviews the stars of the show will be doing in the upcoming weeks.



After the interview, we had brekkie at the Sri Pentas café and talked about KK3 and possible storylines. And some very interesting ideas came up, including one that involves turning KK into Prison Break! Ha ha!

But before that, do checkout KK2 now by going to GUA or KK2’s own dedicated microsite here.


Tiara and her very supportive mum

Aidil enjoying some lontong...

And what does a big internet star like Marsha have for her breakfast? Same as you and me lah, good 'ol nasi lemak...

Kerana Karina 2 Launched! (part II)

Of course I had to give a speech lah... : )

Chelsia returns as Jennifer, Sherina's (Sazzy) best friend - who's got other hidden talents as well. Watch to find out!
Tunku Tiara (OAIM) plays Zelfa, Dato Ross's latest signing, and Karina's new rival. You know what this means, don't you? Catfight!

So obviously Imran (Zizan) returns. But will they be together?

One of the hot new editions Nabil plays Sherina's kid brother - and gets everyone into trouble actually
