KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 6 — After failing to secure sponsors for her first ever concert “Inwinccible”, Soo Wincci had to fork out her own money for the concert, causing her to go almost bankrupt due to her debt.
Soo had her first ever solo concert at the Plenary Hall, KLCC on October 31, 2015 where she invested RM500,000 of her own money after several sponsors pulled out due to a video she posted last August, where she urged the Malaysian Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak to resign.
However, the 30-year-old singer told mStar that she is grateful that some of her friends were willing to lend her some cash to reduce her burden.
“The concert was not a failure. I managed to deliver my best performance to the audience. But it may have failed financially,” said the former beauty queen. “To be honest, I was almost bankrupt due to the debt, but thankfully some of my friends lent me some money so that I can settle the debt.”
Despite the result of her concert, Soo did not regret her decision to carry on with the show because she is now better known internationally.
Some corporations even helped her out by giving out their support letter to every project that she runs.
Meanwhile, Soo is also invited to do a recording in Beijing, China for the CCTV channel in conjunction with the upcoming Chinese New Year in February. — TheHive.Asia
