KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 18 — The MET10 Awards was joined by some of Malaysia’s best performers including rappers Joe Flizzow, Altimet and SonaOne from the Kartel Family Crew, pop rock band Paperplane Pursuit and Resh, who both recently broke into the US charts.
The night was filled with thrilling performances as they celebrated Malaysia’s English artists who make the weekly Malaysian English Top 10 (MET10) chart which airs every Sunday from 3pm till 4pm on the local radio station, hitz fm.
Hosted by the MET10 presenters, Arnold Loh and Ryan Matjeraie who were hosting the show until last October, now current on-air hosts Jake Abdullah and Jason Lo are in charge to showcase Malaysia’s best talents. The four teamed-up for the first time last Saturday at StarXpo Centre @ KWC Fashion Mall for the three-hour show.
Network Content Manager of hitz fm and ERA fm, Raqeem Brian mentioned, “We thought this might be an interesting combo; to pitch them against each other. So, we took a little risk and had a lot of fun along the way. It was great team chemistry as they clearly charmed the crowd the entire night.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all music enthusiasts for coming out tonight to celebrate the local English music. Huge congratulations to all nominees and winners, we look forward to hearing more of your music on hitz fm. And to all artistes who performed, awards presenters, and more importantly, the working team, thanks for making this show a smashing success,” Brian added.
