DiGi brings 2AM to Malaysia by popular demand
Korean boy band to perform in Malaysia for the first time in DiGi Live K-pop Showcase
Shah Alam, 19 April 2011 – DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (“DiGi”) is collaborating with Universal Music Malaysia to have Korean boy band 2AM perform in Malaysia, due to overwhelming demand from fans who made their voices heard on DiGi Youths Facebook. The exclusive DiGi Live K-pop 2AM Showcase will be held on 21 May and it marks the first time the band will be performing in Malaysia.
Unique opportunities to have some face-time with the four-member band are being organised as well based on feedback received from fans online. These include a closed door autograph session, an artiste interaction experience and a meet & greet session.
Moharmustaqeem Mohammed, Head of Segment Marketing said, “We were pleasantly surprised to discover how responsive K-pop fans are in Malaysia. We issued a challenge to our DiGi Youths fans that if they help us reach the target of 147,000 fans for our Facebook account, we will arrange for 2AM to perform in the country. Within four days, we reached that target!
“The enthusiastic online support clearly indicates that there is still a very strong interest for hot Korean acts. Collecting feedback from our DiGi Youths fans on how they wish to interact with 2AM is just our way to engage them on a proactive basis in efforts to further raise the bar on DiGi’s music offerings to our customers. Rest assured, there will be more unique experiences from us in the future.”
