Just few months ago, we caught up with MTV VJ Hanli and VJ Alan to talk about what to expect from MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014. Through the interview, the VJs are expecting MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014 to be a whole lot crazier with more screams, more excitement, and more energy!
Although Jennifer Hudson will not be performing at the concert anymore, the artistes including Yuna, Boys Republic, and B.o.B will be rocking out with the crowd at Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon on 16th August this year!
Now that we’re only a week away from the highly-anticipated one-night-only outdoor concert, here are some of the things you should know about the MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014:
1. Thaitanium joins artistes’ lineup!
Last year, we got a taste of the Malaysian hip hop scene from our homegrown talent Joe Flizzow who performed his hit single, “Havoc”, at MTV World Stage Malaysia 2013. This time around, Thai-American hip hop group Thaitanium will be joining the artistes’ lineup for MTV World Stage 2014 in Malaysia!
Formed in 2000, the group is among the first to break out from the local hip hop scene in Thailand and has released 5 albums in the span of 14 years. The hip hop group has previously collaborated with Joe Flizzow to produce the upbeat track “Do It Big”. More recently, they featured American rapper Snoop Dogg in their latest single “Wake Up (Bangkok City)”. On top of that, they previously performed for the MTV Asia Awards and was an opening act for 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg.
2. Aric Ting is the new MTV World Stage Insider!
Oh look! VJ Alan finally found the guy who nabbed “the coolest 10-day job” for MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014!
21-year-old Malaysian student, Aric Ting Sie Yee has been appointed as the MTV World Stage Insider to provide exclusive behind-the-scenes details for MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014! From 7th August onwards,the insider will be connecting the MTV Experience with fans through MTV’s social media sites (together with the MTV social media team) to post regular updates about the concert. Aric will be given the option to do his internship at MTV as well after the 10-day engagement.
They don’t call it “the coolest 10-day job” for nothing, right?
