Aziz Harun’s Jangan making waves in Malaysia

Sometimes I am amazed that we do have what it takes to be talented artist. But we also need to have that perseverance, hard work and dedication to make it successful. It’s never easy especially when you have to juggle with education, a high school graduate from Jerudong International School.

A very humble person, it’s no surprise that Aziz Harun has made it a name for himself in Brunei and yes, he is only 18 (now you can drive, bro). I wished I am still around that age because it’s always great to feel youthful.

Aziz Harun’s latest single, “Jangan”, has been released successfully on iTunes and also the launched of the official music video produced by Bahzi Damit @beedee.creative. So far the music video has garnered around 40,000 views in just two days into the release and now has hit over 120,000 views. Amazing!! Aziz Harun’s first single, “Senyum”, did break the milestone in terms of views on youtube (over 2 million views). Let’s see if he’s able to break his record.

The sneak preview of “Jangan” took place at Bang & Olufsen signature store at Sejalin Living last Wednesday, attended by Aziz Harun’s family and friends and of course, the social influencers. Sorry that I wasn’t able to attend your mini gig then.

Aziz Harun is currently in Malaysia for a mini tour to promote his latest single “Jangan” as he has been making appearances at malls within cities and also at university along with Warner Music artists. So far, the responses have been encouraging and overwhelming as the fans were singing along the chorus when Aziz performed. As he mentioned, he will be taking a gap year to gain experience outside Brunei and performing more live gigs in Malaysia. At the same time, he wants to learn to compose and write song as well as writing for others. He is very grateful that his latest single hit the top chart in Brunei’s iTunes and it will motivate him to constantly work hard and make new music.

Aziz Harun is now being managed by his sister Molly Harun while his previous manager, Bahzi Damit, has focused more on producing videos. The latest music video “Jangan” was produced by Bahzi’s company @beedee.creative. All the scenes were shot in Brunei. The pre-production took 3 weeks while the shooting lasted 3 days with one week of editing. According to Bahzi, this is the second music video that was shot in Brunei after his previous single, “Mama”. For Bahzi, the music video was more of a social experiment kind of video and he hinted that there was a story for which you will need to watch to understand.

Once again, good luck to Aziz Harun on his latest venture and hopefully you will gain more exposure and success.

A strong presence in the Malaysian charts, jumping to No.26 from a debut number 46. Let’s hope it keeps rising to the Top 10.
 


No surprise it topped the Brunei chart on iTunes

The newly open T•K Restaurant and I love the food too. Serving seafood as well. Located at the same building as Thien-Thien Gadong.
 


The app for The Mall Cineplex is quite convenient now. I believe this is the first of its kind for Brunei to use barcode to enter the cinema. Kudos, Mall Cineplex on this feature.
 


Rafhanah Salleh’s thought of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. I believe even my peers felt the same way and so did I. Apparently one person loved it so much he watched it three times. My final verdict: 6.5/10
 

 


So the censorship board has enforced this ruling and cinema operators have been playing their best to not allow kids or children below 17 years to watch movies for matured audiences. This can be a bit tricky but it will be a culture that families will be accustomed to. I do agree with the ruling and it’s just a bit more of awareness and publicity for parents to be aware of the ruling of catching movies with children in the cinemas.
 


Epipeople Consultants had their first sneak at It’s A Grind at Citis Square. The responses have been great so far and more workshops to come in the near future.

This tournament alone will be the BIGGEST prize pool in our eSports history, at over BND1,000 – all thanks to @battlepromms Will the current champion (Hanif Hamzah) successfully defend his title or will we be seeing a new champion for FIFA 17? We’ll find out together on 1st October 2017 during The Festival Hari Belia 2017. Image taken from ETA Games @ Cineplex.
 


Something I can’t wait – FIFA18 will be out this weekend while W2K18 will be sometime in October. Check out ETA Games for updates.

Nuriskandar was a bit sakai when he saw the new facelift of KFC at Giant, Rimba.
 

 


I saw this yesterday in the papers and I thought it was quite unnecessary since he was not involved in any business transaction as his role was purely a photographer. I know of some people who even have higher positions or even dealing with clients from that company and had left but never been published in this manner. What gives? I do support the paper but this one thing that I don’t support.
 

 


My favourite dish at Sate House – Chicken satay. Very tender and juicy 😀
 


For your information at Bang & Olufsen (Brunei).
 


Something I learnt as a speaker and an evaluator on stage. If I take things seriously, I can see my growth. Thankful for the people around me who have helped and supported me all these years.
