Do you have any celebrity friend? Well…I do. Most of them are either novelists or deejays. But ever since I started to join the good folks in Sahabat Media in various media trips and activities, I got to know a good looking kid, who happens to be a talented singer. He’s Iqwal Hafiz, the Singing Traveler and I met him for the very first time during Banghuris Homestay trip. 🙂
I’ll be honest, I’m not very familiar with Malaysian music industry…and only knew a few names…most of them are…well…older entertainers…or those drama actors and actress who are usually age 30 and above. :p And having meet this humble and down to Earth kid…I never once thought that he is an internationally known star. 🙂
I fell in love with his voice and humble charisma the very first time I listened to him sing on the stage in Banghuris Homestay and have been following his career with interest ever since. 🙂 Learned plenty of new songs from him each time he sang live during those trips that I joined.
One would have thought that an artist status would made him cocky…but cocky is never a word I’d use to describe this young man. He’s easy to approach and his manager, Myn Khairuddin, more fondly known among us as Mama Myn a.k.a his mum are friendly to boot and most of us in Sahabat Media knows him personally.
First time knowing Iqwal…during Banghuris Homestay trip
Initially I thought he’s just another Vlogger. Then I discovered that he’s a star in his own right. Check out his website HERE
Iqwal singing during the KTAM sponsored Railway Tourism Trip to Bukit Gnatang Homestay. One of the most memorable memory for me. He sang ‘Anak Kampung by Jimmy Pelikat’. A pretty catchy song that’s now one of my favourites. 😀
Memories with Iqwal- Adventure in 100 Doraemon Secret Gadget Expo. Kiddo fooling around with Iqwal.
Here’s thanking Iqwal for being our friend and entertaining us with various serenade, dedicating songs for me and my husband every now and then during DJ Azz and DJ Lia Omey’s program, Carta Blogger 30 in Ewana Fm every 10pm-12am every Tuesday. (sometimes we bully him into singing for us…LOL) and on the behalf of my family and everyone at Sahabat Media…we wish you a very blessed birthday and a wonderful career ahead.
Cleffairy: Thank you for singing for us and thank you for being our friend.
