Malaysian internet star and singer Namewee sat down for an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore, detailing what he likes about chicken rice in Singapore and whether he thinks he's "controversial".
Taiwan’s biggest music streaming company, KKBOX, held its annual music awards show on Saturday (20 Jan) at the Kaoshiung Arena, where it honoured the most popular singers in the past year. The 13th KKBOX Music Awards show saw Mandopop royalty such as A-mei, JJ Lin and Rainie Yang perform a number of their hits on stage, with popular Hong Kong singer Eason Chan rounding off the show with a 15-minute medley of over ten of his songs. Nicholas Tse was another Hong Kong celebrity that made a special appearance at the show, marking his on-stage return as a musician. Malaysian singer Namewee also had a special duet with Hong Kong-based singer G.E.M Tang for his hit song, “Stranger In The North (漂向北方)” All photos courtesy of KKBOX.

Malaysian rapper and filmmaker Namewee had such a good experience shooting his new music video “Funny Action” in Singapore with local director Jack Neo earlier this year that he is hoping he can shoot his new movie in the city-state. “It’s a good place to take picture[s] and shoot [a] music video, because it’s clean. When asked whether the film could be controversial, the singer-director-actor, who first gained notoriety 10 years ago for a remixed version of the Malaysian national anthem on YouTube, replied, “I don’t think so.
Singaporean filmmaker Jack Neo is best known for producing hit films such as the “Ah Boys To Men” franchise as well as “Long Long Time Ago”. But very few young Singaporeans remember the “comedy king” during his Channel 8 “Gao Xiao Xing Dong” days.
Namewee will be performing for the first time in Singapore. Malaysian singer-songwriter Namewee, known for the Mandarin hit song, “Stranger In The North” featuring Wang Lee Hom, will be having a concert on 3 February 2018 at The Star Performing Arts Centre at 8pm, concert organiser Mode Entertainment announced on Thursday (23 November).
