Miracle Vs Marketing Maestro

The other day I was having small little drinks with a couple of friends. This friend of mine and his girlfriend happens to be music performers. They tour around town and also South East Asia performing jazz and at times blues. Although they are not some big shot, they are happy doing just that.


Upon chatting, he was telling us some story during one of the concert which were at KLCC, and the infamous Mawi came on top of the story. Though this may seem to be towards the line of jealousy to his die hard fans, but I can assure you that it is not.


The word is most of the old time performers and big shots from our music industry is having a hard time understanding what is the fuss about this new sensation. Better yet let me just rephrase that, this old timers rockers are not only failed to understand what the fuss is about, but were also hurt by the sudden booming popularity and the amount of fans that they don't even have for singing for about more than a decade. The worst thing is we all know Mawi is not a great singer and he sings mostly cover songs.


The fact that the old and better singer has only about 50 people and Mawi having about thousands of fans appearing just during rehearsal. Yes you heard me right, just the rehearsal, not the actual show yet.


Although I do not blame Mawi, he has the majority of Malaysians under his wings. The Felda boy who 'mengaji' and stay true to his faith comparing to tight jeans wearing, flimsy hair and drugs inducing singers. He can even croak at the mic and yet it will sound beautiful to the majority's ears.


Another word out on the street is the producers would not be coming out with another Akademi Fantasia that soon, because they want to sustain Mawi's popularity and milk him dry.


The people inside our music industry, nonetheless are indeed pissed.


p/s : I do not really care about all this, but I fear the people would like to know. Since tabloid and newspapers would not be showing all this.

I don't have anything on him, nor I do care.

Just re-telling a story of how the other artist thinks about him.
