Malay Music Event Anugerah Planet Muzik To Beam To 160m Viewers

SINGAPORE : Anugerah Planet Muzik (APM) Awards, a mega event in the Malay music calendar, will be held in Malaysia this year after a five-year hiatus.

The regional extravaganza will be beamed to more than 160 million viewers across four countries, marking a milestone for APM, which is currently into its eighth year.

APM is organised by MediaCorp’s Malay radio stations, Ria 89.7FM and Warna 94.2FM.

The event is hailed as the region’s answer to the Grammy Awards as it honours the region’s best performers in the Malay music industry.

This year’s performers include Malaysia’s Siti Nurhaliza, Anuar Zain, Mawi and Faizal Tahir, Indonesia’s Kris Dayanti and Bunga Citra Lestari, and Singapore Idols, Taufik Batisah and Hady Mirza.

Astro Ria will be broadcasting the awards “live” in Malaysia and Brunei on April 20. Global TV will also carry the programme “live” in Indonesia, while Suria TV will carry a delayed telecast in Singapore on April 26 at 9pm.

Radio stations Ria 89.7FM, Warna 94.2FM and Malaysian Radio Era will be broadcasting the event “live”. – CNA /ls
