According to NST, the event, organized by South Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aims to connect ASEAN countries and Korea through the universal language of music, facilitate an exchange of cultures and foster mutual solidarity.
The 31-year-old singer whose real name is Sophiatul Liana said that the opportunity was a dream come true! Aww, we’re so happy for her!
She is scheduled to perform five songs during the festival and is currently undergoing preparations for it.
“I am very excited to represent Malaysia and this is a very big opportunity for me and my team, Budak Ngam. This is the time to feature the talents available in our music industry.
“I received the good news during the middle of the month. My manager gave my profile to the South Korean organisers and two weeks later we received the green light for me to represent Malaysia,” she said.
Sophia, who is also a member of the girl group De Fam added that she would like to highlight the unique traditions of Malaysia in her upcoming performance at the AKMF2021.
If you’re living in South Korea, you can catch the performance live in a concert hall and remember that you MUST adhere to the strict SOPs!
The festival will feature performances by 10 artists from the ASEAN region as well as popular South Korean stars.
Amazing! We’re so proud of you, Sophia!
