Wow...This fler sure like Malaysia, eh? Having called Malaysia's his second home, he will be back here again (again?) in February 2011 for a two days full blown concert at Staduim Malawati Shah Alam.
This was announced at a press conference at KL Tower just now. Prior to the press announcement of the concert, there was a Platinum Award giving ceremony to Maher Zain.
His debut album called Thank You Allah has sold over 120,000 copies in Malaysia, entitling him for 8 Platimun Awards.
Maher Zain first ever live appearance in Malaysia in two mini concert held in Shah Alam on October 14 and 15 was sold out without much major promotion. Then his recent 3 days Charity Night Dinner Show also received overwhelming response.
On November 1, Maher Zain became the first Muslim artist to hit 1 million fans on Facebook just over 1 year after the launch of his debut album, a feat unmatched by any other contemporary artists.
Statistically 65% of Maher Zain fan base is in Malaysia. Wow, no wonder he can't ignore this part of the world. Heheh!
Great news for the Malaysian fans, Maher Zain will be recording a Bahasa Malaysia version of Insha Allah. There are many versions already in the market - Arabic, French, Turkish apart from the original English version.
I think we should feed Maher Zain more sambal belacan to get his tongue softened for singing in Bahasa Malaysia. LOL!
Kita minum dulu...
Maher Zain already started learning Bahasa Malaysia - using the words Terima Kasih, Bagus, Satu, Dua, Tiga sparingly with his interaction with his audience. We can't wait to listen to the BM version. :)
When asked if his wife would be attending his concert in Malaysia, his response was a no. Little wifey stays at home, OK? Kena jaga rumah. :)
His concert will be featuring Mesut Kurtis from Macedonia, Irfan Makki from Canada, Inteam from Malaysia and will be backed by 10 professional live musicians.
Inteam Records as exclusive distributor of Maher Zain's album in Malaysia with collaboration with Fiero Entertainment and Awakening Entertainment will be presenting to you....
Tickets info will be announced in Jan 2011. We heard it will be from RM50 onwards.
