3 Nations share the stage for Konsert 5 Divo
It's not Il Divo, its 5 Divo. On 13 February 2016, five singers from three countries will share the stage for a spectacular concert held at the Stadium Malawati in Shah Alam.
The five acts are Indonesia's Afgan and Judika, Singapore Idol winner Taufik Batisah and Malaysia's very own Akademi Fantasia winners, Hafiz Suip and Hazama Azmi.
To be held on the eve of Valentine's Day, with the universal theme of love, the one-night only concert will see acclaimed music maestro Datuk Ramli MS as the music director, who will also be leading the 50-piece orchestra and band.
As reported by New Straits Times online, Gadaffi Ismail Sabri, director of Laugh Out Loud Entertainment, said that it had always been one of his dreams to provide young and talented singers a platform for them to showcase their music skills.
"The concert is also a gathering of stars, where these five multi-talented singers will have the opportunity to interact with their fans.
"They are some of the best and most well-known singers in the region based on the quality of their music and vocals. Hopefully with the concert, it will open up doors of opportunity for them to advance in their music career," he said.
Laugh Out Loud Entertainment promised to bring the best of the best concert experience for the audiences as it is not a cheap event, costing RM2.5 million to stage.
Gadaffi said this at the concert's press conference in Pusat Bandar Damansara today, "There have been complaints from concertgoers about expensive concert ticket prices that do not justify with the experience of a real good concert.
"For Konsert 5 Divo, we will be working with an Indonesian company that is known to provide state-of-the-art sound equipment. We want the fans to come and experience good music."
Hafiz, AF season 7 champion mentioned, "It's an opportunity of a lifetime to be able to share the same stage with the rest of the talented singers. It feels good to see artistes from neighbouring countries come together in the name of music. Each of us brings to the table a different kind of performance."
Each artiste is down to perform about five songs and they are in the midst finalising the songs and music arrangements. There are also plans to bring the concert outside of Malaysia.
"We are looking into that aspect and we hope to stage it in Indonesia and Singapore. We are also in talks with an Indonesian TV station to broadcast the concert," said Hafiz.
