Virtual diva Hatsune Miku is set to hold her first concert in Malaysia this year, and the concert will feature the country’s top entertainer Zizan Razak, as well as Thailand’s YouTube sensation Chaleeda Gilbert as the opening acts!
At the Miku Expo press conference yesterday, it has been revealed that the virtual singer will be singing a song by Malaysia’s top comedic actor.
Zizan Razak, who is most known for his blockbuster movie “Polis Evo”, has revealed that Hatsune Miku will be singing his song “Chentaku” at the concert.
“I’m so thankful to Astro and Crypton Media for having me for this concert. This is a great opportunity for Hatsune Miku’s international fans to get to know me,” said the 33-year-old entertainer.
“I’m also happy to announce that Hatsune Miku will be singing my song “Chentaku” on that night – it’s going to be awesome,” Zizan added.
