The Coronavirus Effect
More events across the industry have been postponed or cancelled this past week due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This includes the much-awaited Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair 2020 (KLIBF 2020) that’s been indefinitely postponed. The announcement is a big disappointment for authors who will be debuting their works at the event. The same disappointment must also be felt by bands and artistes who’ve had their gigs pre-empted. Let’s show our continued support for our artistes and authors during these challenging times by purchasing their works and promoting their channels and activities online.
Are You Ready for ‘Roh’?
The much-anticipated horror flick ‘Roh’ has created a positive buzz following its press preview recently. Produced by Kuman Pictures, the film is directed by Emir Ezwan and stars Farah Ahmad, Nam Ron, Mhia Farhana and others. Catch ‘Roh’ in cinemas beginning 19th March!
