Celebrity singer songwriter Yuna drew a large crowd today when she performed at a student organized event in Inti College Subang.
Some of Yuna’s hit songs such as “Lullaby”, “Rescue” and also a cover of Drakes “ We’re Going Home”, were amongst the setlist of the performance.
Fiction 21 is a three day event that will run until the 19th of November. The event was organized to expose students to the mass communication industry under a fun yet professional environment.
The first day saw nine contestants speaking on stage for an open mic session, giving their thoughts on various topics related to the media.
The third day will feature performances by Bil Musa, Daiyan Trisha and Thomas and Jack.
The event kicked off with a welcoming speech from Ms.Irene Wong, followed by another speech by Justin Wong, the organizing chairperson of Fiction 21.
The event was officiated by Ms.Tan Ling Ling, who gave a brief speech and presented the opening video.
Being involved in such an event like Fiction 21 for the first time, Yuna believes social media has become a part and parcel of daily life. She says that it is important to try and create awareness and teach people how to fully utilize it.
“Whether in politics, economics or in the entertainment field like myself, it’s important to be responsible with the information that you get and how you convey it,” she said.
Yuna states that having events such as Fiction 21 is a good way to educate people on the importance of the media and how it can attract people to look into the media perspective of everything else.
“If you’re getting into media, you have a certain responsibility,” Yuna said.
Tomorrow will feature workshops by the Communications and Multimedia Content Forum of Malaysia (CMCF) and Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM).
A mini carnival will run simultaneous to the event with food, drinks and games. While entrance to the workshops and performances will be free of charge, coupons to the mini carnival will have to be purchased at the counter.
Fiction 21 is open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm on the 17th 18th and 19th Nov.
