Altimet, a true Malaysian at heart who often raps of his hometown in songs such as his much acclaimed album “Kotarayaku” said, “I’m truly honoured to be the new voice on the Waze app. Through this, I am able to get closer to my fans. Instead, of them coming to see me ‘live’ in concert, I’ll be right there with them on their phones, guiding them back to their hometown to see their loved ones this Raya season. It’s my way of being there for them.”
