“The past year has seen Malaysians, and indeed the world, face unprecedented circumstances. Yet within this struggle is the opportunity for many of us to bring forth the ‘Malaysia Boleh’ spirit and goodwill. If music connects people, then love should be its message and we want Malaysians to share their love and be reminded of the possibilities that our nation can once more strive towards,” said Elaine Soh, Chief Marketing Officer of Samsung Malaysia Electronics.
The Malaysia Di Hatiku campaign will reach all Malaysians, across different generations, races and creed, urban or rural through the release of the music video and TikTok campaign.
