KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25 (Bernama) -- Malaysian singer Ariff AB, 28, who has carved a name in the United Kingdom (UK), has made Malaysia proud by winning the Young Malaysian International Achiever Award at Top Asia Corporate Ball in Jakarta, Indonesia yesterday.

The singer, whose real name is Ariff Abu Bakar, said the award was given based on his recognition and achievements in the UK and Europe for his music.

“Receiving this award motivates me to do more internationally and definitely I will carry Malaysia’s name with me wherever I go. A new chapter begins. 

"As a new music talent in both the UK and Malaysia, I feel grateful for the opportunities given to me and hopefully soon I can reach out to Jakarta and the rest of Asia too," he told Bernama, here, today.

Ariff said he would be back in the UK for an upcoming tour, besides a show planned for Norway before starting work on his third album.

"The new album will be more collaborative. I don't know how it will sound like just yet, but all I can say, it is going to be different," he said.....
