Lowpro5, a music group established back in 2019, was crowned as the champion during the recently held Angsana Best of Busker programme.
The group comprises five talented youths, namely Muhammad Nor Azlizam Azrin also known as Zam (lead vocalist), 28; Mohammad Arsyad Shafeeq (second vocalist/second guitarist), 32; Nazwawi Suhaimie (lead guitarist), 27; Muhamad Basir (bassist), 24; and Amarul Aslam (cajon player), 31.
During the final stage, they presented their renditions of Bukan Rayuan Gombal originally by Judika, Malam Biru by Sandy Sandhoro and Drama by Drama Band.
When asked about how they felt about the winning title, Zam said that they did not expect themselves to be chosen as the champion.
“With thanks to God, we didn’t see that coming, because in our opinion, other groups are equally as great and talented.
“Our intention is just to entertain people and I’m really glad that everyone enjoyed our performances,” he stated.
The victory qualified them to bring home a cash prize of RM500, a hamper and SIM cards sponsored by Halo Telco.
Zam added, the victory was motivated by the group’s former members, Mohd Adha (original bassist) and Faqhrul Anuar (original lead guitarist).
“Both of them were the backbone of our victory. Their encouragement and support were what drove us to give our best performances during the programme,” he explained.
Apart from Lowpro5, the buskers who also made the final stage of Angsana Best of Busker were 6sixsibben Band (second place), Kugiran Adik Kazim (third, also crowned best performance), Bye Bye Raincity (fourth) and Mustarim (fifth).
The runner-ups also received cash prizes, hampers and SIM cards sponsored by Halo Telco.
The prizes were presented by the Political Secretary of the Perak Menteri Besar, Dato’ Sham Mat Sahat, accompanied by Angsana Ipoh Mall’s manager, Hanafiah Ab Hamid.
Angsana Best of Busker was held in conjunction with the supermarket’s 25th Year Silver Jubilee celebration to choose the best buskers, besides to revive creative arts of roadside entertainers which were badly affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
