Rocketfuel Entertainment’s Syazwan Shuhaimi has just made the birth of a first single entitled ‘Sang Purnama’, written and composed by Shazee Ishak together with Audi Mok.

“I’m deeply thankful for all the hard work that has been put into making this single, it’s finally here. ‘Sang Purnama’ is my biggest blessing because I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for quite some time,” said Syazwan Shuhaimi. “It’s like a dream come true when my manager, who’s also my my brother in law, Pak Azad (actor Azad Jasmin) approached Rocketfuel’s big boss, Mr. Feros at an event stating our interest to release a single and it was well-received.”

Syazwan, at only 35, has a natural talent at singing from a very young age. During his studies at the university, he often performed with a band. However, after graduation he put his dream to become a singer on hold. In 2015, he finally released an introductory single but it did not receive much attention.

“My past experience has taught me to be more careful in my singing career. With full encouragement from my family and friends, and some savings that I earned from working as a graphic designer, I push myself to pursue my dream to release this single. Furthermore, metaphorically speaking, ‘Sang Purnama’ is dedicated to the people that we love, they’re like the moon that shines bright at night, and lights up the darkness and silence. It’s for anyone that acts as a beacon in our lives,” he added.

He also said that music has been an integral part of his life, as he has always been a big fan of powerhouse singers such as Luther Vandross, Celine Dion, Usher, and even local stars such as  Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza, Anuar Zain and Hazami. His interest is to create a pop dance number with a bit of jazz and R&B, while he is most familiar with ballads but decided to challenge himself and stretch out his ability in music. Apart from that, he also took up dance lessons for a year with choreographer Faruq Suhaimi.

The Movement Control Order (MCO) period has not dampened Syazwan’s spirit in pursuing his dreams and even acted as a source of encouragement to face any challenge. Sang Purnama took only about a month to be completed because of Syazwan’s emphasis on perfecting his masterpiece together with the music video (MV) directed by director Ghazi Maslan. Ghazi was his first choice due to his proven track record of making good MVs, where he was able to understand his mood and feel for ‘Sang Purnama’.

In the mean time, Mr. Jipie, the new Head of Label & Publishing, Rocketfuel Entertainment said, “We’re honored that Syazwan has accepted our invitation to be part of Rocketfuel. The dedication that he’s shown although we’re all in the middle of this COVID-19 pandemic should be taken as an example. May Sang Purnama will be a positive start in Syazwan’s career.”

‘Sang Purnama’ is available for download on iTunes Store and as a caller ringtone from all major telecommunication service providers and could be easily enjoyed through various music-streaming portals such as Apple Music, Spotify, Joox, YouTube Music, KKBox and Deezer, while the official MV is available for viewing on the the Rocketfuel Network YouTube channel.
