This weeks fan talent is Jeffri Ramli! Some of you may recognise him as one of the winners of the KBS World Festival in London, and others might recognise him from the UK’s biggest talent show, The X Factor.
Jeffri was born in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, before moving to Germany in 2001 which is where he discovered his love for singing. He slowly started to get his experience at only 5 years old, by participating in school plays. As he got older he started to perform on the streets, in pubs bars and clubs. More recent events include his audition on The X Factor in which he got through to the live auditions, KBS World Festival which he won, and he was even invited to perform for the King and Queen of Malaysia in London! As if this isn’t enough, the King enjoyed his performance so much that he even requested an encore. He’s quickly becoming well known, with reporters from Chronicle Live jumping at the opportunity to write about him!
Although he’s always been interested in different languages and cultures, Jeffri only started to get into k-pop properly through his Korean lessons, where his teacher would encourage him to watch Korean dramas and sing Korean songs. His favourite artists at the moment include Big Bang, Super Junior, Hyolyn, Girls Generation, 2PM, Park Hyo Shin and Lee Sun Hee. Thanks to all these artists and his teachers, Jeffri is now fluent in Korean as well as 5 other languages; Malay, Indonesian, Javanese, English and German.
Don’t miss him performing at the Malaysia Night on 26th September 2014! The event will be held in Trafalgar Square. It starts at 12PM and ends at around 10PM, Jeffri will be performing from 6:30PM. What’s more, is that it’s completely free! Click here for event details.
