Merdeka Celebration Day

Kuala Lumpur / Aug 31,2012 : In an effort to appeal to the younger generation, the 55th Merdeka Day celebrations was dominated by street performances, hip hop, rap, and choral speaking instead of traditional Malaysian performances – the norm in previous years.This was echoed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak who said: “Merdeka this year is for the younger generation; for the ‘Y’ generation; for the future.”In his national day speech at Dataran Merdeka earlier today, the premier called on youths to make the best of what the country has to offer.To huge cheers from the crowd, Najib said: “For 55 years we have kept our promise and Malaysia is a safe, prosperous, and secure country.”Later Najib, his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and all the Cabinet ministers were seen on stage grooving to the ‘I Am For You’ song, which was repeated throughout the event.Image
