Penang authorities canceled a TikTok-initiated dangdut-themed concert near Maulidur Rasul, citing sensitivity to Muslims. Deputy Chief Minister Mohamad Abdul Hamid mentioned residents’ protests as the reason, urging the Seberang Prai City Council to withdraw approval.


Umno’s Bertam assemblyman and Kepal Batas MP protested the event, despite it featuring Malaysian and Indonesian dangdut artists. Former Kebun Bunga assemblyman Jason Ong expressed surprise, highlighting a shift in local sentiment. The cancellation raises questions about balancing cultural events and sensitivities in a changing landscape. The event may still be held in a larger, less communally targeted venue. Good #relationships is important.
