Dusun songs won RM100,000 top prize

I've got to make space for this one in this blog. But why? Is it extraordinarily special? Probably.

The sheer amount of money involved in a relatively small competition caught my attention. Even the bigger reality television show such Akademi Fantasia and the government sponsored Bintang RTM would not offer similar amount of cash prizes.

Kudos to the organizers of this KDM Malaysia Idol, a small reality TV show in Sabah featuring talents from the Kadazan, Dusun and Murut communities.

Arie Famree Sius' rendition of the Lumangad Oku Dika (I Miss You) and family backed performance gave him an edge over other competitors to win the RM100,000 top prize of the KDM Malaysia Idol 2013 finals on Sunday night.
