KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Masidi Manjun, the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment said that the Sabah government is in full support of platforms that promote the local music industry.

In his speech during the launch of the local entertainment tabloid, Bandwidth Street Press, he expressed hope that the publication will introduce and promote new local musicians while serving up the latest information on the local entertainment scene.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Arthur, he said that Bandwidth Street Press is distributed free at major cafes, clubs, malls as well as on the web. He explained that the term Street Press is a type of publication between a magazine and a newspaper in terms of distribution, content and audience.

During the Saturday night event at D’junction Fun Pub & Bistro, guests of the launch were treated to a mini concert by Sabah’s up and coming groups like Jlaja, Andulusia, Sasuka, Fingerstyle and local hip hop group Kinabalu Kings and dance performance from Xydro, Sabah’s premiere BBoy dance crew.
