Zul Faden's album & website launch
IT WAS definitely a night to remember for Brunei's top local artist Zul Faden, formerly known as Zul F as he officially launched his latest album 'Memori Cinta' last Saturday at the Jerudong Park Mini Amphitheatre.
His latest album includes 10 songs written by Zul Faden himself, co-produced by Lily Chiam and Hans Anuar. Hans wrote the song 'Sepi' in which both Zul and Hans did a duet for the album.
According to Zul, this album is his official full length album with the previous being a single.
"I really enjoyed working together with Lily Chiam and Hans Anuar whom I both consider as my mentors," said Zul Faden.
He said that he hopes his new album would appeal to the masses and as of now are trying to promote the album not only locally but also to the international market such as in Japan and other regional countries.
"I want to go international so to get there I have to be versatile. It coincides with my interest too as I love to sing in a variety of foreign languages.
"And I've also picked up a few words in Japanese, Mandarin and also Tagalog along the way,"
When asked about his role as an artist, Zul explained that it entails a social obligation to bring out positive messages to the community.
"We must look after ourselves, the way we talk to people and more importantly, we must be humble and show respect," said Zul
An artist has to dream big, be disciplined and willing to work hard to get where they want to be, he enthused.
With his music career taking off, Zul Faden is also counting on the possibility of acting in the near future as he harbours an interest to act in soap operas and dramas.
"I've been approached in the past by a few RTB producers to do dramas...with Allah SWT's blessings if there's any offer to do acting, I'm very interested to play the role of a villain as it (interests me most)," he said.
