Have you heard Cinta Muka Buku song by Najwa Latif? First time I heard this song a few months ago in HotFM. Her voice remind me to Japanese singer, YUI.
YUI was initially an independent singer. Before becoming a singer, he often performed at Tenjin Station, Fukuoka as a street singer.
I started listening to YUI’s song at the end of 2005. At that time her single, Life has became the ending song of Bleach, the famous anime series in Japan. Since then, I fell in love with YUI’s songs including It’s Happy Line, Feel My Soul, Tomorrow’s Way, Tokyo, Good-bye Days, Rolling Star, Cherry, My Generation, Namidairo, Again and Laugh Away.
Back to Najwa, I do not know much about this girl but I know she also an independent singer who publish her song in Youtube. And I think she have almost same voice as YUI. I hope her singing career will continues like Yuna. (Yuna also start from Youtube). Hopefully there will be more independent singers will enliven our Malaysian music industry.
