Esther Leong,
General Manager
MACP Berhad


Thank You & WelcomeWith a heavy heart we bid farewell to Ms. Chan Miew Lan who has served MACP since 1994. As General Manager, her contributions towards MACP are immeasurable.

From overseeing the impressive growth of MACP since its formative years, managing the staff under her care and serving the members of MACP well, her overall achievements are well-known not only locally, but internationally as well.


ColManagement 2016MACP’s 27th annual dinner and awards show was held at the Royale Chulan, Damansara Hotel. The guest of honour this year was YB Dato’ Seri Hamzah bin Zainudin, Minister of Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism who was represented by his Deputy Secretary General (Domestic Trade), YBhd Basaruddin Bin Sadali.

Pn. Habsah Hassan, MACP Chairman gave a welcome speech which highlighted MACP’s activities namely Cipta Ekspres, Larian MACP and joint event with Arkib Negara, whilst highlighting the challenges faced by MACP this year and aspirations moving forward.


ColManagement 2016The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is an annual celebration initiated by UNESCO to encourage audiovisual archives to showcase their precious collections and holdings as part of an international effort to promote the value of audiovisual heritage.

In conjunction with this year’s theme “It’s your story – don’t lose it”, The National Archives of Malaysia “Arkib Negara” invited MACP to organize a national appreciation and awareness day to highlight the contribution of songwriters and composers to the nation.


ColManagement 2016MACP held its annual songwriting workshop, Cipta Ekspres 2016 at Intekma Resort & Convention Centre, Shah Alam, Selangor Darul Ehsan recently. For the first time, MACP collaborated with the Faculty of Music, UiTM, Shah Alam to find the next generation of young composers.



MACP had its inaugural Fun Run for its members, staff and media held in conjunction with the KL Car Free Morning (KLCFM).

The 7 km route started from Dataran DBKL and passed through major streets in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle. The roads were closed to allow for people of all walks of life to run, walk, cycle, roller-blade and even ride horse carriages.


MyIPO 2016Following the recently concluded MACP 26th AGM, a MACP delegation led by Pn Habsah Hassan had a fruitful meeting with YBhg Dato Shamsiah Kamaruddin, Director General, Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) and her senior officers at MyIPO office. MACP was also represented by directors Datuk M Nasir, En Ad Samad, En Johan Nawawi and General Manager, Ms Chan Miew Lan.


As informed to all attendees by our Chairperson Pn Habsah Hassan at the recent Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on 16 June 2017, MACP is facing a challenging time since receiving the directive from the Government to form a one-stop collecting body for all four licensing bodies (MACP, PPM, PRISM and RPM) in Malaysia.

The new body, Music Rights Malaysia (MRM) Berhad, was finally declared a licensing body on 1 August 2017. Although the licence allows MRM to collect retrospectively from 1 January 2017, we do not expect MRM to be able to catch up on full collection due for the year 2017 by this year end.

Therefore, we regret to inform all Members that MACP is unable to give any royalty advance or grant under the Music Development Fund (MDF) for the time being until further notice.


Allahyarham Johan Bin Mohamed Nawawi On 24 March 2017, the Malaysian music industry lost one of our prominent and prolific music composers, Allahyarham Johan Bin Mohamed Nawawi (Johan Nawawi), who passed away as a result of a heart condition.

He is well-known for churning out popular ballad songs performed by Nora, Liza Aziz, Sheila Majid, Fauziah Latiff, Siti Nurhaliza, Ning Baizura, Erra Fazira and many more. Some of his popular songs include Sinaran (Sheila Majid), Desa Tercinta (Nora), Naluri (Nora), Jentayu (Sheila Majid & Nora).


MACP hosted a 2-day training for 2 officials from The Collective Organisation for Music Rights in Pakistan (COMP), a newly set-up multi-rights CMO. The training cum study visit was organized by World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). COMP was represented by Mr. Umer Sheikh, Chief Executive and Mr. Teymour Aslam, Licensing Manager. more

A briefing cum dialogue session conducted by Ms SK Ng, MACP’s Documentation & Distribution Manager attracted 31 representatives from 22 publishing companies.

The briefing this time focused on giving publisher members practical training on how to use MACP’s online work search more effectively; to register works; notify performances of works in films, commercial or overseas; update changes of their particulars and works online. more
