Year 2017

Thank You & Welcome!
With 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.

She also played a pivotal role in building exceedingly good relationships between MACP with governmental and regulatory bodies, licensees, international affiliates and the music industry as a whole.

MACP would not be the respected body it is today, without her utmost dedication and commitment to the company over the years.

We are also pleased to welcome Ms Esther Leong as the new General Manager of MACP. Esther has over 20 years of working experience in the music publishing industry. She was the General Manager for BMG Music Publishing Malaysia for 14 years and during that period she has also served as Vice-Chairman and Director of MACP.

We wish Ms. Chan the very best in her future endeavors and we welcome Ms. Esther into MACP with open arms!
24 March 2017:
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).

He was a Director of MACP since 2009 and has contributed to many initiatives, among others the cooperation between MACP and Arkib Negara in 2016 to encourage songwriters and composers to preserve their music-related artefacts for the reference of future generations.

This award-winning composer has received many accolades such as from Anugerah Juara Lagu, Anugerah Industri Muzik among others, and has served in several panels of judges for various music competitions.

He leaves behind a musical legacy that Malaysians should be proud of, as well as other contributions in films, TV shows and animation.

MACP express our deepest condolences for his wife Nora Ariffin (Nora) and family for their loss.
