In a song that’s quickly becoming a popular “power to the people” soundtrack, local Sabahan artists and performers like Marsha Milan Londoh, Velvet Aduk, Elica Paujin, hip-hop group K-Clique, and others presents Sabah Bangkit, in a 5-minute music video on YouTube.

The song was co-written and produced by singer-songwriter Aizat Amdan and his award-winning producer and brother, Anas Amdan who are both frustrated and galvanized by the political atmosphere in Sabah.
