Cinta Setandan Pisang

While “Bae sobar bae” would sound like a foreign language to the unfamiliar, this next trending audio is actually in the Kelantanese dialect.

The audio clip of the song’s intro: “Bae sobar bae, bae rilek bae, jange jange wi jadi gegey” is widely used in Malaysian TikTok, that it currently sits on Number 1 in the Malaysia TikTok trending song list for the past seven days.

The line loosely translates to “be patient dear, don’t make a fuss“, but what song is it from?

The song title is Cinta Setandan Pisang by Eda Ezrin and Den Manjo.

The two may not be known by name outside Kelantan that much, but they enjoy a rather comfortable popularity in Malaysia’s east coast states as singers who mostly sing in the Kelantanese dialect. On TikTok, Eda has over 500k followers and Den has over 180k.

Cinta Setandan Pisang was released last year, composed by well-known composer Eddie Hamid with lyrics by Mama Ana and Fadhil Turbo under the Kijang Music label.

Prior to this tune, the duo hit 16 million views on YouTube with their song Adik Jando Abe Duo.

Ketipak Ketipung Raya

Pak ketipak ketipung suara gendang bertalu-talu…

Not quite the song we’re talking about here, though. While many of us would think of Rentak 106 when it comes to ketipak ketipung, the phrase is now used in a brand new Hari Raya song.

The audio clip from the song Ketipak Ketipung Raya has been trending on TikTok and it’s by Aisha Retno and Aziz Harun.


Tetap hitam di era gempuran shimmer dan blue.. Minal aidin wal faizin, maaf lahir batin yoo 🙏🏼

♬ Ketipak Ketipung Raya – Aisha Retno & Aziz Harun

Released this year, the song has also gone viral in Indonesia.

The song was written by the duo themselves and produced by Sony Music Entertainment.

On YouTube, it has hit 4.5 million views as at press time.

Kita Bikin Romantis

This trending audio clip is more mellow but has already spawned parody versions, with the most popular one, according to our observation, is the Perak dialect.

You’ve probably heard this verse: “Kita bikin romantis, bikin paling romantis, sambil bermain mata, turun ke hati” countless of times.

It is the chorus from the Indonesian song Kita Bikin Romantis by Maliq & D’essentials.

@maliqndessentials Berdasarkan kisah nyata Indra, kedua putrinya & almarhum istrinya di music video “Kita Bikin Romantis” #MusikDiTikTok ♬ Kita Bikin Romantis – MALIQ & D'Essentials

It sits on number 3 in the Malaysia TikTok trending song list for the past 120 days.

Released in March this year, this is only the group’s second single but it has gone viral with close to 10 million views on YouTube.

The parody version in the Perak dialect was done by TikTok user @im.im_ran and to date has collected over 341K Likes.

Shik Shak Shok

This next song is not local but is immensely popular on Malaysian TikTok.

Shik shak shok is an Egyptian belly dancing song made popular by Hassan Abou Seoud.

♬ Shik Shak Shok – Hassan Abu El So’oud

The song has been around since at least the 70s and is part of the “Shaabi” genre. From the Middle East Journal of Culture and Communication, Shaabi means “of the people” or specifically “locally popular” and the songs are typically associated with working-class Egyptian neighborhoods.

The “shik shak shok” audio clip is on number 26 in the Malaysia TikTok trending song list for the past 30 days.
