OPPO Malaysia is turning the big 1-0! And to celebrate, they’re not just blowing out candles—they’re igniting a month-long cultural fiesta!

As part of the festivities, they’re inviting everyone to participate in the #OPPOMalaysiaThroughTheLens campaign and explore our rich heritage with their state-of-the-art mobile cameras to see the true beauty of Malaysia’s vibrant culture.

OPPO Malaysia’s Chief Marketing Officer, Monica Chin, said that the campaign is designed to bridge our history with modern innovation—celebrating Malaysia’s magnificent heritage through the magic of mobile imaging and AI.

And true to their motto of “Technology for Mankind, Kindness for the World”, Oppo wants to inspire Malaysians to capture and share unique cultural moments and perspectives through their own lenses!

As a brand which firmly believes in the role of technology to better the lives of people, we are excited to be collaborating with the Malaysian National Commission for UNESCO (MNCU) and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture (MOTAC) to weave stories of Malaysia’s rich culture, preserving it for the future generation while telling these stories through the lens and perspective of mobile imaging.

Join the Cultural Celebration!

The festivities highlight is an extraordinary coffee table book filled with curated snapshots beautifully documented on the newest OPPO Reno Series smartphone and five compelling cultural film stories. The collection showcases five unique Malaysian cultural art forms and their esteemed practitioners:

  • Wayang Kulit: A collaboration between master puppeteer Pak Dain and fusion artist Tin Toy to keep the tradition of shadow puppetry alive.

  • Ngajat Dance: Dion Das Louis, an eight-year-old with a passion for the dance of Sarawak.
  • Magagung: A documentary highlighting young Kadazan men’s commitment to their ancestral rituals.

  • Dondang Sayang: A celebration of unity through the musical traditions of four distinct communities: the Malay, Baba Nyonya, Chitty, and Portuguese in Melaka.
  • Chinese Opera: Classical performer, Ling Goh, shows her dedication to the art form, ensuring its continued presence in Penang’s cultural scene.

Two more exciting videos will be released sequentially on OPPO Malaysia’s official YouTube channel. Meanwhile, the coffee table book will be unveiled as a special treat during the national Merdeka month celebration.
