Multi-talented, award-winning Malaysian rapper, graffiti artist, singer, songwriter and music producer SonaOne landed in Hong Kong recently for the filming of The Ultimate BROcation, a new reality TV series, created by action entertainment TV channel KIX HD (Astro Ch 729). The Ultimate BROcation will capture all the fun and hilarity of SonaOne and three other Asian male celebrities, as they experience Hong Kong as the ultimate guy’s playground.
Known for his hit song, No More which clinched the Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM) “Best Song” in 2014 and “Apa Khabar” which placed first at the Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL) 29 a month later, SonaOne brings his own beat to the show as he taps into the rhythm of Hong Kong with his new bros: Filipino-American singer, dancer and actor Billy Crawford; popular Thai TV and radio host DJ PK; and Singaporean maverick chef and restaurateur Bjorn Shen.
The Ultimate BROcation is a five-episode reality series following the adventures of four male celebrities as they revel in an all-expenses paid vacation of every guy’s fantasy in Hong Kong. The show will be filled with parties, exhilarating activities, fantastic food, beautiful ladies, cool gadgets and some solid male-bonding. The four guys may start off as strangers but will end up as “bros” after experiencing the “brocation” of a lifetime. Joining the four bros in a cameo appearance is Hong Kong martial arts star Philip Ng. Most recently seen on the hit action TV drama A Fist Within Four Walls and the martial arts epic Once Upon A Time In Shanghai, Philip will show the bros his city and act as an advisor during their “brocation”.
“I love travelling and exploring new places to find experiences that inspire me. I’m looking forward to checking out all that Hong Kong has to offer and I am absolutely certain it won’t disappoint. Who knows, this whole experience might inspire a new project where I get to pay tribute to the wonderful people and places I encounter,” said SonaOne. “I’m excited to hang out with my new bros too because there’s always something to learn from each other – it will be cool to learn about food from Bjorn or pick up a few handy phrases in Thai from PK!”
Coming from a Malay-French lineage and a family that moved around during his growing up years to Spain, Japan, France and finally back to Malaysia, SonaOne, whose real name is Mikael Adam Lozach, truly finds inspiration in everything he goes through in life. His passion and cheeky demeanour, coupled with his love for adventure, makes him the perfect bro to hang around with.
The Ultimate BROcation is produced by KIX’s parent company Celestial Tiger Entertainment – operator of the largest bouquet of pan-Asian channels dedicated to Asian entertainment – and Endemol Shine Group, the global production house responsible for the award-winning MasterChef and Big Brother series, in collaboration with Hong Kong Tourism Board, Cathay Pacific and the Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel. The show will air first and exclusively on KIX HD (Astro Ch 729) in December 2016.
