The Unsung Malaysian Heroes Award 2017 was recently awarded to Khai at the Behind My Smile 2017: Humanitarian Conference.
“I wasn’t expecting to win this award. I was once one of them, I living in the dark, almost giving up on life and wasted the opportunity to live. I had nowhere to go but music inspired me. It taught me to come out of it and inspire others like me through music” – Khai
Through musical activities, performances by his band and his motivational talks, Khai empowered more than 100,000 youths aged between 10-17 years from underserved communities to lead a drug free lifestyle under the Drug Free Youth Association since 2010.
Khai also runs The Traveller, assisting refugees and the homeless by providing education and food supply.
