988 is releasing its annual Chinese New Year album in time for the festivities.

IT’S only a month away before the Year of the Horse comes galloping in. In conjunction with the celebration, 988 is releasing its annual Chinese New Year album.

Entitled 988 Ma Ma Mi Ya Guo Hao Nian (988 Mama Mia Have A Good Year), the album consists of three new songs featuring the station’s radio announcers like KK Wong, Jason Poon and Cassey Soo.

Two of the songs were written by the radio announcers themselves – DJ Hau Min wrote the lyrics for Yi Shou Xin Nian Ge (That’s One Chinese New Year Song) while DJ May penned Ma Ma Mi Ya Guo Hao Nian, which is in Cantonese.

To promote the album, the 988 gang will be going on tour every weekend from Jan 12 (2pm-5pm). Some of the locations they will be at include Tropicana City Mall in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Leisure Mall in Kuala Lumpur, Paragon Mall in Penang and Ipoh Parade in Perak. 988 will give out the exclusive album and other Chinese New Year goodies at these locations.

Ma Ma Mi Ya Guo Hao Nian is presented by DNA LAB. For more information, log on to www.988.com.my.
