Aniu, Sheila Majid and Malaysian artistes team up for trilingual Covid-19 song

Malaysian filmmaker-musician Aniu is back with another #MYStayHome project just a week after posting his Stay Home To Stay Safe video online on March 18 - Day One of Malaysia’s movement control order (MCO).

However, Covid-19 cases continued to rise in Malaysia, so the MCO was extended for another two weeks until April 14.

To help drive home the message, Penang-born Aniu "composed a song in the middle of the night" and the very next morning he enlisted the help of Sheila Majid, Ana Raffali, Jaclyn Victor and Altimet to sing in the trilingual track (Bahasa Malaysia, English and Mandarin). Sheila and Ana also helped with the writing of lyrics in Bahasa Malaysia and English..

All the singers used their own smartphones to record their own video footage separately at their own homes.

With mixing by Billy Ong and music arrangement by Liu Wei Zhong, the song Stay Safe At Home was completed with the help of the Chinese Film Association of Malaysia (CFAM).

The music video for the song can be viewed on Aniu’s social media channels.

Here are the lyrics for the trilingual song, with English translation provided for the Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin verses.

Stay Safe At Home

[Bahasa Malaysia verse]

Dia datang senyap-senyap menakluk dunia [It emerged quietly, conquered the world]

Tanpa sedar, tiba-tiba dah ada terkena [Undetected, it struck swiftly]

Tidak kira rupa, usia, asal ataupun nama [Regardless of appearance, age, origin or name]

[Mandarin verse]

Coronavirus laile [Coronavirus is here]

Buyao luan luan pao [Don't simply run around]

Ta daizou xuduo baoguì shengmìng wusheng wuxi [It takes away many precious lives, silently]

[English verse]

Coronavirus makes everybody want to run

But running here, there, everywhere

Takes you nowhere

[Trilingual chorus]

So stay safe at home

(Stay away coronavirus)

Duduk dalam rumah diam-diam [Sit quietly at home)

(Stay away coronavirus)

Qing haohao dai zai jiali [Please stay safe at home]

(Stay away coronavirus)

Keep everyone you love, stay safe at home
