In his pre-recorded acceptance speech shown during the event at Vogue Lounge in Menara Suezcap, Kuala Lumpur, Dr Mahathir said, “Anugerah Instafamous Inspirasi was presented to me on the basis of my leadership, dedication and contribution to the people of Malaysia, as well as hard work.
“There is no shortcut to hard work. If I can be a good example, Alhamdulillah. If we love our country, we must be willing to work hard to rebuild our country.
“Today, information and news can be accessed anywhere and quickly with a mobile phone, and anyone can become a ‘broadcasting station’. It is important for us to practise responsible behaviour so that information is delivered accurately, correctly and not ‘fake news’. I thank hurr.tv for this special award.”
hurr.tv channel director Datin Elaine Daly said, “We are truly humbled by Dr Mahathir’s acceptance of this award. He is truly a remarkable individual who has always shown his strength, discipline and determination in providing the best for the people and the nation.
“We hope this award can be a catalyst to inspire and encourage others, especially the youth in today’s digital age, to work hard to achieve their dreams and dedication as shown by our Prime Minister.”
Entering its second year, special awards were also presented to eight other personalities who demonstrated their integrity and commitment in their respective fields.
