KUALA LUMPUR: Form Five student Low Sook Wee, popularly known as Suki, won 8TV’s biggest talent-search reality show, One in a Million (OIAM), last night.
She beat two other finalists – Muhammad Alif Mohd Satar and Ahmad Faizal Mohd Tahir – and clinched the RM1mil prize consisting of cash and a recording contract, that includes collaboration with top producers and artistes, and a marketing campaign.
Met right after the show, Suki said:
“I’m happy and I thank my fans for voting and believing in me. Now that the contest is over, I plan to focus on my studies.

“I will discuss my future plans with my parents and 8TV when I complete my studies,” said Suki, who won the hearts of viewers with Audi Mok’s original composition Berdiri and pop duo M2M’s Everything.
OIAM, which was first aired on May 26, is different from other talent-search shows as it is open to both amateurs and recording artistes.
Among the artistes who participated in the show was Dayang Nurfaizah, who was voted out in the final elimination round last week.
The contest saw the finalists singing English and Bahasa Malaysia songs.
OIAM is the first local talent-search reality programme that allows viewers to vote for or against their favourite and least likeable contestants.
More than 5,000 hopefuls auditioned for the reality show with hopes of winning the one million prize.
8TV’s Quickie presenter Marion Caunter and Awal Awal Ashaari hosted the show.
