SOUTH-EAST Asia’s leading e-commerce platform Lazada unveiled a star-studded lineup for its Lazada Super Party on March 26 – a virtual concert slated to be simulcast across six countries to kick off its ninth anniversary celebrations.
Global award-winning singer-songwriter Katy Perry and South Korean boy band NCT Dream are set to headline this year’s shoppertainment-packed Lazada Super Party concert, sharing the stage with local stars Haqiem Rusli and Ismail Izzani, to name a few.
These fun and exciting performances will accompany consumers as they count down to Lazada’s Surprise Birthday Sale event that starts at midnight on March 27.
Consumers across Malaysia can tune in to the exclusive Super Party concert via Lazada’s in-app livestream channel LazLive, as well as local broadcasting networks Astro Ria, TV3 and social media platforms.
Themed around celebrating “everyday heroes”, this year’s concert not only pays tribute to frontline essential workers who have been working tirelessly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, but also shines the spotlight on individuals in our community who have in their own ways touched the lives of people around them.
“Lazada has grown into the robust e-commerce platform that it is thanks to the strong support and trust that our sellers, brands, customers and partners have given us over the years, ” said Lazada Group chief executive officer Chun Li.
“As we celebrate Lazada’s ninth anniversary, we also want to recognise the positive impact made by every individual in our community. We are excited to continue setting the benchmark for the e-commerce industry, by propelling entrepreneurs and brands forward in their digital transformation journey, and serving consumers through a safe, convenient and experiential shopping journey.”
Lazada Group chief marketing officer Mary Zhou said: “I’m delighted that global superstars Katy Perry and NCT Dream, as well as South-East Asia’s biggest names, are joining us in this year’s celebrations dedicated to individuals and communities who have stood strong and resilient in the past year.
“I look forward to the opportunity for Lazada to bring joy to consumers in South-East Asia through our annual signature Lazada Super Party concert and birthday shopping event, and that our community will remain hopeful for the future.”
Sharing words of positivity and hope to her fans in South-East Asia, Perry who topped the charts with hits like Roar, Dark Horse and her latest studio album Lazada said: “Thank you for supporting and loving me all this time. I am excited to meet you soon at the Lazada Super Party, to hopefully spread a little light, love and joy and have everyone sing along with me, even if we are physically apart. I wish for Lazada to help all of their customers as they need, and for everyone to always look on the bright side of life.”
