Another year has nearly passed, and it’s now time for us to look back at the creative directors, popular productions and viral videos that marked a year in Malaysian pop culture on YouTube. Say hello to the top videos and music videos of 2019 on youtube.com.my!
These videos were ranked according to time spent watching, sharing, commenting, liking and more by viewers based in Malaysia. They are also a representation of the amazing variety of creativity shared on YouTube Malaysia throughout the past year.
2019 continued the trend seen in previous years where local entertainment ruled the YouTube airwaves. Topping the top trending video list this time around are user-generated content (UGC) by 1-million sub creators Syahmi Sazli and Alieff Irfan, while television shows by Astro Ceria, MeleTOP and Anugerah Juara Lagu 33 are scattered throughout the list. Local music was also seen trending, with “Jom Raya” by entrepreneur-turned-singer Dato Aliff and ‘Baby Sayang’ by Caprice and Mira Filzah making the list.

The annual YouTube Malaysia Ad Awards was also celebrated and honored 2019’s most outstanding ad creatives on Malaysia’s most popular video platform and daily destination for entertainment, information and education.
The biggest winner of the night was Celcom — the nation’s leading telco provider brought home the ‘Ad of the Year’ award for its entry ‘Cucu-cucu Tok Ucu: Filem Pendek Hari Raya’ which also won the award for Best Ad in Telecommunications. The 2019 Hari Raya short, set against a charming ‘kampung’ backdrop, captured an unusually tech savvy ‘nenek’ longing to connect with her grandsons for Raya by getting them to source her ingredients for her & Sambal Goreng Pengantin’. It’s familiar seasonal settings and humorous contrasts of personalities kept judges and viewers fully engaged throughout and wondering about the outcome.
In addition, seven YouTube creators and channels – Alieff Irfan, Alyssa Dezek, Cody Hong, JinnyBoy TV, JO Channel, KiniTV, and Les Copaque Productions – were also honored at the awards show with the YouTube Gold Creator Award in recognition of their subscriber base climbing past the 1 million mark.
