Write right, right?

Hi there. I'm Nizam Bakeri, a professional writer and currently a social media editor for Astro AWANI, Malaysia's number one 24-hour news channel. 

As a social media enthusiast, I am proud to be a part of numerous social media campaigns, including:

  • Digital campaign manager for Harith Iskander's victory in Laugh Factory's Funniest Person In The World 2016 competition
  • Co-creator for Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN) loan repayment awareness campaign, coining #BolehBincang hashtag
  • Social media producer for Obviously Harith Iskander, Astro AWANI's number one talk show, winning double gold award at Asian Digital Media Award 2016

I'm also a published writer, with two novels and one short stories collection. My first novel, Pecah, was adapted into motion picture.

I also do research, copywriting, proofreading, and English-Malay translation on a freelance basis.

I love video editing, too. Final Cut Pro X, to be exact. This newfound passion of mine allows me to co-found #AWANIbyte, mobile-first video segment on Astro AWANI Facebook page. 30 millions aggregate views and counting. 

The segment also generates branded content thus giving me opportunities to work together with distinguished clients such as AirAsia, MRT, MAHB, and Skim Latihan 1Malaysia (SL1M)

Above all, I see myself as a storyteller. 

If you need a story to be told or a campaign to be launched on social media, I know a thing or two. Feel free to buzz me. We'll discuss it over coffee. Or teh tarik.
