1001 Personaliti

Ceritera Amylea Azizan

Amylea Azizan – Ramai yang mengenalinya saat menjadi salah seorang pelajar Akademi Fantasia, sebuah rancangan realiti berhantu era 2000an. Ada pula yang mula meminati dirinya menerusi program nyanyian One in a Million (OIAM) musim ketiga.

Pun begitu, penyanyi kecil molek ini pernah hilang dari industri muzik buat seketika. Masanya dihabiskan di belakang tabir, menghasilkan karya-karya indah buat halwa telinga para peminat muzik Melayu termasuklah meminjamkan suaranya buat watak Anna dalam filem animasi Frozen versi Malaysia. 

Iski rasanya tatkala mendapat tahu Amylea Azizan, pelantun lagu ‘Ku Berserah’ ini sudi untuk tampil sebagai bintang tamu di ruangan 1001 Personaliti kali ini. 

Jika dahulu, saya duduk dihadapan kaca televisyen, menanti giliran beliau bernyanyi. Sekarang, lagu dendangannya dinantikan seluruh Nusantara saat jarum jam menandakan pukul sepuluh malam. 

Runut lagu drama berantai popular TV3 itu bagaikan sebuah ‘comeback’ buat dirinya yang sudah sekian lama menyepi. Peluang berharga ini saya gunakan sebaik mungkin untuk merungkai kisah perjalanan si buluh perindu ini.

1. Bila kali terakhir Amylea pergi ke Brunei?

Kali terakhir ke Brunei pada tahun 2005. Yes, it has been that long but, I still can’t forget it sebab it was one of the biggest opportunities I have ever had in my life! It was a remarkable experience. I still talk about it until today.

2. Can you recall your experience in Brunei at that time?

Mawi, Felix, Marsha and I were invited for a special New Year’s Eve performance at The Empire. The stage was hanging off in the middle of the hotel! It was truly a great moment (for us).

3. What have you been doing after Akademi Fantasia?

In 2007, I became a songwriter. I got the chance to write my first song, an original sountrack for a drama – Sinderela. A couple of years later, I went for One In A Million (OIAM) season 3. This was a big chapter of my life and was actually a turning point for the kind of artist I wanted to be.

(Through the years), I also got the chance to produce for other artists like Alif Satar, ROMAN, Kilafairy and many more. I managed to write and work on more than 50 songs, sang countless jingle adds and voice overs including the voice of Anna in the Malaysian version of Disney’s Frozen. I currently own an event company with my partner Farouk Roman.

4. Amylea kini lebih gemar berada di belakang tabir. Which ones are your favourite projects to date?

I love them all, actually. Setiap project has its memory and history to it. But, if I have to choose, my personal favourite would have to be ‘Akan Tiba’ by Alif Satar, Misiku Kuza by Roman and ‘Patung’ – a single I never get to release.

5. Runut bunyi drama berantai Nur (TV3), ‘Takkan Pernah Hilang’ nyanyian bersama Kaer Azami membawa tuah buat Amylea, have you ever expected it to be well-received?

I had so much faith in this project. When I got Kaer to be on board, it felt special. We kept joking that it would be in AJL (Anugerah Juara Lagu), but when it actually happened, it’s on another level of excitement!

I never thought I could be so lucky. Hats off to Farouk Roman and Kaer for believing in my vision.

6. Pernahkah Amylea terbayang akan tercalon di dalam anugerah berprestij seperti Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL)?

When I came into the industry, one of the goals was to be there in AJL – not just as a singer. So, I’ve berangan myself to be in AJL for the longest time. I knew I would be there eventually.

7. Apa perbezaan sebelum dan selepas tercalon di dalam AJL?

Like a facelift! I am known to be self-motivated. But, the motivation I got after AJL was life-changing. It made me feel even more humble sebab you rasa macam thankful sangat!

8. Untuk musim terbaru drama Nur, Amylea sekali lagi berpeluang untuk menulis sebanyak 5 buah lagu OST bersama Farouk Roman untuk drama tersebut dan antara barisan penyanyi yang dipilih untuk Nur 2 adalah rakan-rakan alumni AF sendiri, apakah perasaan Amylea ketika diberi peluang bekerjasma dengan mereka?

I feel satisfied sebab boleh lakukan sesuatu untuk cuba naikkan bakat-bakat atau genuine talents dalam industri. Rasa bangga sebab mereka ini punya bakat besar dan mempunyai nama yang dihormati. Untuk dapat kepercayaan sebegini, it is an honour.

9. Why have you agreed to work together sekali lagi dengan Radius One?

This is not a second time working with the production. It is probably my 20th time since 2007! It is easy to work with people who trust your ability and Radius One is in its own class. I don’t have any doubts working with them.

10. Berbeza dari musim pertama, kenapa Kaer tidak bekerjasama kali ini?

Sayangnya, Kaer couldn’t be involved in this project disebabkan oleh kekangan masa dan komitmen yang harus diberikan untuk his own clothing line, Quhji.

Sepanjang tahun, terlalu banyak masa Kaer saya ambil untuk mempromosi lagu, kemudian AJL – semuanya back to back! Tak sempat bernafas untuk dia dan juga family. I am devastated not having him this time tapi AMYLEA X KAER will be back!

11. Dari mana Amylea mendapat inspirasi untuk menulis atau mengarang lagu-lagu tersebut sebenarnya?

Gosh, I never knew the answer to this! Alhamdulillah, it’s a gift from Allah but, I really don’t know. Tapi, for OSTs, I would read the script and start from there.

12. Who do you wish to collaborate with in the future?

I would love to collaborate with Yuna or Raisa 😛

13. Selain projek OST Nur 2, what are your plans for the rest of the year?

Future plans, to release my own solo single. I would be psyched if I can turn it into an R&B piece! That has always been my passion, originally and of course, another collaboration with Kaer Azami.

14. Ada ucapan buat peminat, terutama yang berada di Brunei?

Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me; tak kira dari AF, OIAM or recently. Without your support, I am nothing. Thank you for listening to my work and I can’t wait to be in Brunei again one day.
