Kuala Lumpur November 28, 2016 – There are days in a man’s life, when he just wants to lay low, hang with his bros and go on a crazy, wild adventure – away from the girlfriend, the wife or the family. Coming this December, action entertainment channel KIX HD is debuting its brand-new reality show, The Ultimate BROcation, to give viewers a glimpse of that male fantasy!
Malaysia’s own hip hop artist, SonaOne, stars in this hilarious, five-episode reality series following four famous Southeast Asian celebrities who meet for the first time in an unforgettable, testosterone-fueled vacation in Hong Kong. Joining SonaOne on the brocation are Philippines’ R&B / Pop star Billy Crawford, Thailand’s “bad boy” DJ and TV host P.K., and Singapore’s maverick chef Bjorn Shen. Bringing these four strangers together is Hong Kong martial arts movie star Philip Ng, who has invited them to join him on an all-expenses-paid trip full of authentic, tailor-made experiences offering the best of his hometown.
“We are very excited to work with Hong Kong Tourism Board and Endemol Shine Group to create this KIX HD original production. The Ultimate BROcation is a fun-filled ride that guys will relate to and ladies will laugh at! The show captures how four guys who don’t know each other can bond over shared experiences in a foreign land. I think our viewers will really enjoy the bro-bantering between SonaOne, Billy, P.K. and Bjorn. Their antics on this ‘brocation’ are truly hilarious.” said Andy Chang, Senior Vice President of Advertising Sales, Marketing and Original Productions, Celestial Tiger Entertainment.
Mr. Simon Wong, Regional Director, Hong Kong Tourism Board, Southeast Asia, shared, “We are glad to work with KIX HD and Endemol Shine Group on the production of The Ultimate BROcation and now we are excited about the airing of the series. We believe that the bros’ unforgettable fun times in Hong Kong will inspire the audience to experience for themselves the best and most authentic shopping, eating and playing options Hong Kong has to offer.”
“It’s a little nerve-wrecking when you first meet someone you don’t know. It’s even more stressful, when it’s with three other dudes you don’t know that you have to go on a brocation with. But I’m always up for an adventure and needed an excuse to get away from home, so I said yes!” said SonaOne. “I am so glad that we all hit it up pretty well; Billy and I always talked about music; P.K. is sophisticated yet also the quickest with jokes; and Bjorn always makes things happier and dares to try anything. I also feel we are all musically inclined and every time someone pops a joke, it would end up as a song, and we kept each other on our toes just doing crazy things like that!”
SonaOne added, “Also, I did not expect Hong Kong to be so Muslim-friendly. There are endless shopping, eating and playing options to explore. The halal food offerings are interesting. I even got to savour halal dimsum at a famous restaurant in Kowloon City.”
During the show’s press gathering, SonaOne shared highlights of the “ultimate” experiences he had with the bros; seeing, feeling and tasting the best Hong Kong has to offer. From jamming with an old lady on Temple Street to racing up to the Peak, to fly boarding on the south side of the island, to tasting some authentic Hong Kong dishes; it was certainly a trip to remember.
