Psy sent the crowd to ultimate frenzy as his world famous “Gangnam” was played at full blast. He performed it again following popular request from his fans.
But they were definitely flocking in to watch South Korean sensation Psy’s live performance on his global hit “Opah Gangnam Style”, nothing more.
Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak was the guest-of-honour at the function, attended by many BN leaders, including Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor, former premier Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, federal minister Koh Tsu Koon and BN state chief Teng Chang Yeow.
The crowd feasted on varieties of dishes available in abundance and waited patiently for hours from as early as 9.30am to watch Psy’s performance.
Psy, who arrived in Penang at 7.10am after a 20-hour flight from Brazil after another live performance before two million people at the Salvador Carnival on Friday, duly arrived on the stage just after 12 noon before the cheering frantic crowd.
The crowd got near hysterical with his troupe three-minute sensational live performance.
It was exquisite that even caught their eyes and ears of VVIPs. He performed it again following popular request from his fans.
This time most fans were sang and danced with his “Gangnam” rhythm.
The crowd dispersed instantly but joyfully after Psy, whose real name is Park Jae-Sang, ended his grand performance.
Prior to Psy performance, premier Najib announced a vote-catcher in his speech when he told the Chinese-dominated crowd that the BN government would upgrade Han Chiang from its current college status to university college rank.
He also reiterated his promises to build at 20,000 affordable houses and implement monorail system in Penang, claiming that he frequently heard Penangites’ constant moaning on lack of affordable houses and growing traffic congestion in the state.
He promised that his BN federal government would carry out projects to improve public transportation and traffic dispersal system in Penang.
“Everywhere I listen to Penang people complaining about housing and traffic.
“They want houses that they can afford.
“I promise that BN will deliver,” Najib told the crowd, adding that BN would always uphold its motto “janji ditepati” (promises fulfilled).
