Buddey is about providing opportunities for all Talents in the music and performing arts to earn additional income, get recognition and gain invaluable experience performing in public. We recognised that whereas Malaysia has an abundance of musical and performing arts talents, locating venues to perform has proven to be unnecessarily cumbersome and difficult hence Buddey aim to empower Talents to easily find performing spaces for busking. Our mobile app also connects general public to easily find and hire Talents for private events. We hope that our initiatives will contribute to promoting, encouraging and developing the local talents in Malaysia.
