RED People is a Malaysian online supergroup and artist management company founded by rapper-songwriter Namewee. It was established with the aim of integrating the forces of Malaysian online personalities, and prepare them for mainstream media.

History[edit]

RED People Artistes started recruiting online personalities with a strong following on YouTube in late 2013 before it was established on January 1, 2014.[1] Its first video, "You're Not Red" (你不紅), was uploaded onto YouTube on March 23, 2014. It rose to fame when Joyce Chu's video for "Malaysia Chabor" was uploaded on May 23, 2014. Following that, a series of videos were uploaded onto YouTube, encompassing a wide range of video types, including another music video for "Sambal Party" (38派對) during the 2014 FIFA World Cup period, RED News, which imitates the news and several videos by its artistes.

In November 2014, RED People created a boy band, P-High, consisting of Charles Tee, Kevin Tan, Jimmy Tan, Wong Xiao Le and Wilbur Ng. Their song, Very Shuai (Very帅), gained over 100,000 views within a day.[2] In December 2014, it launched girl group Amoi-Amoi, composed of May Ng, Stella Chen and Strawberry. Their cover of Chopstick Brothers' "Little Apple", which includes a number of Malaysian fruits, received more than 13,922,000 or more views on YouTube at April 2019.[3]

In January 2015, RED People released their first Chinese New Year album, entitled "Red Red People Red Red Year" (红红年), which included the song "七洞强" as well as some others.
