We got to know Arddley Nicholas and his brother Nick Nicholas Alliun during 440 Records Fortissimo mentoring initiative (2012-2014) in Kota Kinabalu. You can imagine how absolutely thrilled we were at D5OB’s success in Asian Beat 2015!
We caught up with Arddley Nicholas during a brief visit to his hometown, Tambunan, and got him to share about his experience as a member of Dominant 5th of Borneo – a band of friends and brothers formed around this time last year that won Yamaha Band Mentor 2015 to represent Malaysia at Asian Beat in Tokyo, Japan. Here’s his story.
