Drama Band apologizes and regrets for bringing up ‘politics’.
As soon as Drama Band ended their last note of their performance on the night of AJL34, the Interweb was immediately buzzed about the controversial concept that the band had decided to brought upon the stage.
A large number of netizens felt like the performance was a bit too direct and offensive to Malaysia—some relate it to the country’s politics—while the other half felt the performance was a stepping stone to Malaysia’s freedom of speech.
With so many comments given towards the performance, both bad and good, the band’s vocalist—Aepul Roza—stepped forward on his social media to publicly apologize to all parties that had felt attacked or offended from their performance.

What a night lah kan? #DRAMA HAS COME FULL CIRCLE. Hampir genap setahun. See you in the next chapter. #AJL34 Terima kasih @tv3malaysia atas peluang ini. Maafkan kami atas salah silap kami. Kepada yang tersinggung, ampunkan kami. Hanya jalan cerita kehidupan, yang kadangkala warnanya tidak kita gemar. #Dramabois #DramaboisToAJL
Following the controversy, Drama Band’s performance video was stripped down from TV3 Malaysia’s YouTube channel and was put at held as it was seen to be inappropriate.
