TAUFIK BATISAH - #AWAKKATMANE: His MV has more than 2.7m views

Even if Taufik Batisah's #AwakKatMane fails to snag this award, it wins hands-down for the most-asked question this year.

The Malay phrase translates into "Where are you?", and has become a popular catchphrase among fans and netizens even before the single was released two months ago.

#AwakKatMane is off the local singer's latest album Fique, and the MV has since earned over 2.7 million views on YouTube. Will it be an easy win for Taufik, 33?

"I think the other two videos are awesome and they both deserve to win," the former Singapore Idol champion told The New Paper in an e-mail.

As for the nomination, he had only one question: Is the prize a car?

Umm, sorry Taufik. How about a medal instead?

Win or lose, he has Suria telemovie Demi Adriana - in which he plays an orphan - to look forward to when it airs on Jan 1.

He also performs the song Hanya Kamu on its soundtrack.

I think the other two videos are awesome and they both deserve to win.
