SYOK has over 60 new online radio stations offering extensive variety and compilation of music, and a new Chinese news channel ‘YOU-NEIRONG’ for the latest news and current affairs updates.

2021 was also one of the best years for Rocketfuel Entertainment when they signed up over 70 talents, artists, songwriters, actors, actresses, influencers, models and celebrities in one year.

Currently Kenny is serving as Chairman, Communications and Multimedia Content Forum (CMCF) and Vice President of Malaysia Mobile Technology Association (MMTA).
