sooka wins a Silver Award at The Putra Aria Brand Awards 2022

sooka reaffirms its brand proposition as the go-to app for the best live sports action, local entertainment, and Originals by clinching the Silver Award for the “Media Networks” category at the inaugural Putra Aria Brand Awards.

This award exemplifies sooka’s continuous commitment to build a brand that resonates well with its young audience, anchored by its goal of providing consumers with a personalised streaming experience – all accessible at their screen of choice, anytime and anywhere they want, with no commitment or contracts.

Hilda Shamsul Bahri, Head of Brand and Communications at sooka, said: “The recognition received from the inaugural Putra Aria Brand Awards is a huge milestone for sooka in our brand journey of providing our consumers the accessibility to the best of local content.

We are honoured to be chosen as a winner by the consumers, despite being the youngest brand in the same category with other established media networks.

As a young brand in the market, we believe in building consumer trust, and this starts with understanding what matters most to our audience, establishing constant engagement, be open and listen to their views, and ensuring the entire consumer experience is delivered well. sooka is constantly building something new and different, and we want this process and the entire journey of brand building to be an inclusive process with our audience. ”

“When sooka first emerged, we started as a mobile OTT service, catering to young millenials who embraced a mobile-first lifestyle. We also knew that our playground will be different – we will be an active player in the social media and digital marketing space to reach out to our consumers.

This requires us to always be on our feet listening, analyzing, and making constant improvements to our service and content offering. It is a liberating experience and being agile has helped sooka to continue being a responsive brand.

Hilda Shamsul Bahri – Head of Brand & Communications, sooka

We also look forward to collaborate with like-minded brands out there that believe in the same aspiration – delivering difference whilst putting our consumers views’ at the forefront of what we do.”

Hilda added, “We have a long journey ahead of us to continue establishing our footprint as the hyper local hub for streaming freedom. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their trust, support and for voting for us.

It has always been sooka’s aim to provide customers with streaming freedom, and we are glad that our customers understand our aspiration.”
