To celebrate last night’s Ciclope Asia Festival Awards, Heckler Singapore teamed up with Tokyo-based creative studio PUSH to treat the industry to an after-party with a performance by headliner act, up-and-coming UK rap artist Jeshi.
Jeshi performed into the night at the chosen venue Wall&Wall in Tokyo. Jeshi began making grime tracks with friends in the late 2000s and has gone on to release an era-defining album with tracks notching up millions of streams. The East Londoner was thrilled by Heckler & PUSH’s invitation to fly out and perform for Asia’s leading creative community.
Heckler Singapore was also excited to have its WorkSafe Victoria ‘It Comes In Many Forms’ campaign named a finalist in the VFX category. One of five to be shortlisted, the campaign was led by Heckler Singapore creative director Cody Amos via agency partner TBWA\Melbourne. It shows a powerful depiction of what gendered violence in the workplace can look like.
Heckler Singapore managing director & executive producer Charu Menon says: “We are super chuffed to score a shortlist at Ciclope Asia and congratulate all of the year’s talented Ciclope category winners. Last night’s after party with the incredible Jeshi was the perfect way to kick up our heels and celebrate with the region’s finest. It was a dazzling night!”
Says Mike Sunda, managing director, PUSH: “Having Jeshi fly out to Tokyo for this was huge for us – from when we first opened our Japan office, we always wanted to be building bridges like this with international artists, but travel restrictions made that tough over the last few years. Supporting and collaborating with artists as committed to their craft as Jeshi is integral to everything we do. The atmosphere was incredible all night, and it was a pleasure to see everyone having so much fun.”
