Fatia, a 21-year old that hails from Kuala Lumpur is popular on TikTok with her account name @thisisfatia, always showcased her love for music and built her following through duet singing videos on TikTok. Raised in a home filled with pop, classic rock and soaring showtunes, Fatia’s music talent was honed from a very young age.

Her parents also encouraged her heavily to pursuit her passion for singing. TikTok discovered her sweet yet strong voice in her many videos covering musical numbers from her bedroom.

As TikTok continues to make a name for itself as a hotbed for musical talent, we are committed to continue supporting the local music scene and giving talented artists such as Fatia a platform to show their voices to the world. Our mission is after all to always bring joy to the community through unlimited creativity and expression,” said Sheau Mei Cheah, TikTok’s South East Asia Music Marketing Lead.

Her new song, My World Too, was inspired by the vocal stylings of pop royalty like Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and Malaysia’s very own Yuna. The song serves as a reminder to be true to oneself and dare to carve their own path in life.

Fatia says, “This will be my first professional venture into the music industry and I am really excited for what’s to come. TikTok has been instrumental in making my voice heard and I’m honoured to be the first-ever signed TikTok artist. Truth be told, I downloaded the TikTok app during the pandemic as a way to “sing my heart out” but little did I know, it led me to this! I’m truly grateful for this opportunity.”

It also marks Suwito’s second partnership with TikTok, after the earlier release of Perihal Dirimu earlier in the year between Malaysian artist Haikal Farid and Indonesian singer songwriter Weswey.
