KOTA KINABALU: Buskers at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) have agreed to streamline the volume level of music for the convenience of the public especially passengers.
The matter was agreed upon following a meeting between the Sabah Buskers Community and the Malaysia Airport Berhad (MAB) to discuss the issue that was raised by Deputy Chief Minister Christina Liew upon receiving complaints from the public.
The buskers also agreed that only two unit of speakers would be used and placement is facing to the buskers’ performer instead of audiences.
They also agreed that the discipline and dress code of buskers members will be streamlined.
On Sunday, Liew who is also Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister said she had been receiving complaints that the band outside the KKIA arrival halls was playing too loud.
“It causes inconvenience to the passengers who can’t even talk in their smart handphone due to the high volume blasting by the band.
“While we appreciate local talents but I believe the volume should be under control to to a reasonable level.
“It is causing a lot of nuisance to both the air passengers and people who receive them at the KKIA. I appeal to MAB to look into this matter immediately,” she said in a message in her whatsapp group.-SabahNewsToday
