Today, Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) has released a special video produced exclusively to commemorate Brunei Darussalam’s 37th National Day leading up to the celebration on 23rd February 2021.

The video featured RB’s staff and front liners singing along to the popular patriotic song ‘Tekad Kemerdekaan’ (The Pledge of Independence). The song ‘Tekad Kemerdekaan’ was written by H.M. Mashadi and composed by Major (B) Hj Manaf Haji Kamis in 1984. The composer is the father to one of our staff, Yudy Firman Hj Manaf. Yudy’s mother Hjh Saadiah Bte Hj Ghazali is also the original female vocalist of the song. Both Yudy and his parents were also featured in the video content.

“As Brunei’s national flag carrier, we showcase our patriotism by displaying joy and pride towards our beloved nation. RB is the ambassador of Brunei in the skies and through each of the scenes, we reflect Bruneian’s warm hospitality in the way we do our work. I am especially proud that this video was produced internally by our team of talented people,” said Captain Haji Khalidkhan Haji Asmakhan, RB’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Alhamdullilah, this song was chosen as part of the national day video content of the workplace of my son and the talented people in RB. My wife and I are proud to collaborate together with Royal Brunei Airlines on this special project and be part of a video with our son Yudy.” said Major (B) Haji Manaf Haji Kamis.

Towards the end of the video, the number‘37’ was formed to commemorate the country’s years of independence. More than 100 staff from various division & departments took part in the formation with RB’s environmentally-friendly fleet – the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A320NEO in the special Brunei Tourism livery.

RB will participate in this year’s national day parade with representations in two groupings under the Private Sectors and Front liners.
