In fact when VIMA was launched back in 2008, the vision of us as founders were the exact same thing. Thats why the awards was called Voice International Music Awards, to provide a music platform for up and coming artistes to express themselves through innocation and creativity. Its also super cool that both the corporate colours of Fz.com & VIMA is the same - Red and Black. As such, the theme for VIMA 2014 will be customized to Fz.com's slogan and will be showcased as "Express Yourself" and we will be encouraging guests to wear something black and red to the awards night on 22nd March 2014", said Meera Thuraivel, CEO of Bite Media Sdn Bhd and co-founder of VIMA.
