Jamal believes that the word is alive and all we need to do is just listen. Around since 2010, he has performed at local and international stages such as TEDxKL and the World Islamic Economic Forum, not to mention organizing international slams such as The Straits and the CEX Slam.
Besides running workshops with Poets Passport Malaysia, he also runs English camps for youths with Englishjer. Jamal’s work also crossed over into the commercial space – he’s lent his talents to DiGi, MILO, Hotlink and BSN.
Published in ‘Malchin Testament – Malaysian Poems’ (2016) and ‘Tukang Puisi – Antologi Puisi 55 Penyair Muda Malaysia.” (2018), Jamal hopes that his poems will one day help form the unique voice that is Malaysian spoken word.
