Loads of entires from Singapore, Malaysia, Phillipines, Thailand and Indonesia for this coolest job ever (including myself). Matthew Zachary Liu, 24, a Singaporean social media junkie beat all of us and earned the job with an engagement fee of $10,000 USD and prizes!

The appointment of the first-ever MTV World Stage Insider was announced, right after the special live screening of the 2013 “MTV Video Music Awards” (VMA) this morning, in front of a small group of online media and bloggers who attended the VMA screening in Singapore and across MTV Asia’s social media channels.

Liu, will now get to experience the coolest ten-day ‘job’ by being a part of the MTV social media team, representing fans and introducing them to the MTV Experience from the inside, via real time regular updates, videos, tweets, and photos of MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2013

Currently serving his national service as a firefighter, Liu is also an experienced host and active social media junkie. In being picked for the US$10,000* gig, Liu beat a talented pool of entries from across Southeast Asia and emerged the top candidate after a Skype video call interview process with shortlisted potentials last week. His first day on the ‘job’ commences on 30 August till 9 September 2013.

Ten years ago, I was a kid who was introduced to and fell in love with the world of music entertainment because of MTV. To me, MTV is not just about music. It introduces what the next big thing is, it holds the power to create and shape the future generation. A decade later, I am chosen to be MTV World Stage Insider! It’s an unbelievable childhood dream that’s come true,” gushed Matthew Liu. 

Liu emerged top-of-the-class amongst a host of applicants, impressing MTV Asia with his creative social media resume. Complemented by a wealth of local and regional experience accumulated since his teenage years, Liu’s exciting resume include the recent Singapore MediaCorp’s The Final 1 where he was the backstage live host,Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic GamesSingapore Idol, celebrity interviews with the likes of Maroon 5 and The Script and as the Programme Director of Radio Heatwave, Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s radio station where he was previously a student.

It’s an even greater honour to represent youths out there like myself, and to be part of that enormous influence on MTV’s audience. As the MTV World Stage Insider, I hope I can represent fans well in sharing stories on MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia that bring fans one step closer to experiencing their own MTV dream.

So, let's stay tuned to Matthew's coolest job and check out the latest updates of MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2013 and line-up teasers! Congratulations Matthew!
