We are all green with envy watching these future doctors take the stage with such ease, ditching their scalpels and sutures for rap and harmony.
A recent video of a bunch of future doctors from Melaka Manipal Medical College, dressed in suits and red dresses, had the crowd going wild at an event as they rapped, harmonised and beatboxed to Joe Flizzow and Sonaone’s ‘Apa Khabar’ & Balan Kashmir’s ’16 Baris’ verse.
The performance was so good that it caught the attention of Balan Kashmir, who posted the video to his 55,000 followers on Instagram.

Manipal India #16baris version 👑 Anyone from Manipal here? Growing up, most of my seniors and friends were doctors. They supported my journey all the way. But watching these future doctors performing Apa Khabar & my 16 Baris verse today was unbelievable. 611 would be proud watching this wherever you folks are ❤️ I don't know these folks but they represented 🇲🇾 to the fullest. Power of music, hiphop and faith never fails to impress me. Thank you all who did this showcase and Tula from Perak because he sent me this. Walaupun gua tak sampai sana lagi, my verses did. Godbless y'all and keep making us proud, worldwide 🙏 #balankashmir #16baris #malaysianhiphop #hiphopmy #manipalindia #melakamanipal
16 Baris is an online rap show hosted by Joe Flizzow from Kartel Records. 16 Baris showcases local asian talent hailing from all over Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore who freestyle in 16 bars (hence the name “16 Baris”).
Balan shared that he was so proud watching these doctors perform his words in Manipal, quoting, “Walaupun gun tak sampai sana lagi (Even though I’ve not been reached there (Manipal, India) yet), my verses did”.
We are looking for these amazing performers. Tag them in this post if you recognise them.
