Genie Wong is an independent singer and songwriter, now a Social Media Influencer with more then 22 thousand Followers on Tiktok and still growing. A Malaysian; born and raised in Federal Territory of Labuan.

Growing up with both families heavily influenced in music back in the day, Genie has worked with several influential people like Asif & Rene, Roger Wang, Peter Lau and Simon Lau.

Genie finished all of her higher education in the UK and has been performing in multi styles like folk and punk rock. She has also been involved in a lot of choir groups while in the UK and has experience in coaching a choir.

After returning home to Malaysia, she involved herself in songwriting and composing music for various local church organisations.

Her hard work paid off when she won the 1st Sabah Youth Day (SYD1) song writing competition. 


She sang back-up for renowned singer Dayang Nurfaizah at the Konsert Gala 25 Tahun RTM Labuan event. 

Following that, performed for KK Jazz Festival with the group called “Spice of Tones”, led by respected drum maker Peter Lau and noted bass player Simon Lau, who were both key figures in encouraging her to release her own single.

Genie then set up her own project (Sixth Sense Project) with the help of Crowd Funding forums such as MyStartr and Rockethub and raised enough funds to go and perform for the Penang Jazz Festival 2014 Fringe Stages. Sixth Sense Project comprised of Genie Wong (Vocal), Gabby Wong (Vocal), Peter Lau (Drum), Simon Lau (Bass), Damian Paul (Keyboard), MarcVai Elvin Maxentius (Guitar)


Since the enforcement of a movement restriction order in Malaysia due to the Corona virus Pandemic, live entertainment shows and gatherings have been forced to a halt. This left Genie without and outlet to perform with others and share her music. 

She decided to give TikTok a try in September 2020, successfully gaining her first 1000 Followers in just 3 months. She was noticed by A & R Manager Hindhumathy, the rest they say is history
