The official chart has not yet been updated to reflect the latest position on Sunday, 7 December, but Steve Ripley, head of Soulfood Music, a UK-based Urban/Soul music promotion company, based with Music House tweets:


This was retweeted by Triple O Production, which produced the label.

UK singer-songwriter Paul Chambers (aka Paul Johnson) reacted:

The UK Soul Chart on 30 November 2014 showed Dasha in No 2 spot.

This was Dasha from two years ago:

And five years ago:

The legend of the Alleycats lives on.

It is pity that Dasha’s hit song is not on the local airwaves, let alone the local music charts.

Alleycats is good but they have to sing malay songs to survive in order to get the airtime on local TV and radio during the 80s.

I remember Loganathan sang Led Zepellin songs very well.

I hope Dasha can keep to her roots and not to sell out singing malay songs to get the attention of RTM or TV3.

She will have to (cover herself) to appear on RTM or TV3.
So no need for such publicity!

Non Malays can sing native songs as well as Malay songs. However, almost all Malay singers cannot sing Chinese or Indian songs as our national school education policy fails at world stage. Even Siti struggles with conversational English – despite private tutoring from hubby Datuk K(?)

Actually many Chinese Malaysians have had number one hit songs on Taiwan pop chart in the last 20 years. Many non Malays of Malaysia have to venture overseas for recognition when The BN government only promote Malay songs on RTM and TV3 in the last 50 years.

Mahathir said foreigners can become the PM of Msia one day.

In a way this is quite true. Our locals not able to promote the country lie Ang Mohs. For example, this youtube video shows an Ang Moh food ranger promoting top 5 penang food recently.

tunglang better pick up his DSLR and make a local version of what’s the best Penang food, otherwise local Penangites can never beat the enthusiasm and creativity of Mat Sallehs’ invasion on local food scenes.

Long time no food shooting since my last street food crawling.
Thinking of adding tunglang’s Dancing Taste Buds Firmware to my Nikon Df to arouse my passion for Penang Ori-Maestro Street Cuisine.

There are many music charts giving du recognition counted by means of record sales and lately more on music streaming requests or itune sales. Nevertheless, Dasha is credible in her own way. I hope she can make guest appearances on UK TV programs like UK X Factor or Dancing With The Star to gain more publicity in global market. Having said that, she must be wise with “helping hands” that may give her fast and direct access to commericial media as such sponsor may ask her to return to be part of BeEnd machinery for GE14 Gerak Belia events.

The progeny of Alleycats croons to the top of UK music chart!
Penang kia pun-su.

LGE should ‘move fast’ to secure her as Penang’s worldwide ambassador of art & music in line with marketing Penang as cultural heartbeat of Malaysia (without insanity of bias).

Congrats to Dasha Logan & (late) Loganathan Arumugam. UR truly ‘dahsyat’.

also not to forget the late Arumugam the goalkeeper of golden era of Malaysian football. The goalkeeper with “spiderman” nickname could catch the balls firmly unlike present Suzuki Cup goalkeeper who could not hold the balls and spilled them out for the Vietnam to score last Sunday.
