"The fury behind the album is real..."
(The Sydney Morning Herald)

She was newly declared one of 12 inspiring human rights activists to follow in 2018 by Amnesty International. Mai Khoi broke international headlines in 2016 after she became the first Vietnamese celebrity in history to nominate herself for the National Assembly (equivalent to parliament) on a pro-democracy platform.
