John Gaisah - among Sabah's finest Dusun singer..

He was dubbed Tom Jones of Malaysia.

He was undoubtedly Sabah's greatest ever singer in the Kadazan-Dusun language..

Sadly, he passed away in 1981, in a car accident. He was only 26.

But after 28 years, John Gaisah songs continue to mesmerise everybody in Sabah..

The melody are catchy and evergreen.

He was born in Kampung Sunsuron, Tambunan, a beautiful scenic district in the interior of Sabah, known for its rich heritage in traditions...

John Gaisah's only son - Aldro is a budding singer in Sabah.

We miss you John Gaisah...

This is a classic wedding song from John Gaisah, and it is still being played or performed at every Kadazan-Dusun wedding receptions in Sabah...

This is another John Gaisah classic - the song tells about a drunken man coming home late at night and being scolded by his wife for his heavy drinking habit..!!!! I like this song!!!
