On Wednesday (21 September), local rapper and entrepreneur Caprice took to his official Instagram account to announce a giveaway worth RM10,000 of petrol to the public and all they have to do is to bring their vehicles to a designated petrol station in Kuala Lumpur on Friday (23 September).

It is understood that the giveaway applies to all vehicles, whether bus, van, car or motorcycle, and the location is at Petronas Jalan Jelatek II, Kampung Datuk Keramat in Kuala Lumpur.

In addition, the first 10 recipients will also receive limited edition merchandise, a cap or shoes from the rapper.

As the giveaway starts at 2.30 pm, Caprice reminded Muslim men to perform their Friday prayers first before queuing for free petrol. He added that he would turn away anyone queuing for the free petrol during prayer hours.

The event received a tremendous response from netizens, with many expressing gratitude for his kindness.

As much as a good response from netizens, the giveaway has also caused massive traffic along Jalan Jelatek II, with hundreds of people turning up happily to fill their vehicles with free petrol.

A video of the traffic mayhem has since circulated on TikTok, and the man behind the video can be heard complaining about the traffic caused by Caprice’s free petrol giveaway.

The rapper apologises

Caprice has apologised to all road users at Titiwangsa, Setiawangsa, and Keramat until Ampang over the traffic congestion caused by his giveaway.

He explained that he did not expect to receive such a tremendous response from netizens which led to the havoc on the road until it reached KLCC.

He added that although he requested help from RELA and the police, the traffic was just too much for them to handle.

Even more so, the petrol station ran out of petrol and had to be closed temporarily although there was still a long queue.

With this, Caprice also extend his apology to government servants, such as nurses and soldiers, who didn’t get the opportunity to fill their vehicles.

He also promise to hold another giveaway just for government servants and delivery riders in Kuala Lumpur and Penang next week. “Please pray for my team to get many things to treat the rakyat,” he said.
