don't kill the buzz.
jangan matikan desas-desus/gosip/minat


Explanation:

translation in context: Don't kill the buzz. You have to keep the buzz moving. => Jangan matikan desas-desus/gosip ini. Kita perlu kekalkan minat tentangnya.

my rationale for the suggestion:

- the KIMD translation of buzz is gossip/desas-desus.

- in english buzz also implies excitement/actitivity due to interest. hence i think the word minat should be included in the translation.

don't kill the buzz.
Jangan Hentikan Desas Desus


Explanation:
Buz = Desas-desus (Malay)

Kill = Mati (Malay) But `mati` refers to dead person/abstract things. Hence, in this context, it means `Stop`(henti + malay suffix (kan): hentikan)
