Malaysian rapper and filmmaker Namewee had such a good experience shooting his new music video “Funny Action” in Singapore with local director Jack Neo earlier this year that he is hoping he can shoot his new movie in the city-state. “It’s a good place to take picture[s] and shoot [a] music video, because it’s clean. When asked whether the film could be controversial, the singer-director-actor, who first gained notoriety 10 years ago for a remixed version of the Malaysian national anthem on YouTube, replied, “I don’t think so.
Singaporean filmmaker Jack Neo is best known for producing hit films such as the “Ah Boys To Men” franchise as well as “Long Long Time Ago”. But very few young Singaporeans remember the “comedy king” during his Channel 8 “Gao Xiao Xing Dong” days.
Namewee will be performing for the first time in Singapore. Malaysian singer-songwriter Namewee, known for the Mandarin hit song, “Stranger In The North” featuring Wang Lee Hom, will be having a concert on 3 February 2018 at The Star Performing Arts Centre at 8pm, concert organiser Mode Entertainment announced on Thursday (23 November).
