Ladies and gentlemen, did you know that other than being our national shuttler, Lee Zii Jia is also a budding rapper and singer?

Yes! When Lee is not training for badminton, he spends his time in front of a microphone singing his heart out.

Uploading all his covers on Douyin – China's equivalent of TikTok — Lee has over two dozen videos of him singing songs of various genres.

Sometimes, Lee is an acoustic cover artiste, serenading his followers with his voice while playing the guitar; other times, he is a rap god, hitting every beat and enunciation.

His last video was him rapping a trap song.

Lee uses the handle 'KOBEH98' on Douyin, a name that can be seen as a homage to one of his favourite athletes Kobe Bryant, while '98' is his birth year

As of writing, the 23-year-old has 55,000 followers on Douyin, a number that is far below his followers on Instagram — which has 705,000.

It is time to get on the video-sharing platform to support our national shuttler's singing and rapping side career!

In the comment section of his latest video, many netizens called on Lee to quickly upload a new video as the last cover he did was on 29 May

His followers are pretty demanding. ;p

Hundreds of them called Lee their 'baby' in the comments section too.

Some netizens lauded him for playing well in the Olympics, while others praised him for having a multitude of talents

A top comment even suggested he participate in The Rap of China after he has returned from the Olympics.
