This Young Datuk’s 21st Birthday Party Is Better Than Yours
A young Datuk has captured the attention of netizens with the video of his extravagant 21st birthday bash, which had gone viral on social media
In the video, the then-21-year-old Datuk Muhammad Saiful Muhamad Ali is seen donning a tailored-made maroon suit, gold rings on his fingers, and a pair of shades as he sips on a drink in a private jet with an elderly man.
Upon touching down, he and the older man - presumably his father - are whisked away to the event in a Rolls Royce.
Datuk Saiful is then ushered into a hall by his escorts, kompang performers, and a life-sized Optimus Prime
Once inside, belly dancers and singers took to the stage to entertain the guests while the young Datuk makes his way to his table with family members.
The event ended with a traditional cake-cutting ceremony.
Although the video was posted in 2016, it has since resurfaced on social media after Datuk Saiful reposted the clip on his Facebook page. At the time of writing, it has garnered over 350,000 views.
The video was produced by local film production company Golden Dreams GDU Film Style Videography.
Some netizens have started questioning how he could have obtained a datukship at such a young age
Others have defended Datuk Saiful, saying that he should be able to enjoy his wealth regardless of his age
Who is Datuk Muhammad Saiful Muhamad Ali?
According to Datuk Saiful’s Facebook biography, he lists singing and acting as his personal interests
Recently, he released a Tamil short film titled 'THU ORU PADAM #IOP'.
"A short film about the daily routines in an office environment exaggerated by interviews and staff antics. A conglomerate of romance, jealousy and as you can already tell, comedy," the description of the video reads.
