PETALING JAYA: Looking very much like scenes out of a Kollywood movie, the elaborate 21st birthday bash of a young Datuk has got his online fans in fits of ecstasy after a video of the memorable milestone was recently posted on the young man’s Facebook account.
Datuk Muhammad Saiful Muhamad Ali received the Darjah Indera Mahkota Pahang award in 2015, and is a director of numerous companies.
In the approximately six-minute video, Muhammad Saiful is seen sporting gold rings on his fingers, an earring in his left ear, and an immaculately tailored suit to complement his perfectly coiffed gravity-defying hairdo as he makes his way to this birthday party in a jet.
Upon touching down, he and an older gentleman, presumably his father, are whisked away to the grand event in nothing less than a Rolls Royce.
Once inside, the festivities erupt with all the pomp and grandeur befitting that of a young Datuk as scantily-clad women gyrate to dance tunes and silat performers take to the stage.
The young Datuk himself is ushered into the hall by kompang performers, his escorts and even a larger-than-life action hero.
The over-the-top birthday bash culminates in a traditional cake-cutting on stage.
The video itself, viewed over 300,000 times drew praises from many who posted their comments, with some saying the whole event was “ridiculously good”, “mind-blowing” and “awesome”.
One Facebook user said that with the young Datuk’s 21st birthday party being so elaborate, he could only imagine the grand scale with which the young man’s wedding and reception would be celebrated when the time came.
According to Muhammad Saiful’s Facebook biography, he lists singing and acting as his personal interests. “Acting And Singing Has Been My Passion … Tho It Cant Be Out Now But Soon I Will Fulfill My Wishes,” he says.
While it is up to him to make his dreams come true, there is one thing he can be sure of – a ready fan base waiting to lap up his every performance.
