The spotlight is on Cleopatra (real name Nur Fathiah Syazwana Shaharuddin) after several huge controversies. The director of Cleo International is back to business leading the youth initiative.
The director of the little-known firm made headlines last week, when she was granted audience with the Youth and Sports Minister, Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman.
Considering that the company, Cleo International, was found out to be barely a week old during the time of meeting, many have questioned the capability and knowledge of the firm to even pitch a youth initiative – let alone lead it.
In a recent short interview with Malay Mail, Cleopatra, 25, explained her position within the new company and the current situation with local gaming firm, Orange E-sports, who, she invited to the meeting as well.
“I am the one who pitched the project and I am the leader. I am the one who invited Orange to be part in my meeting.” Cleopatra said before continuing. “And I haven’t signed any contract with Orange to be my partner in my project.”
Esports Business Network Sdn Bhd (Parent company of Orange E-sports), on the other hand, has clarify their position in the meeting. They explained that they were invited by Cleo International to meet with the Minister to pitch “a holistic youth driven initiative that included e-sports amongst other core youth development pillars.”
They further explained that, their role within the meeting was solely focus on the e-sport planning and execution side of the discussion. They also added, that they have no further role within the project beside being the e-sport pillar’s service provider.
Cleopatra has also stated that she is now the sole director of the company. Previous records showed that Mohamad Shahid A. Samad, 42, held the same position within the company. Cleopatra later stated that Shahid’s name has been removed from director, due to it being originally a mistake. Along the other mistake (both share the same residential address) has been rectified.
Heavy claims of bias and power abuse was thrown at Syed Saddiq’s way, especially in light of Cleopatra public initiation to his party, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, was made public. However, Cleopatra has stated that she did wish to answer these questions at this time.
