Local fashion designer Dato’ Rizalman Ibrahim recently gained attention when a netizen named him as Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM)’s new board member to replace Vivy Yusof.
A Twitter user @FarhuntFadil recently shared a screenshot of the Penang-born style icon’s educational background online. To everyone’s amusement, Rizalman is actually a graduate of Arts and Design (Fashion) from UiTM himself!

“This one is truly the REAL alumni. A highly respected and successful figure,” the netizen captioned the tweet. To date, the post has obtained over 14,000 retweets online, with most of them agreeing with his opinion.
For those interested, Rizalman has also excelled in other branches of his career. This includes being an interior designer, event manager and even a TV personality. As aforementioned, the replies section has been flooded with massive reactions from local internet users.
Most of them pointed out that the 49-year-old is indeed one of the most suitable candidates to fill in the spot. Not only that, some even expressed their hopes that the University will consider their proposal for Rizalman’s election in the UiTM’s board of directors.
Prior to this, a petition was launched by the UiTM’s alumni association which aims to dismiss the dUCk cosmetics founder from her position as one of its board members.
