Syed Saddiq has finally done it, y’all!
The Muar MP fulfilled his promise to have his head shaved bald after successfully meeting the contribution target of RM200,000 for his “One Family, One Laptop” campaign. For those wondering, the campaign managed to raise a contribution of RM383,000 within five days.
Malaysians were also able to witness the moment as it was broadcasted live on Astro AWANI last night. During the session, the youth icon recalled his past experience of having his mom cut his hair when he was six years old. Interestingly enough, the latter was also spotted making her special appearance, where she spent more than 20 minutes snipping and shaving his hair.
The replies section has been flooded with tons of remarks left by local netizens. In this case, a lot of them praised him for his effort in assisting the people in his constituency. Others, on the contrary, were left amused. Some even compared Syed Saddiq’s brand new look to the character Aang (from “Avatar: The Last Airbender”), in addition to other notable characters!
Take a look at some of their responses below:
When you were first running for the elections I scoffed at you thinking you were just a show off young boy who is Wannabe Politician. You have since won me over with your hard work, sincerity and sometimes dare to speak up for the people moments. Well done YB.

A 100 year’s passed and my brother and I discovered a new Avatar. An airbender named Syed Saddiq. And although his airbending skills were great, he had a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone. https://t.co/uMk27QXIrv
