Nur Sajat is scheduled to make her debut on “The Ellen Show” early next year. The celebrity transwoman announced the happy news on her TikTok over the weekend.
In the 44-second clip, the cosmetics entrepreneur – who is now based in Australia – shared that she will be flying to America next year. “Okay, I’m going to the US in January to be interviewed on ‘The Ellen Show’,” said Sajat, in her cute pink Barbie top.
If the interview with TV star Ellen DeGeneres goes as plan, Sajat will be the second Malaysian celebrity, following Henry Golding’s appearance when he promoted “Crazy Rich Asians” in 2018. Sadly, Sajat will likely be the last Malaysian to appear on “The Ellen Show” since the show is currently in its final season.
Ever since Sajat’s Down Under move went viral, the 36-year-old online personality has been making international headlines and has even been interviewed by international media giants like the BBC. Despite the controversy that has followed her, Sajat’s story has brought awareness to the situation faced by the queer community (especially the trans community) in Malaysia.
In addition to the US, Sajat will also be visiting Singapore for work purposes. To echo what she said, Sajat is spreading her wings and achieving bigger things now that she has the freedom to do what she wants.
