It’s heartbreaking to see how the long-overdue MCO has affected so many people’s jobs in the country, including those in the entertainment industry. Unable to earn a stable income, some of these celebs have resorted to other jobs in order to survive.
Word on the street has it that Kefli Idir, a contestant of the third season of “Akademi Fantasia”, is now working as a GrabFood rider! Speaking exclusively to Gempak, one netizen dished more on their unexpected encounter with the former reality TV star.
According to the GrabFood customer, “At that time, I was ordering my food as usual. Then, I saw Kefli’s name and face displayed on the app. As a loyal fan of ‘Akademi Fantasia’, of course I was shocked. When I wanted to place the order, I was convinced that it was Kefli, based on his voice. He informed that he left the drink that I ordered at the store.”
“He apologised to me several times, and I said, ‘It’s okay’. He also suggested for me to lodge a report to the company if he’s not happy about the incident. I didn’t have the heart to do so. So, I just let it slip,” the person added in the interview with the entertainment site.
“Everyone has their own struggles, and Kefli’s just trying to make an honest living. I hope he will be able to make his comeback to the local entertainment scene and pursue his career as an actor and also as a singer,” the anonymous insider ended his chat.
According to the local portal, Kefli (full name Mohd. Zulkefli Mohd. Idir) was a fan favourite during his time in the competition. However, he was eliminated in the ninth week, just a week prior to the grand finale.
Following his stint in the phenomenal reality TV show, the former singer then ventured into acting. He appeared in numerous dramas, namely “Berek” and “Impian Laili”.
