If you’re new to TikTok or just wants to check out the top Tiktok influencers in Malaysia, this is the list for you!
We made sure to cater to every interest. If you’re a foodie, there’s a suitable Tiktok account for you to follow. If you like animals, there’s an account for you. If you like makeup, there’s an account for you.
Here’s 24local’s own Tiktok where we share food reviews, interesting places to visit, and other fun things to do!
Without further ado, let’s check out the list.
Ceddy calls himself the CEO of Makan Makan because if you’re a Malaysian and a foodie but doesn’t know who he is, I will throw my nasi lemak at you. Just kidding. But please DO NOT think that is the only thing he’s made a name for himself for. Because that might land you on his bad list. Trust me, you do not want to get on Ceddy’s bad side. Just ask US Pizza!
Ceddy is also a streamer and a Twitch affiliate. Recently, Ceddy was also invited to witness the launch of Bonia’s grand opening.
2. Ivor Xian Z
Ivor is known for “trying things so you don’t have to”.
If you don’t get what that means, basically Ivor is the girl who spends her money going to places and paying for experiences so us pokai (broke) people don’t have to. But we get to see how its like on her TikTok without having to pay for it ourselves. If you like what you see, you can always go and enjoy it yourself.
Thank you for your service, Ivor.
3. Ryan Howlett
Now Ryan is not a Malaysian. He’s British. Just like Mark O’Dea (another social media influencer), Ryan has made a name for himself, especially on TikTok. Ryan’s TikTok started going viral when he posted videos comparing British and Malaysian things on his account.
And when the floods hit, Ryan was one of the good souls who went to help the flood victims.
4. Azroy Manaf
If your first reaction reading his name is: Who? You and me both. That’s because Azroy is not the star of his TikTok videos. His lambs are. More affectionately and well known as: KambingYangAneh (Weird Lamb).
Azroy posts almost everyday, showcasing his weird lambs antics. It’s really funny because he usually accompanies his videos with his funny commentary in the background.
5. BFM Radio
I bet this is an “influencer” you did not see coming. But this could be the most educational and most beneficial account for you to follow in this list.
