S'pore comedy show 'mocks' Najib, infuriates local groups

(Updated )

Local artiste groups have taken aim at a Singaporean comedy show for allegedly mocking Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

They took issue with Channel 5's 'Ok Chope' programme in which a panel of comedians were asked to complete the headline of a news story involving Najib.

The panel, comprising Sam See, Najip Ali, Rishi Budhrani and Mike Kassim offered various tongue-in-cheek answers.

However, Persatuan Seniman Malaysia secretary-general Hafiz Nafiah has threatened to lodge a police report.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.

Support Malaysiakini
