Social Media Influencer and FLY Entertainment Artiste
From the way she bounces into a room with the bright smile and bubbly “hello”, you can’t tell that Maimunah Bagharib is serious about what she does.
But behind the carefree personality is a prolific actress who has delivered vastly varied yet consistently inspiring performances – whether she’s exploring the unjust treatment of women in power as Ana in Teater Ekamatra’s Projek Suitcase, or a singing & dancing Chiobuu in the Broadway Beng 10th Anniversary concert. Maimunah also received critical acclaim for her performance in White Rabbit Red Rabbit, Nassim Soleimanpour's experimental improvisation piece. Maimunah’s entertainment career started in 2006 as one half of Youtube sensation MunahHirziOfficial, where she co-hosted satirical videos on social and political topics. If 30 million Youtube views isn’t enough testament of her presentation prowess, she also hosted the Asian TV Awards 2015.
Adventurous by nature, she was pushed to the limit as co-host of the Mediacorp travel show #MissAdventures – where she went from surviving an expedition to the world's largest cave in Vietnam to trekking up to a Base Camp in the Himalayas.
So, maybe you can’t tell that Maimunah Bagharib is serious about what she does. But only the most serious of performers can spread this much joy.
