Saiful Apek - Lead actor
The greatest problem that this writer had to prepare the Persona column this time was not to get a successful artist but to get a human photo of a man named Saiful Apek in serious pose! Understanding the hilarious Saiful or his real name Saiful Azam Mohd Yusoff. All his actions will get you in stitches.
But honestly, Apek admits that he's not a 24/7 comedian. As a committed man to the work of art on stage or behind the scenes especially with the formation of his own production company, Gitu-Gitu Productions Sdn Bhd, this Selangor born has very big appetite for success and high hopes of developing the local film industry.
From his appearance, this actor, comedian, singer and host is truly conceited. His long hair is either tied in a ponytail or let loose. He loves wearing hats and is never seen without his glasses.
Interestingly Saiful actually has two dates of birth. On his birth certificate and identification, it is stated as 15 August 1969 but in actual fact, his birthday falls on 12 May 1969.
This mix up arose when he was forced to be given up for adoption on 13 May 1969 due to inevitable circumstances and his birth was registered later.
All those are old stories, at the age of 21, Saiful finally managed to trace his natural parents.
In terms of acting, of late, Saiful's face is seen in the comedy produced by Metrowealth Movies, Anak Mami Kembali. This light comedy successfully revived Saiful's funny character.
And so this is the awe of this artist whose undiscovered talent was first seen on the first season of Sinaran Pasport Kegemilangan in 1994 on TV3.
Besides that, Saiful also appeared in several other films like Senario The Movie (1999), Senario Lagi (2000), Lagi-Lagi Senario (2001) and Lang Buana(2002).
Always a fighter, among the awards which he has garnered, Gold VCD Award (Konsert Pop Orkestra KL Bersama Senario VCD which sold more than 25,000 units), Double Platinum Award (Senario 2 Album which sold more than 100,000 units), Platinum Award (Senario 3 Album which sold more than 50,000 units), Berita Harian Most Popular Artist Award 2001 (Best Group).
Known as the Most Popular Male Comedian and Most Popular Artist ABP-BH 2002, Apek's popularity is proven. The question is will Saiful continue to reign in the next ABP-BH?
