Zuheir Zaidon (25), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

“Hailing from the sunny-ville of Kuala Lumpur, this 25 year old heartthrob/model/phd candidate is an avid fan of folk music that ranges from classic country music of The Rascal Flatts to the eclectic folk of The Lumineers. Basically whatever the hipsters like ironically, he actually loves them. Rumour has it that he actually cried when he listened to the mandolin solo by the folk group Wake Owl during their Gold tour. Notwithstanding, his knowledge and passion for mainstream pop was acknowledged by his peers and his pop wisdom was even at one point compared to that of the teenage Buddha meditating under the Bodhi tree. This could be attributed to years of oppression by three sisters who are fanatic noughties pop fans. He was very vocal about Hannah Montana’s music transformations and might have played a pivotal role in the birth of Miley Cyrus’s ‘We Cant Stop’. Such rumour is yet to be debunked.”
