The victory of Volodymyr Zelenskiy, a popular comedian turned Ukraine President on Sunday, the 21st of April 2019 provided more evidence on how celebrities have a unique advantage in politics.
Volodmyr and former reality TV star Donald Trump aren’t the first celebrities to enter the world of politics and judging by current events, will probably not be the last.
Seeing the potential that celebrities have by using their star power to get elected for office, Nobleman Creation’s Digital Marketing research outfit conducted a quick analysis to find 5 Malaysian celebrities that can potentially land them an elected post in the future: 1. Siti Nurhaliza (90,000+) 2. Neelofa (70,000+) 3. Yuna (60,000+) 4. Aiman Tino (40,000+) 5. Fattah Amin (30,000+)
The popularity level of the five celebrities listed was gauged based on the average volume of their names being searched on Google on a monthly basis.
The five celebrities listed were among the 300 celebrity profiles that have been sifted through for the purpose of conducting this analysis.
It is interesting to note that the average volume of Google searches for prominent Malaysian lawmakers do not vary greatly in comparison to the Top 5 most popular celebrities listed above. 1. Anwar Ibrahim (110,000+) 2. Mahathir Mohamad (90,000+) 3. Syed Saddiq (90,000+) 4. Lim Guan Eng (60,000+) 5.Khairy Jamaluddin (33,000+)
