Hirzi Zulkiflie

Ahmad Hirzi Zulkiflie (born June 24 1989) is a YouTube Star based in Singapore. He is best known as being one-half of the duo Munah & Hirzi alongside Munah Bagharib, and as the co-founder of their accompanying YouTube channel, MunahHirziOfficial.


Hirzi graduated from Temasek Polytechnic with a Diploma in Communications and Media management. It was there that he met his YouTube partner, Munah Bagharib.[2] He then furthered his studies at Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, which is partnered with Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore to offer a two-year degree program in creative producing at the Ngee Ann campus in Singapore.[3]


Munah & Hirzi (2008 - 2018)

Hirzi and Munah co-founded the MunahHirziOfficial YouTube channel on October 26, 2008. On December 3, 2008, they posted their first video titled "The X Commandments of a Cross-Dresser" to the channel.[4]

Their first video series, titled "10 Dares", was inspired by the French movie "Love Me If You Dare". The movie featured a couple daring each other, which spurred the duo to film videos of themselves doing ridiculous things that they had already been doing offline. Initially, the series was just meant to be shared between their circle of friends. However, they unintentionally managed to garner a much wider audience.[5] Soon, they were uploading videos regularly and growing a fanbase online. As of June 2019, they have more than 149k subscribers on YouTube.[6]

In early 2018, the duo announced their intention to go their separate ways and focus on their individual careers.

Their YouTube channel still remains available as of June 2019 and the most recent video was uploaded on March 11, 2019 titled "I AM ME PARODY (Interstitials from Munah Hirzi Live Finale Show)".[7]

Hirzi was born in Malaysia on June 24, 1989 and his astrological sign is Cancer. He eventually moved to Singapore pursue his education.[1]

In 2017, two Singaporean men were detained in Abu Dhabi for cross-dressing and behaving inappropriately. As a response to the incident, Munah & Hirzi posted a tweet directly addressing the Twitter accounts of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Minister of Foreign Affairs Vivian Balakrishnan to help these Singaporeans.[39]

In 2018, Hirzi and local television personality Fakkah Fuzz were met with criticism for a video they had filmed at the Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Horror Nights 8. Many thought that the way Hirzi and Fakkah had interacted with the scare actors were inappropriate and disrespectful as they had responded to the scare actors by mocking them. One of the scare actors took to social media to express the hurt that she and her fellow actors felt. She added that actions portrayed in the video may even encourage more members of the public to follow suit.[40]
