KUALA LUMPUR: Shah Indrawan Ismail a.k.a. Tomok is often identified by his short-cropped, school-boyish hairdo, but of late, he has been raising eyebrows disguising himself as a woman.
And his “partner-in-crime” happens to be award-winning actor known for his gritty and intense roles — Beto Kusyairy.
Over the last few days, Tomok has been sharing a couple of photos of himself and Beto in “drag” on his Instagram account, making fans and followers wonder what the duo are up to.
In a news report today, Tomok said this was a gimmick to launch his new single Bekas Kekasih, written and composed by Aizat Amdan.
“We recorded this crazy, funny music video together a month ago. It’s my first time ‘being a woman’ — strange and weird but a good experience to remember by, and it’s all part of the funny story that is my song!”
Tomok added that the music video was his brainchild, and its director Rosli helped contribute funny ideas to improve it further.
The music video was uploaded on YouTube at 11.09am today, with the song set for a digital release at midnight.
Tomok said fans should watch the music video from beginning to end.
“It highlights a lot of contemporary issues facing society today.”
Bekas Kekasih is the first single taken from Tomok’s new album to be released next year.
Meanwhile, Tomok will perform at Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (DFP), KLCC, on Nov 28 with his fellow Mentor participant Hanifah “Black” Hanafiah.
The concert titled “Tomok Vs Black”, features the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO). It is part of the orchestra’s 20th anniversary celebration.
Tickets are priced between RM80 and RM100. Visit mpo.com.my for further details.
