1. Ming Jun Kuok: The grandson of Malaysia’s richest man, Robert Kuok, who has a net worth of $11.7 billion.
If his name rings a bell, you probably remember him from the third season of Singapore Idol. Like his media-shy grandfather, Kuok is relatively low profile, but made headlines when he pulled out of the competition in 2009 due to “personal reasons”.
Nonetheless, the Stanford University graduate has not stopped chasing his dreams and has even released his first EDM single “Into The Wild” last year.
