Due to our curiosity to find out who have the most followers in Malaysia, our team has decided to take up this task to identify 100 MALAYSIANS (by their no. of followers) who are shaping the landscape of Instagram in Malaysia.
While we do not say this is a 100% fully-covered list, it will almost give you a picture of who are at the top of the game in Instagram. As the no. of followers keep rising, we could only freeze the numbers on 23rd March 2015 with print screens as a benchmark. If we have missed out anyone, please help us out by dropping us your comment and we will update the list duly. Thank You!
