Malaysian singer Namewee, who courted controversy with his satirical song Fragile, has become a millionaire overnight from the sale of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Last month, his duet with Australian singer Kimberley Chen went viral due to its barbed references to Chinese leader Xi Jinping and sensitive topics such as censorship, Covid-19 and the Uighurs. Its pink-themed music video, which featured a panda, is seen as a dig at Little Pinks, or nationalistic Chinese netizens.
