Madame Tussauds Singapore has unveiled Agnez Mo as the first Indonesian celebrity wax figure to join the walk of fame at the attraction.
The multi-talented songwriter, music producer, actress, dancer, and model, who is also known as a fashion icon and a businesswoman, attended the launch event to reveal her figure.
“I am really honoured to be invited to have my own figure, as Madame Tussauds is such an iconic place to be at. It gives me the opportunity to let people around the world learn about my work, and my story – that it is about a girl who has a dream, and who has the tenacity to make it happen. That my art and my purpose in life is not about fame, but it’s about creating a legacy,” says Agnez, who used to be known as Agnes Monica in the past.
Elaine Quek, Head of Sales and Marketing, Madame Tussauds Singapore also shares her excitement on the latest addition to the attraction. “We are indeed privileged to have such a talented star to be a part of our attraction. We hope this will attract fans from all over the world to come and experience the excitement.”
Agnez’s wax figure sitting, which took place back in 2019, took a total of four hours to finish. The initial launch was delayed due to the pandemic. After a two-year wait, 50 lucky fans from Singapore and the region, were treated to an exclusive preview where they saw the wax figure for the first time. The fans meet-&-greet session, co-organised by Madame Tussauds Singapore with Sentosa Islander, also gave the fans a chance to meet Agnez in person and take photos with her and her figure.
The outfit which Agnez has selected for her wax figure is by Nepalese-American designer Prabal Gurung and depicts one of her many looks that has evolved over time, often influenced by her life experiences. Agnez likes to experiment with fashion, especially one that juxtaposes two different looks into an effortless style. She cites the iconic Audrey Hepburn and Aaliyah as her inspirations – strong women who know what they want and how to get it. This is evident in her many achievements, as not only is she the most awarded artist in Asia with a total of 350 awards, she is also an anti-drug and anti-human trafficking ambassador in Asia.
