1,000 attend ‘future richest man’ banquet in M'sia: Only those with the 'right look' allowed in

About 1,000 people turned up for a charity dinner in Penang, despite the requirements: To sport the 'right look' and pay $64 (RM200) per person for entry.

The dinner is believed to have been organised by Chinese national Zhang Jian, the man who calls himself the “future richest man in the world”.

People who attended the dinner at Chai Leng Park on Sunday (June 4) were promised a SGD$323 (RM1,000) incentive, but only if they sported the “right look”.

Other than the RM200 entry fee, only those who had their hair dyed yellow or gold were allowed to enter.

Most of the diners arrived in non-Penang registered vehicles, while some showed up in chartered buses.

Hundreds of members, mostly from China, also attended one of the dinners according to media reports.

Some of the female guests arrived with their heads shaved, while others had tattoos of Zhang to show their support.

Several male guests also allegedly wore dresses to the dinner, reports The Star.

Journalists were not allowed to enter the community hall. 

Zhang, however, was not seen at the dinner despite allegedly being the organiser and some company members said he was in the Maldives.

He also reportedly organised similar charity dinners in Johor Baru, Kuala Lumpur as well as in Sabah.

According to multiple Chinese dailies, Zhang’s multi-level marketing company is said to be organising several dinners in Malaysia in a bid to make a comeback.
