The Bagan Serai native is the youngest in his family. He told Bernama that when he was 13, he joined a competition in Universiti Sains Malaysia that offered a grand prize of RM1 million but his team suffered a defeat in that tournament.

It was only a minor setback as once he finished high school, he started to get to know other gamers and that was when he gained popularity among the international gaming community. He was only 19 years old at that time and was still studying in Universiti Multimedia in Melaka. He elaborated,

“When I was small… my whole family did not approve of my gaming interest. But I kept on playing. If your parents do not allow you to play games, you need to figure out the best way for you to continue on playing games.”
