KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) --He may be only four, but Aqfierudzar Rizq Mohd Sulhie is already making a name in the wayang kulit world.

He earned the title of tok dalang (wayang kulit puppet master and storyteller) two months ago, while performing in the programme ‘Joyful Malaysia’ at the lobby of Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA 2). The programme, which ran from a month starting Sept 9, was organised by the Kelantan Tourism Information Centre (TIC) with the cooperation of the Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad (MAHB).

His father Mohd Sulhie Yusof, said the audience, particularly foreign tourists, were enthralled by his son’s ability to tell a captivating story while manoeuvring wayang kulit puppets from behind a white screen.
