Tun M Starts TikTok-ing at 95 with #ImJustAKid Challenge; Writes “Still Young” in Bio

If you thought that TikTok is only for unemployed young people, think again! The stereotype has officially been debunked by 95-year-old, former-Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed who finally opened up his own TikTok account with a bio that reads “Still Young”.

His account (@chedetofficial) has garnered over 41,000 followers and 135,800 likes after he posted his first video of him and his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, performing the viral ‘I’m just a kid challenge’.


In the under-one-minute video, captioned “64 and still going strong”, the couple struck a pose to recreate a picture of themselves when they were younger. The video has now 1.1 million views.

According to The Star, to celebrate the couple’s 64th anniversary, this video might serve as a tribute to Dr Sri Hasmah.

Age is really just a number when you’re young at heart. Aside from a TikTok account, Tun M also has an active Twitter account under the same username (@chedetofficial) with 1.2 million followers.

Maybe we’ll see a TikTok collaboration between Tun and Syed Saddiq in the near future…

Stay young with JUICE.
