Comedian (aka Preetipls)
Preeti Nair (who goes by the moniker Preetipls) may have gone viral thanks to a certain controversial video in 2017, but this “Queen of Satire” is more than that. Unabashedly real, the comedian and internet sensation uses humour to tackle serious social issues like racism, body positivity, LGBTQ+ and migrant worker rights, and wildlife conservation on her YouTube channel. She also has killer rap remixes and singles under her kitty including the catchy “E8”, “Thicc” and “Ooru” featuring rapper (and her brother) Subhas.
When the number of Covid-19 cases in the migrant worker community was at its peak, Preeti rose to the occasion by starting a crowdfunding campaign with an activist collective. Together, they raised about $346,000 to support organisations dedicated to aiding the migrant community. She currently runs a fundraiser where proceeds from the sale of her “Pet Thicc” t-shirts go to Causes for Animals SG and Cat Welfare Society Singapore.
