They have the looks and street cred. Beyond that, they’re multi-talented, having conquered the red carpet and taken ownership of social media. They act, host, sing, direct and produce. In this celebrities’ edition of 20 Good Men of 2020, Her World presents a talent-stacked list who are making their mark in Singapore, China, Taiwan and India.
These days, Benjamin Kheng is feeling on top of the world. In June, he released his debut EP, A Sea That Never Stops – a series of six self-written songs comprising soul stirring ballads and funky synth-pop beats.
And the 29-year old artiste is currently busy with The Benzi Project, a Youtube series. It satirises social issues in Singapore and packages serious messages into humorous episodes.
This year, he proposed to his fiancee, actress and host Naomi Yeo, after dating for over a year. The pair met through work. “It was the scariest sh*t I’d ever done. Especially the moment when I realised that it’s a thing you should only do once in your life,” Benjamin gushes.

Benjamin admits he’s more grown-up now. The singer-songwriter notes that he’s also no longer as insecure and rash as he used to be. “When I was younger, I dealt with criticism very badly. I even threatened to quit,” he shares. “But these days, I welcome criticism. I’m way less anxious now – life’s too massive and I shouldn’t be worrying about my image that much.”
