Influencer marketing is defined as using celebrities, persons, companies or organisations who have a significant online presence and follower size in order to influence decisions, thoughts, opinions and trends via their actions over mass media, particularly internet channels and social media.
Once a new concept to Singapore’s digital marketing scene, influencer marketing has now become a mainstay in many brands’ marketing strategies.
Influencer marketing blossomed from the emergence of social media platforms, whose popularity gave rise to a number of well received content creators–who we know as Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) and influencers! Their presence and clout on these platforms meant they could directly command and “influence” their audiences.
Brands saw an opportunity and decided to collaborate with some of these aspirational fashionistas, stunning makeup artists, and talented photographers, all in the hope of reaching and engaging thousands of consumers who relate and look up to these influencers.
In fact, in a publication made by SocialMediaToday, about 81 percent of marketers agreed that they have been using social media influencers to bolster their marketing effort and that it was one of the most effective marketing strategies they’ve ever employed.
Singapore just happens to be one of the countries where the word of an influencer could mean the difference between real business and failure for a mass market brand.
MediaOne has researched and rounded up 20 top influencers in Singapore. Our influencer list include Instagrammers, models, YouTubers, bloggers, DJs, entrepreneurs, reality TV stars, these are Singaporeans making waves on social media. Here is our compilation.
The Top 20 Influencers In Singapore As Compiled By MediaOne Are (not in order):
Dr. Leslie Tay
Yoyo Cao is a celebrated star in Singapore, widely known by her cross-platform social media handle, yoyokulala. She’s a fashionista, a trendsetter that devoted followers of fashion look up to. And her influence stretches far beyond Singapore to the Asian community at large.
Yoyo, also widely known by her handle, yoyokulala, is every modern fashionista’s Instagram inspiration both locally and internationally.
Yoyo stands out for her unique sense of style, one she’s proud to describe that she borrowed from the boy’s sartorial playbook. She has agreed that she dresses like a guy some times, but not in the literal sense of packing a man’s wardrobe. Her idea still has much of that, but what she means is that she borrows the idea that dressing well doesn’t necessarily mean going out of your way to stand out or working so hard to be ‘that girl.’
In other words, there’s no inner logic to how she dresses. She has a more individual sense of style, carefully balancing between simplicity and elegance, and the world loves her for it.
Yoyo Cao makes everything look so easy. Her tailored looks are far from try-hard, and everything she does or wears is an iconic signature that the world can’t help but emulate or take a cue from. Her tailored looks, and balanced sihlouettes are effortless, chic and iconically signature.
Her bold sense of choice, combined with her confidence to experiment with all sorts of styles has made her the darling of many major fashion brands such as Fendi, Gucci, Chanel, and Dior! Let’s also not forget that she has her own label, Exhibit Store, that brings modern “made in Asia” pieces to the fashion forward women of Singapore.
Brad Lau is a food blogger that rose to fame by leveraging on SEO. At a time when the term SEO was flying over the heads of even the most knowledgeable of the SEO experts you know today, Lau knew how to optimise his blog for SEO and secure topmost slots in SERPs.
That explains why his blog still ranks atop even today. Google for anything related to food or one of Singapore’s cuisines, and odds are Brad Lau’s blog will be among the top results presented.
So every time someone types something related to food, his blog pops up among the top results. Speaking of which, his blog still enjoys a tremendous amount of traffic through search engines even with minimal effort on his part.
Billed as one of Singapore’s most hardworking bloggers, Brad decided to also venture in the world of photography. He takes amazing photos, which opened doors for Instagram success, as well. Though he started his wildly popular website, Ladyironchef, as a personal project, it’s grown to a full-fledged online destination for foodies today!

Wendy Cheng a.k.a Xia Xue
Wendy Cheng, more affectionately known as Xia Xue, is a witty and fun blogger that’s still widely regarded as the reigning queen of Singaporean influencers. She also happens to be one of the most consistent bloggers in Singapore, attracting not less than 40,000 views per day, her words.
Even though she got into blogging as a way of killing time, her humble blogspot became the talk of Singapore when blogs were just becoming a thing! She now gets sponsored for almost everything she does. From annual car rentals to home renovations, there’s always a brand waiting to cash in on her popularity.
Wendy is a great example of how an influencer can be real, outspoken and even a little controversial, while still building a wide and consistent follower base. In a digital world where we’re all getting more savvy about how influencer marketing works, it pays to be authentic!
Wendy is also one of the most consistent bloggers around. A day hardly passes without her posting something new. Plus she’s just as controversial as she’s hardworking.
She’s one of the few bloggers who thrive on being authentic. She’ll say it as is, without sugar-coating anything or caring a wit if it’s shedding a bad light on her.

Christabel’s winning smile says it all. Look at her smile, and you wouldn’t need to ask why the world is so obsessed with her. She’s everything every girl aspires to be, and it’s so contagious.

Christabel Chua’s bubbliness and infectious personality hits you instantly–from her adorable Instagram handle bellywellyjelly to her smile, it’s easy to see why she’s loved by so many online. While she does work with a ton of fashion and beauty brands, the thing that many love about Christabel is her “girl next door” vibe that makes her feel like more of a friend than an influencer.
Everything seems to be ingrained in her DNA. A simple look at her Instagram handle, bellywellyjelly, tells you that Singapore loves her to bits.
Fashion brands love her too. And the best part is that none of this gets into her head. She’s still got that humble, next-door-girl vibe that somehow makes her easy to talk to and relatable.
After facing a major scandal early last year, she’s come back stronger than ever, being open about her life, her role as an influencer and how she navigates the two as a modern woman in Singapore.
