Neelofa’s popularity rose dramatically after she won the 2011 Dewi Remaja competition and has been constantly booming since the establishment of her hijab brand, Naelofar Hijab.
In addition, the #Lofatah phenomenon after the end of hit TV drama series Suri Hati Mr Pilot has also became one of the factors that contributed to the increasing number of followers.
Previously, in August 2014, Nora Danish became the first artist to hold a Malaysian celebrity record with the most followers on Instagram, with a total of 1 million followers at the time.
