TOSH ZHANG 张智扬
Tosh first burst onto the YouTube scene in late 2010 with a short vlog about food that received thousands of views, something which Tosh was not used to at the time. This motivated him to put up more vlogs and slowly but surely he started to build a loyal online following and a strong presence on social media.
Tosh's style of raw and uncut commentary on everything from social and political issues to women with armpit hair and people with body odour has earned him the fan-given title of being the "realest YouTuber in Singapore".
Tosh climbed to fame through the Jack Neo's movies Ah Boys To Men 1 and Ah Boys to Men 2, starring as the fierce and sarcastic Platoon Sergeant Ong. With a passion for acting, film making and music which includes composing, writing, breakdancing and rapping, Tosh wrote, composed and performed the theme song of the movie, aptly entitled 'Recruit's Anthem'; which has garnered over 2.2 million views on YouTube. The talented young star also composed and wrote ABTM 2's theme song 'Brothers', which has hit over 1.6 million views on Youtube. Tosh reunited with the cast of Ah Boys to Men on stage in 2020, as they entertained the nearly 700-strong audience at Re:Mix Getai 2020, organized by the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre.
From Ah Boy to the Lion Man - Tosh took on a leading role In Jack's new movie The Lion Men where he plays a confident two-time lion dance champion, nicknamed Supreme or Lion God. Tosh and the rest of his cast had to go through three months of intensive lion dance and martial arts training. This was no easy feat for Tosh who had a fear of heights. Once again, Tosh contributed to the movie soundtrack, co-writing the lyrics of the movie theme song with Jack Neo, and is the lead rapper.
Tosh is also the winner of The New Paper ‘Breakout Star of 2012’. This award winner strives to leave a legacy and inspire the future generations.
Aside from acting, Tosh has moved on to host Chinese Travelogue for both MediaCorp and Starhub simultaneously with Ah Boys to Men co-star, Wang Weiliang - 叽里咕噜闯天下 Lingo Tango and我们去相亲Let's Go Dating.
In 2016 Tosh also became the first ever Ambassador for Polar Puffs & Cakes.
Tosh also wrote a cult-hit Hokkien rap song named 'LimPeh' with ShiGGa Shay and it was on the #1 spot on iTunes Singapore chart within the first day of release. In 2018, he released his first single “Wihayo” and most recently, “呆在家”.
In 2016, Tosh landed himself as the lead actor in local film, My Love Sinema, directed by Tan Ai Leng, who first earned the New Talent Feature Film Grant from the Singapore Film Commission in December 2012. In Nov 2017, Tosh continued to play the lead role of Sergeant Ong in the 4th installation of the Ah Boys To Men series. Over the years, Tosh has gone on to star in several series, such as the online series So Bright 2, The Wedding Survival Handbook, Mediacorp Suria’s Bujang Hantar and most recently, Oak 3 Films’ Titoudao.
