Celebrate Indonesian Independence day with Joko Widodo at Madame Tussauds Singapore. The world famous wax attraction officially launched the world’s first figure of Indonesian President Joko Widodo. To ensure the figure has truly captured his resemblance, President Joko Widodo spent hours sitting with Madame Tussauds team last October to take over 200 measurements, identify exact eye and hair colour to create an exact likeness.
Born in 1961 in Surakarta (also known as Solo), central Java, Indonesia, President Joko Widodo was a governor of Jakarta from 2012 – 2014. He was elected the 7th President of Indonesia in October, 2014. Apart from implementing Jakarta Health Card (KJS) and Jakarta Smart Card (JKP) for citizens, President Joko Widodo is committed to enhance Indonesia’s infrastructure and achieve target during his term in office. In 2014, he was listed by Fortune as one of the ‘The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders’ and featured on the international cover of TIME Magazine’s October issue.
He and his family were pleased and pleasantly surprised with the finished figure when they came and meet President’s wax double in Madame Tussauds Hong Kong to launch his figure. The Wax Figure of President Joko Widodo can only be viewed in Madame Tussauds Singapore and Hong Kong.
President Joko Widodo will join other world leaders like President Soekarno, the former President of Indonesia, as well as prominent political leader such as Mahatma Ghandi in the World Leaders area of Madame Tussauds Singapore.
