Today I would like to introduce a figure named Natapol Puthpawana, or Toe. Toe is the former lead singer of the iconic Thai rock band Silly Fools, famous in the 90’s. But he has since quit the band and shunned entertainment and fame as he practices Islam.

I watched the following interview with him at 4am today and it got me thinking a lot about what he says and the way he explains certain things.
What interests me is not his embracing of Islam, but how he is keeping his belief to himself as he adjusts himself out of the entertainment industry in a manner people around him would consider “radical”, completely ditching music, including the master recording of the unreleased songs he last made.
