JAKARTA: Comedian Muchtar Lutfi, popularly known as Oppie Kumis, says that he will entertain orphans during the upcoming New Year’s Eve festivities.
“For me, its not always about finding ways to make money. These kids need cheering up. So, I decided to entertain them with jokes [on New Year’s Eve],” the middle-aged comedian said, as quoted by kapanlagi.com.
He said that he would perform in an orphanage in Bekasi, east of Jakarta, on Dec. 31.
Oppie went on to reveal that he had received offers to perform his comedic act at other New Year’s Eve celebrations, but he rejected them in favor of the orphans.
“I’m not getting paid. Sometimes, I just want to make people happy with no money involved,” he said.
