'Artista Academy's' Malak So Shdifat Should Change Her Name

SOMEONE should tell “Artista Academy” student Malak So Shdifat that she should change her screen name. There’s no way she’ll make it big in showbiz with that kind of alienating name. It has to be something more viewer friendly.

When she won at GMA’s ‘Are You the Next Big Star’, we told winner Frencheska Farr to change her screen name as it’s so weird and unconventional. She didn’t listen. Look at where she has gotten so far. This goes for other reality shows alumni like Geoff Taylor, Ian Batherson, Ivan Dorschner, and even Jewel Mische. Did their careers prosper with family names like that? It'll only work if you come from an established clan like the Eigenmanns.
