Former Singapore Idol winner Taufik Batisah has a new job.
He is a property agent.
The 37-year-old is now a registered property agent under Propnex Realty Pte Ltd.
A check on his credentials on the Council for Estate Agencies website showed that his profile is indeed legit.
His records show that he has not yet clocked any transactions yet.
But that's because he is new to the industry.
Recent career switch?
Apparently, Taufik's new stint in real estate started pretty recently.
The pop singer-turned-agent joined the industry to work with his elder brother, who has been a housing agent for a while now, according to The Straits Times.

Life after Singapore Idol

He is also the country's biggest singing export after Stephanie Sun and JJ Lin, with more than 352,000 followers on Instagram.
Since winning Idol, Taufik has gone on to produce five studio albums, win numerous local and overseas awards and clinched a string of endorsements for international brands, such as Samsung and 7-Eleven.
Just last year, he even opened a fried chicken outlet.
He also posted a photo with his Mercedes Benz car on Instagram a few days ago.

Update, Sep. 23, 1.28am:
Taufik has not made a career switch, according to Hype Records, Taufik's management company.
A Hype representative said Taufik’s passion in his music and performing career remains his priority, as he dabbles in other unrelated areas: "Being an entrepreneur, he has decided to venture into his brother’s property business, of which might have triggered the misunderstanding."
"Similar to his F&B establishment, the property business is just another challenge that Taufik wishes to take on in his personal time."
