Kuok scion picks music over palm oil

MUSIC IS IT: Kuok Meng Ru, 28, runs the startup BandLab with a partner. He also bought guitar and audio equipment distributor Swee Lee in 2012.


KUOK Meng Ru didn't spend much time with his billionaire father when he was growing up.

As the third child of an agri-business tycoon, he was sent off to a British boarding school at 10; he graduated later from Cambridge University with a degree in mathematics.
