Dato’ Mizal Zaini or fondly known as AC Mizal, is an actor, singer, comedian, and former FM radio station in Malaysia. AC Mizal was once the lead singer for the allboys’ band 4U2C, winning him the Most Popular Group Artist award in 1997 besides claiming other Platinum Awards in Malaysia and Singapore.
