This question would be as difficult to answer as who invented music, simpletons would accept the claim that some westerner 'found' Singapore, however it should be taken into consideration that the island has been in use ages before that, it has a mixed Indian-Chinese trade characteristics to it, the name itself suggests it was known as Sinha-pur pointing to Indian heritage, while the population is largely chineese pointing to central Asian heritage. there are no records as how long has it been used as a port.

Sang Nila Utama founded Singapore but Sir Stamford Raffles is the founder of modern Singapore.

Juinano: However, Major William Farquhar was the major contributor to Singapore's success. Raffles just signed the treaty and left soon after, only to return at intervals to check on progress. Thus, most of Singapore's success is attributed to Major William Farquhar. Thus, he should be the rightful ruler of Singapore.
