Popular Malaysian singer Shila Amzah, 32, recently made headlines after announcing her engagement to 25-year-old social media influencer Ubai MZ.

According to reports, the couple is expecting to get married sometime this year.

During a Q&A session with fans via Instagram Story on Tuesday (May 30), Shila revealed that her fiance feels pressured about financial matters as she has a much higher income than him.

“We had a lot of talk about (finances). He (felt) pressured to be honest, but I told him to keep working hard and to pray. For him to achieve what I have for the time being is not possible,” she wrote.

In her post, the Patah Seribu hitmaker made it clear that finance was not a big issue in their relationship.

In fact, Shila said that she sympathises with Ubai as he has to work so hard to match her income despite being so young.

“As long as we’re able to settle the alimony, insurance and future planning to buy a house, that’s already enough for now.

“He’s only 25, yet has to sprint to reach my (income) level. I have (advised him) to work hard. For now, I am satisfied with the blessings Allah SWT has given,” she said.

During the Q&A session too, the KL-born star also talked about the impact Ubai has made in her life.

When one fan asked the singer how she handles overthinking and anxiety, Shila responded: “It took a lot of reassurance (from) my partner. Ever since I (got together) with Ubai, I haven’t been on my meds for quite some time.

“I guess your environment does play an important role in (determining) what triggers your anxiety,” she said.

Shila confirmed her relationship with Ubai in a TikTok Live earlier in February.

It is reported that Shila and Ubai have been close since 2014.

Shila was previously married to a Malaysian man named Haris Idraki Elias in 2018. However, the relationship didn’t work out and ended with a divorce last February.

The former couple shares a son, Seth Uwais, who turns four this August.
