SULTRY actress Zahida Rafik (pic) has announced that she will be marrying a businessman next year, ending rumours of a relationship with a prominent politician.
Kosmo! quoted the 38-year-old as saying that her soon-to-be husband had known her for eight years.
“He is single, and we plan to tie the knot next year,” she declared.
Several years ago, Zahida made headlines due to speculations of her being in a relationship with a minister.
Further elaborating on the love of her life, the actress said he was from Johor and described him as “just an ordinary man”.
On her luxurious lifestyle, she stressed that she had worked hard not only as an actress but as a businesswoman involved in beauty products and foodstuff.
“I don’t mean to brag when I post things on Instagram, but I do love fashion and branded goods. What I have is rezeki (gift). I do not have any intention of showing off,” she said.
> Food stall operator Abdul Rahman Yusuf suspected that something was amiss when his regular clients claimed that they were “unable to find” his stall near Johor Baru’s Pekan Rabu.
But never did he think it was the work of black magic.
Harian Metro reported that one afternoon, Rahman and his wife Sopiah Mat Hussain were driving past their stall and were shocked to see a man, who operated a food stall nearby, sprinkling something around his stall.
“I stopped the car and saw him throwing salt and tumeric rice around my stall,” said Rahman.
“I immediately demanded an explanation but the man, who was caught unawares, tried to flee the scene,” he added.
Rahman, who has been operating the stall for 12 years, was upset that the fellow trader could not engage in healthy competition.
“He had once complained to me that his business was not as thriving as mine,” he said.
“But it never crossed my mind that he would resort to using black magic to kill my business,” he added.
