PETALING JAYA: Singer-songwriter Yuna is off the market. The Los Angeles-based entertainer announced that she is engaged to boyfriend Adam Sinclair.

The 30-year-old singer shared the happy news through her local label Yuna Room Records.

The engagement ceremony took place at Yuna’s family home in Shah Alam.

“Syukur Alhamdulillah. It was a beautiful engagement. I was very happy that everything went smoothly and we had all of my family members and best friends attending the event.

“The house was decorated beautifully and we were very happy to host his lovely family in our home. I would like to thank all the fans for their well wishes and their prayers,” Yuna said in a press statement.

Yuna also described him as her “best friend”.

“This is the first step to getting married and I’m so happy that I found Adam.

“He has brought so much joy and laughter into my life and I’m very excited to embark on this new journey with him,” she added.

A few hours before the engagement ceremony, Yuna posted a photo on Instagram, posing at what appears to be decorations of a Malay wedding ceremony.

With the caption: “We came a long way, didn’t we?”, fans flooded the post with congratulatory messages.

Rumours about the pair dating started in 2015.

In the press statement, it stated that Yuna and Adam met on the set of a television commercial in 2013.

On March 27, they made plans for an engagement after a merisik ceremony.

Kedah-born Yuna made her debut as a singer through the release of her eponymous EP in 2008.

In 2011, she was signed to New York-based label Fader and released Live Your Life, a single produced by Pharrell Williams in the following year.

She later joined renowned producer David Foster’s Verve Music Group.

This year, she was recognised as the first Malaysian to be nominated for a Black Entertainment Television award for her song Crush featuring Usher.

Adam, the younger brother of Malaysian actor Ashraf Sinclair and radio deejay Aishah Sinclair, is a 33-year-old local director who has won the Malaysia Film Festival award for Best Short Film through his work Sanzaru in 2012.

His other notable works include Bunga’s Wanita Terbahagia music video and Pulang, a Yuna music video.
