ARTISTE Dayang Nurfaizah (pic) does not feel the need to share her personal life on social media, Kosmo! reported.
“I admit I’m not really active on social media. I only use it to share matters related to my career. I’m comfortable not sharing my personal life with the public,” Dayang said.
“Other celebrities might be more open to social media. It’s a person’s right to behave how they want, so let’s leave it at that.”

Dayang is returning to the fore with her new single Layarlah Kembali, which is featured on the soundtrack for the film Pulang.
