DESPITE the constant questions regarding her relationship, singer Shiha Zikir (pic) is not rushing to settle down, although she has been in a relationship with her partner for 12 years, Kosmo! reported.
The 34-year-old said as a woman, she is tight lipped when it comes to speaking or sharing much about relationships and marriage with the public.
“In such matters, I am not brave enough to disclose anything as long as a ceremony has not been confirmed.
“It’s because I’m not the type to hastily pursue the topic of marriage and dislike breaking such news in a rush. However, if there are updates, I will definitely share them,” she said.
Her partner, Kamarul Arifin, 36, said he is also constantly asked when their marriage would take place.
“Many have asked about our marriage but we will let it be according to what God has planned.
“God willing, I will patiently wait for the right situation and accept it if the ceremony happens at any time,” he said.
> Actor and singer Andi Bernadee, 29, is not ashamed of mistakenly trusting a “close friend” of two years whom he sympathised with as the individual is an orphan, Harian Metro reported.
The 29-year-old recently made a police report against the individual for allegedly swindling his money and committing a breach of trust amounting to RM70,000.
Andi, whose real name is Andi Azrul Andi Mapangile, said the case is currently being investigated by the police.
“I will bring this issue to the courts once investigations have been completed. As of now, the money that was cheated from me has yet to be returned.
“I accept the current situation willingly but when things like this happen, I also blame myself for being too gullible in trusting people whom I had just known,” he said.
The actor said he became acquainted with the individual in 2019 out of sympathy.
“No matter what it is, money can always be earned.
“I’m just taken aback as the money was from my work on the drama Perisik Cinta Tak Diundang (The Uninvited Spy of Love) which I have yet to use,” he said.
