Rumours about the pair dating started in 2015 when a social media post showed the 30-year-old singer and Adam in a car with actor Ashraf Sinclair and wife Indonesian star Bunga Citra Lestari.

Yuna has described Adam as her "best friend".

"This is the first step to getting married and I'm so happy that I found Adam; he has a wonderful heart, he's very responsible and respectful of my parents.

"He is my best friend and he brought so much joy and laughter into my life, and I'm very excited to embark on this new journey with him."

Born in Kedah, 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 (BET) award in the BET Centric category for her song Crush featuring Usher.

Adam is a 33-year-old 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.
