Ex-Singapore Idol Hady Mirza's wife is a sweet, soft-spoken woman in her 20s
by Elrica Tanu

Despite home-grown pop idol Hady Mirza's wish to keep his marriage private, guests at his solemnisation ceremony in Johor last Saturday have been posting pictures of him and his bride on social media.

In the posts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, they congratulated the couple and named his wife as Nur Jannah. She is believed to be from Johor.

They are reportedly on their honeymoon in the Maldives now.

In an interview with Life!, Hady's aunt, who wanted to be known only as auntie Yani, described Ms Jannah as a soft-spoken and sweet girl in her early 20s with a sunny disposition.

She called the marriage "a surprise blessing from God", but declined to elaborate.

Known for his smooth vocals, 34-year-old Hady won the second season of Singapore Idol in 2006 and the regional competition Asian Idol in 2007.

He has released two albums - Hady Mirza (2008) and Sang Penyanyi (2009).

His hit, Ku Tetap Kan Menunggu, won Most Popular Song in Singapore at Anugerah Planet Musik 2012, an award event organised by two Malay radio stations, Warna 94.2FM and RIA 89.7FM.

In recent months, he has stepped out of the limelight to spend more time at FRHM Youth, a local organisation he co-founded which promotes a Muslim education and way of life among youth.
