His heart was captured the first time he laid eyes on her in 2009.
Syarif Sleeq of local hip hop duo Sleeq was then an intern with MediaCorp’s Channel 5 and Malaque Mahdaly was a Singapore Idol 3 contestant.
He fell in love with her wavy, flowing hair and was captivated when she sang a cover of a song by US R&B singer Keyshia Cole.
The pair dated for five years and tied the knot last Saturday in a glitzy, regal yet intimate affair at Alkaff Mansion.
It saw some 350 guests that included celebrities like actor Aaron Aziz, actresses Nurul Aini and Mastura Ahmad, Ria 89.7FM radio DJs Aura Shai, Fiza O, KC and Nity Baizura as well as Malaysian host Aznil Nawawi.
The solemnisation ceremony and wedding lunch was at the same venue earlier in the day.
Specially for fans, a live stream of the solemnisation ceremony and wedding dinner was made available on www.thesyarifs.com
Dressed to the dinner theme “Be Bold, Be Gold”, most came in their shiniest, flashiest best.
On one thing they all agreed: Syarif and cake artist Malaque, both 25, are a match made in heaven.MYNEWSHUB
