SINGAPORE - Former Singapore Idol winner Taufik Batisah has confirmed he will be getting married in April.
The singer said in a statement that he was glad to have "finally found the special someone". He added, however, that he wanted to protect her privacy and did not reveal any information about his fiancee.
"Going forward, I hope that my passion for work and my family can co-exist beautifully together," he added.
His record label Hype Records congratulated the singer in a statement: "We are supportive of Taufik and respect his decision. We are truly happy for him and wish them a blissful marriage."
Here is the statement Taufik released on Saturday:
"Thank you everyone for your kind words and well wishes. Similarly to how we have shared both joys and tears together throughout my career, I would also like to share this personal joy with all of you. I am glad to have finally found the special someone whom I can share my future with. She is not in the entertainment business... I have always been private in terms of my personal life thus I seek your kind understanding that I sincerely will like to protect her privacy. Going forward, I hope that my passion for work and my family can co-exist beautifully together. It will be a pretty hectic time for us leading to the wedding with all the preparations. I do hope that you will continue to support and pray for the best of us."
