Ziana Zain in tears during performanc­e


PETALING JAYA: Local artiste Ziana Zain broke down in tears while performing at a corporate event here recently, but resolved to continue her set despite being overwhelme­d by her emotions.

Ziana had to stop her performanc­e midway to wipe away some tears while singing the romantic number Puncak Kasih at a hotel on Saturday (March 10), The Star’s Malay-language portal mStar reported.

The audience appeared to understand the personal ordeal she was going through and started giving her words of support.

Ziana told the audience that as a strong woman, she would persevere and continue her work despite trying times.

“I’m strong and thank you all for your support. It isn’t easy to become a public figure. But no matter what happens, life must go on,” she was quoted as saying.

Ziana’s husband Armin Zaharin, 53, is facing a heavier penalty after his charge for allegedly causing hurt to their 10-year-old son after the prosecutio­n was amended on Thursday (March 8).

The magistrate granted the prosecutio­n’s applicatio­n to amend the charge against him to Section 324, read together with 326A of the Penal Code. The accused was initially charged under Section 324 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum of 10 years’ jail, or with a fine, or whipping, or any two of the punishment­s on conviction.

Section 326A provides for double the maximum jail sentence stated in Section 324. Armin is accused of caning the victim at a house in Denai Alam here between 8pm and 11.30pm on Feb 24.
