Congratulatory messages began pouring in on her Instagram account from both her fans and celebrities alike including Indonesian singer Anggun and local comedienne and TV host Sherry Alhadad.

Founded in New York City in 1967 by Dutch supermodel Wilhelmina Cooper, the agency is one of the most prominent in the fashion world.


Shawn Mendes, Nicki Minaj as well as music producer Kydo are among the international singers who also signed-up with the modelling agency.

Other big names in the modelling world who had been with the agency include Janice Dickinson, Robyn Lawley, Anjelica Huston, Rachel Trachtenburg and Kendall Jenner.

Yuna (Yunalis binti Mat Zara’ai) became famous when her music on Myspace received over one million plays.

Her success alerted the Indie-Pop label/management company and she was signed on with Fader Label in early 2011.

Yuna is known for her collaboration with Usher on her breakout single, Crush which peaked at number 3 on the US Billboard Adult R&B chart.

The singer started writing songs at the age of 14 and she taught herself how to play the guitar.

In 2006, in need of a creative outlet while attending law school, she performed for an audience for the first time.
