Nicknamed “Asia’s Sweetheart”, Shila, who is the daughter of popular 1980s singer Datuk Amir Amzah Salleh (ND Lala), first rose to fame when her single Patah Seribu won multiple awards at the 19th Malaysian Music Awards.
She later became the first and only Malay artist to break into Chinese-speaking market after winning Chinese reality singing talent show Asian Wave in 2012, where she beat more than 20 contestants from across Asia.
Two years later, she came in third in another Chinese singing competition, I Am A Singer and picked up the Best Female Stage Performer Award at the 15th Global Chinese Music Awards the following year.
Shila can sing in 10 different languages including Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Tamil, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, and Italian, and was listed in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in 2018, as she was recognised as one of the young leaders, entrepreneurs and game changers from across Asia under Entertainment and Sports category.
