Before releasing her first album in 2008, Syahrini performed her single soundtrack (“Tatapan Cinta”) for one of the most famous Indian movies “Coklat Strober” (Chocolate and Strawberry).
Syahrini was born on August 1st in 1982 in Sukabumi (Bogor), Indonesia, under the sign of Leo, and is 36 years old now.
Her father, Dadang Zaelani, owns a gold and mining shop business in Bogor. Her mother’s name is Wati Nurhayati.
Dadang and Wati have three children – Rini Fatimah Jealeani (Syahrini), Ridwan Zaelani (her older brother), and Aisyahrani Fatimah Zaelani (younger sister).
Syahrini completed high school and wanted to enroll at the Pakuan University (West Java, Indonesia).
Pakuan University is in Bogor, and Syahrini earned her bachelor degree in law on this university in 2007.
She actually had some plans to do a master’s degree in the Netherlands, but, as Syahrini used to sing during college, her hobby has pretended to become her major occupation.
She was passionate about acting and singing since her early ages, which lead to achieving world fame and popularity.
She made her acting debut in the Indonesian movie Basahhh in 2008, in which she had a pivotal role.
Seems like 2008 was a truly fruitful year for Syahrini, as she released her debut album (“My Lovely”) the same year via Trinity Optima Production in collaboration with Dewiq and Yovie Widiant, who wrote the songs for this album.
Most famous tracks from this album are “Lies” (Bohong) and “My Lovely”.
This is when Syahrini grabbed the attention of music lovers, and her career started blooming.
Syahrini draw the attention of Anang Hermansvah, who is a singer as well. They met on a TV show and he proposed a duet, which resulted in releasing a single “The Last Love” (Cinta Terakhir).
After the two split apart, she decided to reestablish her career as an independent solo female singer and recorded the song “I am Not Used To Be”, which is a cover of the late Alda Risma’s song.
The next album followed in 2010 when she dropped “Don’t Choose Me” (Jangan Memilih Aku).
Syahrini released this album in collaboration with Anang Hermansyah, famous Indonesian singer whom she met on a TV show. Their energies went well together, and these two decided to work together.
As Syahrini loved acting, just as we mentioned, she couldn’t resist invites for movies “The Maling Kuburans” (2009) and “Baik-Baik Sayang” (2011), and she did an amazing job here.
Last year, Syahrini appeared in the movie “Bodyguard Ugal-Ugalan”.
Respectively, she released two more albums in 2012 and 2016, under the titles “All Because of Love” and “Princess Syahrini”.
Most listened singles by Syahrini are: “Janang Memlih Ahu”, “Aku Tak Biasa”, “Kau Yang Memlih Aku”, “Sesautu”, “Cinta Sendrian”, “Cinta Tapi Gengsi”, “Sandiwara Cinta”, “Cetarrr”, and “Seperti Itu”.
Not only she released two amazing albums, Syahrini managed to film her own reality show – Princess Syahrini, which was active during 2014 and 2015.
She appeared as a judge on Indonesia’s Got Talent in 2015, and the audience fell in love with her even more.
Another proof of her popularity is more than 30 awards – the Most Popular Singer Award at the SCTV Awards 2018, two Yahoo!OMG Awards (2012 and 2014), and two Nickelodeon Indonesia Kids’ Choice Awards.

When she was asked about artists who influenced her career and were her inspiration, Syahrini mentioned Indonesian pop star Krisdayanti, Tata Young, and Beyonce Knowles.
When it comes to fashion, she absolutely loves Kim Kardashian’s and Rihanna’s style.
Talking about the Indonesian scene, Syahrini is one of the most influential pop stars out there. The proof of this is a vast number of her followers on social media.
28 million people follow Syahrini’s Instagram account, she has 1.1 million followers on Facebook, while her Twitter account handles about 4 million followers.
What is more, Syahrini is on the list of 100 most popular people on Instagram.
Syahrini lately was off the media limelight, and we suppose the reason for that is because she is working on new projects.
Yet, what many people don’t know about Syahrini is that she conceived several businesses, even though her main occupation is singing.
She owns a chain of cake shops and fashion line related to hijab and scarves (Fatimah Syahrini).
Her Princess Cake chain developed bit by bit. The idea of making and selling double cheesecake with extra cream cheese went very well all across Indonesia, and she is opening new outlets on a monthly basis.
Syahrini was in a relationship with Raja Mohammad Syazni, but they ended it in 2012. Afterward, there were rumors about her new date – Jeffrey Sutorius of Dash Berlin, but this relationship was never confirmed.
She was allegedly associated with Tubagus Chaeri Wardana, better known as Wawan, who was the main suspect in a corruption case of the procurement of medical equipment. Wawan is also the brother of Ratu Atut Chosiyah, Banten Province’s Governor.
Jennifer Dunn, Aura Kasih, and Catherine Wilson are believed to be involved in the case as well.
According to rumors, Wawan was involved in romantic and sexual relationships with all these women and spent the corrupted money on luxurious gifts and travels.
However, Syahrini denied the rumor as well as the previous one.
This year, on February 27th, Syahrini said yers to Reino Barack, at the Tokyo Camii mosque in Japan. Reino is the Senior Vice President of Business Development at Global Mediacom.
Many rumors followed this act of theirs as well. In fact, people were talking about Reino and his ex-girlfriend, an Indonesian actress Luna Maya.
However, the first time Syahrini and Reino appeared together for the first time after getting married in public on March 12th, when Syahrini took the opportunity to say she didn’t steal anyone’s man, as Reino was single at the moment when they met.
In the end, she added their marriage is a true blessing from God and that their love is real.
Speaking of the wedding, the hosts didn’t allow their guests to take any pictures or videos of the ceremony, and that is thy smartphones weren’t allowed in there as well.
The preparations lasted for the whole morning, and everything ran smoothly, just as the newlyweds imagined.
Some of the guests were Rachmat Gobel, businessman, Quraish Shihab, prominent cleric, and Arifin Tasrif, Indonesian Ambassador to Japan.
