Maria Eva

Dec 2nd, 2006, in Celebrities, News, by

Maria Eva, deeply religious woman and star of the Golkar porn flick, a hive of contradictions.

Maria Eva, or Maria Ireva, 29, usually called Merry, from Sidoarjo in East Java, is the dangdut singer and sometime sinetron actress who appeared in the raunchy sex recording with Golkar parliamentarian Yahya Zaini.

Her name has cropped up here once before, when she was reported to have attended a gathering of the Muhammadiyah branch of Surabaya on November 11th 2006 whereupon it was announced by Din Syamsuddin that a Muslim (inner) beauty contest would be held. Maria, along with other local celebrities, Cici Tegal, Yolanda Yusuf, and Ozzy Saputra, put in an appearance to show her support of the idea.

Maria Eva, it appears, is not only active in the religious activities of Muhammadiyah, but also in Partai Golkar on a long term basis. She is said to belong to the youth wing of Golkar and has made herself useful at a number of Golkar events. L6 Controversy has sometimes ensued. In 2005 she entered into a legal dispute with the wife of a DPR member – Maria claimed that her good name had been besmirched by the woman. Both of the women reported the other to the police. gatra

Maria, who was born Maria Ulfah, has fairly good religious credentials. She has been on the pilgrimage to Mecca, twice, both in and out of the Hajj season, and spent much time in prayer, contemplation, and communication with God, in the Holy Land of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. poskota

I tell God about whatever is buried within my heart.

Maria is still a virgin, it seems, because she is not yet married, and she claims to be unafraid of the prospect of being a “perawan tua”, literally “old virgin”, or more likely “old spinster”, preferring instead to just “go with the flow” of life.

What’s important for me is to just go along in life so long as God gives me health and opportunities.

However she does admit to having dated western men in Jakarta, and even while such men are notorious for their ravenous sexual appetites, it appears she managed to maintain her purity. sapos

    NO COMMENT! Do ur own business n i’ll do mine!

  2. Retarders says:

    Damn …. this is hilarious … normally they would be only 5-10 comments per entry… but there are 60 in this post alone…. Guess Indonesians really like scandals and watched others in misery… lolz.

    @Iqbal “¦ R u YZ supporter “¦. or Golkar fanatic?

  3. Mr. Mesum says:

    Where can I find the clip on the internet?

  4. Saddam says:

    IQBAL is too afraid to make comments.

    Deeply religious and zealot Muslim, Yahya Zaini was the very member of Parliament who ardently supported the Antipornographic Bill (UU Anti Pornografi). This Bill essentially tries to regulate other people business (like how to dress, what sort of behaviors acceptable in public, what to write, etc) by using mainly Muslim point of views. Of course, his main argument is the Antipornographic Bill is to “save” the morality of the general public or for that matter the nation. It’s shameless that Mr. ZainI can’t even save himself from his own lusts, filming his own pornographic clips. He even forced Eva to perform an abortion. That makes him guilty of two counts: an adulterer and a murderer.

    It’s very interesting, as another pointed out above, why the Muslim mouthpieces and religious bodies (ie. MUI, FPI, Laskar Jihad, etc) are unusually quiet in this issue. I supposed they, too, are like IQBAL. When it comes to their own vile acts, they all have “no comment, mind your own business and we do ours”.

    He who lives by a sword dies by a sword.

  5. Ministry of Information says:

    The President has issued a decree prohibiting government employees and representatives to be discreet by not videotaping and releasing uncompromising sexual situations of themselves for general public. “What happened in hotel room, stay in hotel room. And make sure you tip the bellboy to keep his mouth shut” he added.

  6. Ronald says:

    it happened four years ago. People changed friends. Don’t judge them. I salute Maria Eva for her courage to tell the truth. This informs us that there are many parliamant members use people’s money for their love affairs. what an immoral!!

  7. ave212 says:

    so everybody thinks that they have no sins?? are you sadam?? do you think all Moslem like those person who doing scandal things??no no no Moslem not like that.They just said that they are Moslems but the fact they’re only a piece of crap.Anyway, everything we said about what these people do (ME and YZ) it won’t do any good.Because there are still plenty of people out there thinks I”M THE MAN!!!!” know what I meant ….?

  8. Saddam says:

    I never say that I have no sins. But th

    Those Muslims who speaks loudest in public demanding that others must follow certain (Islamic) standards are filthy and rotten themselves. Muslim political organisations and Muslim politicians should look at themselves before demanding the general public how to behave. Unfortunately, those like Yahya Zaini are more talks than substance. The Muslim political organisations are quiet when it comes to their own members. Those Muslim thugs like FPI, Laskar Jihad or Lasker Mujahiddin use aggresion and even violences against the so-called “un-Islamic” activities. But why in the world they’re not smashing Golkar’s headquarter, for example? Remember Rhoma Irama? He spoke against Inul’s dance, labelled her as moral disgrace. But, he himself was having an affair with a female singer, abandoning his own wife. These Muslim public figures are hypocrites. They say one thing for the general public, but do the opposite for themselves.

    Note, Golkar is not formally a religious-based party, but over the years after Suharto’e era, they ‘ve been courting the Muslim-based movements in an attempt to gain votes.

  9. heinrich says:


    what a bitch… hmm like Indonesian says…if thiefs said what he has done…maybe jail become full of them… oh mi got…. I BET SHE IS NOT VIRGIN what hell says.. I think she enjoyed to be ‘drill’ with YZ ‘driller’.

  10. coolguy says:

    in respond to ministry of information

    i bet the president will definite implement such prohibition as maybe there will be more news comming out with regards to such immoral act. So in order to protect his cabinet and all his lembu therefore this kindda of law is necessary and must be implemented.

    To saddam i totaly agree to your comment cause this courntry really sucks with lag of justice uphold especially where top people r involved. They always has ways to run from it ……history will then repeat again .

    seems like everyone is using Muslim to get things done nowadays…
    indo is a “democratic country” although majority of its ppl are Muslim.
    but we don’t wanna live life like in the Arabic countries (e.g F**King RUU).
    Whats wrong with you ppl?

    RUU forbids women from exposing too much skins and hence lower sexual assults….
    what about in Arabic countries where women cover all part of their body except eyes and hands and yet sexual assult is still high!!!

  12. Saddam says:

    An abortion, performed without a valid medical reason, is a criminal act according to Indonesian laws. It is considered as murder, which I have no doubt Yahya Zaini a law maker is very well aware of. Maria Ulfah in her so-called confession made it clear that the abortion was done because of pressure from Yahya. Therefore, as far as Indonesian laws are concerned, all parties -Eva, Yahya and the abortion doctor- are criminal suspects.

    Poor Eva. She ran her mouth loose on TV. She ought to fire her Golkar-aspired solicitor and gets a good criminal lawyer instead.

    Indonesia prides itself of being a “negara hukum”, whatever it means. It’s interesting to see whether the hopelessly corrupt justice system will do something against Yahya and Eva.

    If these two are eventually brought to court, I would bet my ass off that they would appear as innocently as possible. They would dress up religiously, talk religiously and hire a bunch of religious supporters (who swear in the name of Allah that they were good Muslims who happened fall under temptation). Yahya would recite prayers that he is a victim of a political maneuver. Eva would be tearful, just for a show. That would be their defense in court. Behind the scene, money will flow freely, corrupting all the police..the prosecutor…and the judges.

  13. Conspiracy Theorist says:

    is it possible that the politician was set up by his mistress?

    1, the mistress NEVER hesitated to admit that it WAS HER in the clip. in fact, compared to her ex-lover who’s gone into hiding, she seemed to LOVE publicity, or at least not shy about it. she’s cried on national tv:

    2, she emphasised that it was not her who SPREAD it. y would she think ppl would suspect HER??

    3, from the clip (thanks to, it looks like it was shot with HER handphone. so, if the clip got out to the public domain, must be her fault 1 way or the other (careless or reckless)… if she had guarded it properly, surely it wouldn’t have got out.

    4, the effects of the expose r OPPOSITE to her n her lover. her lover has resigned, n HIDING. he’s pretty much DEAD, not just as a politician, but in everything he wants to do.

    but as for her, i think she has suddenly become VERY famous. ppl have now NOTICED her – before this, just a nobody, small-time singer.

    now, I’m sure her albums (if she had any) would be selling like hotcakes. she’s already been on national tv to cry (audience LOVE that kind of drama!!), so I’m sure her face would become public knowledge very soon – if not already so!! more than 15 min of fame is awaiting her.

    5, i suspect what happened was, she wanted to blackmail her politician lover for something, but he rejected her demands. so, she thought, let’s die together, c who’ll survive.

    turns out, her lover is DEAD, she’s prospering… sweet revenge???

    not all women r angels, u know…

  14. Boooo says:

    Poor Yahya & Maria. These people had a good time … but filthy hands spread that damned recording. I mean … if only the video had been well saved, nothing would happen. But, gee folks … unfortunately bad acts stink. My friends YZ & ME, if you want to commit suicide, please stay away from your camera/celphone. Guaranteed safe harakiri.

  15. Saddam says:

    The time is now for Indonesia to replace “IBU KARTINI” as a national figure for Indonesia Women with “EVA MARIA ULFAH”.

    Why is that?

    Because Eva Maria has done more for the country than Kartini ever did. For one thing, Eva Maria is so goddamned clever in filming the pornographic clips using a cellular phone. In so doing, as a woman she single-handedly exposes the rotten hypocritical nature of the Indonesian Parliament, the Muslim organisations, and politicians. She does it without inciting violences or shooting any bullet. Indeed, no words need to be spoken as the movie clips reveal everything there is to know. She selflessly sacrifices her own body, religious image and her safety by shooting the pornographic clips. By all accounts, she is a national heroine. She should be given a medal by the grateful nation for her artistic and heroic works.

    All Kartini ever did was writing tons of letters to her Dutch friends complaining about the mistreatment of the Javanese culture against women. She wanted to go to school, but the culture said that women should stay home and be dumb. For her writing, Kartini was crowned a national hero. Compared to what Eva Maria does, Kartini did very little.

    Ladies and gentlemen…please welcome…EVA MARIA ULFAH…the new national hero (national anthem playing in the background)….

    yuuhhuuuu where are you FPI???!!…rather than screaming about pornography (which is useless because i bet your own ppl did that) better to eat your own p** dude wooooooo 😛

  17. twenty goin thirty says:

    i see this whole thing as mere bad luck. and i actually dont blame YZ and Maria for what they did, HOWEVER since YZ had a special title following his name, yes what he did was definitely nothing more than playing with fire.

    Hey we’re all human. a couple of weeks ago, i went to U2 concert and there was Bono spreading all his vision about human rights, fighting poverty and saving the world. and yet according to onlookers, what happened after the show is that the whole band went straight to a local strip club. i dont blame them either. when they were on stage, they were performing their duty. but when they’re not, they’re free to do whatever they want to do. who said Lady Di has never fart? imagine if she has to keep her princess image 24/7..

    i believe what people stressing, is simply the fact that YZ was supposed to be a role model for Indonesians and yet he did such thing. i dont think it’s actually necesary for him to resign, but maybe he could get other position instead (preferrably the ones without religion attched to it). if he has been performing excellent job at work, losing him as a member will be a big loss for his fraction. and i gotta say, im still a student and i think im not that dumb in deciding whats right and wrong. these sort of role models wont affect me.

  18. Bad Boyz Blue says:

    Its alright if several of representative person (DPR/MPR) doin this affair, being a thief, corruptor, using drugs, because they representing people of INdonesia.. right.!!!
    GOD,.. PLZ HELP US ….

  19. Captain says:

    Well…..It’s obviously tell us about their lifestyle….using people’s fund to F***….. What a Simple Life…..

  20. ucok bah says:

    it’s no surprising why DPR members are always demanding a very high rise in their pay–so that they can pay for more sexual pleasure not for the compensation of the hard work and sacrifice they have been supposed to do and give. i hate DPR members of this country more and more day by day….May all the curses of the people in this country fall on the DPR members who have harrassed them through their legislative policy.

  21. Junior says:

    May be MOST OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OFFICIAL AND STATE OFFICIAL always use state fund for having F*** with many women. Om SBY and Om JK should kill off this species from this earth. A few month ago, The house of representative’s official urged the government to increase their salary and ten millions rupiah of insentive every month just for having fun and for their wordly pleasure and their animal desire . Our country, sooner or later will collapse if we still breed this F***ing cattle. Maria Eva…… kagak tau malu loe

  22. Captain says:

    May God forgives them…..

  23. satan says:

    Maria Eva is becoming a notorious public figure now…….. There are so many poor people in our sociaty but the government still give much money and provide good facilities for the f***ing house of representative and f***ing state officia…… how come ????? Mr SBY should increase the teachers or armed forces salary and give them good facilities to guard this beautiful country…. not f***ing state official and the house of representative official….. WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO OUR COUNTRY….. JUST NATO ….. NO ACTION, TALK ONLY. How can an artist become one of house of representative member????? What can they do ????

  24. dodol says:

    She just recently acknowledged that she has done abortion in the past (about 2 years ago) due to the pressure from Mr and Mrs. YZ. I guess the discussion about being “virgin” ceased to valid, unless she is trying to compare herself to the Virgin Mary (supposedly they have the same name), which is certainly ridiculous.
    But yeah, leave the religion out of this context!

    Its obvious that Islam is into repressing women. Your a sad bunch of people. Hopefully your religion will learn to right it ways. We are all human and free.
    Its sad your country is so dependent on tourist dollars because the was Indonesia is going right now you can kiss your tourist dollar goodbye.

    >>> excuse moi? I’m a Moslem and i was brought up in a Moslem family. but please refer to my commemt above. its better to be objective here. Our country has been in a deep s*it for decades. I do think its important to recruit people with outstanding skills, commitments and experiences to re-build the whole country. Well, if YZ performs an outstanding work in rebuilding Indonesia (which is important since most people in our country live under the poverty line) so why not? And as for paying them and got disappointed at the end, hey, once you paid someone all you get is the result of their work. You don’t have the right to tell them how to spend their money.

  26. Johnny Depp says:

    Dun worry, Maria!! U will become popular after these … such a “miang” & hot singer! MILF.

  27. Saddam says:

    The problem is YZ and its party Golkar have done a sh*tty job rebuilding the country. Anyone know exactly what positive thing has YZ done for the country? The track record of Golkar is so sorry. I admit they have done a good job enriching themselves and corrupting the country. Surely they have done a fantastic job lifting themselves and their croonies above the billionaire (in rupiah terms) line at the expense of the whole country.

    I don’t have any problem if people want to spend their own money for their own purposes. I couldn’t care less if they want to burn down all their money if they feel like doing it.

    I do have problem, however, when losers like YZ bitching left and right about “saving” the nation from moral degradation and forcefully push the so-called UU Antipornography which basically tries to regulate what other people must behave from mainly Muslim point of view. They impose a strict morality standard for other, but they have another set of standard for themselves. If you can’t govern yourself, how can you govern or for that matter rebuild the country?

  28. Maman says:

    Extraordinarry for Indonesian Parlemen, because have excellent porn actor

  29. twenty goin thirty says:

    if we want a perfect and flawless person to lead the country, we’ll ended up with no leaders. even the Prophet of Muhammad and Jesus Christ are human, and there’s no guarantee that their ‘qualifications’ defines ‘perfect’ to everyone. i do think that we don’t need to be perfect to be a leader, as long as these leaders know their weaknesses, admit it and willing to improve. if I’m not perfect and im regulating people so then they’ll live better lives than me, so why not? leaders doesnt always need to be a role model..and we surely dont need to praise leaders. i do think it all depends to us. instead of being mad and dreading this countries’ regulators, better just switch your point of view and understand what benefits these regulations will bring tp us individually. and as for those leaders who loves to talk and lie to themselves……just let them drown in their own words and mistakes.

    She is a really devil who comes with a good looking mask. Go to hell !!! it’s really disgusting when thinking of her…………….
