Adira's coronation song "Ku Ada Kamu" was released as a promotional single via the compilation album "Hitz AF8", featuring songs by the contestants of Akademi Fantasia 8. The song was a massive hit in Malaysia, topping several radio charts, such as Carta Hot FM 30, Carta Muzik Muzik and Carta Suria FM. It became a top 5 hit in Carta Muzik FM and Carta Era, at No.2 and No.5. A music video of the song was released about a few days after the finale concert of the eight season of Akademi Fantasia.

In December 2010, the song was announced as one of the songs that managed to enter the Anugerah Juara Lagu,[6] a Malaysian annual award show to honour the best songs in the local entertainment industry. She performed the song on the award show, held on Stadium Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur on 9 January 2011.

Following her success after Akademi Fantasia, Adira became the spokesperson for Innershine Pati Prun along with her sister, Ema. She made her acting debut in Lawaknya Fantasia Raya, a comedy television movie starring alongside Rozita Che Wan and Dato' Aziz Sattar.[7]

In the same year, she sang the theme song of Astro Citra's "Dendam Kesuma", "Kesuma"[8] and "Ilusi" which served as the theme song of the comedy series Awan Dania, in the third season,[9] which is also Adira's favourite TV series.
