The singer was alleged of wife assault in 2012 which reportedly led to his ex-wife, Hadiza leaving her matrimonial home with their two kids.

Giving his reason for choosing to marry his ex-wife’s cousin, Zaaki said,“When I started dating my new wife, I didn’t even know she is from the same community as my ex. The time I got to know, I was already in love with her. It is not right for you to judge other women based on what other women did to you in the past. People differ. I can’t say because one woman is bad, every other woman in that community is bad as well.”

“When I asked for her hand in marriage, her father said he would investigate all he heard about me before he would give his approval for me to take his daughter and he did that. If I were a bad person, as soon as I got to that community, they would certainly have refused giving me another daughter of theirs. It is obvious they know I am a good person. That goes to show that there is more to it than my ex wife is saying,” he said.
