Nigerian singer, Zaaki Azzay has denied marrying his former wife’s cousin, stating that they are only from the same Local Government. He also said his marriage, which took place three weeks ago was not in any way a secret because he granted exclusive coverage to HipTv and reporters from Radio Benue were also present.
In a recent interview with The Nation:
“As a public figure, everybody knows my story. It is on the Internet. My present wife’s family has looked into the matter critically and found out that most of what was said about me was not true. Apart from this, Hembadoon is not someone who doesn’t know her right from her left. She is a graduate of Benue State University.
When asked why he married
another wife from the same village where his ex comes from, he said:
“When I started dating my present wife, I didn’t know that she was from the same community with my former wife. I had vowed never to touch anybody who doesn’t love me sincerely because I didn’t want to fall into the wrong hands again. But when I eventually fell in love seriously, I knew. I have met a lot of women who are finer, richer and more educated than she is, but I know that they are just after me for one thing or the other. So, it is love that actually joined us. In fact, when I found out that she is from that community, I almost ran away. But eventually, I decided that I won’t maltreat another woman because one woman has wronged me. You shouldn’t let your past influence your future. I didn’t marry secretly. Radio Benue was there and I gave Hip TV exclusivity to cover it.”
