A popular Kannywood actress, Ummi Ibrahim Zee-Zee, opened up about her relationship with singer Timaya in a new interview, stating that it was one of the most difficult periods in her life to forget.
She also bashed rumours that she’d converted from Islam because of her relationship with Timaya, stating that this was a lie and that she loves Islam.
She said; Sometimes ago somebody was quoted as saying that I left Islam and converted to another religion because of my relationship with Timaya. I found it very difficult to believe. It was very much baseless and a mere allegation to tarnish my image. In fact in my entire life that is an incident I am finding it difficult to forget. I am a religious person. I love Islam and whenever I am free I read Hadith of the Holy Prophet a lot.
She was also asked about her greatest accolade and to this she said; The award I won for featuring in a film called ‘Jinsi’. I got my nickname ‘Zee-Zee’ from the film because I was a character named: ‘Zee-Zee’ which Fati Washa was the lead actress. People were asking whether it was my film. It was not my film and the cars used in the film too were not mine. My cars used to have’ Zee-Zee’ as their special plate number. But of recent I use security cars that have no numbers
When asked about friends she added; I don’t even keep friends, male or female. I had boyfriend when I was in Kannywood before my controversial relationship with Timaya. But all is now history. I have found a love of my life now.
