Ummi Ibrahim Zee-Zee, the unpredictably soft spoken Shuwa lady from Borno State, used to be a household name in the Kannywood movie industry for having featured in many blockbuster films.
In a recent interview, she recalled her controversial relationship with the Rivers born musician, Timaya when she was in Lagos a couple of years ago.
Speaking on her relationship in the industry, the beautiful actress said: “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.”
She added that her greatest regret in life was dating Timaya.
“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.”
On her plans for marriage she said: “Honestly, I want to settle down before the year runs out and I am praying hard for that to happen. As you know, I have a person in mind and God knows best what is in stock for both of us.”
