Tanzanian singer Ali Kiba says he has sent his wife Amina Khalef back to Kenya even as he admitted that their marriage has not been a bed of roses.
In a recent interview with Tanzanian radio presenter Diva The Bause, the singer said there are issues between them but denied claims that they had divorced.
“It is true that my wife and I have issues, which is normal for any couple. I returned her to her parent’s home. I wanted her to also go back to work, I then traveled to Europe,” he said.
“She had previously told me she wanted to work because she is very educated. When I returned from Europe, she told me she was good and now I can go visit her at any time. I haven’t divorced her yet, but everyone is doing their own thing now. Divorce is not something to be praised or announced to people.”
On rumors that his mother was the source of their disagreements, Kiba said: “My mother is not at the center of our marital wrangles. If anything, it was my mother who reconciled us every other time a dispute between my wife and me arose.”
Kiba, 31, and Amina, 24, tied the knot on April 2018 in two lavish wedding ceremonies held in Mombasa and Dar es Salaam.
The couple welcomed their first-born child in February this year.
