Shamirah Nalule Sembatya alias Mimi, a Ugandan lady based in the US, accused Zari Hassan of eloping with her husband Shakib Cham Lutaaya.

While placing a document supporting her claim, Mimi said she has been legally married to Shakib since June 2016 and that they have not divorced.

Mimi further claimed that after they got married she processed Shakib’s visa and flew him to the US a year later in 2017.

Shakib reportedly started sneaking from his marriage to be with Zari in early 2022, before fully relocating to South Africa to be with the mother of five.

Mimi says she suspects Shakib left their marriage because Zari is more famous and richer than her.

However, Zari rubbished Mimi’s allegations while responding to a fan who asked her about eloping with Shakib.

“His wife claims you broke 💔 her marriage 💑 is that true?” A fan posed the question to Zari.

To which she responded;

“Clout chasers.”

Shakib also refuted the claims, saying that Mimi and him only dated but they never got married.

In a phone interview with a local television station in Uganda, Shakib said Mimi was his girlfriend for eight years.

“I know Shakirah Nalule, and she was my girlfriend eight years ago but never got married,” he said.

Shakib revealed that he ended his relationship with Mimi after finding out that they belonged to the same clan.

“She even wanted me to go to America while I was in South Africa, but I refused after finding out that we are both from the same clan, “Ngonge” not only that she also has six children from different men,” Shakib said.
