The two apparently exchanged vows on February 11, 2011, before separating two years later. Madina would later file for divorce at the Kadhi courts after their separation saying that their marriage was dead and could not be revived due to irreconcilable differences.

"I want to state openly and unequivocal that our marriage died irretrievably with no chance of revival given we have both moved on over the years," she said.

In June 2013, Joho is said to have moved out of their matrimonial home worsening the already troubled marriage.

Fazzini said she continued living in the same house with her children until 2020 when she decided to move out and relocated to Malindi, where she currently lives.
