Tanzanian songbird Judith Wambura Mbibo better known by her stage name Lady Jaydee ‘Jide’ has finally been granted divorce by a court in Manzese, Sinza in Dar es Salaam.
Jaydee filed for a divorce in 2014 after she fell out with her then manager and husband Gardner G. Habash ‘Captain’.
The verdict that was issued last week Thursday put an end to a 9-year marriage which Jide says was marred with infidelity and intoxication.
“It is true that Jide and Gardner’s marriage has officially been terminated. They have been issued with divorce decrees and they can now move on with their personal lives,” a source told Tanzania’s weekly.
In a 2015 interview, the 35-year-old Yahaya star said that it was her personal decision to divorce Gardner, after the marriage became too much for her to take.
“My marriage didn’t work out. I was not happy at all and that’s why I decided not to carry on. My husband was cheating on me and had become a drunkard, while I was working so hard and giving the relationship all that I was able to. I am just happy and thank God that I don’t have children with him,” she said.
Her ex-husband, Gardner G. Habash, is a popular radio presenter in Tanzania.
