16 Dec - After three years of marriage, Suria FM's Fizi Ali and actress Shakilla Koriri have decided to go their separate ways.
The news was first shared by Fizi on social media on 15 December, writing, "With a heavy heart, I would like to announce that Shakilla and I are no longer together and will go our separate paths. Despite living separately, we have agreed that we will raise Ameena with love. We promise that Ameena will still feel the full love of her daddy and her umi..."
"We hope all parties can respect this decision. Thank you for your prayers and please pray that the three of us are able to continue this long journey," he added.
When asked about the divorce, 32-year-old Shakilla admitted that the news came as a shock even to their friends and relatives.
"Honestly, Fizi and I had tried to rectify the relationship, but maybe the separation will enable us to open our minds and hearts to see farther," she said.
Despite that, the "Geng Tadarus" actress said that she is truly saddened by their failed marriage, especially since it has been nearly a decade since they knew each other and three since their marriage.
"If we were to find somebody new, we hope not to make the same mistakes with our partners," she added.
