The Clouds FM presenter stated that Khadija Kopa, Zuchu's mother, was not guiding her daughter to adhere to the appropriate Islamic norms.
Mwijaku, known for his outspoken nature, stirred the pot by criticising Khadija Kopa's alleged endorsement of her daughter's romantic involvement with Diamond Platnumz.
In an interview with Tanzanian content creators, he questioned whether Khadija Kopa was prepared to bear the burden of her daughter's actions.
Zuchu fires back at Mwijaku
Zuchu swiftly responded to Mwijaku's comments with a powerful rebuttal, warning him to brace himself for the repercussions of disrespecting her and her mother.
She vowed to go to great lengths, even spending her entire savings, to ensure that Mwijaku faced consequences and served as an example to those who belittle and demean women.
"Wallahi, I will use every peny in my account, Wallahi nitakutolea mfano. Nimekuacha mno ila kwa hili la mamangu utakuwa fundisho kwa wenzio," Zuchu declared firmly.
Mwikaju's comments to Khadija Kopa about Zuchu's action
Mwijaku, known for his controversial remarks, questioned Khadija Kopa's support for her daughter's actions.
He expressed disappointment in seeing Khadija Kopa aligning herself with 'fornicators' despite previously emphasising religious values and principles for her daughter's path to marriage.
He probed whether she was willing to bear the burden of her daughter's choices.
"Nimesikitika sana kumuona mama yangu Khadija Kopa yeye anatetea hili, wakati siku za nyuma mama yangu tulikaa tukasema mwanangu ataolewa leo anauliza ndoa ya kazi gani Mwijaku. Je yuko tayari kubeba dhambi za bintiye?
"[It pains me to see Khadija Kopa siding with fornicators yet she had expressed the willingness to guide her daughter according to religion until she gets married. Today she asks whats the essence of a wedding is. Is she ready to carry her daughter’s cross?] Mwijaku said.
