Relocation to Peshawar

In 2008, Ghazala's family moved to Peshawar due to the ongoing conflict between militants from the Taliban movement and the Pakistani army in their hometown. It was in Peshawar where Javed started singing in the Pushto language and gained recognition among the population of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

On February 7, 2010, Ghazala Javed married real estate salesman Jehangir Khan. However, she soon discovered that Khan had another wife, leading to disagreements within their family. On November 18, 2010, Javed left her husband and moved back to her parents' home. She filed for divorce on October 12, 2011, and the couple was officially divorced on December 4, 2011.
