Zari has won the praise of many after refusing to re-unite with Diamond Platnumz following intervention from his manager and mother.
Zari came to Kenya a few weeks ago to host The Color Purple event and True Love got a chance to interview her. The cover photo depicted exactly who she is, the boss lady.
Zari Hassan opened up a lot including about her late mother.
Halima Hassan, Zari’s mother was romantically involved with an Indian man, Zari’s father.
Halima was a single mum to 7 children and for this Zari refers to her as a hustler.
Halima made curtains for a living, and Zari recalled the overwhelming number of orders her mother received from so many hotels in Uganda.
I REMEMBER HER BEING OVERLOADED WITH ORDERS FOR CURTAINS FOR ALMOST ALL THE HOTELS IN JINJA
Zari’s mother also has another hustle -dressmaking. In fact it’s said she was the best in town and all those orders caused her sleepless nights. Halima’s goal was to make sure her children are well fed and educated.
With such great memories, she was devasted when she lost her mother last year July. Halima was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and her conditioned had progressed.
She describes her mother as her best friend. She told her mother any and everything and the best part was, she taught Zari the amazing cooking skills she has.
WE WERE SO CLOSE. WE TALKED ABOUT ALMOST EVERYTHING AND SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO COOK. I THINK MY MUM MOULDED ME INTO THE WOMAN I AM TODAY. SHE TAUGHT ME TO STAND TALL IN WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN AND TO LOVE YOURSELF MOST OF ALL
