When Zari Hassan said that she doesn’t need Ringtone’s Range Rover because she’s a boss lady who can afford her own, she wasn’t lying.
The Ugandan businesswoman was in the country over the weekend for The Colour Purple concert at the Uhuru Gardens, bringing Nairobi to a standstill.
Zari’s duty roster included a visit to the Kayole Women’s Health Centre alongside gospel singer Size 8. The mother of five also opened cancer screening stations with Nairobi First Lady Primrose Mbuvi and empowered the girl child at the Korogocho slums.
For gracing Nairobi with her presence, Zari reportedly returned home while laughing all the way to the bank.
According to anonymous sources, she earned a handsome Ush37.3 million, which translates to Ksh 1 million.
The source adds that transportation and accommodation costs were over half a million Kenya shillings bringing the total amount used to bring Zari to about Ush56 million.
“Zari was paid Sh1 million. Let me tell you something else, the accommodation and transport costs were over Sh500,000, so that is Sh1.5 million,” the source is quoted by media outlets.
Speaking about the prospect of suing her former partner Diamond for child support, Zari said, “Why should I sue? From my point of view I feel like it’s his responsibility to take care of his kids if he really believes he has to. I don’t see why I should drag him to court to see his kids. For me, I’m not in that space.”
In a recent TV interview, Zari said: “I loved him so much and everyone knows about that. You can go cheat there as a man but when it comes in with madharau, that is when it becomes too much. I felt that my integrity was so low. Like, when my big boys see Diamond misbehaving on social media, they will not have respect for women when they grow up.”
“I asked myself, why do I have to settle for this? My children were insulted on social media. Being the fact that they do not have a father, they will know that in future they need to respect women, and that is why I left,” Zari said, adding that she still loves Diamond despite leaving him.
