Speaking of Ugandan celebrities who are forever young, Zari Hassan, real names Zarinah Ttale tops the the list. She has maintained a good skin complexion and a great body. One can easily mistake her for a thirty-year-old.
The socialite has for long claimed she was born in 1980, which means she is 38, turning 39 in September but her cover has been blown. An unknown person leaked a photo of Zari’s Passport on social media and it clearly shows she was born two years earlier than she claims.
According to the passport showing her real name, birth date and nationality among others, Zari was born on September 23, 1978. This means the mother of five will be 41 years old in the next two months.
Zari is bitter
As social media relatives make fun of her for hiding her age, Zari insists she is 39. She is so bitter and says the photo that leaked online was the work of her enemies who want to potray her as a very old woman.
Zari says she was forced to change her age when she was acquiring her South African passport. She further threw jibes at those who are hating on her for looking good.
“Everyone out here posting my passport showing I was born in 1978. That was for my citizenship but I was born on 23rd 1980. You all bi****s be hating coz you ugly and I’m still beautiful when you want me to be 50,” Zari said in a video she posted on her social media.
Wikipedia confused too
In our search for the truth, we checked Wikipedia, the site gives two dates of Zari’s birth. In the first paragraph, Wiki says she was born in 1978, yet in the side bar they say Zari was born in 1980.
Last year, her ex-boyfriend Rasta Rob who was one of the baddest DJs in town back in the day, in an interview with Spark TV, admitted that he still thinks about Zari. He also revealed that he met Zari at the Sailing Club in Jinja in 1996.
He added that she was about 18 years old then. Since we are not so bad at maths, 2019-1996=23+18=41, the age in the passport is not a mistake.
Zari has dated Tanzanian Singer Diamond Platinum after dumping her baby Daddy Ivan Ssemwanga who died one and a half years ago. She is a mother of five, with three belonging to the Late Ssemwanga and two to ex-boyfriend Diamond Platinumz.
Besides Zari, other female whose ages are highly doubted and never come out to say their real age include; Sheebah Karungi who has always claimed 28 year in year out and Desire Luzinda has forever been 25 years old.
