Known as Zari The Boss Lady, the multi-talented businesswoman and reality TV star Zari Hassan finally marries her Ben 10 boyfriend Shakib Lukaya. Her love life has been a rollercoaster of relationships with men from various walks of life.
Her journey began with a 12-year marriage to the late Ivan Semwanga, resulting in the birth of three children. However, their paths diverged, leading her to explore relationships with younger men.
One of the most notable was her romance with Tanzanian musician Diamond Platnumz, a man nine years her junior. This high-profile union blessed them with two beautiful children, Latifah Dangote and Prince Nillan.
Zari’s Path to Love
After parting ways with Diamond Platnumz, Zari Hassan’s heart found solace in the arms of 30-year-old Ugandan Shakib Lukaya, yet another younger suitor. With a 12-year age difference, their love defied conventions, and the couple decided to take their relationship to the next level.
In April 2023, Zari and Shakib celebrated their love with a traditional ceremony in Pretoria, South Africa, after more than ten months of dating.
