SOCIALIST Zari Hassan has thrown a lavish birthday party for her mom Halima Sultan Hassan sealing off a section at luxurious Serena Hotel in Kampala. The 32-year-old and her hubby Ivan Ssemwanga flew in from South Africa for the birthday event on Saturday (18May13) that saw a dozen close friends and family enjoy a constant flow of red wine and cake.
A source tells UgandaOnline.Net that the amount of champagne that went into the room was just enough to spoil Zari's friends and mom. Ivan was seen handing a present to his mother-in-law. Zari who went back yesterday could not hide her excitement after the birthday bash. "Had a great evening celebrating mom's Bday. Love her lots. Thanks."

Zari has just undergone painful sessions of laser treatment just to get her ex's initial off her right upper leg. This comes at the backdrop of a message Isaac Lugudde aka LK-4 wrote on his wall. "You post all of your drama on facebook..then get upset when people judge you? You must be a special kind of Stupid.!"
Zari followed with this post: "Feeling sorry for that 1 damn a##hole who thinks his thoughts about u have to pop up on his timeline. Haven't u moved on yet? Its clear not! Am a million kms ahead, I see a brother still in the same spot crying over spilled milk. Its spilled, period. Get on mentally too now. Lol"
Zari is cementing her reconciliation with Ivan, the father of her three boys by removing the retired basketball star's initials from her pelvic area. Zari had an affair with Isaac Lugudde, and as a way of cherishing his love, she under went the ink pain just for him.
"Loving my new cover up tat....once it's done all the past will be covered. I should never stoop low & stupid like that again....," Zari said. Meanwhile, much as she has tried to cover it, the initials are still visible. Tattoos are permanent and relationships are not, we hope in future, Zari won't add other lovers on her body.
A friend told her: "Lesson learnt Ivan is good Dad and husband, cut the side dishes aka 'bupwachipwachi' out.

Guilty as Charged. Madam Orange Limo was smoked out sporting a fake Christian Louboutin shoe. When Zari saw the red sole, she rushed for the discounted shoe thinking it was from Italy but in the end, this was an original shoe from China at least going by the heels.
The top most beautiful socialite will go an extra mile in looking trendy and with a limo in her parking lot, $800 for an original CL shoe should not be a problem, thus the conclusion, she was conned. Zari cannot be blamed much because an authentic pair has 'Made in Italy', 'Christian Louboutin' and the shoe size in EUR at the bottom.
On the fake ones, the 'madeinitaly' is one word and if you are not so observant, that is how you fall in the trap.

The socialite was yesterday checking on her bankers down in South Africa but she still managed to show off a slew of her sexy looks and the fierce footwear stole the show much as its winter.
Zari made her way to the bank but trust the 32-year-old, she still found time for some admirable outfit and boots which must have left the bank manager licking his lips all the way. "Sexy self at my bank Manager's office." Zari noted as she showed off her grey body hugging outfit n boots.
Zari was last here during the Mr. Vegas Street Jam show but things didn't go down well with the dad of her three children, Ivan Ssemwanga leading to some altercation of sorts that subsequently led to her missing out on the Badilisha concert. Zari is Chameleone's fan to the point that missing his launch was the last thing she could think of.
During Chameleone's Valu Valu concert, Zari and JH fought for the limelight to show off who had more financial clout but with Zari missing from the Badilisha concert, Judith Heard just grabbed herself a canon camera and assumed the job of a paparazzi to try and make an extra buck.

Tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga and his wife Zari took a commercial break from their relationship and decided to move separate ways. During that time, Ivan hooked light skinned Nickita (pictured above) while Zari teamed up with basket ball star, Isaac Lugudde who did some justice to her 'boiled goodies'.
The lovers later got back together after exploring and quenching their thirst on what they thought was missing from their ten-year-old affair. The two, Isaac and Nickita lost out on the love but gained in one way or the other. Isaac got some good amount of cash from Zari though charges of theft were preferred against him.
When you're friends with loaded Ivan, you get the best gifts. A BMW 335i is what Nickita got for leaving foot prints in Ivan's heart. This was further confirmed when a one Jalil expressed interest in buying the posh ride, but Ivan simply told him of how he had already given it out as a gift to someone.
This comes at a time when cracks are developing in their relationship once again. They recently had a misunderstanding after Ivan suspected that his wife was having some quality time with Jamaican star, Mr. Vegas. One of Zari's latest tweets that she shared on her affair reads in part:
"Relationships are like glass. Sometimes It's better to leave them broken than to hurt yourself putting it back together!" She adds: You can literally miss out on Mr. Right by waiting too long for Mr. Wrong to get right! Let him go!

Cycling is fun and healthy and that's exactly what tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga did last Saturday at Kololo Airstrip during the Auto Show Exhibition. He was joined by his wife Zari who was riding an old scooty bike as they engaged in a competition of sorts.
The Auto Show had different players ranging from Bikers, Ambulances, Vintage cars and so on but now that these guys have seen it all when it comes to bikes, they instead found their fun elsewhere.
Ivan was riding the 'Gaali Hero' bike like Beckham though you could clearly see him losing his stability following the booze that was in his system courtesy of the previous night's Tycoon Swag Party that was held at Club Venom where he sponsored the open bar. Its amazing to see that he could balance on a cycle a few hours later.
Three of their cars were part of the fleet that were exhibited at the UG Auto Show - Kololo Airstrip Independence grounds.

Socialite Zari and her husband Ivan Ssemwanga together with their three boys came to Uganda for their Easter holidays and have been around since then. Zari took off time and went to Katanga slum where she knelt and served the kids with lunch and also donated various gift items.
Last Friday was the Tycoon Swag Party at Club Venom that saw Ivan declare an open bar that led some babes to crawl home. On Saturday morning, Zari was able to convince Clifford Smith, better known as Mr. Vegas to go and do some shopping at her Men's store, The Renaissance Man located at Garden City.
The two then proceeded to Oasis Complex next to Garden city where they bought some candy from Nakumatt supermarket. This is what Zari does best. Somehow she gets a moment with all the stars that come to town like the P-square duo from Nigeria, P-Unit from Kenya who were here last month and now Mr. Vegas.
Meanwhile, Ivan and Zari's cars that included a Lamborghini, Hummer and Chrysler were hired out for the Auto show exhibition at Kololo Air strip that ends today.

On Good Friday, Zari and her sisters toured Katanga slum and donated lots of goodies.

South African based Ugandan socialite, Zari was in town last week together with hubby and as usual had fun doing what they do best, 'Kulya Kash'. She attended the WARID Woman of Substance awards at Serena Hotel and also graced the Club Rouge 9th Anniversary party.
The couple is fond of spending like there is no tomorrow, but on this particular visit, the spending was on low key prompting rumours that the couple had become broke. Zari laughed this off saying that those who hardly know you say a lot before posting a pic of all her cars with these words: ''Don't Hate, Be Inspired''
A few hours later, she unleashed a black twin-turbo V8 Porsche Cayenne valued at $48,850 before tax. This has left many in the Gauteng Province in shock with the rate at which she changes cars like strings. ''Went shopping today waiting for my personalized GP plates." Zari confirmed on her wall.
In the last three months, Zari has been making headlines with Ivan's Lamborghini but this time around, she wants ZARI -GP initials on the registration plates for the Cayenne. In one of the reviews for the Cayenne S model, it's far better than a Range Rover Sport. "It gets to 62mph in 5.7seconds, reasonable fuel consumption and the cabin wraps around the driver.

Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi aka Barbie - has Bobi Wine's portrait inked on her back followed by the word forever. This is another way of saying; I will love you forever and ever. A few months back, there were rumours doing the rounds that the couple was on the verge of breaking up but Barbie came up and said what she uttered 12 years back that she is here to stay.
Bad Black - Then came Bad Black who was better referred to as Mad Black by the way she used to spend before her source of dime came to the lime light. Bad Black was in love with Meddie and felt that the best way to prove her love was to ink her body with Meddie's name.
Bad Black dashed to a fake tattoist who simply used a marker to come up with a fake tattoo and got quite an amount. Shanita later identified an authentic source that inked Meddie's name on her back. Meddie is still in jail though and Bad Black is a fugitive suspected to be in Malaysia. It's not clear if that huge tattoo on her back still exists as the two fell out badly.
Others with tattoos include:
Juliana Kanyomozi on her arm with name inscriptions of her dad, Gerald and her son Keron. In her latest profile on NTV, you can see Maurice Ochol caressing it in admiration.
Zari's Tattoo - Is a combination of 10 stars and initials of her three sons PDQ - Pinto, Didy and Quincy plus one of a coloured flower on her legs. Other tattoos on her body, Isaac Lugudde might be of help here.
Isaac Lugudde - The Big Brother hopeful has so many tattoos on his body that there's hardly any space left though he says, should he go to the Big Brother House, he will add more tattoos to do with Big Brother Africa.
A few months back when Lugudde was still dating Zari, he put 'The Boss Lady' tattoo on his ribs followed by a verse from the bible Gen 2:18 which says that: "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him." but the two have since split and moved on with Zari bouncing back to the father of her three kids as Lugudde hooked up with a one Cynthia.

Zari recently shared hot pics exposing her butt in a swim suit which turned out to be relatively smaller to what folks were used to at least going by some of the comments below:
"Zari your body has disappointed me. I thought you had wide hips and a bigger butt? I'm totally disappointed in you Zari for lying to me."
"God un-earthes secrets!!!Kumbe its artificial bums we have been seeing all along??..."
"This time around you had no chance to wear your bum extension,You should also thank the swimming costume for holding your tummy firm enough for your showbiz as usual.."
Zari wasted no time in retrieving one of those shots when she was still a force to reckon in those matters. The mother of three attributed the change to the weight-loss diet she embarked on sometime back.
She confirmed this on her wall: "When I was fat people talked, lost weight people are still talking claiming I removed bum implants...Jesus what's a gal to do?"

Socialite Zari and her three boys went ice skating for fun but unfortunately for her, she is now nursing minor injuries after dropping hard on her knees. Zari saw her boys doing the sport with ease so she decided to give it a shot.
It was not easy for the leggy mom of three who did move on ice for seconds before falling hard. She resorted to what she does best, tweeting and this is what she had to say:
"Ice skating isn't for everyone...lol This was a bad idea. My boys and bro enjoyed themselves while I fell hard, I gave up and just decided to watch them" Zari has vowed not to stay away from ice skating to the time she perfects.
It's not the first time Zari is getting caught up in similar situations. Last December, she was dancing with her high-heels trying out all sorts of latest strokes she could manage but the heel gave way sending her to the floor.
Ice skating can be done for various reasons that may include health benefits and leisure among others. Zari definitely tried the sport for leisure purposes but ended up paying heavily.
Meanwhile, It's not clear if it was the fall or the weather that let her nipples point in that tight top.

Friends and relatives to Michael Kasirye, socialite Zari Hassan's former bodyguard have reported a case of a missing person with Jinja road police station. Kalisimaati as he was fondly called by pals was last seen at Zari's All White Party at Guvnor last year.
"It's over a month now since we last heard of Michael and to make matters worse, all his known lines are off," a family source said. Kalisimaati used to work at the Centenary based BBQ Lounge until November 2012.
Kalisimaati was one of Zari's most trusted bouncers, but during the night of the White Party, he received a call which he had to attend to from a less noisy area, so he chose to go outside the dancing hall. That was the last time he was seen until today.
Police is now appealing to whoever has any information leading to his whereabouts to come out and help as they carry out investigations in the hunt for Michael Kasirye.
Zari and Ivan left the country this morning after a four-day visit that saw Zari stock her Garden City based stores with Valentine wear and assorted gift items.
Sunday, 03 February 2013
Socialite ZaHa is in town to re-stock her Garden city based Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man stores as part of preparations for Valentine's day.
Zari jetted into the country on Friday and straight on hit Guvnor though she was careful this time not to fall with her high heels as she did the gangnam style. The socialite spent a greater part of Saturday stocking her stores with latest outfits.
The Renaissance Man was stocked with latest designer suits for men, Jeans plus urban style mens wrist watches. Zari Jewels has been stocked with the best Valentine's gifts for 'Her' and for the ladies, The Renaissance Man can be your one stop for Valentine's day gift ideas.
Zari Jewels and the Renaissance Man are located at Garden City basement on Yusuf Lule road.

Facebook is a social network that connects people with friends, and others who work, live and study around them. It has now introduced a graph search facility that allows you to search for posts, pictures and music that your friends like.
But behind all that, there is a group of people that need to be recognized on facebook and Zari prefers to call them obsessed fans and confused admirers otherwise haterz. Last Saturday, Ivan was swimming with his three boys in their home based swimming pool. He decided to share the moment with his friends on facebook.
This got comments trickling in instantly with some accusing Ivan of showing off and others saying that was 'Amaalo' aka local swagg. Zari was alerted by her dolls that 'Omwami' bamutta. Zari grabbed her cell and came to Ivan's rescue who was still getting to terms with what he thought were friends only to post hate comments.
On Zari chipping in, she told one obsessed fan who had referred to their house as very lousy that: "Go ahead and also buy a 6 bedroom house with a pool, entertainment area cinema and then you also refer to that as local swagg." This is my family you are talking about ebilala I don't care but my family obolina kyonoonya.

Socialite Zari is just not about to run out of ideas. Last Month, she hit a bridal shop in South Africa to shop for a wedding gown which left many excited but as it turned out, she used the dress during her White Party that was held at Guvnor on December 27, 2012.
Zari simply detached the 2in1 wedding dress and hit the club. Again its not clear what was going on here but chances are their wedding was called off following the rocks that hit their affair to the extent of coming out and saying that she was not getting married and not in luv with anyone. Using a wedding gown at an All White Party simply leaves a lot ot be desired.
The year 2013 is different for the couple as they have taken their Public Display of Affection to another level. During the boat cruise, Zari almost 'mounted' Ivan on the boat as they celebrated their rekindled love.
Ivan Ssemwanga and Zari's wedding date might not be so much of an issue like bringing the Lamborghini to Kampala was but one thing is for sure, they've learnt that in love you do not only gaze at each other but you also look in the same direction together.

Socialite Zari and former super model Judith Heard were once enemies but looks like part of their new year's resolution was to make up and looking at how events have been unfolding since the past one week, the former enemies are now best of friends.
Judith Heard has been in the US but she made sure the new year finds her in Uganda. Just a few weeks back we revealed how the two still had issues following remarks that were made by JH over Zari's posing right on top of the orange Lambo before it was shipped to Uganda.
The last Saturday of the year, the two, Zari and JH met at the Guvnor dance floor with Zari as the best dancer that night now that she had parked a lamborghini which was perceived as a stunt before it was shipped into the country.
As the two were busy enjoying the video mixing and shaking what their mama's gave them, Zari who was already high fell hard on the dance floor, but before she could get down, she tried to get some support from JH who unfortunately could not handle Zari's weight, thus ending down.
Zari later in her tweet attributed the fall to the dance moves they pulled. "Judithheard those dance moves we pulled at Guvnor led to a hard fall damn ma sexy behind is in pain. I landed on it hope your ok gal."
Judith Heard simply asked the team at Guvnor to do something about the slippery floor and she was worried that at the rate, they won't have any bones left.

American television personality and recording artist Nicole Scherzinger did a stunning photo shoot with a Lamborghini Diablo last year. Just a few days back, Kenya's busiest Jomo Kenyata International Airport (JKIA) was clearing Ivan Ssemwanga's Lamborghini.
As expected Zari was quick at doing what she does best of course with both the vertical doors wide open. Nicole Scherzinger was captured doing the same thing but she did not seem bothered by the doors.
Kenya's rapper also former Big Brother All Stars representative recently relocated to Nigeria and bought an apartment to join his lover Goldie Harvey. Prezzo was seen posing next to a Lambo with both doors open while in Nigeria.
His Gal friend, Goldie equally left the Lambo doors open and we are now wondering if posing next to a Lambo without opening the doors makes it less of a Lamborghini. Goldie and Prezzo took their pics using the same Lambo that was allegedly used in a video shoot.

Zari and Ivan won the award of best dressed couple during the Konvicted to Fashion Celebrity party held at Guvnor a few days back. They beat Chameleone and Daniella, Barbie and Bobi Wine. Club Rouge's Nickita and Gareth were in the competition too.
Zari later hit the dance floor leaving hubby Ivan behind as he sat back relaxing with his other pals and Zari's sister, Zaitun. Galz kept on cat walking right by Ivan just to grab his attention.
One daring babe who we identified as Yvone Vivian, a close pal to Gift ov Kaddo came and sat next to Ivan and started showing him some pics and messages off her smart phone. This forced Zari's sister to ask her leave immediately.
On realizing that Zaitun was serious, Vivian took off for her dear life while hurling all sorts of insults that forced Zaitun to pour water on her. Vivian retaliated by pouring wine on Zaitun. It was t this point that Zari looked at their booth and realised it was on fire, so she rushed to rescue her sister.
Bouncers were called in to rescue the situation.

Its now official socialite Zari and Hubby are back together as a couple. The two were last seen at Guvnor during the 2nd Anniversary celebrations last Friday and just yesterday, they were at Kim Swagga's convicted 2 Fashion party at Ange-Noir..
These two lovers share a number of things together including secret passwords to their social networks which explains how Zari came to land on nude pics sent to Ivan during the time they had separated.
Not shocking at all bearing in mind that Ivan had hooked a gal for himself and Zari had equally moved on. However, other galz who wanted a piece of Ivan and have admired Zari's lifestyle were quick to send their CV's for Ivan to browse through.
As Zari was making her routine check on Ivo's account like she normally does; she landed on saucy pictures of hot curvy babes who had sent through their CV's to her tycoon hubby Ivan Ssemwanga.
Now that Zari had got ID's for the gals who were like six in total, she invited them for an online chat over the matter. Zari who saw no point of sharing the nude pics to her followers told off one of them to at least put on a bra because her boobs were not the type to be paraded just like that.
The exchange was so bitter that we cannot reproduce the messages here. It's funny how what is private finds its way to the public.

Forget the lamborghin's for a short while. A group of orphans in Kalerwe received early christmas when Zari paid them a visit with lots of christmas goodies. Zari who went with her three kids took rice, matooke(bananas), footballs and several bags of posho among others that put a smile on the God's Will Orphans located in Kalerwe.
"God is great, spent my day at God's Grace Orphanage in Kalerwe and had so much fun. I'm happy to have made their X-mas season different." Zari tweeted. Last year Zari Donated Items Worth Shs 4Million to an Orthodox church in Kanyanya.
As part of her charity activities, Zari has visited the women in Luzira prison and donated sanitary towels, toilet papers and diapers to their babies. Zari moves with her kids to ensure that they pick a thing or two from her benevolence acts.
Zari and hubby are in town ahead of their Zari All White Party and the First Ever Boat Cruise.
Sunday, 16 December 2012
South African based socialite Zari Hassan and her on and off Hubby Ivan Ssemwanga are in town. The couple was last seen at Guvnor locking hands during the second anniversary celebrations.
It's eleven days to Zari's All White Party and fourteen days to Ivan's First Ever Boat Cruise that will see free food and booze flowing all day and night. The dress code for the white party is strictly white and for the boat cruise bikini will do.
The charge for the All White Party is 30k for all. Regarding the boat-cruise, the 200 women won't part with any penny but the men will have to pay 100,000. This will entitle them to the full view of the Jamaican booty shakers on board. The number of the gals required on the boat has since been increased to 200 due to public demand.
While in Kampala, the couple will also clear their orange lambo that is being shipped in by air from South Africa to Uganda. However, from what we've gathered, the Lamborghini might end up doing more of a car photo shoot than being driven around.
Ivan was a few days driving a Hummer to his upcountry home, but at some point, he parked it saying that the road was so bumpy. Now what will happen to the Lamborghini whose ground clearance is 5cm.
Tuesday, 11 December 2012
The first Lamborghini to hit Kampala potholes is expected in two weeks time courtesy of tycoon Ivan Semwanga. This is the second Lamborghini to his fleet that he says will be for use in Uganda only.
Zari who is yet to get her Rolls Royce for having Gotten Back to Ivan says she is on top of her game and loving it as she posed right on top of their orange Lambo. Zari confirmed that the orange Lamborghini will be flown to Uganda by next Friday and will be parked right by her stores at Garden City the following week.
Zari's dolls can't wait to at least sit in the ride, take photos with it when it eventually shows up at Garden City based Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man. The Lamborghin has a low ground clearance of about 5 inches and certainly not designed for our roads, may be this one in particular will be raised.
The colour of the Lamborghini leaves some space for another ride bearing in mind that The Zari All White Party is around the corner implying that we could see a white or creme Rolls Royce that matches the theme colour.
Tycoon Ssemwanga is also behind the First Ever Boat Cruise that will see money, booze and babes as the order of the cruise. Now with Bad Black bowing down honourably, we are yet to see what moves those vying for Zari's platform in the social circles will do to outshine her.
Saturday, 08 December 2012
If Judith Heard and Zari were men, they could be best of friends by now having put their differences aside and forged a way forward but being that they are ladies, the game rotates around undermining each other to win.
Judith Heard and Isaac Lugudde are close buddies but from the time Isaac got so close to Zari that even had to put 'The Zari Boss Lady' tattoo on his ribs, this did not amuse her a single bit and since then, she has been getting to terms with it.
A few days back, Zari dumped Isaac to reunite with hubby Ivan Ssemwanga. This has got JH's twitter account busy from the US where she is on holiday with the rest of her family.
Below are some of the tweets: "Intelligence is sexy and shows confidence. Don't act stupid to get attention. That sh*t isn't cute, its just annoying."
"Don't wish for publicity before u know what it's gonna do to u Naye Ojakuba bulungi u wanted news now u hot it. Enjoy the light hehehe"
"Sweetheart when u put your business in the public yes it will be our entertainment, so don't cry saying oh why is this happing hahaha"
Its clear JH is having the last laugh following the catfight they had early in the year over who was to pay what for a Chameleone phone during the auction.
Judith Heard Attacks Zari Hassan @ Valu Valu Show
Judith Heard and Zari Beef Was Just A Continuation
Friday, 07 December 2012
As Christmas is fast approaching, Bad Black is out of prison, Zari and Ivan Ssemwanga have reunited as a couple, exchanged Christmas gifts already to celebrate their rekindled love. The couple has gone ahead to share their latest photo together with Zari seated right on top of Ivan's office desk.
This was followed by very many messages from friends and well wishers who were happy for them. Ivan's close pal, King Lawrence said that he could actually contribute Shs200m if the two were to wed.
It should be recalled that Zari was a few days back trying on a wedding dress in one of the bridal shops down South so it does not surprise if Zari was giving Ivan an update on whether the dress was just right or they needed to try elsewhere.
In the same vein, it will not be surprising if the couple is planning to wed this very year now that Zari has even dumped the basket ball player and told whoever cared to know that Its now official, she is not dating Isaac Lugudde.
Ivan and Zari have three boys and the two have been together for about 12 years. Zari introduced Ivan to her parents home in Munyonyo a day before Christmas in December 2011. The couple was forced to make up at least before that anniversary date bearing in mind that the introduction ceremony was one of a kind with all sorts of gifts in form of cars, cows, cash being passed on to Zari's parents.
In August, the couple split with Zari citing domestic violence. During the break, the two were able to hook up somehow. Zari was with the basketball player as Ivan hooked up Nickita who looked more or less like Zari.
Their in-laws were able to reconcile both parties putting an end to all those babes that were strategizing on hooking up with Ivan.
The couple has now put their differences aside and are about to hit town to coordinate their respective events. Zari is organizing the The All White Party at Guvnor while Ivan is behind the First Ever Boat Cruise that will have over 200 booty-full babes boarding the boat cruise for free.
Tuesday, 04 December 2012
South African based socialite Zari Hassan has been trying out her wedding gown and practising how to walk with it ahead of her day that is yet to be announced. Insider sources say, it should be before X-mas this year though Zari is still tight lipped.
With her controversial love life, It was unfair for her to start off the cat-walk rehearsals before setting the record straight on whether it was Ivan or the basket ball player, Issac Lugudde. This forced her to tweet what she is terming as an official statement on the Ivan-Isaac saga that has left many confused.
"Am not getting married neither I'm I dating Lugudde! My apologies to all parties involved! My kids and work r my priorities." This statement could not go unchallenged as far as the basket baller is concerned but Zari swiftly defended herself.
"We did date a while but as of now I'm setting the record straight", Zari replied to one concerned follower on twitter. Isaac Lugudde was quick at thanking Zari for having cleared the space but his next line left a lot to be desired.
"No need for apologies, PLZ just don't mention my name in ur tweets! Damnnnnn. It's funny how people get used and played in the name of "attention" but it is what it is! Life goes on! lol"
Recently, Isaac got The Boss Lady tattoo on his ribs, still has a wide collection of steamy pics with Zari but all this is fast turning into memories. The former exes, Zari and Ivan are now busy promoting and supporting each other on their forthcoming events.
Zari is behind the Zari All White Party to be held at Guvnor on the 27.Dec.2012 and three days later, it will be the first ever boat cruise by Ivan Semwanga that will take off at Gaba with tycoons paying 1m, Ordinary for men 100,000 and free for the hot bikini babes.

Last month we broke the story of how Zari was to Start her Own Magazine and now in her own words Zari says: "Planning on a magazine come 2013, fashion, lifestyle, health, beauty tips, inspiring stories, counselling and so much more."
The name Zari is not as common as John or Michael and that is how the magazine passes to becalled ZARI otherwise had it been called either of the above names, then it would sound like all John's and Michael's own it.
Since Zari is her name, some critics were quick to ask whether this is another avenue to talk about herself, but the socialite was quick to say that: "It's not about me, Its a public magazine, It will have nothing about "Zari" except the name which is the brand, even the cover page models won't be me."
Through her wall, Zari was inviting for ideas on what to feature in the magazine and this was one of the responses: "There should be a kids corner and something that addresses the community instead of having skimpy dressed use women, you should highlight issues like domestic violence, ritual murders, corruption, poor road network, the decreasing reading culture and if possible help or partner with some rural community libraries so that they can implement their plans, adult literacy etc."
The African Woman Magazine was one of the best magazines in town but now that it's off the news stands, we only hope the ZARI magazine will be able to bridge the gap now that Sylvia and Zari are close buddies.
This year has seen Zari do more of investing starting with Zari Jewels, The Renaissance Man (Men's Suits) and now the ZARI Magazine with its inaugural issue expected in March 2013.

Today is 'November Thanksgiving Day' in the USA which is celebrated every fourth Thursday of November in remembrance of the pilgrims and to give thanks. Isaac Lugudde is equally celebrating this holiday having been in the US for a greater part of his tender life.
In his message Isaac wrote: "I'm so thankful to those that continuously hold me up and have my back, front and side." These included family, basketball teammates and his ex-wife among others. "My ex-wife regardless of what, the love is still there and my prayers go out to you in your trying time."
The basketballer left out Zari on the list but its understandable at least going by what he tweeted shortly after; "I'm in a happy relationship with a lot of ups and downs! Happy: emotionally being on a rollercoaster but on it with a person you love."
Now Zari managed to miss the Sean Paul Concert but sneaked into the country to check on Isaac to be sure all was well following his two page interview with pics of them holding and kissing in the mighty Red Pepper. She flew back to South Africa after two days but during that time, she was 'undercover' and it was only Isaac Lugudde and a few of her dolls in her circles that learnt of her being around.
On December 27, Zari has organised the Zari All White Party which Ivan Semwanga, the father of Zari's 3kidz has confirmed to attend but we are only watching that space because Isaac Lugudde(with a boss lady tattoo on his ribs) will also be in attendance at Guvnor on that day.
Its not clear if Ivan will come with Nickita because it looks like she is equally not happy as Ivan is on rampage. First he advertises for single ladies to contact him on behalf of his single and searching friend 'King' and being that he is loaded and doing 'Abanonya' of sorts, single ladies are flooding his inbox.
On the other hand, Zari has been invited for the boat cruise that is being organised by Ivan but she has distanced herself from that function that threatens to be a beauty contest with 'Ogas' dishing out dollars Nigerian style to the best gals that look nice in swim-suits.

Singer Iryn Namubiru Morel has spoken out after being battered by ex hubby last Sunday and she is now on the same page with Zari of denouncing domestic violence.
Commenting from Paris, Iryn wrote on her wall: "No no no noooooooo to domestic violence. Most especially by someone whose life you haven't been sharing for over 4 years. No to death threats. No to domestic violence. One can die in less than a minute."
Apparently, Iryn and hubby separated over four years back but she has tried to keep it a top secret until last Sunday when she nearly met her creator at Gare Du Nord Train Station.
Their case is before Court that is yet to decide on who takes custody of the kids who are currently with the 'Nabulo' singer. Iryn had travelled to Holland for a short holiday with the kids but her ex Frank Morel hadn't known of the trip, instead he thought that Iryn had taken off with the kids and that's why he reacted that way.
In September, Iryn filled two cases of domestic violence against her husband. The first one was on Sept 12 and less than two weeks later, Iryn dashed to report another case.
Morel wants Iryn to be with him and the kids in France but Iryn has her music career that she equally loves and would now rather dump him for good with the beating that has been upgraded to neck squeezing.
Meanwhile, Zari sends out her love to Iryn during the hard times..talk of birds of the same feathers flocking together. Zari has just had her share of a beating and she could be the best person to advise Iryn as of now.

After UBC suspending her reality show following the steamy kiss they had on a boat cruise with one top fashionista, Zari has devised other means of living her fabulous lifestyle after taking over Bad Black's space.
We told of how in-laws from all sides held a meeting to reconcile the two parties after both Zari and Ivan had moved on. The meeting that was held at Serena Hotel ended and all those that attended were convinced the couple was set to make up.
The memory of Ivan holding Nickita's boob only makes matters worse. The couple had made up but when Zari recalled the Nickita boob saga, the beating and the suffering she had been through all these years, tried out life without Ivan, she said 'mbe nze ndobye' meaning that she was not going back.
This forced Ivan to come up with an offer of a Rolls Royce if she accepted to come back to his life. A Rolls Royce is estimated at close to a billion shillings before taxes. The problem is that when it comes to rides, Zari has seen it all so you need to try out other tricks and not cars. Zari has a Chrysler, AudiQ7, Range Rover Sport, Merc and occasionally drives Ivan's Lamborghini.
In her latest message, Zari says: "Forgiving and forgetting is the 1st step to healing and moving on. We will remain great parents, business partners, friends and wish the public to respect our space during this time."
It looks like a 'joking subject' but the house is on fire. You all remember when Ivan invited friends for Zari's birthday at Guvnor only to turn out that the birthday gal was down in South Africa.
Now more shocking info just coming in is that once Zari accepts Ivan back to her life(If she says YES), she will not only get a Rolls Royce but their wedding will be held before the year end, just like was the case with their introduction ceremony last year. Watch this Space!

Thursday, 01 November 2012
Zari is back with the All White Party that will see revellers dressed in white from head to toe and the entry fee will be 30k.
This will be a Champagne and bling packed night. Zari's stores at Garden City are already stocking trendy white outfits, white gold and bling that revellers could buy to fit the dress code for the night.
The party will be held at Guvnor on the 27.Dec.2012. The couple that made up a few days after a bitter split have started off their love journey on a new page and its a Rolls Royce for Zari should she say YES to Ivan's proposal.
Ivan has already proposed in style and If the response from Zari is a YES, then a Rolls Royce will follow at least to compensate for the beating and the bad blood that has been brewing between the two lovers.
She is still thinking about it though. Its highly likely she will say yes and being creme in colour, she could use it during the All White Party at Guvnor next month.

Wednesday, 24 October 2012
Following a family meeting held at Serena Hotel last Monday, the celebrity couple that had taken a break four months back is now on kissing terms and back together leaving basketball player Isaac and soupy Nickita heart broken.
It's not clear if the reasons that led to the break up have been fully resolved but what we know for now is that after the Monday meeting with in-laws from both parties, Ivan and Zari agreed to work things out and their first night together was yesterday in South Africa.
The couple was all over each other like new lovers who had just met on a night out. Zari tweeted that: "Just touched SA base oba UG yandoga, miss it mob already but miss ma kids more so no regrets....."
The news of the break-up was a shocker to many who had known this couple for the last 12 years and bearing in mind that Ivan had spent over a billion shillings on their introduction ceremony in Munyonyo last year, it was shocking to many.
During the short break, Isaac Lugudde was assuming Ivan's shoes by hobnobbing with Zari while Ivan hooked a one Nickita whose skin complexion was exactly like that of Zari, meaning that much as she was gone, he still needed her in his life.
Ivan has always been a laid back person but when Zari's picture with Lugudde leaked, he came out of his shell and started spending like there was no tomorrow. This was money that he could have otherwise been spending on Zari but because of the Lugudde issue, he decided to give it out in a 'KiNigerian' style.
For now Nickita can officially step aside as a side dish as the couple fastens their seat belts for bumpy rides.

South African based Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan will early next year start her own magazine after getting a few tips from best female friend Sylvia Owori of the collapsed African Woman Magazine.
This is after opening up two fashion shops, Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man located at Garden City basement. Now the latest info coming in is that 'The Boss Lady' is setting up a publishing empire through her magazine that will feature fashion trends, beauty and make-up tips among others.
With the first issue expected to hit the news stands in Feb 2013, Zari is in the country soliciting for the best team that will see Ugandans witness another glossy magazine like African Woman.
Zari split with hubby Ivan Ssemwanga four months back and since then, the socialite has been busy opening up businesses under her name and paying less attention to the projects they started as a couple. Zari thinks of her shops more than the Apollo Kaggwa hotel which is under construction.
Meanwhile, Ivan Ssemwanga has given his new catch Nickita his BMW personalized with (IVAN8) plates and he is currently on the lookout for a house for his beau..!

What a boob! Tycoon Ssemwanga was caught in a pose similar to that of his ex Zari and new lover Isaac Lugudde.
- Nickita is Ivan's new lover
- Basketballer Isaac Lugudde is hobnobbing with Socialite Zari.
Ardent followers of soaps should by now be comparing scenes in their favourite soap operas after the Ivan-Zari split which is now turning out to be dramatic. First it was the leaked photo of Isaac and Zari but in a manner that left many wondering how one could rest his arm on a woman's boob who is not his wife and yet a mother of three.
It was not long before Ivan Ssemwanga otherwise Zari's ex with new catch only identified as Nickita were smoked out from Serena Hotel. Photos to that effect are featuring on the front page of our gallery.
What is disturbing though is the picture of Ivan holding Nickita's boob and azz as he spoke on his cell phone. Could this be in retaliation to that of Isaac holding Zari's boob!
Meanwhile, in one of Zari's latest posts, it's not clear whether it's aimed at Isaac or Ivan but the message is certainly for one of them. "Man up for ur actions n stop bullshitin' n trashin' me#Coward! Real men stand up for their actions n take blame as it only shapes em n turns em into better species#real talk."

As you are busy getting to terms with the Zari-Lugudde issue snoops have landed on exclusive pictures of tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga and his new catch only identified as Nickita.
The couple was spotted at Serena Hotel with Nickita showing some of her hot pics to Ivan off her smartphone and in another, the couple was acting like they were on honeymoon with Ivan gently feeling Nickita's behind.
Trust Ivan, Nickita is as light as Zari and their lower legs are more or less the same. Not much is known about Nickita for now but she is certainly more than ready to kick off with the steamy romps with the tycoon.
Isaac on the other hand is busy pouring out his heart for the boss lady. He confirmed to some of his close pals that he has 'The Boss Lady' tattoo around his ribs. The Boss Lady is a reality TV show by Zari on UBC.
Latest info coming through of course from insiders indicates that trouble stems from the Shs190m Zari wired to Lugudde at the robbery Forex Bureau. The couple is set to share the property that is listed in the couple's names as a requirement by law in South Africa.
Zari is in the country after jetting in on Wednesday to oversee operations at her two stores, Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man located at the Garden City basement.

The match between the Uganda Cranes and Zambia's Chipolopolo saw one fan who acted out of the ordinary bearing in mind that the last time we had seen such actions was when the fake tycoon Mike Ezra was around.
Ivan Ssemwanga who is now better known as the estranged husband to Zari gave the Uganda Cranes Shs10m in cash and promised Shs5m for all the goals scored. This kind of motivation saw the Uganda Cranes beat the African Champions in the 90 minutes before crossing to a penalty shoot-out. This is when Uganda succumbed to Chipolopolo but after putting up a spirited fight.
Ivan paid over Shs2m to charter a helicopter that airlifted him to Namboole for the Uganda VS Zambia match, sponsored 10 fans with all expenses from South Africa to Uganda to watch the game live at Mandela National Stadium (Namboole).
Ivan has been keeping a low profile but from the time he fell out with his wife Zari, he is determined to see her back at all costs and spending is one of the tricks he is using but Kampala babes are now all over him that he is lost for choice . The question is Who is Ivan Ssemwanga?
Ivan Ssemwanga went down South in 2002 with the help of his cousin Kyeyune aka Cheune who is on the record for loving posh rides and settled in an area with so many Sangoma's. He must have gotten overwhelmed with the seer business that he was left with no choice but to join them. He is referred to as Shaba Wa Shaba 9 while with his peers in South Africa.
On realizing the success of his business, he decided to venture into education services. Ivan set up Brooklyn Colleges which has 6 branches spread across Durban, Pretoria and Jo'Burg specializing in IT, Mining and Policing services among others.
In Uganda, he is constructing a hotel on Sir Apollo Kagwa, has several houses in Bunga, Munyonyo, Mutungo and unconfirmed reports have it that a hotel in Mukono is in the offing. A combination of all those projects leaves him with over Shs700m in profits per month.
He has two posh houses in Sandton and Pretoria, spent over a billion on his introduction ceremony to Zari last year but mid this year, Zari quit her marital home under the guise of domestic violence.
Ivan trailed her for sometime but to his surprise, Zari was having a ball with toyboy Isaac Lugudde. This has raised concerns with what is so magical with broke basketballer Isaac Lugudde.

Tuesday, 16 October 2012
Professional basketball player Isaac Lugudde aka LK4 has come out to throw some light on his relationship with South African based Ugandan socialite, Zari.
Zari being a loaded woman, close pals to the basketball player were drawing conclusions that he was in it for money, but he thinks otherwise.
"First, let's get this as a fundamental understanding: money or gain of material wealth, can never bring u happiness or love. Me using her, well, no, not even close. I'm not from Uganda, as y'all know, I was born and raised in USA, I made news when I arrived to Uganda with my brother, Mike Ezra, as y'all know him...."
When he revealed how close he was to Mike Ezra, many just concluded that Zari was in for a raw deal. interestingly, Zari's Ex is behaving just like Mike Ezra of late.
Isaac is faced with robbery charges of Shs100m from a forex bureau after a suspect in the case was got with a (facebook) picture of him but he says Ivan is behind all this. "Ivan is trying everything he can to put me away" Isaac noted on his wall regarding the robbery case.
One of his followers on facebook was forced to ask him how he could rest his arm like that on a married woman, his response just left many perplexed. "Have u ever heard the saying "one man's trash, is another man's treasure'' Well I guess that says it all."
He crowns it all by saying: I have a tattoo on my rib that says ''The Boss Lady'' and adds a quote from the bible, Gen 2:18 ("It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him." )
Isaac and the wife divorced so its as though he is confirming that Zari is a perfect helper for him. Meanwhile, Zari who confirms she is stressed a little bit over the matter but only has three men to worry about and those are her three little kids.
We are all just watching this space to see where all this ends up. Meanwhile, It should be recalled that early this year, there was a scuffle in the Club Silk washrooms between Sue Ochola and Zari and now we are wondering, did it have anything to do with the basketball player? watch this space!

Photos of Zari and her new found love have leaked.
A photo of Zari and basket ball star Isaac Lugudde in a lovey dovey pose is buzzing on social media networks. Zari a mother of three separated with hubby Ivan Ssemwanga four months back after a fight in London.
Socialite Zari is now determined to move on as seen from the above pic at a certain top hang out with the couple in a Public Display of Affection (PDA). Many people were so surprised about the developments and this is what she had to say:
"What's so unbelievable? U wanted him single he is so? U should b happy...so don't sweat it. word!" Isaac was dumped by his wife recently and with the cracks in Zari's affair, the timing could just be right.
On the other hand, Ivan's lifestyle has totally changed and its tending to that of Mike Ezra. Ivan has always been loaded but splashing his dime on expensive rides, holidays and partying.
Just before the Uganda cranes match against Zambia's Chipolopolo, he donated Shs10m, he is yet to add another 5m for the goal that Geoffrey Massa scored, made a grand entrance at Namboole in a chopper before his customised hummer (IVAN9) drove him to the gates.
Its still puzzling many how things are failing to work out between these two after 12 years, 3 kids and not forgeting the money coupled with the lavish introduction ceremony that was held at the end of last year.

In 2007, sports philanthropist and Uganda Cranes fan Mike Ezra came with a chopper at Namboole to watch the game between Uganda Cranes and Nigeria. On winning, he gave them millions of shillings.
This is exactly what Zari's ex Ivan Ssemwanga did. He was dropped by a blue chopper into a hummer that brought him to the gates with his 'fans' cheering him on.
Earlier on Ivan had donated Shs10m to the Uganda Cranes and promised Shs5m for every goal scored. This means that with Geoffrey Massa's goal in the first half, this will be an additional Shs5m.
It could have been even better had the Uganda Cranes taken on the African Champions team Chipolopolo who won by 9 goals to 8 in a penalty shoot-out. Ivan is trying to assume Mike Ezra's position just as Zari took over Bad Black's social scene.
Meanwhile, he sponsored 10 fans from South Africa with return Air tickets just to come and watch the Uganda VS Zambia match in Namboole.

Ivan Ssemwanga's BMW clamped at Garden City basement parking.
Two weeks back, Ivan Ssemwanga was busy inviting pals for Zari's open bar birthday party which in the end never took place as Ivan was too busy that he missed his flight to Uganda.
Zari's 32nd birthday party was instead celebrated at Melrose Arch in South Africa with a few family members and friends though during that time, Zari kept most of her time tweeting and facebooking.
On Monday, Ivan's BMW was spotted clamped at Garden city. Cars at Garden city are clamped when they normally stay beyond closing hours. Its not yet clear how long the vehicle had stayed to warrant the action.
Meanwhile, Zari is in high preparations for the launch of her latest store at Garden City, The Renaissance Man, which launch will double as the Zari White Party. Watch this space!
Sunday, 23 September 2012
Zari is proud to have made 32 today and still looks younger than her age. Until Friday, Ivan was busy calling up on his friends to show up for the birthday party of the year at Guvnor-Angenoir.
The original plan was to have an open bar birthday party that could see revellers crawling after taking all tribes of booze but at the end of it all, the birthday gal, the party organizer were no where to be seen.
It has been widely rumoured that these two have separated and we had hoped that the birthday fete would be the right time to clear the space being that this was Zari's special day and a justifiable way of expressing their love.
This wasn't the case. Ivan is now saying he missed his flight as he was busy. "Am very sorry about the b'day party, was very busy n I missed my flight, but don't worry am planning on buying a private jet next so I wouldn't hustle. Happy Week ahead"
Now the rumour that Ivan and Zari have separated could be true. Zari was in Kampala less than a week back making final touches to her latest store, The Renaissance Man, but she did not hint on the Guvnor party and knowing Zari, she could have made sure that she alerts all her dolls to come and party with her, but this did not happen.
Zari who celebrated her birthday in South Africa put on a bare back butt revealing long outfit and cruised the white Lamborghini to some unknown destination. Trust Ivan, he is now trying to confuse the whole issue with his latest ride to his fleet that happens to be a Bentley.

Tuesday, 18 September 2012
The Uganda social scene has seen all sorts of 'celebs' in form of socialites who have been around and left an impact on those who look up to them or better still wish they could be in their shoes, but one thing is for sure, it's becoming clear that they are going down faster than they came up.
Driving expensive personalized cars, throwing parties, making statements that easily make it to the front pages are some of the characteristics that best describe these 'tycoons'. Below are the celebs, we might soon forget unless when something out of the ordinary happens.
- Hit the limelight in the year 2000 and his buying a wrist watch at USD250,000 did not fail to make news, traveling by chopper to watch a football match, threatened to buy Leeds football team and the last we heard of him was during the USD3M Emin Pasha press conference. The next time he surfaced was in Kenya when he was arrested for issuing a bounced cheque only to be driven in an old Peugeot to court.
- The former city socialite is still fresh but at least the nine months she conquered Kampala have left a mark on those who were around her and benefiting from the Shs11bn that she spent to the time it landed her a four year jail term. Clubs (particularly Club Rouge that hosted her 22birthday), Bars, Hotels benefited from the dime she embezzled from her former lover David Greenhalgh.
- The mother of three boys loves cars, traveling, shoes and shopping. Life has never been the same from the time she met South African businessman Ivan Ssemwanga. She has tried music, a reality show, held white parties, drives cars ranging from a Chrysler, Benz, Hummer, AudiQ7 among others.
She is now not riding on the same horse with Ivan who she introduced to her parents late last year. She has resorted to spending her time opening up shops as a way of expanding her mini empire.
- She's been an authority on the social scene for the last ten years. Started the first modeling agency, Ziper Models, supplying models in East Africa. She met her fiance Per Munk Nielsen and together they started African Woman Magazine which has now closed shop. Her boy friend Malik who lost two professional fights sponsored by Sylvia is battling theft charges in court. Garden City based Sylvia Owori store was even reduced in size, implying that they are now occupying less space than they previously did.

The father to Zari's 3Kidz- Ivan Ssemwanga.
Contrary to rumours that the couple has split, Ivan is busy inviting pals for the wife's open bar birthday party that will be held on 23 Sep, 2012 at the posh Guvnor-Angenoir.
The couple was recently involved in a bitter fight to the extent that Zari came out publicly denouncing domestic violence. She had actually pulled out but had to reconsider her decision after the sisters pleaded with her to keep right their for the sake of the kids.
Zari is currently in the country to over see the launch of her latest shop The Renaissance Man. Its not clear though if her current visit doubles as the launch for her new shop and her birthday.
The socialite has been throwing all sorts of parties in the past and her birthday is one of those moments that call for a big celebration just like Desire and Judith Heard did in the recent past.
The Renaissance Man by Zari to Open Soon
Friday, 14 September 2012
South African based socialite Zari Hassan is in the country to launch her latest shop, The Renaissance Man three months after launching the Garden City based Zari Jewels which mainly deals in bridal accessories, bracelets, designer wrist watches among others.
Now the socialite who simply puts it as expanding her empire has come up with something for the men which will be having designer men's suits, shirts at affordable prices at Garden City.
In her wall post she says: "Here to expand ma mini legacy/empire with d opening of The Renaissance Man." She adds that: "Look no further for corporate suits,groom and gents accessories...luv 2 c u there."
Zari joins other socialites like Judith Heard with her Flaunt Your Style store at Forest Mall and Sylvia Owori's fashion line at Garden City. Zari is into music, mother of three, has a reality show, and now Zari Jewels and The Renaissance Man.

South Africa based Zari The Boss Lady was forced to put all her activities on hold just to fly back to Uganda and sort out the mess that had caused her shop (Zari Jewels) to be closed by the Inland Revenue.
Zari confirmed on her wall that her 'baby' was open and customers should grace themselves for new stock. However, what shocked our snoop was the fact that she was not wearing any ring.
Now this is not surprising bearing in mind that these two had a fight recently and Zari had actually thought of walking out on Ivan, the father of her three children but later had to reconsider her decision on the advise of her sister, Zuleha.
Zari and Ivan were to wed soon after a lavish introduction ceremony in December last year that saw Ivan give three hundred cows, a Hummer car to Zari as a present, a Golf to the Muko and a Spacio to Zari's mother plus an assortment of other gifts.
The couple later treated revellers to an After party at Serena hotel with performances from Jose Chameleone, Moze Radio and Aziz Azion among others. Ivan and Zari's house is on fire and the wedding is not on their priority list. Ivan was seen hanging out with the boys alone, something that was rare at least from close sources to the couple.
Ivan Hangs Out with the Boys, Zari Missing in Action
Zari Jewels Closed by Uganda Revenue Authority
Thursday, 02 August 2012
Its not clear if this is a stunt meant for the The Zari Boss Lady reality show but what is clear to us is that the shop has been closed for several days now after officials from Uganda Revenue Authority raided the office after a tip off that the luxury items in the shop had sneaked into the country illegally.
The URA Officials are establishing a few facts pertaining to the taxes related to these luxury items which include bracelets, necklaces and wedding rings among others and once they are done, the shop will be opened.
So if you were planning to go for shopping at Zari Jewels, you might have to wait to the time it opens once again. The shop was launched at the end of June and it had just operated for a month when the URA operatives swung into action.
This and the fight with the husband recently have made her not a happy woman.

South African based seer Shaba Wa Shaba 9 real name Ivan Ssemwanga was yesterday at the circus show in South Africa with their three boyz trying to keep themselves busy from The Boss-Lady who is steadily recuperating from the bitter fight a few weeks back.
In the past, the couple used to grace happening places as a family but both parents now have assigned specific days with the boys. Yesterday was Ivan's turn to spend time with the kids. Zari confirmed that their house is on fire by asking Ivan why one of the boys was not putting on a warm garment.
Ivan was very quick at telling her that it was the car. The boy is seen freezing in cold weather as everyone around them is in warm clothing. This did not go down well with their mom.
The couple was involved in a serious fight that almost brought their affair to an end had it not been for one of the sisters' to ask Zari to reconsider her decision for the sake of the kids.
Ivan had tried to cover up the fight by diverting attention under the pretext that Zari had got an accident but Zari's sibling Zuleha Hassan applauded her for having denounced domestic violence and even referred to Ivan as a b**st.

Friday, 20 July 2012
After launching the Zari Jewels at Garden City, Zari and Ivan went to the UK for a shopping spree but something went terribly wrong that Ivan just rounded her up like he did four months back in the Club Silk washrooms. The beating must have been serious this time that Zari thought of walking out on him.
Ivan covered this up by saying that "Zari has been in a car crash." Zari was active around the same period though denouncing domestic violence.
One of Zari's sister confirmed this by trashing Ivan's version: "My opinion is my sis is not in a car crash its that man of a beast who planned that so he can abuse her what an idiot. If Zari was in a crash, the first thing she would have done could have have been to call mum. Gal 'Im really happy you stepped up ur a hero to all the women out there."
Zari came out to say that: "Domestic violence is a no no, had my share for a long time and I'm officially out." This is what got Zuleha Hassan another sister of Zari to intervene at least for the sake of the children.
Its Zuleha's posting which got over 21 approvals that brought the matter to rest. In her posting she told her that she was better off having an alive happy sister than a rich dead one.
Zuleha told her: "Zari, only you know what you've passed through all these years. All I'm gonna say is that save yourself and your children. I would rather have an alive sister than a rich dead one.
This is when Zari ceased fire and reminded herself on how much she loves her sons so much who know her in and out. Zari introduced Ivan to her parents in Munyonyo after 11 years of exploring each other and over 300 cows were brought for the parents but because they could not stay in the Munyonyo home, the cows disappeared after the function.

"Its one thing to plan a party but the kind of crowd u have or that appears in the pics also matter.lol"
That was a tweet by Judith Heard a few days back. Now we all know the last party to be held was the launch of the Zari Jewels and looking at the fight they had in March, Judith Heard was not supposed to grace this launch.
Sylvia Owori who happens to be Judith Heard's former boss was among those who turned up for the launch of Zari Jewels.
These three are now business rivals bearing in mind that Judith Heard has JHFYS fashion line at Forest Mall which she could have put on Garden City but because of the Sylvia Owori Store that is based at Garden city, she decided to put it elsewhere.
Now having scanned our social environment, we concluded that the above remarks were aimed at Zari who organised the party and Sylvia as the two have been having issues.
Judith Heard was a model with Sylvia Owori but according to her, she was not being paid enough money until Mr. Right came her way and since then, she is now a competitor of her former boss.

Its now official we have two reality shows but looks like the actors and actresses behind these 'movies' are under pressure to ensure that they have new episodes running every week.
A case in point is the tyre rolling off from Bobi Wine's Escalade, the cleaning at Mulago Hospital this morning among others, chances are some of these activities are meant for the Omubanda Wa Kabaka show. So if you thought that it was a big deal for the Escalade tyre to roll off, don't be surprised if this is a stage managed stunt to create a real life scene for the show.
Zari has even been forced to change cos on some of her projects from the time she thought of the reality show. A case in point is the former hostel on Sir Apollo Kagwa that was later changed to a hotel after Zari realised that she could generate better mileage from the hotel than a hostel once featured in her reality show.
The first episodes of the Zari-The Boss Lady show had businesses in South Africa which could not be verified by most viewers of the show locally and yet the hotel project was taking long to be completed, she very quickly came up with a business idea and that was a jewellery shop at Garden City. Its being launched today.
Don't be surprised if the next episodes are featuring the latest events now that they are reality shows. It's amazing though how much one has to go through just to have a reality show.
Meanwhile, Omubanda Wa Kabaka is organic as they use resources within Magere and therefore affordable as opposed to The Boss Lady which has to juggle between UK, South Africa and Uganda among others.

If you thought the war between top socialites Judith Heard and Zari Hassan is over, you need to read this.
In the just concluded Miss Uganda function that took place at Kampala Serena Hotel a week back, Judith Heard reserved table number '23' in the VIP section which had the likes of loaded Dubai based Prince Karim and his better half Tracy Bora and Iryn Namubiru among others.
Zari who is currently in South Africa booked a table in the VIP section at Shs1m and that table was right next to Judith Heard's. The empty table was guarded by bouncers may be to ensure that the special instructions of the table being next to Judith Heard's were fulfilled.
A man who tried to occupy the table had it rough when an official from the Miss Uganda contest organisers asked him to leave or he pays the Shs1m that Zari had paid. This is when snoops realised that the table had been reserved for Zari.
Zari and her entourage were nowhere to be seen till the very end of the Miss Uganda contest that saw Phiona Bizzu take the crown.
The Boss Lady will stop at nothing to prove her point. Meanwhile, her Jewellery shop at Garden City will be opening in three days time.

Omubanda Wa'Kabaka a reality show featuring Bobi Wine and family is one of the most popular shows airing on Bukedde TV channel 148 for those on DSTV. The show which started airing weeks after Zari's 'The Boss Lady' show show-cases Bobi Wine and how he goes about his chores at his Magere mansion.
This particular show which was the third episode had a scene when Jose Chameleone paid a visit to the Bobi Wine's making Barbie prepare a heavy meal that included meat, chicken, Matooke among others for the Chameleone's to feast.
Interestingly, Zari's show airs on UBC at 8:30pm on Wednesday and on the same day an hour later, Omubanda Wa Kabaka airs Bukedde TV clearly giving you an insight in these local celebs lives.
Barbie features prominently on the Omubanda Wa Kabaka unlike The Boss Lady that seems to be preoccupied by Zari her kids and a little bit of her hubby Ivan Ssemwanga. Daniella who happens to be a close buddy to Barbie(Bobi's wife) is contemplating on coming up with a similar show featuring the Valu Valu star. Watch this space!

Bad Black's shop on Zainab Aziza building located on the third floor is empty and locked at least from the last visit by snoops. The shop that was dealing in clothes and hair extensions closed several months back after the former money bags started chocking on rent due to the Shs11bn embezzlement case that left her dry.
Pregnant with David Greenhalgh's kid at least from what she says, Bad Black last appeared in a special hire or cab for the last court session she attended and the very last one, she was not able due to labour pains.
On the other hand, Socialite Zari is not leaving any stone unturned as she ventures into jewellery business by opening a shop on Garden City, the same location with Sylvia Owori fashion with whom they shared a passionate kiss recently.

The 'Sylvia-Zari Kiss' has been the talk of the town for the last one week with Zari trying to respond but now the other person in the kiss has also come out to clear the space and also apologized.
"It was a truth or dare game on the boat cruise and Zari and myself had a french kiss, sorry if we offended anyone. We were also filming her reality show and giving some support to my girl."
Not very different from what Zari said. Like we mentioned earlier, all the Zari drama you are seeing and you are yet to see is meant for her reality show so if you have an empire to protect and you are near her, you had better think fast.
Sylvia is good at exploiting situations. The last time Mr.Flavour of the Ashawo fame was in the country, she teamed up with Bad Black for an exclusive party in which they danced and touched the star all over.
When Zari came up with the reality show, the two have been hanging out together like siamese twins. During the launch of the Zari reality show at Golf Course Hotel, it was Sylvia who was ensuring that all was well before Zari appeared for the press briefing.
However, after all this she seems to have learnt a thing or two and has promised to be careful with who she hangs out with bearing in mind that she has put in at least 12 years in her fashion business of Sylvia Owori as a brand and not about to trade it with anything.
"im no body guard to zari or bad black as monitor comments, im really offended by it, i have to really look carefully ho i hang with as people starting to judge me based on this, im a very open minded person but will have to re think who i hang with as it is affecting my SYLVIA OWORI brand." She concluded on her wall.

Zari-The Boss Lady reality show was launched two weeks back and so far two episodes have been aired on Uganda's National Television, UBC.
Those who have watched the show are now split into two groups, the thumbs up and the thumbs down. The thumbs down who are threatening to out number the Thumbs up have even gone an extra mile in coming up with alternative things to do as opposed to watching the Zari reality show.
Zari has mastered her game so well. As a move to divert the attention of the reality show 'haters', she teamed up with fashionista Sylvia Owori in the now 'Sylvia-Zari Kiss' but instead all this is blowing up in her face like a tsunami.
Realizing that the kiss stunt which she casually played off as a truth and dare game was causing more harm than good, she grabbed her smart phone and smartly passed on a message to the 'haters'

The boat cruise kiss between Sylvia Owori and South African based Zari Hassan got the social networks busy with what the two socialites were up to when they decided to tongue wrestle each other on Easter Monday.
Realising that the kiss is likely to cost her after launching her reality show and claiming to be a role model to many, Zari dashed to her wall to try and 'clear the space' on what she termed as blowing the whole thing out of proportion.
Zari said that this was a truth and dare game and there was nothing serious. She also added that their husbands were on the same boat and were following everything closely. Some of her followers reminded her that her and Sylvia are mothers and have a lot of people out there looking unto them.
Zari whose second episode of her reality show (The Boss Lady) aired yesterday on UBC is now faced with demands that the next screening should now have a clip of the Sylvia-Zari kiss, JH-Zari Chameleone phone instead of what they are watching.
Over 70 people were on a boat cruise on Easter Monday that was sponsored by Zari for her close buddies and family members. Queen dancers were on the boat punishing men in the groin areas with their erotic dances but the highlight of the boat ride was the Zari-Sylvia kiss.

City Socialite Zari Hassan and fashionista Sylvia Owori are in the news yet again but this time not the usual Zari cat fights but a change of tactics. On Easter Monday, Zari and her now best friend plus queen dancers got onto a boat to have some fun.
The boat cruise was organized and taken care of by Zari in terms of costs pertaining to it not leaving out the queen dancers to torture guys with lap dances, Zari's family members and hubby, Sylvia Owori's toyboy Malik Kaliisa all totalling to about 70 were on board.
The boat had all tribes of booze and as the ride went on with the booze taking its toll on the partiers, kissing n touching was the order of the boat ride. Ivan and Zari were also seen kissing for the first time in public.
However, what perplexed those on board was the Zari-Sylvia kiss. The two kissed passionately with their eyes closed and did not care about a thing. Sylvia has been in the news before when she kissed the Independent's Magazine boss Andrew Mwenda.

Zari Hassan's show has premiered on UBC. At exactly 8:30pm, The-Zari Boss Lady reality show was showing on Uganda Broadcasting Corporation. The reality show which will be on air for the next fourteen weeks was showing Zari taking her kids to school, preparing breakfast for the family, hitting club to perform one of her songs, and a day at one of her schools among others.
May be the show will pick as time goes by but the first show did not cut it as expected may be because all the recordings in the first show were shot from South Africa. Episodes shot from Uganda are likely to be more interesting because there is quite a lot to relate with.
During the launch, Zari was asked if scenes like those at the Valu Valu concert will feature in the show and she said yes though of course highly edited.
Comments from those who watched the show:
- Alex Nankunda: "i like the fact that Zari came up with a reality show but its sooo artificial...which meks it soo uncool"
- Babykigs BK: "Nt yt there.. bt her voice sounds funny."
- Nakalyowa Angella: "I've watched it, its fun."
- Isaac Lugudde: "Uganda is evolving, seriously, live reality t.v show on UBC. I love it. Great for the country!"
Zari and her now very close buddy Sylvia Owori were watching the show at Boda Boda Garden City. Meanwhile, yesterday during the press conference for the launch, Zari apologized for the cat fights and promised not to have any of that drama.

South African based Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan launched the first reality show in East Africa on Tuesday April 03, 2012 that will be airing on Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC). Zari - The Boss Lady is a fourteen week reality television show that will feature Zari's life as a mother, wife, entrepreneur, role model and an artiste.
So many women, young and old alike have written to me expressing their admiration for me as a wife, mother and so on and therefore admire the way I balance my roles in every field I'm involved in. Iam a source of inspiration, motivation and a symbol of financial independence to many. Zari said in a statement to the press.
The statement added: "Many people have a misconception of me as a socialite, spendthrift and and attention-seeking celebrity.
I have never, at any one moment, lashed out to any member of the public and never have I ever involved myself in girlish altercations that I have been dragged into time and again. My reality show will tell everyone that Iam a mature and responsible woman, as actions speak louder than words."
Zari concludes that the reality; show Zari-The Boss Lady is not a publicity stunt, neither is it a show-off strategy. That was Zari's statement as far as the reality show that starts tonight at 8:30pm and will last for 30minutes.
During the launch Zari was with the UBC Public Relations Officer Jane Kasumba and Sylvia Owori whom Zari said they've been friends since she was 17. She took a moment off to apologize to all her followers for the bad commnets she had made and promised not to utterany of those cooments again.
In a related development, the PRO of UBC encouraged all those who felt they could come up with similar shows to present them to UBC as long as they are informative, educative and entertaining.
For now we wait for the show..Watch this space!

Now this is war between top socialites Zari Hassan and the Fab Clan (Sue Ochola and JH). On Saturday at about 5:00am hell broke loose after Ivan was told that Zari was in the women washroom talking to Sue Ochola. The Fab Clan members have given their side of the story.
Apparently the gals were chatting on who should use the mirror first when Ivan stormed from nowhere into the women washroom and started beating up Zari. Ivan ordered his bouncers to drag Sue Ochola and all her friends out of the washroom and eventually Club Silk.
Sue Ochola was pushed to the floor before being dragged out by Ivan's bouncers. It's not clear where Club Silk's bouncers were while the Fab Clan members were being dragged out and worse still how a man can walk into the ladies washroom and start beating up someone even if one is a wife.
Judith Heard who is very close to Sue said that this has to stop. Why is it that every time Zari is in the country one of her friends has to be attacked. Judith Heard who says that from the time she failed to attend the Zari White Party, the two former friends have not been on good terms.
Sue and Judith maintain that Ivan thumped Zari as Sue was watching but because Sue had spotted them, they rushed to the media saying it was Sue who was thumped.
On the other hand Zari maintains the Fab Clan guys are just cooking up stories: "

Just in case you are not aware socialite Zari Hassan is around ahead of her TBL reality show launch which will start airing on UBC on Wednesday at 8pm. You all recall the beef between Zari and JH which has not yet settled down though Zari is looking at ways to make peace.
Last Saturday, Zari stormed Club Silk to party
Tuesday, 27 March 2012
In the recent past, the social scene was dominated by Bad Black and she was a threat to anyone who dared cross that line through her parties, various tips in all the shopping malls that she went to for shopping together with her gal brigade members.
All that is going down the line pretty fast as the embezzlement case takes it's toll on her. She was in court yesterday but rushed to hospital later after she blacked out in court. Her case will resume today.
On the other hand, Zari has taken center stage and in this month alone, she was able to deal with at least two ex-models Judith Heard and Priscilla Ray. It all started at the Valu Valu concert and one thing led to the other after the auction of the phone.
Zari comes out by trying to play the game smart at least a lot better than Bad Black. She holds parties yes just like Bad Black used to, but with Zari, you normally part with a small fee. Bad Black, everything was 110% on the house.
Zari's last visit a few weeks back comprised of buying a building on Kampala road, an investment she says is for the kids, but for one reason or the other, she has still kept it a secret. She was also monitoring the progress on her Sir Apollo Kagwa based Brooklyn Hotel.
At this rate, it is not clear how long she will be at the top but it took Bad Black a cool 9months of booze, sex, rides, parties but for now, it is court and battling with pregnancy.

Judith Heard Attacks Zari Hassan @ Valu Valu Show
Wednesday, 21 March 2012
If you thought the cat fight between Judith Heard and Zari had ended, then you are mistaken because now it has taken the avenue of a third party who is none other than ex-city model and glamour gal Priscilla Ray.
The ex-model who has been in the UK and her timeline now reflects UG has responded to Zari's verbal diarrhoea and this is what she had to say: "To you my buddies, sorry about my previous status, im actually so ashamed of it.
I don't beef and will not involve myself in any war of words especially with an attention seeking semi-illiterate airhead ( I refuse to give her that satisfaction). My mama would be so ashamed of me, she taught me better than that."
As all this is going on, Judith Heard simply says that I'm proud of ma sister(Ray) in every way. On the other hand Zari has got a totally different way of playing this. Close pals told Zari that they were fed up of reading about her yet there was a lot going on.
She has now resorted to telling all those who care to know about the construction of her former hostel that has now turned into a hotel. The hotel she is calling Hotel Brooklyn is located on Sir Apollo Kagwa behind Mogas petrol station.
We are pretty certain this is a better way of dealing with things than just showing a few shillings.

Former city model Priscilla Ray who has been in the UK did not receive kind words from socialite Zari when she threw a spanner into her recent rift with JudIth Heard.
This is what Ray wrote: "Each time I see a picture of someone posing with a wad of money, I have to fight the urge of running under my bed. Thats some suspect shit...totally hideous."
Ray adds: "You can tell they are not used to having it that's why they make a special effort to flaunt it and show it off.......also ever noticed that's its the "rich" and not the Wealthy that pull such stunts? lol"
This did not go down well with Zari Hassan who did not waste any minute but to attack.

South African based Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan's reality show dubbed The Boss Lady (TBL) will start showing on state owned Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) any time soon.
The reality show is expected to have scenes from her All White Parties in UK and Uganda, her life as a mother of three, introduction ceremony, Charity visits, the cars, family, thongs and shoes and of course not forgetting the cat fights.
She confirmed this to a few friends that it's officially launching on UBC and one should expect entertainment, drama, fashion and glamour. She added; "Swagga just started TBL premiering soon, YES hate is expected but there is no stopping me. Nuggu? No. Its an obsession with me, lol.."
She also knows that hate is expected. Just recently, she was at war with Judith Heard, another socialite over the auction of the Chameleone phone at the Valu Valu concert. We can't wait to see this reality show though the organisers should be mindful of the fact that the mother of the reality shows, Big Brother is around the corner and nothing comes in it's way.
Saturday, 10 March 2012
It's now official South African based Zari Hassan and Judith Heard do not see eye-to-eye and are not about to reconcile after what happened at the Valu Valu Concert. The two socialites have been having issues.
All White Party
Last year, Zari held the All White Party which Judith Heard missed claiming that the people at the party were not her type. This did not go down well with Zari who retaliated with very strong X-rated words.
Buzz Teeniez Awards
Days later, they met at the Buzz Teeniez Awards at Lugogo but the tension was too much that the two jeered at each other forcing the organizers to separate them. Judith has always referred to Zari as a bitch in fact on that day she demanded that they take her to another tent as she was not comfortable seating next to a bitch.
Valu Valu Concert
The concert was a success but for now that's all we know about the concert. It however doubled as the launch of the 'Chameleone Phone' and the MC's Salvado and Kats kicked off with the auction of the phone. Judith Heard pledged pounds 2,000 and Zari Hassan pulled out a bundle of 50k notes and demanded to know if the pledge from JH had to wait until she consults with the husband the following morning.
Judith Heard Reacts
"That's silly. I have the money. That's too silly. You silly bitch, silly! I'm here to support my friend Jose Chameleone. Silly,".
It was at this time that the police was called in to rescue the situation. A police officer and Zari's bouncer whisked her away.
Judith Heard Speaks Out
She was asked if she had a problem with Zari and she said that; "The only problem I have with her is disrespecting my family, my husband and kids." On the other hand, Zari maintains she has no problem with Judith Heard and she believes they can go past their differences.
Who is Zari?
Zari Hassan hails from Jinja and she is a cocktail of breeds with her father being half Burundian and Half Somali and the mother is a half Indian and half Mutooro and she speaks Soga fluently having grown from there.
She moved to Kampala in 1998 and later to UK(Woodgreen) where she became a Cosmetologist and later relocated to South Africa where she met Ivan Ssemwanga who she has just introduced to her parents. They have three boys after eleven years. Ehh, she is also a musician.
Who is Judith Heard?
She was born in Kigali, Rwanda tried being a waiter before crossing to a model and that is how she met her husband Dr. Alex Heard an American Psychiatrist.
They have a set of twin girls and one adopted son.
On top of Zari and Her Rides, she has added a Range Rover Sport while Judith Heard has a Bentley, Lamborghini, Mercedes Benz ML, Thunderbird...! She got an Audi Q7as a Valentine's present(Judith Heard's Valentines Present)
These two socialites are into charity. Before women's day, Zari was donating to elderly women in Kabowa(Zari Handing Over Goodies) and a few months back Judith Heard, Meddie Donate to Sanyu Babies Home

News of her exchange with Judith Heard is still fresh but that aside, Zari came in specifically to attend the Valu Valu Concert but most importantly to buy a commercial bulging in the city which snoops say is located between Santos Ice Cream and Watoto Church.
In a weeks time, the building will be having a name like 'Zari Plaza' which we will gladly show on these pages. Meanwhile, Zari has apologized to Dr. Chameleone over the mess during the Valu Valu show last Friday.
Sunday, 04 March 2012
It was the Valu Valu live show which doubled as the launch of the Chameleone Phone. The MC's of the night Salvado and MC Kats announced that the phone was up for grabs. Judith Heard got the microphone first and offered pounds 2000.
This however is believed to be an offer that was made after Judith had consulted a Nigerian Oga friend who was in attendance.
It was Zari's chance to make her offer for the Chameleone phone but before she could do that, she asked if Judith Heard was to make a cheque or pay in cash because on her part, she was ready to pay the same amount in cash.
This rubbed Judith the wrong way. She simply threw the microphone at Zari calling her a bitch. For starters, Judith Heard was a waitress, turned into a model and later a socialite. She is married to Alex Heard and they have 3 kids.
On the other hand, Zari is very well known on these pages and she needs no introduction. However, the two have always been at each other's necks with the latest being the Buzz Teeniez Awards when the two socialites were in attendance but Zari's bouncers almost took the breath out of Judith.
Two years back, Judith received a valentine's present of an Audi Q7, black in colour and within a short while, Zari added a creme AudiQ7 to her fleet.

Socialites Judith Heard and Zari Hassan are at it again. The two have been having issues in the past so Judith Heard took this opportunity to diss at Zari at the Valu Valu Live show at Kyadondo yesterday.
Looks like Judith was a bit high on whatever stuff and downloaded her wrath on Zari when she was given a chance to talk. This time round Zari has played it cool and not opted to attack as it has always been the case.

A few days back, Zuena who is battling with pregnancy cravings was forced to cut off her hair though she has been very strict with revealing her new look.
But before that dust could settle, South African based socialite Zari Hassan has hit the social scene asking her followers if she looks better off with short hair or long hair?
As it is the norm from one's followers on the social network, they flooded her account with praises of how she looked cool with short hair. She simply sat back and enjoyed the flow but one Drino Gad commented that; "hey u looked sick hpe yo fyn, bt that hair do is alright, like seriously cheers"
The message in Drino's comment was that you looked sick.. Zari was quick at responding to Gad and she had this to say; "Not sick that's a gal with less make-up and its computer camera, not the studio shots I do, that's the real me."
So folks there is the real Zari without make-up and she is wondering if she should try out the short hair or just resort to the long hair extensions!

In yesterday's Red Pepper, it was reported that there was bad blood between the 2011 Song Writer of the Year Nince Henry, Juliana and Zari. Nince Henry was to write 'Begombeko' for Zari but the song writer instead sold it to Iryn.
Responding to the article Zari instead wrote on her wall that ''

We recently told of how Zari declined the Hummer present that was given to her during her introduction ceremony at the end of last year claiming that it wasn't feminine, so what the hubby did was to add it on his fleet of vehicles with IVAN 9 customized plates.
The South African based Ugandan socialite told some of her pals that "Tekwali kwelaga but this is more feminine" implying that when she rejected the Hummer, she was not feeling sweet but the Range Rover sport is more feminine to her compared to a Hummer.
Meanwhile, when we posted the pic of the Hummer that was rejected, this was one of the comments: "Man, these are all tricks. u hear about those introductions were the woman and man's families sit together and agree on borrowing stuff to present so that the kwanjuula looks good.
I bet majority of what was presented, like the Hummer itself, the 100+ cows etc were financed for a certain period and now that the introduction was done the stuff had to go back, the Hummer being first priority. That Hummer is someone else's it was rented, they never bought it. don't fall for the tricks."
Zari has a number of rides ranging from a BMW, Merc CLK, Crysler among others and now she adds a white Range Rover Sport.

A fleet of Hummers waiting for her as she pulls out of the South African Airforce flight not forgetting her LV bag and bodyguard are some of the scenes in the video.
Meanwhile, less than two months back was her introduction ceremony and her present was a Hummer which she rejected. Now the latest info before us is that the replacement car will be available in a few hours so make sure you check back.

No doubt Bad Black is slowly getting off the social scene and on the other hand South African based socialite Zari Hassan is doing everything possible to remain in the limelight. She has now de registered the two cars that originally had South African customized plates to her name.
The Chrysler was ZARI 3 GP and now it's Zari and the CLK Benz was ZARI 4 GP and now ZARI 2. However, on the Chrysler, she went an extra mile and gave it a facelift as seen from the pic to give an impression that these are two vehicles.
Meanwhile, on her wall she is busy convincing her followers that the cows presented during the 'Kwanjula' were real and not hired and so were the cars. Info on the Hummer she was given is that it was her car in South Africa.
Zari and Ivan held their introduction on the Christmas Eve and later that evening proceeded to Serena Hotel for the engagement party and five days after, was the All White party at Guvnor with free booze to all the guests.

We told you just a few days back that Zari will be introducing Ivan to her parents before X-Mas and this is exactly what happened on Saturday as Ivan Ssemwanga together with his close friends and family made their way to Munyonyo.
Unlike other introduction ceremonies, on this one the 'Muko' got a car as opposed to hens for giving out his sister. Zari's mum got a car for having given birth to a beautiful daughter. It should also be noted that there were no baskets on this kwanjula as all items were wrapped in their original packaging materials as opposed to opening them and putting an item or two in baskets as seen elsewhere.
As for Zari, it was 300 heifer cows and a Hummer car as a token of appreciation for being a good wife and having given birth to three boys who look exactly like Ivan.

Zari and Ivan are in the country ahead of their introduction ceremony slated for December 24 and the All White Party at Guvnor/Ange Noir. Zari has not been clear on this matter but she talked to some snoops confirming that yes they will be having an introduction ceremony at her parents home in Kampala and later proceed to Serena Hotel for an after party cum engagement party.
She was yesterday at Sheraton hotel with Ivan when she asked for 12mn to go to Ange -Noir-Guvnor. The waiter who was taking orders from some babes was absent minded as all his attention had been taken up by Zari and the body guards who were all over the place.
In the end, he delivered a wrong order. He was told to take it back because they expected him to do exactly that as he was paying attention to Zari. "These are the people you see everyday so why do you get so taken up." The gals told the waiter who was by then apologizing for the wrong order.
Zari and Ivan have three kids, Pinto(8), Raphael (7) and the last born Quincy.

South African based Zari Hassan is in town ahead of the All White Party that will take place on December 29, 2011 at the Industrial area based posh hang out Guvnor. The party dubbed ''The All White Affair'' was to be held a day before but that was the same date of the Arab Money party by Sue Ochola and Judith Heard.
The two parties attract the same crowd so Zari decided to choose another date. The charge is 30,000/- per head. The Arab Money Concept came to the limelight in one of the previous goat races when Sue Ochola provided free expensive booze coupled with live entertainment in the Arab Money Tent.
Just a few days back, Judith Heard was launching her Forest Mall based JH Boutique and the super ex model did not disappoint as she graced the catwalk donning some white outfit. This prompted some followers to conclude that since she won't be part of the All White Party, then this is her version as far as 'all white' was concerned.

Three Parties, One Night - Which one are you attending?
Wednesday, 23 November 2011
South African based Zari Hassan is back to South Africa after spending four days in Uganda. Originally her plan was to spend three days but because of the arrest, she stayed for an extra day.
Zari who stormed out of Club Rouge the moment Bad Black and her gals brigade stormed the celebrity hangout was held at Kabalagala Police briefly for holding an illegal assembly. Apparently, Zari was conducting interviews for Engineering Lecturers.
Zari added that such skills are scarce in South Africa prompting her to outsource from other countries, Uganda inclusive.
This is what she wrote on her wall regarding the matter: "

During this time of the year, parties to mark the year end are held and Kampala is yet to be faced with that night that will go down in history when three socialites lock horns in hosting parties on the same night.
Zari will be holding the All White Party at Guvnor on the 28.Dec.2011 which is the same day that Judith Heard together with her Arab money friend Sue Ochola have planned to host their guests at Golf Course Hotel.
Un confirmed reports indicate that Bad Black will be holding one on that day but of course this is subject to how the court battle with her mzungu unfolds. Kampala partiers just have to don their outfits as usual to celebrate new years end three days before.
There has been a tendency of these three outsmarting each other when it comes to matters of spending. Bad Black attended the last party that Zari organized together with Elyt Magazine at Garden City Rooftop but Judith Heard and Zari being at the same is next to impossible and if they do, then won't see eye to eye.
Monday, 07 November 2011
Come December 28, 2011 It will be another party with champagne flowing at the posh Ange-Noir Guvnor during the Zari cum Elyt affair and the dress code will be all white. The party will kick off at 9:00pm and the damage to your pockets will be 30k.
The last time this kind of party was held was in April and it was indeed a success with all partiers donning white outfits. In the month of July, Zari came up with the Mid-Year Fiesta and now she bounces back with another All White Party.
The South African based socialite is also in advanced stages of shooting a reality show that will be airing on one of the local TV stations. Bad Black's wallet had humbled the likes of Judith Heard and Zarie with the way she was putting up parties like the Black Gal Party, with no entry fees and booze was flowing on the house before she was remanded to Luzira for allegedly embezzling US$ 4m that belonged to a real estate company.

Zari's customised black Chrysler was impounded a month back at Busia border for over staying. Officers at the Revenue Authority customs department are demanding that she pays her dues within two weeks or they will take other measures in recovering their dues.
Zari actually confirmed this on her wall that; "One of ma monster black baby was pounded(meant impounded) at Busia as it made it's way back home (S.Africa), lol ma bad. Surely it overstayed. Wanted to bring it back and import some bigger, bigger wheels.
But anyway, we are all not above the law. so I've got to pay ma dues". The South African based Zari has also intimated on his wall that she is shooting her reality series that will be screened on one of the local TV stations though she could not give more details at this time.
You can watch that space for Zari's rides, her children in the football academy, LV shopping and one of the scenes when she tries to shoot a video and may be swimming in her pool at home are some the scenes that you should expect in the reality series being shot by Zari.

It is now clear and confirmed that Bad Black's party has had an impact on whatever party that South African based artiste Zarie is planning to hold on July 29. In the posters that were first released, the date was July 22 and within no time, the date changed to July 29.
Interestingly on the posters there was no mention of how much one was required to part with but there was a statement that 30% of the proceeds would go to charity. She later announced that the charge was $100 or Ugx 250,000/- per person and there were only 100 seats available.
Her fellow investors or advisers were quick to tell her that the economy is biting that even when you reduce the number of guests to 50, you might not raise half that number so as we speak, the theme of the party has long changed from 'Bow Ties and Tiaras' to 'Mid-Year Fiesta', on the same date but different location and at a fairly affordable price of 30,000/-
Some party animals have even come out giving credit to Bad Black like this one; "Black throws her bash to have fun and celebrate her B.D & not like local nothing doers like Zari who just want to show off. Black's party was free and yet a number of talented artistes performed but Zari's parties are for alcohol only and her boring music "

Hardly days after the Black Gal Party dust settles down South African based Ugandan artiste Zarie Hassan in conjuction with Elyt Magazine has bounced back with a 'Bow Tie and Tiara Dinner' that will be held at Serena Hotel Kampala - Pearl of Africa restaurant on the 29-July-2011.
The gents will be clad in bow ties while the ladies will be dressed in Tiaras or else you will be bounced. 30% of the proceeds will go to charity. The last time Zari was behind a similar happening was during the All White Party at Guvnor.
Bad Black worked very hard to out smart Zari's All White party but a power surge let her down for close to three hours. Some patrons hanged on as the engineers restored the problem but others simply retired to bed.
At this rate Zarie is just not about to see anyone making headlines when it comes to the parties. She is into music and a school in South Africa whereas Bad Black is loaded but it is not very clear what she does for a living.

Thursday, 07 July 2011
The Birthday gal who was to celebrate her day on turning 22 years which many of her followers are disputing was very disappointed when a power surge blew up all the equipment and lighting at Club Rouge bringing to an end the party which was going to leave a legacy in all the celeb parties that had been held around Kampala.
At the time of the black out, Bad Black had not yet arrived at the venue, we are yet to establish what exactly happened to her on learning that after injecting close to 70mn in the bash, the party ended before it could start.
Black hired a black limousine just like Zarie did during her All White Party to clearly make a statement to her that she rules when it comes to the money game.

Its amazing how days move so fast but we have another 365 days behind us and below we take you through the popular stories of 2010.
Desire Given a Run for Her Money
- It all started when Desire went to the UK for her birthday party a few months back and being a celeb she is, fans were posing with her for photo shoots and one of them happened to be Julie Kaka. Julie was doing very well as that black outfit did some justice to her. She however looks different while donning white fitting clothes.
Desire Vs Zari
- Now this one is about Desire but this time being compared with Zari as it turned out the two loved posing for the camera but as the comparison went on, it touched on their music, dressing, and to some extent their private lives but it was the most popular before the Julie/Desire bit over took.
Big Momma Treat at PAM Awards
- This actually happened on Nov 6 during the PAM Awards where Straka was one of the MCs during the award giving ceremony. She had her theme which was the 'Girl Child' and she kept on running a good campaign about the girl child on matters to do with defilement, educate the girls as opposed to keeping them in the kitchen and so forth which was very okay per say. She however killed it when she tried to dress like a school girl fat as she is, tried to dance around and in the process revealing what was better off leaving back stage. This made her win various awards for clown of the year.
Bebe and Zuena at Kadic Hospital
- This shocked very many. Bebe and the wife got an accident after performing up country on their way back, the Honda RVR they were travelling in got a tyre burst. Zuena sustained serious injuries as Bebe was admitted with minor injuries.
Boys Earning from the Mic
- That was as simple as the statement went but it looked like some of our readers were trying to suggest that DJ Michael was not earning from the mic after being lined up with the likes of Moze, Weasel, Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine and Dr. Chameleone.
Uganda's Davis Ntare Wins Tusker Project Fame 4
- Back in Kenya it was Tusker Project Fame 4 in which Juliana Kanyomozi was one of the judges, Rachel Namubiru made it to the top and Davis Ntare who tried the TPF3 version and failed emerged the winner of Tusker Project Fame 4.
Kampala City Hit by 3 Bomb Blasts
- Now this was a sad affair that left over 70 dead after the Al-shabab hit Kyadondo Rugby Club and another bar making life very difficult for parties around the city and also affecting artistes equally as trends changed there after though it has now started to pick more so with the beefed up security.
Nigeria's Uti Wins Big Brother Africa All Stars
- It was yet another Big Brother though this one had no shower hour but featured previous film stars er.. big brother stars like Tatiana, Meryl, Munya but Tawana and Ofunekka were not among the stars in the All Stars version. Uganda was represented by Hannington Kutesa who lost his cool after South Africa's Lerato played games with him only to be disqualified 3 days later. At the end of the game, Nigeria's Uti who even lost his father while in the Big Brother House emerged the winner taking the USD 200,000 prize.
Bebe Cool Shot in the Nakumatt Sex Scuffle
- Most of our artistes will produce very good music once provoked and if only they can borrow a leaf from the likes of R.Kelly who had just performed in Uganda a night before Bebe was shot, then our music could be at even a better level. After the R.Kelly show, Bebe retired at Effendy's but met some guys he terms as bad company so he excused himself and was moving towards Nakumatt. He met a couple in some old car and tried to intervene, the next minute he was crying for his dear life.
You Want Another Rap
- Very interesting indeed because You want another Rap is a title which in most cases comes before you've listened to a rap but in this case you are bing asked You want another Rap leaving you with no choice but to say Ye Ssebo followed in that order but bearing in mind that it also came in the last quarter of the year, it was by all standards popular.
