Asked why they kept their relationship private at the beginning, the mother of five shares, "There would have been a lot of judgement and criticism. I was older than him by 8 years, I had kids and he was an upcoming artiste. The heart wants what it wants.
Zari continued, "I could have dated anyone but our two souls just met. I am such a girly girl. It does not matter how successful one is, we all need someone to call us and ask if we have eaten."
Zari had at the time come out of an abusive marriage to the late Ivan Ssemwanga.
She went on to date Diamond for several years and were blessed with two kids namely Tiffah and Nylan.
