Immediately after leaving her ex-husband the late Ivan Ssemwanga, Zari Hassan dipped herself into another relationship. One that would mess her reputation. This was before she met her current man Diamond Platnumz.
For the first time ever, Zari has spoken about the leaked sex tape. She says she was in a long-distance relationship with a man that had recorded their most intimate moments.
She told Uganda’s Sanyu FM:
‘I’m not ashamed of my past, you don’t plan a sex video to come out. The time I left Ivan I was dating a person and because it was a long distance relationship thing, we would get on the phone and do whatever we have to do, we were adults and we had our intimate moments.”
When she broke up with the guy, who was living abroad at the time, he threatened to leak the video if he wasn’t paid.
“It came to a point where this person had recorded a session. It came to a point where I decided to leave the relationship and he blackmailed me that I should pay him.”
“I said its fine, you wanna release this video? Its fine. You cannot blackmail me for having a relationship with you. You wanna blackmail me by releasing my sex video that you recorded? Its fine go ahead and he did. Its in the past”
