Single mother and businesswoman Zari Hassan has revealed that raising kids on her own is not easy.
The mother of five, whose ex-husband Ivan Semwanga died and left her with three children, and has two more from estranged husband Diamond Platnumz, has been raising all of them single-handedly. Via her Snapchat she wrote;
Thank you God for my children. It’s tough raising them alone but then again you arealwayss there. #Grateful and blessed.
On Valentine day, Zari parted ways with Diamond Platnumz citing infidelity as the main cause of their break up.
UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO DO.
THERE HAVE BEEN MULTIPLE RUMORS SOME WITH EVIDENCE FLOATING AROUND IN ALL SORTS OF MEDIA IN REGARDS TO DIAMOND’S CONSTANT CHEATING AND SADLY I HAVE DECIDED TO END MY RELATIONSHIP WITH DIAMOND, AS MY RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DIGNITY & WELL BEING CANNOT BE COMPROMISED. WE ARE SEPARATING AS PARTNERS BUT NOT AS PARENTS.
THIS DOESN’T REDUCE ME AS A SELF-MADE INDIVIDUAL, AND AS A CARING MOTHER, AND THE BOSS LADY YOU HAVE ALL COME TO KNOW.
I WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD AS A MOGUL, I WILL INSPIRE THE WORLD OF WOMEN TO BECOME BOSS LADIES TOO.
I WILL TEACH MY FOUR SONS TO ALWAYS RESPECT WOMEN, AND TEACH MY DAUGHTER WHAT SELF-RESPECT MEANS.
UNLIKE MANY, I’VE BEEN IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY FOR 12 YEARS, AND THROUGH ALL MY CHALLENGES I CAME OUT A VICTOR BECAUSE I AM A WINNER, AND SO ARE ALL OF YOU ZARI SUPPORTERS.
In an interview with BBC after the break-up, Zari revealed that she will raise her kids alone in case the singer didn’t want to. She said;
IF HE WANTS TO SUPPORT HIS CHILDREN HE CAN DO THAT BUT IF HE DOESN’T WANT TO ITS STILL OKAY. I CAN MANAGE ON MY OWN.
But it seems Zari is not strong enough to juggle between business and taking care of her kids. Just recently she revealed that her children neded a father figure but Diamond Platnumz is not there for them. Her brother (her kid’s uncle) has since taken up the role of the father.
