Zari and Ssemwanga during the good olden days.

Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan has spent most of this week a distraught lady following the deteriorating health of her ex-husband, Ivan Ssemwanga.

Ssemwanga was this week admitted in Steve Biko hospital, Pretoria while in critical condition. He had got a heart attack that left him in a coma and has remained in the same state for most of this week.

To the surprise of many, one of the people who has been there for Ivan during this difficult time is his ex, Zari.


Zari currently married to Tanzanian Popstar Diamond Platnumz spent most of yesterday praying for Ivan while preparing for his operation.

“God will see us through. Get well soon @ivandon…” she shared on social media attracting sympathies from fans.

Hadijjah Nakalema: We are praying for him,last saw you guys together one time at Garden city on Xmas, anyways……….

Rumanah Mohamed: You have a big heart, God will see him through, Amin.

Curtis Cleveland: He will be fine by God’s grace.

Indeed God heard their prayers as Ivan successfully went through the operation. His life is now out of danger. Though married to Diamond Platnumz whom she has two kids with, Zari’s first three kids, all sons were with Ivan. The couple broke up in 2014 and Zari shortly hooked up Diamond. However, Ivan has never replaced Zari. He lives a single life with his kids.
