In the same interview, Zari revealed that her parents separated while she was still young, and her mother raised her and her siblings all by herself.
She further explained the struggles her mother went through after her father left.
“My mom was a hustler, she raised all of us single-handedly. I remember her being overloaded with orders for curtains for almost all the hotels in Jinja. At the time, she was the best dressmaker in town” said Zari.
Zari said that her mother worked day and night to provide for them, and she always encouraged them to work hard and be consistent. She added that she had never witnessed such kind of effort from anyone before.
“She barely slept, saying she needed the money to feed and school us. I never saw that kind of hustle from a single mum at that time. I learnt so much from her. She will forever be my MVP.” Zari added.
Zari also opened up about the loss of her mother after she succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 2017. She said that the Doctors discovered the disease late, and there was little they could do to help.
“It was caught in its very late stages and there was nothing we could do to save her"
Zari also revealed that her mother shaped her into the resilient and hard-working woman she is today.
"We were so close, we talked about almost everything, and she taught me how to cook. I think my mom moulded me into the woman I am today, she taught me to stand strong in what you believe in, and to love yourself most of all.” Said Zari about her mother.
