Zari’s life did not begin at the top. Just like most celebrities the mother of 5 struggled and went through some hard challenges before she and Ivan started making for themselves.

As seen on one of her posts shared on her Instagram page, Zari narrates how she was forced to work two jobs in order to cover her accommodations bills and food.

For the very first time, Zari reveals that she was forced to work as a house help and a cashier – and throughout this whole time things were not so okay.

Aunt mistreats Zari

In her post she adds that living with her aunt at that time was not so easy as she treated her like a step child since Zari had come from a humble family – and the person she was married to also happened to be a hustler.

But remembering that her mother back in Uganda was doing a tailoring job and barely made enough money to survive on – she had no option but to put up with everything that was thrown her way until she graduated.

Life can be a rollercoaster and you will never know where you’ll end up.
From studying my cosmetology course in th UK ( which hasnt helped me) while doing house girl work to pay my accommodation (yes ive been a maid before)to running through buses to get to my next stop woodgreen where i worked as a cashier and sometimes as an isle packer in sainsbury. Friend, i started out early wasnt even sure why me. But the inner voice in me wanted better. My dad had left, my mom was doing tailor jobs day and night i couldnt stand seeing her struggle. I couldn’t stand her pain. I was living with my aunt in the uk who treated me like a step child. Gooosh????
Been through boutiques, long economy flights to china in between building a school and having babies. My music and tv career is a story for another day. Phew????
All I’m saying, consistency is key. Doesnt matter where you are or what you do. Just do it.
