Zari: I want to be a billionaire and I can’t do that as a musician

Socialite Zari Hassan is rich but that’s not enough. No yet. She wants to be richer.

Speaking in an interview with Tanzanian media, Zari shared that she wants to grow her wealth and she plans to do so through her empire and not music.

“I can’t do that as a musician because it takes a lot of time before you can actually earn from music,” Zari said in an interview. 


The mother of five said that music takes time to make money in Africa therefore doesn’t impress her anymore.

“Unlike Americans, in Africa, it is not easy to become famous within a short time. So I better focus on my businesses. I have kids and music will require so much of my time because I have to be on tour all through.” she said. 

Zari has different songs that have all turned out to be flops. She said that she no longer sings or dance in music videos any more.

“I think the person needs to pay me so much to appear on their song,” she said. 

“I have had a few offers from Nigerians, but some of the offers I declined because the money was too little for me to leave my work and family to go for that,” Zari said.
