South Africa based Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan has hinted at an All White wedding before the end of this year with her husband Shakib Lutaaya.
Given their Nikah in April that was a very private ceremony, she said they will likely have a public ceremony. “Good willing at some time, maybe at the end of this year, then we can have our white wedding,” she told Tanzanian press recently.
Shortly after her nikah ceremony, she ranted on social media after her critics suggested she hastily got married out of pressure – because Kenyan singer and socialite Akothee also got married to Denis Shweizer.
She wrote: “Everything is in place. It’s not because of pressure. Just because someone else got married in another East Africa country no more people are going to get married.”
Her first chance at an All White wedding faltered after her high-profile introduction ceremony in Munyonyo in 2011 when she introduced the late Ivan Ssemwanga to her family. They separated years later following accusations of domestic violence on the man’s part. He passed on in 2017.
