Hassan, who also goes by Zari, said she was born in Walukuba and raised in Jinja.

In the video shared on TikTok, Zari appears to claim that being born in Walukuba doesn't make her a Musoga, yet that place is found in Jinja Municipality.

"People are like, how do you then connect to Basoga?" said Zari.

"I grew up in a town called Jinja. But before Jinja, I was born in a town called Walukuba.

"Few people would know... Ugandans would know where Walukuba is.

"I was born in Walikuba, we moved to Jinja, so Jinja being the town of Basogas... Everybody is branded a Musoga.

"So, that's how people think I'm a Musoga, but no, we just grew up in Busoga. Makes sense!"

The commenters weren't having any of it.

"🥰🥰🥰 confuse dem but walukuba is part of Jinja," reads a comment.
