South African based Ugandan socialite and business woman Zari Hassan has spoken on dating younger men.

The mother of five took to her SnapChat to talk about the sensitive issue that has had people come with divided opinions in most times.

Zari in her post said that the society is so quick to judge older women who get into relationships with younger men, but at the same time see no problem when it is an older man in a relationship with a woman who is way younger than them.

“Sitting here and thinking. Society is so quick to judge an older woman dating a younger guy, but not a 40+ guy dating a 19yr old. So typical! Watu na vibabu vyenu.” Wrote Zari on her Snapchat.

Zari Hassan’s words come in the wake of an online debate that has seen a section of Diamond Platnumz’s fans claim that she is old and that the Salome hit maker should go for a younger woman after they broke up.


Zari who is 37 years old was in a relationship with Tanzanian music sensation and WCB boss Diamond Platnumz who is 28 years old, and were blessed with 2 children, Tiffah and Nillan.

She later on called off the relationship after reports indicated that her young baby daddy was cheating on her with other women.
