“They had screened about 5 people for the deal but they were looking for qualities of someone who could actually promote the product and I just happened to be a mother, the caring mother. You know how you put yourself out there serves a big role so I think for me the people (Softcare) decided that Zari would be the best for this role.” She said on Classic 105.

As for the criticism Zari said “There was a lot of hullaballoo about it. People were like why is someone else from another country getting this deal but look I’m just being Zari and these things are gonna find me.”
