Zari Hassan has been making headlines for her relationship with Shakib Cham thanks to the age difference.

Cham 31,  started dating Zari 42, late this year and fans have not stopped talking about them. 

Shakib Cham's sister has now revealed to Ugandan media pundits that her brother's relationship with Zari has been blessed and given a go-ahead by their family.

“We accepted her as our own and we don’t have a problem with the relationship. I am here with the two because love is about the heart, not the people. It’s a big moment for us as a family,” she told the media.

The sister went on to talk about how unfair the society is when a woman dates a younger man.

“When a man of sixty years old hooks up a teenager, critics keep quiet but you are shouting because Shakib hooked up someone whose somehow older than him? The bad thing is Ugandans have a lot of maalo (urban excitement),” she said.

Zari has in the past blasted trolls who keep talking about her age gap with her man.

"Let me see, you are probably miserable, probably single and miserable, you are probably dating somebody else's man.

You can't touch this man in the club, or you are just sitting with a blesser in the club, who is just, you know, doing all the sponsoring. Excuse me but, that's my man, okay! "
