Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan has joined several Ugandan celebrities in mourning her ex-husband who passed on earlier in the morning.

Ivan had been receiving treatment at the Steve Biko hospital in South Africa where he passed on in the wee hours of Thursday

“God loves those that are special and that’s exactly who you were & I guess that’s why he wanted you to himself. You have touched and helped thousands, you did wonders and I remember you telling me “life is too short Zee let me live it to the fullest”, this very dark hour it makes sense why you always said those words to me. To your sons, you were a hero-some kind of superman. Anyone who has ever been in your presence knows what a charming person you were. You will be missed and remembered in so many ways. You were IVAN THE GREAT!” Zari wrote on her social media pages.

Zari dismisses reports that her husband passed on

Other celebrities who have condoled with Zari include bebe Cool

“My deepest condolences to you and you family. May Allah see u through this moment.
RIP brother IVAN.” Wrote bebe cool.

While BET winner Eddy Kenzo eulogized Ivan as a pillar in the society.
