Former alcohol and drug addict, Zziwa, shares his story
Hair stylist, Kennedy Zziwa, of Hair by Zziwa studio has been battling with drug and alcohol addiction up to a time he decided to go to Butabika Hospital, which has a section that deals with addiction, it's now two months and Ken has not touched any of those substances, it was great news that he had to share considering what he had gone through, the money he had spent let alone property that was destroyed as a result of the vice.
While appearing on NTV Mwasuze Mutya program, Zziwa told of how he beat up one of his brothers right before his clients. He also recalled a moment when he was driving and the lady ahead of him was moving at a relatively slow pace, he hit her bumper and as the scuffle ensued, it turned out this was a Magistrate, but she later forgave him after realizing all was not well.
Zziwa was and is still best friends with Desire Luzinda who for the record, turned 25 yesterday. This closeness to the Kitone star coupled with the alcohol and drug mix could not leave his wife riding on the same horse with him, she ended up packing because at the time, Desire's pics were acting as screen savers on many people's phones.
Zziwa was the type that had gone way past beers because they could not work on him, he could take a minimum of three whiskey bottles in a day and when he felt thirsty, a beer could do and in his hair salon, he always hugged and kissed his female clients even before their spouses.
Originally, Ziwa was in China and the reason he quit to come to Kampala was none other than drugs. It was at this point that the moderator asked him why he was taking in so much?
The hair salon is so demanding with new trends coming up every other minute, so you have to be alert all the time to keep abreast with the trends, Zziwa responded.
He is always checking on his social networks to find out if he did not post anything controversial, so when it turned out that he is going to rehab, 'Travelling..was the post he made, but with no location leaving his followers guessing what the destination was, but only him knew that his final destination was Butabika Hospital.
On getting there, even the receptionist knew him, Zziwa wanted to take off because he wanted to be in a place where nobody could recognize him. He tried googling for rehab centers in Nairobi, but was advised Butabika Hospital was actually a good place for such therapy.
After two months, Zziwa came back a totally changed man. He used to spend close to 60million on drugs alone, but that counts as savings now. He works from Sunday to Sunday and his clients actually say, he looks fresh. The hugs and kisses to his clients have since reduced now that it was a different force behind such acts, You can also pick a leaf from Zziwa.
Their daughter turned 7, a few days back.

Not long back, when Zari was explaining how she hit the rocks with King Bae, who turned out to be romance scammer, she said that it is not about money when it comes to dating her, so even the not so loaded guys were welcome to give it a try, but looking at her new lover, GK Choppa, he seems to be wearing two faces, in him you see a combination of her late hubby and Diamond Platnumz.
