Somalian born-New Yorker, model and businesswoman Ubah Hassan is known for her work with some of fashion’s biggest designers and, more recently, her role on the “Real Housewives of New York” (RHONY). Ralph Lauren, Gucci and Oscar de la Renta are amongst the brands that she’s modeled for and now, as the face of her own brand, she’s elevating meals with hot sauce. 

“Ubah Hot” is the name of Hassan’s hot sauce company offering three different blends that showcase African flavors for anyone who loves a kick or wants to spice up a healthy meal. And that spice carries over into all departments of her life! In the looks that she’s served on RHONY, glitz and glam have been front and center. Although, when it comes to her dating life, she’s kept the details under wraps…until now. Who is Ubah dating?

Who Is Ubah Hassan?

Ubah Hassan is a force on her own. Born in Somalia, her family moved to Canada where she was discovered by a modeling agent in a park. She went on to become the face of several brands, and was the subject of a documentary titled “Ubah!” before landing on RHONY in their fourteenth season and launching her hot sauce enterprise in 2021. When she isn’t juggling reality tv show appearances and running a business, she’s deeply involved in philanthropy. Ubah launched her own company, Maji Umbrellas, through which she sold umbrellas to improve water quality for East Africa and works closely with Toms as well as All Hands and Hearts. As her commitment to these causes continues, so does her management of the entrepreneurial and personal departments of her life journey.

We know just about everything (that she wants us to know) about the model-media personality-mogul. So, when she revealed the identity of her beau while on RHONY, we had to do some digging. 

Who Is Ubah Hassan Dating?

Who Is Ubah Hassan dating, making time for, smiling from ear to ear and interlocking fingers with? That would be German-born, Connecticut resident Oliver Dachsel. The couple met through mutual friends although they both share invokement with a particular non-profit organization. Oliver has been a board member of All Hands and Hearts since 2020 and was appointed Senior Vice President, Capital Markets at Aris Mining in April 2024. He is also the managing director of Jeffries, a major financial institution in New York. With close to 20 years of experience in investment banking, he’s secured over $40 billion in mergers, acquisitions and market transactions. Ubah previously expressed that it was the nature of Oliver’s work that led the couple to keep things private at the start.

While Ubah opted to keep him a secret for some time, the couple made their official debut on the red carpet at the 2023 American Ballet Theatre Fall Gala. It’s been reported that the RHONY cast approve of her selection and the couple’s budding relationship.

Ubah Hassan, RHONY, “Ubah Hot” and Her Other Ventures 

Before she made her debut with the German investment banker with whom it’s reported that she’s very much in love, Ubah was linked to Jason Flom of Lava Records. Though discrete in her romantic conquests, she is known for her reality TV one-liners and, when she isn’t dishing and serving commentary and feedback, Ubah is doing whatever it takes to ensure that her hot sauce brand is successful. During the pandemic, she went so far as to make the concoction herself, printing and placing labels before they were shipped off to customers. Her work ethic and love for connection comes from her mother who managed a corn farm in Ubah’s youth.

Family is everything to the media personality who also shared that she’s related to fellow model Chanel Ayan, who is one of the stars of “The Real Housewives of Dubai.” With a growing net worth of $2 million, we look forward to seeing what she does next!
