The drama in Diamond Platnumz’s larger family is not about to end after his London based half-sister jetted into Tanzania seeking answers from the singer.

According to Global Publishers, Zubeda Juma wants an audience with Diamond as to why he has neglected their ailing father, Nasib Abdul Juma.

Naishi London, nimekuja Tanzania kwa ajili ya baba, Mzee Abdul. Actually, nimekua na baba kama kipindi cha miezi sita. Nimesikiliza, nimeangalia YouTube kama ni kweli au si kweli kwamba you are not willing kuongea na Mzee Abdul. Why are you hesitant to come to see your dad? That is what I want to know, why? What has he done really?” Said Zubeda.

Zubeda added that she disappointed that her brother has refused to check on their father whom she says is languishing away with a swollen foot.

“Please, I could say beg of you, because I have never been near you, please if possible to see each other, to sit down, to talk and see if we can sort out this problem between you and your dad. He is very ill, actually, I have got pictures of your daddy’s legs,” she added.

She disclosed that Abdul Juma always cries when they speak due to the pain. Zubeda noted that she will be even happier if he and Mama Sandra (Diamond’s mother) were to see her.

Zubeda and the Jibebe hitmaker were born to different mothers, “Nitafuarhi kama tutaongea kuhusu kuumwa kwa mzee. No matter what it takes, but tuongee."

Diamond's tumultuous relationship with his father is well documented.

He, in the past, said that his father neglected him when he was young and that he is not close to him as he is with his mother.

“Babangu tunawasiliana naye…Upande wa kumsaidia namsaidia ikiwa sina uwezo pia sina uwezo. Lakini bahati mbaya hatuna ukaribu kama nilivyo na mamangu, Kuishi pamoja, Kusafiri pamoja. Hatujazoena hivyo, kwa pengine watu kuniona siko na yeye katika hadara wanaona kama Diamond ana vita na babake.

"Kuna baadhi ya watu wengine wamekuwan na mazoea mabya ya kwenda na Babangu getini Kwangu na kumpigisha pisha kisha waseme nimemfungia geti, sio fresh aisee. Sio kila mtoto ambaye haishi ma wazazi wake mambo yao sio fresh,” said Diamond.

As close as a month ago, Abdul was crying out that he has been sidelined by his famous son and for starters pleaded to be invited to his planned wedding.

Diamond is set to marry Tannasha Donna.
