A few weeks ago, Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz posted a screenshot of a face time video session he had had with his children; Latiffah and Nillan.
Excited by the pictures, netizens rushed to congratulate the singer commending him for reaching out to his children after a long time of being away from them.
Who is telling the truth?
In a twist of events Zari Hassan, the mother of Diamond's two children, has come out to ascertain that the singer did not at any point visit or contact the children to know how they are doing or even talk to them.
Speaking during an interview with Millard Ayo, the mother of five was taken aback by the singers ‘lies’ and clarified they have not been in contact for the last nine months.
“I haven’t talked to Naseeb in nine months. He hasn’t seen nor spoken to his kids in nine months so for him to come out to say he recently reached out to them is a lie.
“I know it’s been a while since we broke up so I need to say this for clarity. This is where the confusion is,” she said.
The fairy-tale love story of the former Tanzanian showbiz couple came to an end about a year ago when Zari publicly called it quits.
This was after numerous accusations of cheating and consequently fathering a child with Tanzanian socialite Hamisa Mobetto.
Why I cheated
After their second child Diamond explains that he urged Zari to move with him to Tanzania since he felt the distance would be too much but she preferred to stay in South Africa where she currently resides.
“I felt it was going to be a task and the reason is that I’m still young and I’m a star. Women are always drooling over me. Imagine I leave the office, I go home and I don’t get my lover, she is South Africa. I will endure one or two weeks and then give up,” the singer admitted.
Diamond says he was ready to support Zari in whatever she wanted to do be it business, as long as she was by his side. Zari however still was not for the idea and both went for months without seeing each other.
“It was after this period I can say that the devil took over me and I started my stupidity. I’m human I couldn’t prevent it,” he continued.
Diamond almost immediately moved on with his Kenyan girlfriend Tanasha Donna and expecting their first child together.
Zari recently found her prince charming whom she refers to as 'King Bae' and is set to wed soon.
