Tanzanian star musician, Diamond Platnumz has been dumped by his fiancée and mother to his two children, Zari Hassan.
In an Instagram post on Valentine's Day, Zari, a Ugandan socialite, said she arrived at the decision to break up with Diamond after a keen scrutiny of his behavior. She says: “he cheats on me a lot”.
She wrote: “Understand that this is very difficult for me to do. There have been multiple rumours; some with evidence floating around in all sorts of media in regards to Diamond’s constant cheating; and sadly I have decided to end my relationship with Diamond, as my respect, integrity, dignity and well-being cannot be compromised.”
Zari, however, promised to work with the Bongo superstar to raise their kids, Prince Nillan and Latiffah Dangote.
“We are separating as partners, but not as parents. This doesn’t reduce me as a self-made individual, and as a caring mother, and the boss lady you have all come to know,” she said.
She continued :“I will continue to build as a mogul, I will inspire the world of women to become boss ladies too. I will teach my four sons to always respect women, and teach my daughter what self-respect means."
“Unlike many, I’ve been in the entertainment industry for 12 years, and through all my challenges I came out a victor because I am a winner, and so are all of you Zari supporters,” she concluded.
The two started dating in 2014 after the Sikomi hit-maker separated with Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu over claims that Wema couldn’t bear him children.
In a recent interview, Diamond said he loves Zari because “of all the women she dated, only Zari agreed to give him children”.
Zari is the ex-wife of the late Ugandan tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga, who passed away in May, 2017 after suffering a stroke. Zari met Diamond after she broke up with Ivan over claims of physical abuse.
