Esma Platnumz with Diamond and Tanasha and Sandra

Diamond Platnumz has probably the most famous mother in East and Central Africa. Sandra Kassim has earned herself a lot of fans and followers since her son became the most popular artiste in East and Central Africa.

I believe she deserves every cent of the praise in molding her son into the star he has become. Despite that, I feel her overbearing presence in his day to day life has been a detriment to his numerous relationships with women. But that is a story for another day.

This week Mama Dangote who is most oftentimes in the news for her relationship with her much younger lover came under scrutiny for some comments that she made regarding her grandson’s appearance.

Sandra called Naseeb Junior, Kichwa Kikubwa after her daughter Esma Platnumz had shared his photo with a caption saying that she missed him.

“I miss you Tom Kaka 😘😍,” wrote Esma, to which Mama Dangote responded with the words, “KICHWA KIKUBWA.”

Her statement was taken as an insult by some of her fans who tried raking over the coals over it. They felt that she had made the comment because she had differences with the boy’s mother, Tanasha Donna.

“@mama_dangote Jamani mbona umtusi kichwa kubwa ata kama umekosa na mamake💔💔😭😭Dunia Ina maneno dah ata kama nikumfurahisha Zari hii sio vizuri😢Mungu amlinde huyu Malaika jamani,” said a fan called Khaltuma.

Mama Diamond was quick to clarify what her comment meant explaining that it wasn’t an insult but a term of endearment for her grandson and that she used to call his father the same when he was a kid.

“@khaltuma12 jamani mbona mnaumia kumwita kichwa kikubwa ndio tushazowea kumwita hivyo toka udogo wake ndio maana tuna mwita Tom kaka mdogo kwa sababu ya baba yake pia alivyokuwa mdogo tulikuwa tuna mwita hivyo ndio nayy nimezowe kumwita kichwa kikubwa,” she responded.

Although Tanasha has blamed Sandra for some of the issues she had in her relationship with Diamond, I believe Mama Diamond’s statement was true. She loves Naseeb Junior despite the differences (if any) she might have with its mother.
