For many years, Diamond Platnumz has been compared to Biblical character Abraham. The reason is simple; The man has kids from different baby mamas whose nationalities are spread evenly across East Africa. Just like Abraham.
But it seems that his ties with the legendary Father of the Jews doesn’t end there. For those of you who are unaware, Abraham was originally from Ur in Mesopotamia which would be present-day Iraq before God told him to move to Canaan which would become present-day Israel according to biblical records.
Apparently Diamond himself is also a man of international blood! The Tanzania singer recently revealed that he was of Ugandan origin.
The singer confirmed this in a new post where he shared a video of some Ugandan kids dancing to his latest hit!
In the caption, Diamond Platnumz went on to reveal that his dad is actually a Ugandan who found his way to Tanzania. How is that possible? The “Baba Lao” singer we are just finding about it now?
Sometimes it is good for a star to keep some things for himself methinks. The singer’s pride didn’t end there as he also mentioned how his two children with Ugandan socialite, Zari Hassan were also of Ugandan origin.” 🇺🇬UGANDA 🇺🇬 You know my dad is from there and my two kids are from there right….?”
While the singer might sound proud about the fact that he has some Ugandan heritage, his relationship with his father is another topic.
He and his mother have in the past explained that Mzee Abdul left them in poverty while he moved on with another woman. Although things are better now between father and son, one wonders what could have been had the singer had a more stable upbringing?
Would he be the philanderer he is now? Would he be the big star he is now? One can only wonder?
