Ugandan-native Zarinah Hassan is currently in her home country to mourn her ex-husband and baby daddy Ivan Semwanga, who was laid to rest on Tuesday, May 30.
Ivan ‘Don’ Semwanga passed away spending 11 days in a coma following a heart attack. He was pronounced dead on Thursday, May 25, leaving behind three sons.
Zari has been by Ivan’s side since he was admitted to Steve Biko Hospital in Pretoria, South Africa, to the minute he breathed his last. She traveled to Uganda with her kids and other relatives, and Rich Gang members.

During a recent vigil, Zari revealed that she will now assume sole responsibility for her kids because her mother taught her how to be strong as she too brought them up as a single mother. Zari moved many to tears when she added that she loved Ivan even though they had parted ways.
But what has caught people’s attention is the absence of Zari’s now boyfriend, Diamond Platnumz who she started dating about 2 years ago. When the Bongo star was in Kenya, he revealed that he would attend Ivan’s funeral.
A few days before that, he had posted a warm message for Zari, showing his loving support to the mother of his two children, Tiffah and Prince Nilan.
“It’s been a tough week for our family and especially Zari but then I thought it would not be good to cancel my shows in Nairobi because this is something we had planned for a long time. But then, from here I will be headed to Uganda to pay my last respects to Ivan” said Chibu regarding Ivan’s burial.
But from the picture of the vigil and burial, it looks like Diamond didn’t travel to Uganda. First of all, Ivan and Diamond were never friends, secondly, this is Zari’s ex-husband, and Chibu is neither a relative nor a friend, which means it would be awkward.

The other obvious thing is that Ivan’s relatives would not welcome him anyway, owing to the fact that he dated and even sired children with Zari, who is Ivan’s ex-wife. I don’t think even tradition allows it.
Diamond has however shared a very cryptic photo on his social media, which shows a happy person unmasking themselves, written; Too many fake people in this world, then he captioned it with; “And it’s very hard to tell…..”
Who could he be talking about? Is it Zari (who seems that she was still in love with Ivan) or the people who are attacking her or criticizing him for not attending the burial? I bet time will tell.
