“They said his cassava had failed,” Diamond’s father warns rumour mongers

Diamond Platnumz father, Mzee Abdul Juma, says that people have always spoken about Diamond ever since he was in his mother’s womb.

The celebrity father told Tanzania’s Yo Fave that now that he has kids, people will continue to talk about him.

“Naseeb wasn’t successful in getting a child with Wema and people talked about him. They said his cassava was not working. He has now gotten kids and people are still talking. People will always talk and you cannot stop them.”

He went on to say that Diamond Platnumz has taken after him in many of the things he does; Like wearing silver and gold chains.

“I was wearing such things even before Diamond was born. I used to sell them. They are not new to me. When you see Diamond do these things It automatically comes from me.”

Mzee Abdul for the first time was invited to Diamond’s Tandale home where he ate and danced with Mama Diamond and his entire family.

“I remembered when I was raising him and he really made me happy as a father. I blessed him. Mama Diamond and I are in a good relationship. We are fresh.”

Mzee, however, refused to comment and why Diamond’s other kids weren’t invited to the event.

“It’s a family issue that I cannot talk about. “

Mzee Abdul reunited with his son, Diamond mid this year at a popular Tanzanian radio station after years of not seeing eye to eye.

Diamond Platnumz’s father threatens to sue media over fake news

Tanasha proves her son was born on Diamond’s birthday (Documents inside)

Tanasha Donna has come out to speak out about the rumours that she and Diamond made up the fact that her son was born on her baby daddy’s birthday.

The mother of one came out with receipts to prove that her son’s story indeed started on the same day as his father, something I must admit I wasn’t fully convinced about too.

The scenarios were two; Either Tanasha purposefully got induced on Diamond’s birthday or she gave birth earlier and faked her delivery date. After growing tired of the constant attacks, the beauty went on Instagram and cleared things up.

She wrote, ‘What kind of mother would I be to let my son celebrate a false birthday each year? I would be a foolish mother to do that. Aga Khan would never post a fake birthday because it would be very easy to sue them.’

She said that it would be impossible for a respected hospital to play around with birth dates because that makes them liable for a lawsuit.

To back up her version of the truth, the beauty said nurses and doctors are willing to confirm that she actually delivered on Diamond’s birthday.

Initially, the plan was to stay quiet and avoid making a fuss of the allegations but like any human, Tanasha said she had to tell her truth. The gorgeous mum left the internet in shock when she announced her son’s arrival.

Zari says Diamond has not seen his kids for 9 months!

Zari was recently interviewed by Millard Ayo. The Ugandan socialite revealed a lot about her life, love, kids and business interests.

But as you most likely know, what most people care about when Zarina speaks is her complicated relationship with her ex Diamond. In the interview, she dished out some ‘tea’ about Diamond and his relationship with his 2 kids.

In a fresh twist, she trashed Diamond’s claims that he finally got to interact with his children after being “blocked” from seeing them.

In the interview with Millardayo, Zari vehemently denied claims that Diamond had reached out to their kids Tiffah and Nillan. According to Zari, in fact, Diamond has been out of touch for the past nine months, with no form of communication between them and the children.

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.

So who is telling the truth? This situation does not make sense. On Sunday, July 14, Diamond shared a cute photo of his children in what looked like a Facetime chat, with Zari saying that he took a quick screenshot of his kids but that he didn’t speak to them.

Diamond’s ex disclosed what irked her the most was the fact that Diamond allegedly made a fool of her. She said;

For Naseeb it was plain disrespect. I am a powerful woman I have an image to maintain. The respect was not there. Not only that so many times I asked him about the things I was hearing from the blogs and he denied everything.

The ugliest hairstyles ever worn by East African celebrities

Celebrities are always trying to widen their spheres, musically and also in the way that the public perceives them.

One of those ways can be in their fashion and style. Hairstyles are a wonderful way for a celeb to show off their uniqueness and individuality to the watching public.

But there are times when the celebs go wrong in the hairstyle that they choose. Some of those celebs are below;

Otile Brown

This singer is the one who has caused me to write this article. The abomination on his head is not only terrible to look at, it is also a crime against humanity!

Diamond

This is another celeb who cannot stick with one style and should be on this list several times as a serial offender. The fake locks epidemic have been popularised by East Africa’s most popular singer but they just don’t work on him.

I don’t get how he has been able to keep them despite the many women he has around him who can advise him against the style!

Bahati

I think you are noticing a pattern here. Fake dreads are bad! Bahati decided to try out a new style when he went to Dubai with his wife Diana Marua.

The backlash he received was so bad that even his wife Diana campaigned for that ugly mop of hair to be removed. Bahati acquiesced and a toddler somewhere smiled.

Rayvanny

The singer put one of most egregious hairstyles I have ever seen with his blonde noodle hairstyle. Again the fake dreads make a comeback.

Harmonize

The crooner is often recognised for his blonde hair but there are times that he has tried to forego the style in favour of Ghanaian lines that he wore at the Wasafi festival late last year.

I am torn on this one I must say.

Willy Paul

The ‘Haleluyia’ singer loves dying his hair, with blonde and white being a favourite for him. The singer also seems to be copying a lot of the styles that Diamond has tried out. It isn’t like Diamond has a stellar record at choosing wonderful hairstyles.

As you can surmise the common thread among all these hairstyles is that the celebs who are trying them are stitching fake hair onto their sculpts, a result that is not pleasant to the eye.

Zari Hassan lives a life that many a woman are envious of!

The single mother of 5 has a jet-setting lifestyle that shows her living very luxurious locales, from Dubai to expensive homes in South Africa.

One of those homes is in S.A and has been a thorn in her flesh as her critics have called her out for staying in the house of a man she broke up with last year. And yes, I am talking about the lavish home Diamond Platnumz bought in South Africa.

Now it seems that she and her new lover King Bae (how original!) have decided to get a new home together. The socialite shared the images on her social media page.

The chandeliers in the home are chic with the mansion also boasting a pool. This comes after Diamond exposed her for staying in the house that he had bought.

The singer further added that he was at liberty to throw the Ugandan beauty out of the posh home whenever he would deem fit. His fans then constantly told Zari to pack her things and move out of the house because she was no longer welcome.

Whoever King Bae must be, he surely has money and does fall in love rather quickly. Or Zari is just the type of woman men go crazy about and can’t seem to control themselves around her? Maybe…

She does remind me of the great American actress, Elizabeth Taylor. The two-time Oscar-winning actress was married 8 times to 7 different men. 7 different men!

That woman had something that Zarina most likely has; the ability to get commitment from eligible (rich) men.

Unfollowing my son is ‘normal’, Diamond’s mum says after beating Hamisa Mobetto

The drama involving Diamond Platnumz, his mum, Sandra Michaels and his baby mama, Hamisa Mobetto is far from over.

Hamisa was recently beaten up by Diamond Platnumz’ mother at her home in Madale. According to the star’s mother, Hamisa abused her and was disrespectful towards her.

“HAYO MAMBO YA MZAZI MWENZIE NI HUKO, PALE MADALE NI KWANGU NA SIMTAKI NYUMBANI KWANGU KABISA.YAANI KIUFUPI SIMPENDI NA SIMTAKI NA KILA AKIKANYAGA HAPA KWANGU NI KIPIGO TU.ALIPOKUJA KIWIZI USIKU ULE NA KULALA NYUMBANI KWANGU, ALIPASWA KUONDOKA KABLA SIJAMUONA KWA NINI ALISUBIRI MIMI NIMKUTE MAANA SIKU HIYO ASUBUHI YAKE NILITOKA NA NILIVYORUDI NDIPO NIKAMKUTA,” she said.

Diamond Platnumz’ mother claimed that when she went to visit Hamisa in hospital after she gave birth to the singer’s child, they decided to keep it private so that Zari wouldn’t know, but Mobetto went ahead to call the media.

Sandra claims due to this publicity, she was trolled mercilessly on social media.

“Kitendo cha kuniita mimi shilawadu mwenye moja ya chomboo ya habari alipokuwa interview nikaanza kutukanwa na kudhalilishwa kupitia mitandao ya kijamii, kutukanwa kiliniuma sana.

She further revealed that she will never ever support the relationship between Hamisa and her son, Diamond.

“KWANZA SIO WIFE MATERIAL. HAJUI KUTANDIKA KITANDA HATA KUFANYA USAFI NI MWANAMKE TU AMBAYE NI SHIDA.SIMPENDI HAMISA NA SITAKI AKANYAGE NYUMBANI KWANGU. LAKINI KAMA DIAMOND ATAENDELEA NA HAMISA HUKO NJE SIO MADALE.”

Diamond Platnumz’ mother is still in good terms with Zari and when asked about her relationship with her daughter-in-law she said;

“Zari namheshimu. Ni mwanamke ambaye ndiye wa kwanza kabisa kumfanya mwanagu aitwe baba. Nitaendelea kumheshimu na kumpa heshimu kwa kile anaschostahili.

Simkatazi Diamond Platnumz kuoa lakini sio Hamisa. Nataka mwanamke ambaye anajiheshimu, mwenye heshima na anayejua kupika lakini sio Mobetto.”

The celebrity mother was angered by Hamisa after she slept at her mansion without permission. She told a Tanzanian publication that she beat the video vixen and even pulled out her wig.

Hamisa ran for her life holding her sandals in her hands.

Now, due to this incident, pundits claim that Diamond’s mother has unfollowed him on social media.The Number One hitmaker is not among the 35 people that Sandra follows on Instagram.

That said, Diamond’s mother has pleaded with the public to stop bothering her about her family. Adding that her decision to unfollow her son is not a big deal, actually, it is something ‘normal’ that shouldn’t bother anyone.

“Waache kufatilia maisha yangu na familia yangu na wao wafatilie familia zao pia, kila mtu anafamilia yake waiache ya kwangu na kuhusu ku-unfollow hicho ni kitu cha kawaida wenyewe tushazoea,” said Sandra Michaels.

Haiya! Diamond Platnumz is not the owner of Wasafi Records, Manager reveals

This piece of news will blow your mind. Apparently, Bongo star Diamond is not the money guy behind the popular Tanazanian label, Wasafi Records (WCB).

The star’s manager let this piece of information slip out.

Of late Diamond has been having problems with Clouds FM management after his dancer almost ran over a TV crew that works for the media house.

Diamond’s manager, Sallam, in an angry rant called out the media house bosses in an Instagram post.

He posted:

“BREAKING NEWS: Saa moja kamili Usiku wa leo nakuja na makala maalumu naomba muweke bando, na simu full charge, notification ON. #YaliyofichwaYatafukuliwaLeo #TumekataaKuwaKaa”

Diamond PlatnumzHe was forced to withdraw his big announcement, Joe Kusaga, who is claimed to be one of the owners of Wasafi after learning his business partner Ruge Mutahaba the CEO at Clouds Fm, was the culprit in the reveal.
To avoid additional drama, Sallam instead posted:

“Kwa Heshima ya Joe Kusaga kukuombea msamaha kwa leo Bw Ruge Mutahaba naamua kukusitiri, ila ukiendelea kuyafanya ambayo unayafanya basi nitayaanika maovu yako yote unayoyafanya kwenye Industry ya muziki. WCB haina tatizo na media yoyote na wala haina tatizo na Clouds Media Group ila huyu Ruge Mutahaba ndio mwenye tatizo #TumekataaKuwaKaa”

It is whispered in the Tanzanian music industry field that  Joe Kusaga and Ruge Mutahaba, together co-own Wasafi Records. And going by the drama from last week, the WCB label heads are rethinking who their number one star will be and are opting to front Aslay as the star of the label instead of Diamond.

The bosses reckon that Aslay is let controversial and scandalous and a tad bit more talented than Diamond, vocally and in creativity.
