Zari’s baby daddy Diamond ready to have more kids

Diamond Platnumz has revealed he is ready to be a father again. This is despite him being a deadbeat dad to his five kids.

The artiste has two kids Zari Hassa a son and a daughter. He also has a son with Hamisa Mobetto and a son with Tanasha Donna.

Diamond had also revealed that he has a child with an unidentified married woman. In a recent post on Instagram, Diamond shared a video, shirtless and whining on his waist.

In the video, Diamond advertised his abs prompting fans to question his motive.

Among those who commented was Peace Hyde, the creator and executive producer of the reality TV series Young, Famous and African, who asked;

“Uncle @diamondplatnumz why are you playing with people’s blood pressure on a Monday is it fair?”

Responding to the comment, Diamond said it was time he added another child.

“You know it’s about time to add another kid… am magnetizing the mothers.”

Another fan gushed about Diamond saying his natamani kuzaa na wewe siyo kwa uno hilo Chibu Denga. 

The reason why many women want to get a child with you is because of that flexible waist.”

Diamond plays with his kids with Zari Hassan.

In the Netflix show Young, Famous and African, Diamond revealed that he has a 10-year-old child with a married woman.

Speaking to the show producers, Diamond explained why he keeps saying he had five or six children, yet the whole world only knows of four – from his three baby mamas.

“I’m single but you know sometimes there is no way I can just be alone the whole year so you know sometimes I can have one-night stands that complicate everything,” Diamond said.

“I have four kids…maybe 5 or 6.”

Asked what that mean, Diamond explained, “A couple of months back, my mum told me, she met this lady, I know this lady, and she said she has my kid but then, she doesn’t want to tell me because she is married and her husband thinks the kid is his. My child is 10 years old.”

He continued, “I got the child with a married woman. It was back in the days when I felt like the world is yours. 

I went on a tour in Mwanza. I know we had a one-night stand and I heard after some months that she was pregnant.”

A sullen Diamond added, “I have tried my level best to get connected to the child but the mother keeps pushing me away. I don’t want to lose my blood.”

In a past interview, Diamond told TBC FM about his encounter with the mother of his first child back in 2010.

“After our one-night stand encounter, she told me she is pregnant. I accepted the responsibility and I would take care of her but during that time, I started dating another girl then a lot of things happened in between.”

Diamond explained that he later went to Mwanza to seek her out to find out how she is doing.

“She told me the pregnancy did not get to full term and she lost the baby. but she lied. When I did my investigations I found out she had given birth and that is when I demanded to see my child.”

To date, Diamond has never seen the child.

In a video on her social, Zari recorded herself jamming to ‘I Miss You’ by Rayvanny.

In the video, Zari acknowledged his prowess in music but acknowledged that he is not well promoted.

Why Diamond Platnumz no longer takes part in local awards

Diamond Platnumz says he will no longer compete for local awards.

While speaking in London where he is promoting his new EP, Diamond was asked why he did not take part in the recent awards in Tanzania.

He said his ambition is to go international as he has no trust in local award shows occasioned by a failure to honour him in the past.

He claimed that despite his accomplishments, the awards were unfairly awarded to his fellow musicians.

He promised that he will never participate in the awards until they give him what he deserves.

“Sikua bado na imani na tuzo. Tuzo za Tanzania zilikufa sababu yangu. Mimi nilinyimwa tuzo wakapea watu wengine ambayo mimi nilistahili. Hizi zinazokuja mpya naziamini vipi? Lazima nizitazame kwanza nione zina uhalisia ama vipi.

“Tanzanian award shows died when they failed to honour me. I deserved the awards but they gave them to some other people. I need to take my time to observe the new shows to see if they are authentic or not.”

Diamond recently skipped the Tanzania Music Awards(TMA) saying he was busy elsewhere.

Diamond Platnumz was initially called ‘Almasi’

Diamond Platnumz says people nicknamed him Almasi before he settled for his brand name ‘Diamond’.

Speaking to a London-based media house, the singer recounted how his music journey started.

He said his fans then used to like his music and some would even cry when they listen to his Swahili songs.

“Tanzanian people love you when you do proper Swahili lyrics. People used to cry when they listen to my songs,” he said adding that he changed his style of music to attract an international audience.

“Since I researched and found out that there are songs you do for your country and there are those you do for your global audience, I started mixing Swahili and English.”

Asked how he built his brand, Diamond explained;

“The first thing when I started doing music was to come up with a brand name. I didn’t find someone called Diamond those days. People used to call me Almasi, which is Diamond in English. People used to appreciate my work. Then my brother Rommy started calling me Platnumz. That is how my brand name Diamond Platnumz stuck and I thank God I have come this far.”

Natamani ndoa! Diamond Platnumz speaks about his wedding plans

Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platnumz says that he does not hold any grudge against any artist in the world.

Speaking during an interview with BBC, Diamond said that he doesn’t care who insults him.
He said the only person he could have a problem with is one who insults his mum Mama Dangote.
“The only way I’m going to engage anyone in online war is if they insulted my mother. For me, I don’t care even when you insult me for a whole week,” he said.

Asked about his marriage plans, Diamond said people should stop forcing him into marriage.

“Natamani kuoa, naelekea kwenye kuoa. Everyone wants to be married. It could be soon. It could be a person they know but we cannot force people to get into marriage.”
Asked if it’s his mum who is planning for him the woman to marry, Diamond said his fans are hurting her.
“At this age, how can my mum plan my life? That life is long gone when a parent used to plan for who their son can get married to.”
Asked if the lady he is getting married to is from Zanzibar, Diamond laughed off.

“I don’t know for real.”

It proved to the world that Africans can deliver something like the best. We were trending the whole world. That experience changed me. I remember after the reality show, my DM was crazy, calls, my WhatsApp,” he said.

Diamond added that the reason people appreciated him more is coz he was real and people want to be entertained and see celebrities’ love life.

“After the show, even people who never treated me well started calling me. It changed my life and added me fun-base to me. I have got a world tour after that. I respect that and I can’t wait for the next season to come.”

Diamond’s subliminal diss after missing Tanzania awards

When Diamond a week ago told he doesn’t need local awards, he meant it.

On March 30th, Diamond told he doesn’t need recognition in Tanzania because they no longer interest him.

Platnumz and the entire Wasafi Records artistes missed on this year’s list of nominees for the Tanzania Music Awards.

Reacting to this, Diamond said his focus is on International recognition.

And true to his word, Diamond on Saturday April 9th showed off all the awards he has earned abroad. The collection is pretty impressive and perhaps a rebuttal at his countrymen.

He subliminally dissed his countrymen saying ‘Dam*! I need to collect my other trophies that have won’.

After missing out on an award, he told ‘I respectfully asked not to be included in the TMA awards because I want to put my focus on International awards.’

He added ‘I urge everyone to support the awards because they have been organized to help boost the industry. But we should encourage healthy competition and not allow infighting among ourselves as this is the reason foreign performers are able to be ahead of us in the industry’
