We hope soon she will find a father figure to help her raise the kids.

Its funny how we think the people we look up to always had it easy in life whereas most of them had struggles before breaking through.
While back then most musicians could not afford to live a good life most of them now can easily afford to travel around,drive expensive cars buy designer clothes and shoes while back then they could only see such in magazines
Here are some some musicians who have undergone serious transformation you would be shocked to see their old photos
Born Hubert Nakitare,nonini has seen a major transformation not only in his body size, but also in his fashion sense ,music growth,he is a true definition of ‘watu hutoka mbali’
Don’t get it twisted ,your favourite artiste diamond hasn’t always been an eye candy but with the money and the fame things seem to have greatly changed for him.
He can now afford the best of things money can buy and he can mostly be seen rocking designer attire,entertaining beautiful women and of course going for vacations something he could have only dreamt of
Don’t let the biceps lie to you back then Timmy had nothing to flaunt but he can now comfortably buy himself whatever he wants thanx to his music career.
His sense of fashion was way below poor but he has greatly transformed and the meek Timmy is gone.
Wyre the love child has always been an eye candy but nevertheless less he has seen a major transformation ,as he now looks more mature and confident unlike when he ventured into this music industry.
From back then singing as necessary noize Wyre has remained a sweetheart to many women but too bad he is off the market.
Forget the good looks and the well kept dreadlocks back then Dj Sadic rocked short hair which made him look so naive an easy target for nairobi thieves who steal from you in broad daylight.
Sadic has seen a major transformation given the fact he is among the best dressed DJ’s in Kenya something he never thought he would achieve
The self proclaimed queen of single mothers hasn’t always had it easy in life ,with time she has seen a major transformation and the photo below is a proof of that.
She now boasts of designer shoes,clothes,watches and a beautiful mansion to top it all.
Juacali popularly know as ‘Baba yao’ has seen a major transformation in his physical appearance ,going by his throw back photos,the only thing the musician has maintained all these years is his beautiful hair which seems to be growing longer by the day.
The ‘Shoulder back’ artiste has changed alot from the skinny young man he was to a true ‘gentleman ‘ who leaves ladies yearning for more,through the years the only thing he has maintained is his durag for reasons only best known to him.
Below are some of the comments from her fans

Being a celebrity comes with its fair share of troubles but all the public sees is the glamor and glitz that the media portrays.
Most celebrities have had to hustle hard before the fame and money caught up with them, so the next time you want to argue that they are lucky think twice because they have put in all the dirty work.
Below are some of the celebrities and the hustles they participated in
1. Diamond Platnumz
He is considered the most celebrated artiste in Tanzania not only for his good music but also for his energetic performances, but 11 years ago Dangote was just a young man working at Shell petrol station.
Part of his work was refilling the Reserve tank from the fuel tanks.
2. Simon Kabu
He is his own boss but before rising to being the man he is today, Kabu worked as a Motorbike Salesman something he did diligently for years.
Today he is Chairman and CEO of the African leading tours and travel agent Bonfire adventures.
Looking at him today, one would never imagine that the artiste whose good looks gives women sleepless nights once sold changaa.
After his mum passed away when he was only 12, Otile resorted to selling Changaa to make ends meet.
On him selling the traditional brew he says
“My mom died when I was about to turn 13. I don’t like talking about it but I don’t shy away from speaking about it because I know it could motivate someone. Sometimes when I would get caught, the officers would frog march me past the school compound where other children would see me. It was embarrassing didn’t like doing it but I had to survive,”
The self proclaimed President of mother-in-laws knows too well what it is to hustle, despite the fact that she can now afford to fly first class back then she was struggling.
Akothee was a taxi driver something she diligently did before lady luck smiled on her, she says
“My children went to bahari parents which was a high standard school even though I had nothing, (niliishi maisha ya kubahatisha, pata leo kesho zero) 😂😂😂😂, so even if you see me throw big birthday bashes today , it’s something that has been in my heart , to give my kids the best , that I dint receive, I will climb the highest mountains just for my kids not to go through what I went through .”
Today she is a proud of a thriving tour and travel company ‘Akothee Safari’s among other ventures.
5. Gloria Muliro
The ‘Sitolia’ hit maker was a house girl before her star shone, she is now a celebrated gospel artiste who has made a name for herself.
Maina Kageni is setting standards on what a radio presenter should be like, he easily creates rapport with his audience and they love him to bits.
2018 has been a great year for him as he has made great milestones not only for interviewing big wigs but also for landing lucrative deals.
Here are some of Maina Kageni’s biggest moments in 2018
1. Nominated Johnnie Walker Ambassador
Maina Kageni got named as Johnnie Walker brand ambassadors for the “Experience Formula 1 with Johnnie Walker” promotion, something that left many envious as this is an international brand.
Crazy as it may sound visiting Monaco was a big deal for Maina Kageni because not only did he have a chance to go sight seeing but he was treated to VIP treatment, something some of us will only experience in movies or reality shows.
During his tour he got a chance to meet Formula One supremo Flavio Briatore.
In an earlier interview with Daily Nation he opened up on how hard it was
“Appreciate and love your mama…feeling kinda emotional tonight. Wish she could be here so I can spoil her, My mom died when I was about to turn 13. I don’t like talking about it but I don’t shy away from speaking about it because I know it could motivate someone. Sometimes when I would get caught, the officers would frog march me past the school compound where other children would see me. It was embarrassing didn’t like doing it but I had to survive,”
Even though his mum passed away, she would be proud of how her son has turned out.
3. Mike Mondo
His captivating voice on radio attracts women’s attention and it is undeniable that he is God’s gift to women.
Mike Mondo who runs a radio show on Classic 105 was brought up by a single mum after his dad passed away when he was only 13.
“My dad died when I was 13 years and today I am 36 years. However my mum did not get another man to call a husband. I had a conversation with her and asked her why she decided to live alone for all those years since my dad passed on.”
He is an activist-cum-politician brought up by a single mother.
Mwangi had earlier narrated how he got his then girlfriend pregnant, leading to him being thrown out of the church.
The main issue was that he was being brought about by a single mother who didn’t deem it fit to talk about s#x.
“I was brought up by a single mum and my eldest brother didn’t bother telling me what sex was and its context. The church told me you will discover what it is when it happens. Unfortunately, the church didn’t see it fit to tell us that in case you found yourself tempted, you could use a condom.”
Dylan, Hamisa Mobetto’s son with Tanzanian artiste Diamond Platnumz officially turned one year older and his parents cannot contain their excitement.
Hamisa is a mother of two with Dylan being her youngest, she is understandably excited.
She took to her social media platform to celebrate her son with this message
“Happy birthday my Lion Cub @deedaylan I Love You Son ❤️🎂🦁”
Diamond also took the chance to celebrate his son with Mobetto with the beautiful message below
“A Very Happy Birthday to the Next Platnumz…My Kitinda Mimba, Mswahili Mwenzangu, Maskini Mwenzangu…Mnyonge Mwenzangu…Mengi Uloyapitia Ukiwa mdogo, usiyejua hili wala lile yamenifanya nikupende sana na kuhakikisha nakulinda na kukutunza kwa hali yoyote ntayojaaliwa…Insha Allah Mwenyez Mungu akukuze vyema, akupe Akilu, Afya, Furaha na akubariki, Ukikua uwe Mwanamziki Kama mie baba ako, Uzidi kupendwa na ukifanikiwa uwainue Maskini wenzetu zaidi Mtaani….Happy Birthday My Handsome/ Young King / Young Lion / Young Simba / Young Dangote
Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz is regretting why he didn’t fight for his relationship with Jokate Mwegelo.
The actresscum b-usinesswoman, who was recently featured on Forbes 30 under 30 in Africa was last week appointed a District commissioner in Tanzania.
Well, Diamond Platnumz is among the many who’ve reacted to Jokate’s new position and in an interview with a local media house, he revealed that he regrets dumping her.
The father of three who still can’t believe that he left her, said he may have been bewitched to leave her. Diamond Pltanumz admitted that he’s still heartbroken for letting her go. He said:
Jokate was very innocent and never did anything wrong to me. I put her through a lot of trouble and created a perception in peoples mind that she was a bad girl who had snatched me from Wema (Sepetu). Truth is I’m the one who pursued her. I dated her then broke up with her without a reason and run back to Wema.
To date I, don’t know why I left her, maybe I was bewitched because she did nothing wrong. She is hard working and has built a career for herself. She is still my friend but every time she visits I feel ashamed of the situation. I still feel bad about it.
After parting ways, Jokate went ahead to date Ali Kiba who also played her and married someone else. Diamond, on the other hand, has been involved with other women, to the extent of siring kids with Zari and Hamisa.
Tanzanian crooner Diamond Platnumz and Zari Hassan’s daughter, Princess Tiffah has turned three today.
The little girl, who won the hearts of many barely 24 hours after she was born, is a baby boss. Princess Tiffah is working with top banks and baby shops in Tanzania. Isn’t she blessed?
Well, the Utanipenda hitmaker has penned a sweet message to his daughter and it read:
I do love you, not because you are my Daughter…Nah! I love you because you love me more than aything in the World…. sometimes I even wonder why you Love me so….and that is the reason why I can’t sleep without praying for you… I can’t sleep without thinking about you… and most of the time when you come on my mind I feel like I owe you more than a life…Inshaallah, Mwenyezi Mungu akukuze vyema, Akupe akili, Afya, Adabu, Umri mrefu wenye Furaha na Future nzuri baadae…..Nakupenda sana Mwanangu, Nakupenda sana Tiffah angu…. Happy 3 Birthday mama🙏🏻 @princess_tiffah.
Diamond Platnunz is besotted with his daughter and recently after a video of her praying for him and her grandmother went viral, and he was mesmerized. He commented on Tiffah’s message by saying that he loves his children.
PRAYING FOR YOU GUY AS WELL.. PAPA LOVES YOU SO MUCH.
The singer’s mother, who loves Zari’s children a lot compared to Hamisa’s also penned a letter to her grandchild.
Like Dad Like Daughter. Wa kwanza ni wa kwanza na hawezi kutokea mwengine zaidi yako, wewe Latiffah ndo ulianza kufungua dimba kuwa mtoto wa SIMBA @princess_tiffah Kila nikikuangalia kiungo kimoja baada ya kingine tunajiona wenyewe wallah Yaan NAKUPENDA SANA PACHA WANGU @princess_tiffah 🎂 Happy Birthday to you Sister TEE ❤MUNGU akukuze vema Mjukuu wangu kipenzi na kamwe sitoacha kukupenda daima❤❤❤
Diamond Platnumz’ mother has always showered Zari with praises for proving wrong those who mocked her son, claiming he was barren.
She likes Zari unlike Diamond’s baby mama Hamisa Mobeto. In a previous interview after Diamond and Zari parted ways, Sandra revealed that she will never allow Hamisa to get married to her son.
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 HESHIA NA ANAYEJUA KUPIKA LAKINI SIO MOBETTO.
As mother to the most celebrated artiste in Tanzania celebrated her birthday here is his sons messages to her
“I can’t Stop Wishing you Happy Birthday Mom… Coz i Love you So Much, and i know how much you love me as your son.You love me even to an extent that you hate anyone who tries to to do bad things to spoil things for me in my life.
You will protect and defend me even when it was me who is on the wrong ,you will always be by my side
As you celebrate your birthday today i pray that you will love your grand children the same way you love me because they are still young and they have done no wrong.
I know sometimes their parents wrong you because of our own personal issues between me and them .
Involving you in our drama despite the fact you don’t even know where i source my women from.”
He goes on to add
“It is always my fault yet they blame you despite the fact that i am past the age where you can control me and give me a spanking for my behaviour.
But for the great love you have for me i ask you to please forgive me for being the cause of all this , and please i ask that you continue loving your grandchildren after all thy are just kids who know nothing.
And even when their parents fault you and use the children as their scapegoat for faulting do not judge them because people on social media will only rejoice.”
As he winds up Diamond tells her mother on how unity should be their mantra given the fact that as much as social media is good it has its short comings.
“They will even go to an extent of creating teams for their own benefit not favoring the kids despite the fact that none of them has ever contributed even a single penny to buy diaper for this kids.
Once social media people finish trolling and dissecting our family on social media they will go back to their own home to their family while you will be left picking up after the mess in your own family.
Mobetto is not in good terms with Diamond’s family and not so long ago, the singer’s mother gave her a thorough beating. This is after Hamisa insulted her and Diamond’s mum has warned her never to set foot into her home.
Sandra told Tanzanian press:
“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.”
Diamond Platnumz mother further revealed that Hamisa insulted her during an interview with a local media house and she was hurt.
She claimed she was trolled on social media and she wasn’t happy.
“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,” SHE SAID.
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 HESHIA NA ANAYEJUA KUPIKA LAKINI SIO MOBETTO.”
Well, it’s clear that Diamond Platnumz’ family is not happy with the relationship between Hamisa Mobetto and the singer.
Hamisa Mobetto has decided to try her hand in music with her single Madam Hero which is mainly a dedication to women urging them to shun the myth that they can’t do anything.
According to the damsel, the song was recorded last year (2017) . While releasing the clip, Hamisa gave her thoughts saying
“To say the truth i have been through a lot🙌🏽!!! ….but i don’t have anyone to blame because every one has their own opinion in every situation and no one knows the truth more than the victim themselves.But i believe in giving the society around me a reason to smile,the women around me,the girls.!!
I did not plan my path to be this but it seems God has his reasons.I hope you will accept my song Madam Hero which is my first song under The Mobetto Foundation .Like the power to keep fighting and not giving up and looking forward for every woman who plans to pass through my path 😰🙏🏾. I recorded this song last year under c9 records under the supervision of @fobyofficial ….. Soon i will put it on a music App and all the money received from the sales of the song will go to women bringing up children under tough conditions or women who deliver under harsh conditions.
In shaa Allah 🙏🏾 #MadamHero ….. soon In God We Trust ❤️✅”
Hamisa was initially a video vixen in Diamond Platnumz’ video for his hit song Salome and with the path she is taking, it seems Diamond was a good mentor.
