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.

“Rayvanny has a good voice. Every song is good. He can sing and he just doesn’t get that promoted but Rayvanny can really sing.”

This comes a few hours after allegations that Rayvanny has ditched Diamond’s record label.

Rayvanny has been missing some of the label’s big events like Zuchu’s ‘Mahaba Ndi Ndi Ndi’ concert and Diamond’s “FOA EP” launch.

While asked about the allegations during his ambassadorial endorsement event, Rayvanny said;

“It’s normal when you are under a label for there to be disagreements on various issues.

There will come a time when Rayvanny will leave but for now, I am Wasafi for life.”

Diamond reveals there is a Season 2 of Young, Famous and African reality show

Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz is in London for a world Tour and to promote his EP ‘FOA’.

Speaking to No Signal, a London-based media house, Diamond spoke about various topics about his success this year.

Among them was his reality show on Netflix, Young, Famous and African saying the show has opened a million opportunities for him.

Diamond said his fans have increased globally.

He explained that on the premiere day, his DM’s went crazy with people from all over the world calling and sending him congratulatory messages.

He said that he had a different experience working on the show unlike when he is shooting music videos, Diamond said the reality show took time.

“It was amazing doing the reality show. I wasn’t used to shooting shows. You know music videos take a day or so. The show took like a month. Everything went perfectly and they had a great team.

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.”

Zari Hassan body shames short men in the gym

Zari does not think short men need to hit the gym as hard as tall men.

She made comments that were interpreted as bodyshaming height challenged men on her Instagram stories.

‘no pun intended and please don’t get offended ok? short guys, if you know you are 4.8, 4.9, 5. you know 5.3 max please stop trying to bodybuild yourself to look like Dwayne Johnson or the Rock who is 7ft heightwise. Stop trying to bodybuild, short people who really bodybuild themselves, dude you end up looking like dwarfs, I don’t even know why this thing crossed my mind.’

Slightly tickled at her thought process, Zari added

‘people who know me know ‘I’m 5’1 yeah hard to believe, there’s things I wouldn’t do as a short person guys no y’all end up looking so damn funny. and no offense.’

Her comments have not gone down well with the interwebs:

‘And when you are confident and know your goals, you don’t get intimidated by nobody’ Lilian said ‘Straight up’

‘She is very successful and loved by alot stays on her own lane so they are just jealous of her 100’ Lilian said ‘Is jealousy still a thing? Especially for grownups?

Hamisa Mobetto: A case study of women being their worst own enemies

Hamisa Mobetto unpacked a lot when she was interviewed by Wasafi media. The mother of two had a lot to speak about but the vignette that stood out for most was her revelation of the trials she had faced having a baby while dating Diamond Platnumz.

Speaking in an interview with Wasafi TV Hamisa confessed that she had suffered three miscarriages before giving birth to her son, Dylan.

“If there’s someone who was 100 percent sure that Dylan was his kid, it was Diamond. I suffered three miscarriages before I gave birth to Dylan. During the pregnancy, we were together until the day I went to give birth.”

While I am happy for Hamisa and Diamond that they were able to finally get a child from their apparently short liaison, I still think the whole affair stinks to high heaven.

My issue

What get’s me is that Miss Mobetto was perfectly OK to date a man that she knew was already dating another woman. At the time of her affair with Diamond, the singer had already had a child with Zari Hassan his first baby mama.

Not only that, his second-born Nillan with Zari would be born a few months before Dylan was born. Tiffah, Diamond’s eldest daughter was born in August 2014, while Nillan was born in December 2016, with Dylan being born in August 2017.

Tanasha’s latest confession proves Diamond can’t have a long-term relationship (opinion)

This means that Diamond was seeing (sleeping with) Miss Mobetto for some time and not as a fling like we were made to understand. The rumours we had had at the time about the affair was that they met on the set of Diamond’s song, “Salome” where Miss Mobetto was the video vixen.

The joke doing the rounds since then was that Diamond would get kids on the first try because his pull-out game was as weak as Genghis Khan’s. But now that story can be put in the trash-bag as Hamisa revealed that she had 3 miscarriages before she got Dylan.

That tells me that the two had had a long-term situationship-one that can successfully fit in 4 pregnancies(I am not a doctor but the period must not be less than 6-8 months).

According to data; women who know they’re pregnant, about 10 to 15 in 100 pregnancies (10 to 15 per cent) end in miscarriage.

Most miscarriages happen in the first trimester before the 12th week of pregnancy. Miscarriage in the second trimester (between 13 and 19 weeks) happens in 1 to 5 in 100 (1 to 5 per cent) pregnancies.

Women are their worst own enemies

This brings me to my point; Miss Mobetto knew that the singer was in a long-term relationship with Zari but that didn’t stop her from still giving away the guava to him.

That Zari was pregnant with Nillan while Hamisa was sleeping with Diamond didn’t matter one bit to her. In fact, she slept with a married man so much so that she had multiple miscarriages during that time.

Dylan was not an oops baby but borne out of premeditated desire. She knew what she was doing with a married man and didn’t care what would happen when the world(Zari) found out. In Miss Mobetto’s world, it was (Me, Myself and I).

Zari would later on dump Diamond in early 2018, attributing his philandering to her decision. Many of her fans blamed Hamisa for the break-down of the relationship, something I didn’t quite understand then as I blamed Diamond solely for not keeping his zip up.

But with this new info, I see Hamisa in an entirely different light, that of women being their worst on enemies.

Yes I’ve been a maid before – Zari shockingly reveals

Zari has the life many women and girls dream off. The house, the cars, the kids and the fame. The woman has also been able to get two high-value men to commit to her and give her progeny! A mean feat I would say.

Zari’s 18 year old son Pinto graduated in November and the happy mum has alot to deal with.

They were also taking pictures for Prince Nillans upcoming fifth birthday.

As they relaxed later on, Zari shared a video bonding with her kids. Pinto tells Zari that he needs money to go sherehe, but she refuses. He then threatens her to unleash info.

Pinto then responded ‘you will see child abuse stories in Uganda in Tanzania, there will a story that mother of what what refusing to give money to the kids. I’m just saying’
