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

Hamisa Mobetto unpacked a lot recently 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.

‘I learnt how to smile at old age,’ Zari whispers

Zari Hassan has for a long time been wearing braces. The mother of five says that was the reason why she posted many of her photos without smiling.

Taking to social media, Zari revealed,

“Was told that I learnt how to smile ‘very old’ (🙄🙄😳😳). When I started wearing my braces about 3 years ago it seemed like forever that ill never achieve my goal but look at me now”

Adding that the lesson to learn from her newfound smile is that it’s never too late to do anything

“Lesson: it’s never too late to get that degree, its never too late to buy that house or acquire that car at 65. It’s never too late to do the things you’ve always wanted to do just because public or family has an opinion. At your own pace, and you’ll get there.
Here is to wishing you a beautiful, productive, blessed, healthy and fruitful week full of smiles. Inshallah/God willing 🙏#ItsNeverTooLate”

Get a girl now – Diamond and Hamisa told after cute video emerges of the two

Diamond Platnumz has had a hell of a life so far. The Tanzanian superstar has not only made himself one of the biggest musicians in Africa, but he has also succeeded in his personal life.

Yes, he might be a father Abraham who has gotten 4 kids with 3 different baby mamas but at least he has passed on his genes with clinical accuracy.

A post shared by SIMBA..!🦁 (@diamondplatnumz) on

And it seems that his fans want him to add a fifth child with his second baby mama, Hamisa Mobetto. This came about after a video of the Tanzanian video vixen in the company of her Diamond Platnumz and their son Daylan went viral.

The two have been on excellent terms this past year inevitably got their millions of social media followers talking since the video’s release.

Baby on board? Hamisa responds to claims she is carrying Diamond’s 5th child

In the video which was released in bits, shows Diamond and the son Daylan inside his car before Hamisa later on showed her face, revealing that she was the one taking the videos.

That got fans going gaga with many suggesting that the pair should get another child as they looked so good together, while others took it as an opportunity to attack his other baby mamas,  Tanasha Donna and Zari Hassan.

Below are some of the reactions;

While some might think Tanasha and Hamisa are enemies according to the comments, the women actually get along. Just recently Tanasha celebrated Hamisa’s son Daylan after she posted a video of him. She wrote, “My munchkin jamaniiiii 😍🥰 His lil brother is waiting for him.”

The two are friends, even helping each other on Tanasha’s latest song, “Liar”. The area where fans might have a point is that Zari might not get along with the rest of Diamond’s baby mamas, something all the ladies have been covert about.

‘Say it again’ Zari whispers to Diamond after telling off her haters

Is Diamond taking sides in a silent war between his multiple baby mama’s?

That seems to be the question after rumors this weekend that Hamisa and Tanasha took aim at Zari by talking about how women should show maturity and support each other.

Zari shared a video dancing to Diamond’s song and showing off a G Wagon with number plates ‘Baba Lao’. The car belongs to Zaris’ rich Uganda friend and she was celebrating his new acquisition.

Zari appears to have taken the message as ex baby mama’s ganging up on her and she responded with a comments that Diamond reacted to, assuring her that she is their ‘kiboko yao’.

Their fans noticed the banter and urged them to get married asap.

Zari paid glowing tribute to her Ugandan friend and his car saying maybe Diamond would want to drive.

‘Shem akikuja tutampa itakua yake’ she commented but was reminded that this will land her in problems with her haters. She responded that she doesn’t care.

‘They can. I’m not even with him but he remains the father fo my kids which I can never change or anyone’.

There has been talk of Zari flying down to Tanzania to reunite and now added to that is speculation that they are getting back together.

No witchcraft here! Tanasha and Hamisa’s sweet banter mocking Zari

 

Tanasha Donna has released a collabo with Masauti in a song dubbed ‘Liar’ where she talks about being able to pay bills on her own without ‘somebody’s help’.

After sharing pictures from the video shoot, we have now come to learn that Tanasha and Hamisa Mobetto are friends. Surprising since they never showed they talked. We all assumed Diamond’s baby mama’s all beef. Apparently Hamisa dressed Tanasha for some scenes in the new music video.

Tanasha and Hamisa get along so well that they even seem to be taking aim at Hamisa’s nemesisi Zari to show how mature they are. This comes a few days after Zari urged Diamonds mum to be careful about being bewitched after sharing too many pictures of granddaughter Tiffah.

The conversation struck me as a full on war on first baby mama Zari, who seems to be getting alot of attention from Diamond lately unlike the others.

Tanasha and Hamisa shared sweet affirmations on Instagram and the unity got fans noting how baby mama’s should get along and be each others support system.

It will be interesting to see what these two exes are also upto, and I’m also pretty sure Zari will respond. Mama Tee is always watching.

Great friends Akothee and Zari Hassan unfollow each other on Instagram

Akothee and Zari have been defined as friend goals among many women. The two celebrities have been supportive of each other through the many challenges and scandals they have faced over time.

The two have also spent time together going on vacations together showing that their relationship wasn’t just based on lip service.

But it seems that things might have fallen apart between the two. Keen Tanzanian blogs were first to comment on the fact that the two had unfollowed each on their respective Instagram pages.

Unfollowing in this social media age is a strong indication/precursor to show that a relationship is in trouble or has become obsolete.

‘Whether he is working or not, provide for your families’, Akothee tells women

The two haven’t been seen commenting on each other’s posts in recent times, a tell that they might not be close as they were anymore.

Zari used to comment a lot on Akothee’s posts while the Kenyan singer has also been silent not mentioning the Ugandan socialite by name anymore.

In 2019, Zari had been hosted by Akothee who took her golfing while in Kenya. Zari even asked Akothee to return the favour by visiting South Africa where she resides.

The president of single mothers agreed and promised that she would do so. It would be sad if indeed the two aren’t friends anymore as they ave more similarities than most.

They are both single mothers. They both have 5 kids. They both have/had complicated relationships with their baby daddies. They have all done well for themselves financially.

In essence, they looked like kindred spirits…

The blessing and the curse of dating Diamond Platnumz for Zari, Hamisa and Tanasha

Diamond Platnumz has dated so many women the past 10 years, one could almost forget all their names. The singer with the big smile and even larger lips has terrorised East African ladies and still continues to do so.

The man has earned himself a reputation of being a father Abraham and rightly so as he has gotten 4 kids with 3 different baby mamas (that we know off!) in the past 5 years.

Apart from the baby mamas, the man has also dated a few other women with the affairs becoming footnotes. Below is a list of the women the singer with the philandering eyes has been linked with;

While you might not know some of the ladies above, there are at least 4 that all of us can easily recognise. They are the women Diamond actually stayed long enough to take pictures with.

They are; Wema, Tanasha, Hamisa and Zari. The four will be forever linked to the musician although they have all moved on from him.

One thing I have observed though is that all these women haven’t been able to move on to better men since they left Diamond (or he left them).

My argument is simple, dating Diamond comes with plenty of blessings like improved popularity, clout and following but it also comes with one major drawback.

Tanasha Donna, Diamond and Maina Kageni

After he is done with you (or you are with him) the women are left picking up the pieces, with most likely a kid in tow. Now the kid isn’t the curse it’s the fact that East Africa’s most popular artiste dated these women. What! You read that right!

Is this Tanasha’s replacement? Question asked as Diamond’s mom posts photo of gorgeous woman

The man has looks, money and style. Who can match up to him when these women start dating other men? Look at Zari’s, Hamisa’s and Tanasha’s dating lives since they split up from the singer, they are in no man’s land as concerns relationships.

Zari Hassan with Diamond Platnumz in the past

Women rarely if ever date down and after Diamond who can they date that will sufficiently match up to the exceptional level he already set?

Let’s not lie, Chibu is the high watermark for men (despite his cheating ways) and that can be a daunting thing for men who would want to date his left-overs.

And if the man can magically match up to Diamond’s fame, money and looks why would he still be on the market? Quality, high-value men are snapped up quickly by smart women!

Sadly for the beautiful women like Tanasha, Zari and Hamisa the moment they dated Diamond they had tasted the sweet apex, the pinnacle of men. And once these women tasted that everything else below become bitter.

I’m about to cut this kid’s head off! Zari Hassan threatens son Nillan

Zari Hassan and Diamond might be having the second wind in their relationship but that doesn’t mean she is having it all her way in her other relationships.

The mother of 5 is having issues with one of her kids, so much so that she wants to go to extreme measures. Miss Hassan recently revealed on her Instagram page that her youngest child Nillan had been driving her so crazy that she wanted to cut off his head! (Of course, it was hyperbole).

The socialite explained that she was having a tough time dealing with her 3-year-old son who does not understand why he has to be locked in during this Covid-19 pandemic.

‘Don’t be bothered by people’s lives,’ Zari slams haters after Diamond stepped up

The term “Boys will be Boys” slogan applies to her son as he had cut her expensive white couch using a knife in the past. But it seems his naughtiness knows no bounds as he spoilt a package that his mother had received. She wrote;

“My Babor packages arrived and this is what happened they better open flights so i can ship you off. I’m done, I’m tired, I’m about to cut this kid’s head off. This kid tryna send me to jail. SMH.”

She added;

“He is stressed being in the house. Same environment, same people, he is not really interacting with other kids of his age. I was a bit reluctant to take him back to school,” she said.

And Zari will hopefully not have to take his head off as she schools are about to re-open in South Africa and so she will be able to take her son to pre-school.

“The fact that preschool is open now, I will definitely get him back. He is distressed, hence his behaviour,” she said empathising with her son’s plight.

Tanasha kwisha! I have a girlfriend and I am ready to marry her – Diamond Platnumz

Diamond Platnumz is East Africa’s Casanova. The man has been linked with more women than he has teeth! I kid! I kid! He is a rolling stone who doesn’t seem to be able to maintain a long-term relationship as has been evidenced in his liaisons with Zari Hassan, Wema Sepetu, Hamisa Mobetto and Tanasha Donna.

A long-term relationship for East Africa’s most famous artist seems to be a stretch looking at that tragic past but it seems that he might be ready to settle down for good.

The artist disclosed this to fans at a social gathering where he said that he had found new love after Tanasha’s untimely exit and is now planning to settle with her.

He explained that he was getting old to keep hopping from one woman to the next, busy expanding his lineage and that he wanted a change.

“Sipo single tena. Nina mwanamke ninayetaka kuoa. Sisi wengine sasa hivi hatutaki mahusiano, tunataka tuoe. Mwezi wa kumi tarehe mbili nitatimiza miaka 31 na sitaki kua tu na mwanamke. Sitaki kuwa na kimada (mistress), sitaki kuwa na hawara (prostitute), nataka kuoa.”

While it might seem that he is serious, the artiste had already said these exact same words in his former relationship with Tanasha Donna.

Although he kept on pushing the agenda that he would marry her, it never came to fruition. Maybe the artiste is feeling the pressure after his two sisters both got married this past year.

If it is true that he has got a woman that he wants to marry, I still don’t believe that he will be able to sustain a healthy, long-term relationship. Why? I leave that for another article.

Zari Hassan shows off posh Bentley bought by ex Diamond Platnumz(photo)

It seems that things between Zari and Diamond are at the best place they can be. Why? The two have been on such cordial terms the past few months that many are speculating that they might be getting back together.

The two have had a mending of fences the past few months after Diamond took a more active role in co-parenting the two kids he shares with his first baby mama.

This came shortly after Zarinah had called him out publicly for helping strangers but ignoring his own kids. That message seems to have done the trick and since then the Bongo star has acted behind the scenes spending more time with his kids online.

Just like old friends! Zari and Mama Diamond make fun of Tiffah in pleasant exchange

And it seems that the rumours that the co-parents will get back together might have some truth to them. Why? The recent information that Mr. Platnumz had bought a brand new car for his baby mama!

And not just any car! A Bentley! Zarinah herself revealed this news on her Instagram page. The light-blue in colour was delivered to the mother of 5 where she resides in South Africa.

Thank you T’s dad (Princess Tiffah) for the top-up,” she wrote, adding a prayer emotion at the end. A huge red ribbon was attached to the front, which gave a hint on how the two feel about each other at the moment.

Bentley’s are exotic cars and can go for as much as Sh 30 million on the market. The irony of the situation is that the gift came a day after Tanasha’s birthday.

The singer did not even mention her on her birthday while celebrating his mother, Mama Dangote, who was coincidentally born on the same day.

Zari Hassan reveals reason she and “King Bae” aren’t together anymore

Zari Hassan has zillions of fans online. Her fans follow her life and lifestyle like religious zealots but I guess that is what celebrity culture has become by and large.

I give that introduction to preface my critique for some of the things she claims to have done/or is doing. What do I mean? For a long time in 2019, the Ugandan socialite claimed that she was dating a mysterious man called King Bae.

Thing is, the public never got to see the face of this wealthy individual who had won the heart of the mother of 5. And that wasn’t all, Zarinah went to the extent of claiming that she and King Bae had gotten married in a lavish ceremony.

Just like old friends! Zari and Mama Diamond make fun of Tiffah in pleasant exchange

Funny thing is that we never got any photos of the auspicious occasion which goes against her character of showing off every facet of her life to her eager and attentive fans.

Despite all the evidence that King Bae was a figment of an over-imaginative mind, the Ugandan socialite is still sticking to the script-months later.

During a live video session, explained that she had split from him because he tried too hard to keep up appearances. According to her, she was single and flirting because her partner rented houses and cars and lied that he owned them.

“He rented expensive cars, expensive houses but time eventually ran out and he could not keep up that kind of lifestyle anymore because it is not who he was,” she explained.

She went on to say that she had been mingling with different guys but intimacy and dating have been thrown out of the table for now.

But thank God many of her followers are starting to wake up and questioned her story as it contradicted her earlier version 0f events.

They asked for receipts from the light-skin socialite with some asking her to produce papers and proof of ownership to show that King Bae had bought her a house as she once claimed on social media.

Methinks this web of stories that involve King Bae should come to an end. I am not going to call Zari a liar on this issue but the facts to tell me something about it ain’t right.

As Mama Diamond goes so does her son, Chibu or vice-versa. Recent events occurring between Zari and Sandrah(Diamond’s over-protective mother) have me wondering whether East Africa’s most desired f***boy will link up with the mother of his two kids.

Zari and Mama Dangote as she calls herself on her Instagram page have been on glorious terms the past few months-rekindling memories of the times the two shared when Diamond and Zarinah were a young couple.

This week the two added a memento for celebrity watchers when they shared what could best be described as a cute mother-daughter moment. The source of their joy was Tiffah-Diamond’s only daughter.

It started after Diamond’s mum posted a screengrab of Tiffah, on her Instagram page after ending a video chat with her.  Zari then responded by saying that the little princess was agitating for the Covid-19 lockdown to be lifted so she could visit her father in Tanzania.

But Mama Dangote laughed off Tiffah’s wishes saying that she would love to stay Covid-19 free as recently declared by President John Magufuli. “What is disturbing Tiffah is just jealousy, are police officers the one’s to blame for corona?” she said amidst laughter.

But it seems that those dark days are behind us with the lovely exchange above being proof. There are on such good terms that Zari even came out to blame women who have their kids growing up without their fathers!

Her change of tune didn’t end there as she even praised the rambunctious singer for realising the mistakes he has made in the past, noting that he had now started helping out with his kids.

Diamond Platnumz is a modern-day father Abraham, getting kids from across all lands, with mothers in different area codes.

This year, Father’s Day came at a kind time for East Africa’s most prolific artist and philanderer. The man is having a renaissance in his relationship with his first baby mama-Zari Hassan.

Zari meanwhile went the scorched earth method after breaking up with the singer on Valentine’s Day in 2018.

Last year, during Father’s Day, Zarinah dissed the singer by celebrating herself and her late husband Ivan during the day.

This year both Zari and Hamisa took their social media pages to wishing the musician a Happy Father’s Day. Hamisa celebrated both her baby daddies, with one of them being Diamond, sharing a clip during their son Daylan’s birthday, in which the Bongo star gave a small performance.

Zari’s message read, “Happy Father’s Day baba four, pray for life to see them grow into great adult beings (it’s every parent’s wish) glad to see you doing your part now. We appreciate you,” Zari wrote.

But his latest baby mama, Tanasha wasn’t feeling Chibu and decided to enjoy her time in Mombasa as she ignored the international day.

Clearly, Miss Donna still has some unresolved issues for the man who asked her to pay him to perform at her album launch (ouch).

Zari’s son Raphael gives his thoughts on Diamond’s relationship with her

Before Diamond Platnumz became the only bean in Zari’s githeri (forgive me for the bad joke!), the man who had been in her life was Ivan “the don” Sswemwanga.

The couple had been blessed with 3 sons, who looked like their wealthy late father only looking like they would become taller than he-something most fathers would be proud of.

The legacy Ivan left behind with his businesses and his kids has been nurtured excellently by his ex-wife Zarinah. Recently, one of her son’s spoke to Tanzanian blog SnS about her mother’s relationship with Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platnumz.

Did she secretly speak to Mama Diamond? Zari comes clean

Raphael Ssemwanga who is Zari’s second-born from her marriage to late ex-husband Ivan D narrated that they didn’t mind having the singer around because he was the one their mother had chosen.

He disclosed that the musician was making their mom happy and for that he was o.k adding that their relationship and there was nothing he could do.

“I didn’t mind because it’s who my mother chose so you know I can’t do anything. If he was making her happy at the time, then that was okay with me,” responded Raphael.

And how was the boy’s relationship with the singer? Raphael explained that he was in boarding school and only came home a few times, and they didn’t see each other much, because of Diamond Platnumz’s busy schedule.

“I was in boarding school at the time so I’d only come home a few times, I didn’t see him that much,” he said.

Adding that; “I don’t talk to him but my mum sometimes calls him so he can talk to Tiffah and Nillan.”

Raphael added that after parting ways with his mother, she still calls the WCB boss sometimes to talk to his children Princess Tiffah and Prince Nillan. The tall teenager also said that having younger siblings (Tiffah and Nillan) is nice and seeing them growing and taking care of them has been a very nice experience.

Zari pens lovely letter to daughter Tiffah that will get you tearing up

For a long time, I have had the sneaking suspicion that Tiffah Dango’te is the favourite child for both Diamond Platnumz and his baby mama Zari.

Why would I say that? The evidence is everywhere. Both Zari and Diamond post a whole lot more about Tiffah than the other kids that each of them has outside their past relationship.

Diamond-Tiffah-and-Zari
Diamond-Tiffah-and-Zari in the past

Attention for me equals affection and Tiffah gets plenty of that from her parents – more than all the other kids combined. The reason for that might that she is the only daughter that both Zari and Diamond have in their blended families and that means that she becomes the apple of their eye.

Her message came after Tiffah uploaded a confident video on her Tik Tok where she criticised those who couldn’t handle her ego or match her status and where busy calling her out for having ´an attitude´ which she condemned.

Her video made her mother Zarinah so proud and thius her long, wonderful message to her daughter was borne. Read it below;

LETTER TO MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER @princess_tiffah
Dear beautiful daughter of mine, your beautiful, confident, intelligent, smart, special, different. Your gifted. You were born to stand out not to fit. Your talented and the whole world is ready for you. You are everything they are not and that makes them fear, because people fear the unknown.

Did she secretly speak to Mama Diamond? Zari comes clean

Zari and Diamond Platnumz have been very chummy to each other the past few months with many wondering how the two who share two kids together had made up?

Was it their talks behind the scenes or the Covid-19 pandemic that had made Diamond re-think his lack of attention in his kid’s lives.

But that wasn’t the only thing theory out there with some saying that Zarinah might have reached out to Diamond’s mother (Sandra) for some intervention with her son.

As many are well aware, wherever Mama Dang’ote goes, so does Diamond. But was it true that she had secretly reached out to Platnumz’s mother and gifted her an expensive dining set, allegations that had been put in play by a popular gossip site?

In response, Zari explained that she had not sent Sandra any gift dismissing the news as pure gossip.

“Lies, I forgot its Udaku (gossip) page (sic),” Zari said adding laughing emotions at the end.

The couple started cooperating again at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic when Zari called out the singer for being a deadbeat dad.

It seems that that salvo was the one Diamond needed to start putting more effort into parenting the two kids he shares with her.

They, however, seemed to have finally found a middle ground to enable them to take care of their two children without fighting.

“Zari and I have not been talking, which is normal after we broke up. We have been communicating through a lawyer, but when I saw her comment, I sent her a message and talked to her. She is special since she made me a dad.

We have talked for the first time and realized maybe there has been a miscommunication between our lawyers, which we solved, and after this corona pandemic, we will resolve on how we will raise our children together,” wrote the singer.

The elated Diamond now speaks to his children as frequently as he pleases, an opportunity he does not take for granted.

“Nothing sweet than waking up to the sweetest video from your beloved kids,” he wrote after speaking to his children for the first time after a long time.

And from there the mother of Diamond Platnumz’ two kids showcases an image of perfection for her 7.7 million Instagram fans, leaving most jealous and envious of the high life that she now lives.

But what many might not know is that she like most born in Sub-Saharan Africa came from humble beginnings and is one person who shows that one’s past shouldn’t limit them from greatness.

Her photos remind me of one of our very own celebrities here in Kenya-Julie Gichuru. The former TV anchor is in her mid-40’s and is a mother of 5 like Zari but still looks great for her age!

‘Continue resting in peace champ, 3 years already but it seems like yesterday. We love you and miss you always #TheDon’
