Zari was in Kenya recently and word on the street was that she did not meet up with Diamond Platnumz who was also in the +254.
In an interview with the Tanzania media station, Zari now says she does not have to broadcast her meeting with Diamond.
“Because we are already a close-knit family, and I always talk to Diamond, the whole time, we talk about our children, we talk about other things how we are doing na vitu kama hivo.
So it’s not a must if I have spoken or met Diamond in Kenya that I must put it on social media. Oh, I have met Diamond! I am not a fan to tell the media I have met Diamond. I am the mother of his children, not a fan”
Sources told that the two ex-lovers were in the city for business and to shoot an episode of the ‘Young, Famous and African’ reality show.
On that Wednesday, Zari said her visit was business-related.
“I’m also supposed to be working with the governor’s (Mike Sonko’s) wife, and we are supposed to visit children’s homes.
Me coming to Kenya and not tapping into that would not be a Zari visit. I love the Kenyan food, that’s ugali, nyama choma and sukuma wiki.”
The Ugandan-born socialite is currently in Tanzania again to distribute sanitary towels to girls.
While visiting Kenya, Diamond took some time off to hang out with his son Tanasha Donna.
Tanasha was outside the country on business.
On the first day, she spoke to the assembled media who eagerly waited with bated breath for her to oblige them, something she did with the likes of Mungai Eve.
Unfortunately, that attitude wouldn’t last for the length of her trip as the last two days she kept on postponing interviews with other media houses until she finally declined.
A Mpasho writer was invited to interview her on Thursday evening at Runda only to be locked outside for five hours.
“Who invited you here? You have to wait for they are still shooting,” a security guard said.
The shoot took longer and at around 8.15 pm, her manager Galston through a phone interview said Zari was too tired to do an interview.
“I have been informed about you guys and assured you are good people. Unfortunately, she is tired and needs to go and refresh for another gig tonight,” he said, promising an interview on Friday.
“Please make time tomorrow at 12:30 pm, she will do an interview with you.”
Zari was back at Runda Mumwe on Friday, with journalists waiting to interview her. She just peeped from the door and continued with her shooting.
Her manager sent a message saying he would update her on what time she could be interviewed.
“I will update as we go.”
Aware that journalists were waiting to interview her, Zari was cautious that no ‘stranger’ took any photo of her.
Before stepping out, she ensured that nobody was holding a phone and her manager walked hand in hand with her.
The shoot continued up to around 5 pm, with no communication from her manager.
After follow-ups, Galston said she had refused to do an interview as there were other businesses she was doing.
“I am sorry but she has said no.”
But why didn’t she do the interview? According to sources who spoke to Mpasho, the mother of 5 refused to do an interview after a story about her new and much much younger bae (the word used was ‘toyboy’) was done by a Kenyan blog.
