When Zari Hassan announced the end of her relationship with Diamond Platnumz in February 2018, she insisted that he will co-parent with her.
“Understand that this is very difficult for me to do. There have been multiple rumors some with evidence floating around in ALL SORTS of media in regards to Diamond’s constant cheating and sadly I have decided to end my relationship with Diamond, as my RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DIGNITY & WELL BEING cannot be compromised.
We are separating as partners but not as parents. This doesn’t reduce me as a self-made individual, and as a caring mother, and the boss lady you have all come to know. I will continue to build as a mogul, i will inspire the world of women to become boss ladies too,” wrote Zari in part.
Monthly visits to SA
Zari has now compelled Diamond to be a responsible father to their two children Tiffah and Nillan. Tanzanian daily Ijumaa Wikienda reports that Diamond has been forced to travel to South Africa on a monthly basis for fear of losing custody of his children.
The mother of five is said to have hired a lawyer and who was aiding her to seek full custody on grounds that Diamond was continually absent in his kids’ lives.
“Unaambia siri ya Diamond kwenda Sauz (Afrika Kusini) kila mwezi ni baada ya kuwekewa mwanasheria huyo ambaye anamfuatilia kwa karibu ili kuhakikisha haendi kinyume na matakwa ya sheria. Unajua hata akiwa na shoo vipi ameambiwa ajipange ili kutofautiana na ratiba za watoto na akifika nyumbani pale kwa Zari wanalala chumba tofauti ingawa siku nyingine anakwenda kulala hotelini,” a source was quoted by the daily.
Diamond however dismissed claims Zari was seeking full custody, the ‘Jibebe’ hit maker explains that he has decided to travel to South Africa regularly to be with his kids on his own free will.
“Waswahili nimewazoea sana tu, wasiponiongelea na Zari hawaoni sawa, mimi huwa nakuja huku kwa ajili ya kuwaona watoto wangu, natimiza majukumu kama baba, hayo mengine nawaachia wao,” said Diamond.
