Tanzanian star musician Diamond Platnumz has reacted to news of being dumped by his three-year fiancée Zari Hassan, who announced she had decided to end the relationship on Valentine's Day.
In a post on Instagram, the Bongo superstar said he feels that if things continued like they are, it could lead him “not seeing the month of March”.
He posted a video clip of Khalid Chokora’s song called Kuachwa, and captioned it: “Goodness! There are songs whose lyrics reflect exactly what happens in people’s life. My fans, I’d appreciate your prayers. I strongly feel that (if things continue as they are), I won’t live to see March, 2018.”
In the hit Kuachwa, Chokora sings: “Being ditched is detrimental to one’s health. While your ex-lover could be gaining weight, you, on your end, could be losing it (due to stress); being dumped hurts.”
In a message on Instagram on Wednesday, Ugandan socialite Zari announced the end of her union with the award-winning Sikomi hit-maker. She alleged that he cheated on her a lot.
She added: “Understand that this is very difficult for me to do. There have been multiple rumours; 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 and well-being cannot be compromised.”
Zari, however, promised to work with the Bongo superstar to raise their kids, Prince Nillan and Latiffah Dangote.
“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,” she said.
“I will continue to build as a mogul, i will inspire the world of women to become boss ladies too. I will teach my four sons to always respect women, and teach my daughter what self-respect means."
“Unlike many, I’ve been in the entertainment industry for 12 years, and through all my challenges I came out a victor because I am a winner, and so are all of you Zari supporters,” she concluded.
The two started dating in 2014 after the singer separated with Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu over claims that Wema couldn’t bear him kids.
In a recent interview, Diamond said he loves Zari because “of all the women she dated, only Zari agreed to give him children”.
