Diamond is not one who gets flustered easily as his many public indiscretions prove. He rarely if ever apologizes or takes responsibility for making a mistake.
But there is one issue that seems to be a sore point for the Tanzanian superstar. The notion that his first born Nillan Dangote isn’t his. This rumour has been perpetuated ever since Nillan made his social media debut in 2016.
The internet was quick to point out he that he bore a spitting resemblance to his mother’s ex-husband, the late Ivan Semwanga.
Diamond took to Instagram on Thursday, May 10, to clear up rumours suggesting he was dealt a blow when it came to his kids. According to him, Nillan is his child as the two look alike and no one should contest that. He wrote in one of his mother’s post:
I should show this to the people who keep insisting Nillan is not my son.
He also declared that Hamisa Mobettos’s child is also his and no one should dispute that. A lot of media outlets and gossip pages had suggested Zari cheated on the musician during the period that Diamond and Hamisa were dating.
It was even rumoured the couple had performed a DNA test to determine who was indeed the father to the little chap.
Diamond isn’t the first celeb to face questions over whether he sired a child. Travis Scott, the American rapper, is facing questions about whether Kendall Jenner’s daughter is his.
The rumour is that Kendall’s bodyguard might be the father.
Closer home, it has been alleged that singer Bahati ordered a DNA test done on his daughter Heaven immediately after Diana Marua gave birth.
The claim is that the couple’s neighbours heard a whole hullabaloo after Bahati received a secret envelope that was to be opened by him alone. An allegation he strenuously denies.
Whatever the case, Diamond will not be the first man nor the last one to have suspicions about the parentage of his offspring.
Personally, a DNA test will be done for all my kids. No jokes!
