Diamond is East Africa’s most marketable musician. The star has made a name for himself in the entertainment industry as someone who not only churns out hits but also takes care of those closest to him, like his mother and sister.

But there is one family relationship that he has that is troubled. He is estranged from his biological father, Abdul Juma, who is ailing at the moment.

He needs urgent medical treatment but his son will not extend an offer of help to him. A recent photo has emerged showing the extent to which the artiste’s father is struggling.

The singer’s own half-sister, Zubeida, also attempted to intervene in the situation last week. Zubeida in a public plea urged the singer to humble and come to the rescue of his biological father.

Zubeida claimed Abdul’s persistent leg problem had become so severe the old man can barely get out of bed in the morning.

Will the singer heed the call?

Earlier reports indicated the Tetema hitmaker’s father had consistently made attempts to reach out to his son to no avail. It is understood the old man abandoned his family when the singer was at a very tender age and since then, there has been a cold war between the two.
