• Khadija Kopa is a legendary taarab singer.
• She is the mother to bongo flava star Zuchu.
Zuchu's mother, Khadija Kopa says Diamond has not gone to introduce himself as her son-in-law. The legendary Taarab singer told Wasafi Media that;
"Siwezikumpelekea mtu moja kwa moja wakati hajaja kutoa posa kwangu wala hajajitambulisha kwangu kama yeye ni mkwe wangu," (I can't look at a person and say they are my in-law if they haven't come to introduce themselves to me as my in-law or paid any dowry to proof that)
She went on to say that she is ready to welcome any man that her daughter is interested in;
"Mwanamme yeyote anafaa kua mkwe wa Khadija Kopa mradi mwanangu anampenda." (Any man deserves to be my in law as long as my daughter loves him)
Asked if her daughter told her that she is dating Diamond Platnumz, Zuchu said;
"Hajaniambia kwa sababu anajua misimamo yangu. Anawezakuniambia mchumba ambaye anaweza kuja kuposa. Hicho ndicho anawezakuniambia." (She has not told me because of where I stand. She can tell me that if she wants to get married. Thats what she can tell me)
On whether she has seen the footage of Zuchu and Diamond being cosy in public, Mama Zuchu said;
"Anasema huyo ni basi wangu tu. Naona labda bosi wake kwa sababu watu wa bongo flava mna mambo yenu, nayajua. Na mimi ni msanii najua." (She's telling me that he's just her boss. I know he's just her boss because I know how Bongo Flava artistes operate, I am one of them)
Meanwhile, she advised her daughter to just relax when she is blasted by haters as it is a normal thing.
"I feel like its just normal. I have been through alot than that. Those are just normal things.It happens to artistes."
"When I was going through challenges, she used to see them. I used to tell her how I am struggling. She saw how I was getting hurt.
She is used to that and that's why she doesn't mind haters. When something happens, I call her and tell her to relax, won't worry about that."
