Diamond Platnumz is among the top celebrities in Tanzania who’ve joined the government in raising money to help in the fight against HIV/AIDs.
While addressing the youth in Tabora region on the importance of using protection as well as creating awareness about HIV/AIDs, he said,
Mimi niliparamia mambo Mungu akaninusuru sana, niliparamia kweli kweli. Lakini nikapenya kwenye tundu la sindano na sitaki kurudi kule nilitoka kabisa. Nawaelimisha nyinyi na najielimisha na nafsi yangu. Kama nimeamua kutulia na Tanasha na basi ikawa hivyo.
[I cheated but I was lucky. God saved me. I escaped by the skin of my teeth. I don’t want to go back to my old ways. I’m not only here to educate you but myself as well. Right now I’ve decided to settle down with Tanasha Donna]
The singer cheated on his wife Zari back in 2016 and sired a child with his side chic Hamisa Mobetto.
Zari in a series of interviews revealed that the singer kept disrespecting her, like that was not enough, he was also sleeping with Tanzanian socialite Lynn.
On Valentine’s Day, February 2018, Zari in an interview with Maina Kageni said,
I LOVED DIAMOND SO MUCH. GOD BLESSED US WITH TWO BEAUTIFUL KIDS. BUT I DECIDED TO LEAVE BECAUSE HE KEPT DISRESPECTING Me.
WHEN A MAN KEEPS DISRESPECTING YOU, IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON. DIAMOND KEPT ON REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKES HE HAD DONE. I KEPT ASKING MYSELF ‘WHY DO I HAVE TO SETTLE FOR LESS?’. I THEN DECIDED TO CALL IT QUITS.
WHEN YOU GET INSULTS FROM TROLLS, EVEN YOUR KIDS FEEL IT AS WELL. I HAVE ALL GROWN BOYS AND COULDN’T STAY ANYMORE. FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILDREN, I THINK IT WAS THE RIGHT TIME TO GO. I ‘M RAISING MY SONS TO RESPECT WOMEN.
