Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz’s Madale home turned into a theatre of chaos late this week after the musician’s mother, Sanura Kassim, alias Bi Sandra, clobbered Hamisa Mobetto, Diamond’s rumoured lover-cum-baby mama.
The beating was so thorough that Hamisa Mobetto’s wig fell off during the scuffle, Tanzania’s Global Publishers reports.
The vicious fight started when Ms Kassim bumped into Hamisa Mobetto at Diamond Platnumz’s Madale home, which is located in the outskirts of Dar es Salaam.
Global Publishers reports that were it not for Diamond Platnumz’s quick intervention, Hamisa Mobetto could have sustained serious injuries.
Diamond managed to whisk Ms Mobetto to his car and ordered his driver to speed off before Ms Kassim could inflict more harm on the video vixen.
Diamond’s mother does not approve of Ms Mobetto as her potential daughter-in-law, Global Publishers says.
Sources, who spoke to the outlet, revealed that Diamond Platnumz was so fraught with anger that he confronted his mother, something that the “Sikomi” star has never done in the past.
“The power of intimate feelings between Diamond and Mobetto has created a gulf between the singer and his mother. For the first time, Diamond Platnumz sided with his lover and not his mother. It was so unlike him. If Mobetto has used charms on the singer, then I suspect they [charms] are very powerful,” an insider told Global Publishers.
Sources close to Diamond’s family say Ms Kassim wants her son to marry his immediate ex-lover, Zari Hassan, and not Hamisa Mobetto.
It would be remembered early this year, Diamond Platnumz hinted at settling down by June. The identity of his better-half, is yet to be known, though quotas believe the highly-decorated artiste would marry Hamisa Mobetto.
Following the Madale fight, Diamond’s sisters Queen Darleen and Esma Platnumz are siding with their mother, Sanura Kassim.
Queen Darleen has been quoted in several Tanzanian media outlets saying she prefers Zari to any other woman, when it comes to helping Diamond make a choice for a wife.
Esma Platnumz, on the other hand, has been quoted professing her approval of Diamond’s ex-lover Wema Sepetu. Esma, however said, in a past interview, that she has nothing against Zari Hassan.
“I cannot prescribe a partner to Diamond,” said Esma.
Diamond Platnumz’s father, Abdul Juma, has faulted Ms Kassim for beating up Ms Mobetto.
“She (Ms Kassim) did not do a good thing. I do not approve of what she did. She shouldn’t meddle in her son’s love affairs. I do not know how she would have felt had Hamisa beaten up her son. It does not paint a good picture, at all!” said Mr Juma.
Mr Juma, just like Esma, says he approves of Wema Sepetu for a daughter-in-law.
“Wema really loved and cared for me. She’d visit me at my home in Magomeni, Dar es Salaam. It is through her that Diamond and I got close to each other after a long stint of having a sour relationship. Wema looked into my welfare very much,” said Mr Juma.
Ms Mobetto and Diamond Platnumz have a son together.
Their son, Prince Dylan, turns one in August.
