I couldn’t sleep on day Zari dumped Diamond: Ringtone

Gospel singer Ringtone says his obsession with Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan began on February 14, when the mother-of-five ditched top Tanzanian crooner Diamond Platnumz.

Speaking on 10 Over 10 show on Friday, May 18, the “Pamela” hit-maker said he could not sleep on that day as thoughts of his potential relationship with Zari, persistently lingered in his mind.

“When Zari dumped Diamond Platnumz, I tried to sleep but I could not. The thought of Zari being single, kept me awake,” Ringtone told 10 Over 10 hosts Willis Raburu and Joey Muthengi.

The controversial singer further stated that he sought God’s intervention, when he realised his feelings toward the 37-year-old woman were becoming stronger.

Ringtone claimed “God gave him the green light to pursue Zari”.

Ringtone declared he won’t relent in his pursuit for Zari Hassan despite the wealthy socialite turning down his advances.

Zari Hassan last Friday rejected a Range Rover gift the “Tenda Wema” star “bought” her, saying she had enough money to acquire any car of her choice.

Ringtone, in the 10 Over 10 interview on May 18, said his advances toward Zari were not inspired by the desire to remain relevant in the showbiz industry as claimed by a section of online users.
