Diamond Platnumz’s father, Abdul Juma, has yet again put his son on the spot, claiming the musician has neglected him.
Speaking to Tanzania’s Ijumaa newspaper, Mr Juma said despite his son introducing his partner, Tanasha Oketch, to nearly every family member, he [Juma] is yet to meet the Kenyan radio presenter.
“That family [Diamond, his sister and mother] and I are not one thing, at all! I have seen – on social media – pictures of them eating life with a big spoon in one of Diamond’s new houses. In those pictures, I also saw my son’s girlfriend, Tanasha, [whom he is yet to introduce to me]. Diamond hadn’t sent me an invitation to join them for the party. Nonetheless, I am not worried, given the seriously strained relationship I have with him. What has remained between us is nothing but the titles ‘father’ and ‘son’,” said Mr Juma.
Diamond, in previous interviews, accused Mr Juma of abandoning him and his mother, when the “Tetema” hit-maker was only 6 years old.
The father and son have – since then – had a problematic relationship.
