Bongo star Diamond Platnumz has recently opened up about co-parenting with ex-lovers Zari Hassan and Hamisa Mobetto months after breaking up with both of them.
Speaking to Tanzanian online TV Dizzim, the ‘Kanyaga’ crooner explained why he has not been jetting to South Africa to see his children with Zari -Nillan and Tiffah.
The Wasafi CEO accused the Ugandan socialite-cum-businesswoman of turning his kids against him now that he has moved on with someone else.
He further intimated that Zari may not have fully moved on despite dumping him publicly on social media.
“Watoto wangu niliwa follow, ila mama yao akaniblock…Licha ya makosa yangu yote, ikifika kwa watoto wangu nipo very focused,” said Diamond.
[“I followed my children on social media but their mother blocked me. Even with all my flaws, when it comes to my children am very focused.”]
“Nahakikisha chochote naweza kumfanyia mtoto wangu niweze kumfanyia….ila mzazi mwenzangu zile hasira kwa kuwa hatuko pamoja anazionyesha kupitia watoto.”
[“I make sure that I do what am supposed to do for my children…but their mother exerts her rage at the fact that we’re no longer together through them.”]
During this past Fathers day – June 16, 2019 – Zari wished herself a ‘Happy Fathers Day’ on her Instagram account, increasing speculation that Diamond was a dead beat dad.
However, when speaking about his other baby mama – Hamisa Mobetto – Diamond had surprisingly positive remarks.
Diamond praised Hamissa as a very understanding parent, adding that she is easy to co-parent with.
“Mtoto wangu wa Tanzania huwezi kuskia kuna shida, japo mama yake tushakuwa na matatizo naye, yuko very understanding. Na provide kila kitu,” he said.
[“You will never hear any problem concerning my child with Hamisa, we have had issues with her but she is very understanding.”]
“Alikubali kuwa hatuwezi kuwa pamoja kwa hivyo kilicho baki ni kumlea mtoto.”
[“She understood that we could not be together and therefore the only thing remaining is to raise the baby.”]
