Top Tanzanian musician Diamond Platnumz has said he will do everything humanly possible to ask his partner, Zari Hassan, for forgiveness after he cheated on her with video vixen Hamisa Mobetto late last year.
The illicit relationship resulted in a baby.
Speaking to Tanzania’s Clouds FM on Tuesday, Diamond Platnumz admitted that he and Mobetto dated from 2009 to 2010, and that their love affair grew at a time when the singer was struggling to get a breakthrough in the music industry.
“I blame the devil, who drove me into restarting an illicit relationship with Mobetto, which has resulted into the birth of a baby boy,” Diamond said.
“The baby boy is indeed mine; I would not want to deny that he is not my blood; he is. I have always given Hamisa money to support the child. I also bought the mother a Toyota Rav 4, I did not want her to struggle,” said Diamond.
“Before the baby was born, I gave the mother Ksh375, 000 for delivery. The baby was born when I was in Europe. I asked my mother Sanura Kassim to visit Mobetto and the baby in hospital in August, 2017.
“Sadly Mobetto called the press and looked down upon my mother on the day she gave birth. All I want is to ask my partner, Zari Hassan, for forgiveness, and all the people that were offended by my actions. I don’t hate Mobetto, though I request her to prioritise the boy’s future; posting pictures online won’t help.
“All the videos Mobetto is posting online – of herself and I in bed – won’t help her. I cannot leave Zari Hassan; I am ready to walk on my knees to South Africa to plead with Zari to forgive me,” said Diamond Platnumz.
Mobetto gave birth on August 8, 2017.
Zari Hassan is yet to publicly respond to the new revelation by her partner, Diamond Platnumz.
