Fast-rising Kenyan songstress Nadia Mukami says her new song titled “Lola” featuring Masauti was inspired by the roller coaster love life of East African celebrities Diamond Platnumz and Zari Hassan.
Speaking to Tanzania’s Dizzim TV recently, Mukami said: “My song tells the story of a couple, who, when they first met, did not have so much in terms of finances and fame. They spent a period together, worked hard, and, eventually things looked up for them. However, the man thought he had gotten his life together, and, so he could attract many women simultaneously. Basically, it mirrors the love story of Diamond Platnumz and Zari Hassan. I thought to myself: ‘Why not compose a song inspired by the story of the two celebrities?’”
“Lola”, which was released in late May, 2019, has thus far attracted over 445, 000 views on YouTube.
Zari Hassan and Diamond Platnumz dated between November 2014 and February 2018, with their relationship yielding two children – a 2-year-old son, Prince Nillan, and a 3-year-old daughter Latiffah Dangote.
In her announcement of their break up on February 14, 2018, Zari accused Diamond Platnumz of disrespecting and cheating on her.
Diamond denied the allegations.
