Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan has dumped her Tanzanian flame, Diamond Platnumz, after 3 years and 3 months of a turbulent love life.
In an Instagram post on February 14, Zari said she arrived at the decision after keen scrutiny of Diamond Platnumz’s behaviour. She says: “he cheats on her a lot”.
She wrote: “Understand that this is very difficult for me to do. There have been multiple rumours; some with evidence floating around in all sorts of media in regards to Diamond’s constant cheating; and sadly I have decided to end my relationship with Diamond, as my respect, integrity, dignity and well-being cannot be compromised.”
‘WE SHALL CO-PARENT’
Zari Hassan, who has two children with the Sikomi hit-maker, says she will work with the Bongo superstar to raise their children, Prince Nillan, One, and Latiffah Dangote, 2.
“We are separating as partners, but not as parents.
This doesn’t reduce me as a self-made individual, and as a caring mother, and the boss lady you have all come to know,” she said.
‘I SHALL OVERCOME’
Zari says despite this development, she will still emerge strong.
“I will continue to build as a mogul, i will inspire the world of women to become boss ladies too. I will teach my four sons to always respect women, and teach my daughter what self-respect means.
“Unlike many, I’ve been in the entertainment industry for 12 years, and through all my challenges I came out a victor because I am a winner, and so are all of you Zari supporters,” she concluded.
Zari Hassan and Diamond Platnumz, an East African superstar couple, started dating in November, 2014 after Diamond broke up with Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu over claims that Wema couldn’t bear him children.
Diamond – in a previous interview – said she loved Zari because “of all the women she dated, only Zari agreed to give him children”.
Zari is the ex-wife of the late Ugandan tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga, who died in May, 2017 after suffering a stroke. Zari met Diamond after dumping Ivan over claims of physical abuse.
The ex-couple had three sons together.
