Zari Hassan, the partner of top Tanzanian artiste Diamond Platnumz, is pregnant, reports Risasi Newspaper.
Zari got pregnant by Diamond Platnumz barely nine months after the pair welcomed their first baby together Latiffah Dangote.
Zari’s pregnancy will “silence her haters”, and that is what the businesswoman aimed at, says the outlet.
A well-placed source within Diamond’s Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) Records stable told Risasi that Zari’s pregnancy has been confirmed.
“Zari is pregnant by Diamond for the second time. However, Diamond Platnumz is not happy because his first child Latiffah Dangote has not even turned one yet. That is the main reason why the couple was some time back reported to be at loggerheads,” said the source.
“Zari’s pregnancy is four months old.”
The insider says both Zari Hassan and Diamond Platnumz’s family have held several meetings to solve the dispute that the unborn baby has allegedly brought between the pair.
The source further claims that Diamond Platnumz’s many visits to South Africa were motivated by the desire to iron out differences with Zari regarding the unborn baby.
“Diamond fears the society will judge him harshly,” said the source.
“Even some members of his family are shocked by the news of Zari’s pregnancy. They wonder, with the many methods of contraception, why they didn’t opt to protect themselves against unwanted pregnancy. It has really caused tension in the family,” divulged the insider.
One of Diamond’s close relatives who sought anonymity confirmed that Zari Hassan is indeed pregnant.
“Yes, Zari is pregnant. And the pregnancy is likely to bring embarrassment to the family because according to our culture it is quite a shame to get a woman pregnant when your first baby hasn’t turned one,” said the relative.
Diamond Platnumz told Risasi in however much he adores children and would want many more, Zari’s second pregnancy by him came as a shocker.
“I don’t know what to say. However, you should know that I love children and I would want to get more. I am financially capable of taking care of many children, but Zari’s pregnancy has come very early,” said Diamond.
Diamond Platnumz and Zari Hassan welcomed their first baby together Latiffah Dangote in August 6, 2015.
