Celebrities will always do anything for publicity and to stay relevant on the social scene. The latest that is trending around East Africa is a claim that Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan and Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz’s relationship is on the verge of a breaking up.
On the 6th of June, Diamond posted a picture of himself looking sad and captioned it “I am single again” on one of his Facebook pages called Wcb Wasafi/ Diamond Platnumz yet we clearly knew Zari had not dumped him, a thing that has since seemed like a publicity stunt for Diamond in Uganda.
Well, their exchanges continued on Monday this week, when Zari posted a photo on Instagram of her and a man who was allegedly holding her behind in a swimming pool. Shortly after, Diamond Platnumz responded when he took to his Instagram too where he posted the same photo of Zari with the man and captioned it with words that showed his dissatisfaction.
“The reason why sometimes I prefer being a player than a committed loyal man.” Diamond wrote in English before adding and saying, “Ndiomaana wakati mwingine naonaga bora tu nile na kusepa…. maana hawathaminikagi wala kuaminika hawa” Swahili for ‘No matter how you care for women they take u for granted so for me what i do is hit and run.’
In retaliation, Zari who claimed that the man he was seen in a swimming pool with is her former husband late Ivan Semwanga’s cousin, added another Instagram post firing back at the ‘Number One’ singer
“Photo credit was by his wife. He is my kids’ uncle, the late’s cousin and I happened to meet them at a spa. When you are that IT loyal gal, someone will always find fault when it’s not there just to cover and turn around stories of all the dirty they do behind you back.”
