Zari to name her unborn child Riaz


You can call them the Jay Z and Beyonce of East Africa and we can fairly justify this statement because they are both artistes, although Zari’s music career collapsed, so we can probably say they are our Kimye – for you lot who don’t know that stands for Kim+Kanye, where do you live?

Anyway by now East Africa knows our Ugandan girl Zari Hussein and her Tanzanian boo Diamond Platinumz are expecting their second child. We hear Tiffah Dangote, who is a year and some months old will have a brother to play with very soon.

An excited Zari in fact has started looking for a suitable name for their prince and what landed in our ears is that the new baby will be named Riaz. After a glamorous white-themed baby shower party held recently, Zari announced on Tiffah’s Instagram page with the post: “About to welcome baby brother, Prince Riaz.”

This is going to be Diamond’s first son but second child with Zari who on the other hand has three sons from her past relationship with Ivan Ssemwanga. Diamond must be over the moon, seeing that during an interview on E! VIP he said his wish was to have a baby boy. All the best to you Zari!
