Diamond Platnumz opens up after Zari calls him a clown

 

Diamond, Zari and their children in their happy times

Bongo Flava star Diamond Platnumz said on Monday, 27 April 2020 that he called his ex-lover, Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan, and discussed how they would take care of their two children.

This was after Zari’s message in which she called him a clown and said he was lying to the world after Diamond pledged to pay three months’ rent for 500 families in Tanzania that are struggling to make ends meet due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I pretty much know that at these terrible times where we are all fighting global pandemic COVID-19, countless life circumstances have changed especially in businesses, many businesses are drowning hence rendering to financial difficulties and life becoming a little bit  tough to many of us. Although I am amongst those affected by this pandemic, with the little that God has blessed me with, I have decided to at least offer a helping hand by paying 3 Months house rent to 500 families as my kind gesture of helping one another during these terrible times of fighting COVID-19 for I believe I should share your troubles and your happiness too,” he wrote on his Instagram page. 

He promised to issue a detailed explanation of how the money would be dished out on Monday (today).

That gesture, however, didn’t go down well with Zari who said there was no way the singer could start helping the public yet he has failed to take care of his children.

“…but you don’t know what your kids eat or how they sleep if fees and medical insurance is paid. You will never please the world when your own are not happy and taken care of. You are selling a lie. Some people have become clowns to some of us,” Zari wrote on her Instastories.

 

Speaking on Wasafi Good Morning program on Monday, Diamond said it is normal for people who have been engaged in relationships to squabble after separation especially if you have kids.

“It is mostly tough for women who are left with kids after separation, I saw her post and for quite a good part of the period of our differences we have been talking through our lawyers but after reading her message, I sent her a text,” Diamond told the hosts of the program.

In the text, Diamond says that he told Zari that being the mother of his kids, they must always strive to maintain respect for each other.

“I told her that we should strive to avoid fights especially through social media platforms,” he explains adding: “We had very fruitful discussions and for the first time we held a one on one discussion.”

He said the discussion helped him drop the temptation of responding to Zari’s message with rage.

“Before speaking to her, I had prepared a ‘strong response’ but just as I was about to send it, I held discussions with my management and they advised me not to react,” Diamond further explained.

Unsatisfied with the advice to remain quiet, he decided to talk to Zari directly. “During the discussion, she told me her side of the story and I responded accordingly with mine. I told her that I feel she was punishing me through the kids which she said she didn’t habour such intentions and we later realized there has been a miscommunication between our lawyers,” he said.

According to Diamond, the two have reached an amicable solution. “I thank God that things went well and fingers crossed after this pandemic, the issue regarding our kids’ wellbeing will have reached an advanced stage,” he says.
