Ironic to its what is known for, February 14 will now also be remembered as the day Diamond Platnumz, Tanzanian artiste, and Zari Hassan, his wife, parted ways.
Hassan was formerly married to Ivan Semwanga, now deceased Ugandan tycoon, whom she had three children with.
In a post on her Instagram page, she said they were only separating as partners and not as parents.
“Understand that this is very difficult for me to do. There have been multiple rumors 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,” she wrote.
“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. 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.”
The duo met on a flight in 2014. Hassan asked for a picture with the singer and a few months later, she divorced her husband and relocated to Tanzania to be with the singer.
