Renowned Tanzanian artist, Diamond Platnumz, has once again caused a stir in the entertainment world with his unorthodox views on relationships. During a recent press conference in Kampala, Uganda, the Bongo Flava star made headlines by hinting at his single status while emphasizing his entitlement to have multiple wives as a Muslim man.
Addressing journalists ahead of a charity comedy show, Diamond Platnumz candidly expressed, “I am a Muslim man entitled to four wives, but I don’t even have one right now. So, ladies, it’s up to you.” His remarks ignited a divided response from social media users and left many intrigued by his unconventional perspective.

As news of Diamond’s statement spread across various online platforms, social media erupted with a flurry of reactions. Some individuals interpreted his comments as a desire to explore relationships with numerous women, while others saw it as an opportunity for women to approach him. The artist’s enigmatic persona and penchant for controversy have only intensified the curiosity surrounding his love life.
Diamond Platnumz, a father of four, has had a history of high-profile relationships with multiple women, including Hamisa and Zari Hassan, resulting in much-publicized controversies and media scrutiny.
While his personal life often makes headlines, Diamond has also faced criticism for his alleged infidelity and lack of commitment.
In addition to his relationship revelations, Diamond recently made waves on social media with a viral video featuring a stunning video vixen, leading to speculation about his romantic involvement with her. However, the artist clarified that the video was part of a music shoot, dispelling any notions of a budding romance.
Moreover, Diamond Platnumz’s relationship with his former partner Zari Hassan has been a subject of interest for fans and followers. The artist addressed their co-parenting dynamics during the press conference, revealing that he and Zari maintain a respectful and professional relationship for the sake of their children. Diamond expressed his commitment to ensuring their kids’ well-being and emphasised that he does not want them to be burdened by the separation, as he personally experienced the stress of seeing his parents apart during his childhood.
Diamond’s comments about Zari and their children stirred further discussion about the status of their relationship.
“Me and her are just co-parenting and we respect each other. As you know everybody has a partner, so there’s nothing going on… I think we try to be more modern, urban but we don’t want to entertain negativity when it comes to our kids. We try to make it more professional. That’s why when you see our kids around us, they are more comfortable….We don’t want to stress our kids. Sometimes we don’t even want to show them, especially for me, I don’t even show my kids if I’m dating or something. They think I’m still dating their mother,” he said.
While Diamond expressed his love for Zari and his desire to make things work, Zari has remained cryptic on social media, hinting at lingering resentment towards the artist.
“I don’t want u, I’m not obsessed (with) u, matter of fact it’s the opp (you are obsessed with me, u can’t seem to replace me). U will come running like a cheetah if I called u back. I’m only reasonable for respect sake. For the sake of the kids.” wrote Zari
“U only hear from me when its kids fees that you pay annually (and I appreciate you for that.) Emotional support, medical, sleepless nights to mention a few is all one. Stop putting me situations with low life wh*res for clout. I’ve noticed u live for clout, without it, u can’t breathe…” read part of her post.
It remains to be seen whether their efforts to co-parent will lead to a reconciliation or if they will continue on separate paths.
