Tanzania government has ruled that Diamond Platnumz and Zari Hassan’s two children are indeed Tanzanians ending weeks of uncertainty over their nationalities.
The country’s minister in charge of immigration Ally Mtanda said that the two children are Tanzanians by birth though they posses South African citizenship. Zari Hassan holds both Ugandan and South African citizenship.
“Zari said all her kids are South African, she is right because she lives there. With that said, her children become South African automatically. However, the kids are also Tanzanians because their dad is Tanzanian. In short, they have dual citizenship because the law allows them to have two passports at the same time.” Said Ally.
The Kwangwaru hit maker has two, Tiffah Dangote and Nilan Dangote, children with the Ugandan socialite and business lady from a relationship that lasted over six years before collapsing spectacularly. Diamond has gone ahead date a number of women and recently his Kenyan girlfriend Tanasha has given birth to his seventh kid! Diamond has seven kids!!!
Zari accused Diamond of constant infidelity and decided to end the relationship and eventually moving down South to Mzansi. We recently wrote about Zari’s new catch and how she failed to introduce the young dude toher parents… she’s way older!
Ever since she relocated from Tanzania to South Africa, Zari has time and again publicly accused Diamond of neglecting his fatherly duties in the lives of their kids.In an interview early this year, the mother of five said that Diamond does not financially support their two children so she has to work twice as hard.
“Diamond has not visited nor talked to his children since the break-up. If he wants to support his children, he can do that but if he doesn’t want to it’s still okay. I can manage on my own,” she said
In his defence, Diamond explained in an interview on Wasafi TV, that his strained relationship with his baby mama has affected his relationship with his children.
“When I break up with someone for me I don’t dwell too much on it because I believe nothing lasts forever. So I accept and move on but it was not the same for my co-parent who portrayed herself differently on social media and behind closed doors,
“I did my duties as a father, I sent child support, not consistently I have to admit, but I tried my best. At some point I understood my co-parent would use the kids to punish me since we were no longer together,” he lamented.
