Zari opens up on Diamond Platnumz split, explains why they broke up

Ugandan socialite and reality TV star Zarinah Hassan.

Zarinah Hassan, a Ugandan socialite now based in South  Africa called it quits on her marriage to musician Diamond Platnumz sometime in 2018.

Zari now claims that she tried everything she could to keep her marriage together before finally giving up.

Zari admitted that she knew Diamond had been unfaithful during the second episode of the new 'Young, Famous, and African' show, which premiered on March 18, 2022, but she decided to let things go for the "sake of peace."

“Even the times when I knew you messed up, I would just keep silent for the sake of peace, for us to be happy, let it go, let it slide, move on, keep going, keep your family...” said Zari.

Even after learning the truth, the reality star, who now lives in South Africa, said she would always defend Diamond's bad deeds, but Diamond did not do the same for her.

Zari claims their two kids together were also dragged online as the musician's wandering crotch became the talk of town. 

“You gave me away…Baba T you know I was here for you, like I would deny for you, I would take a bullet for you, but every time I did that for you, you did the opposite, me and your kids were being attacked, I had nowhere to hide,” she said.

Zari explained that she would finally let go of the four year marriage after she received proof of the singer's infidelity. 

“When these people start producing receipts of your behavior, what you did, and the receipts are in our faces, I pull out and say yes he did it…” she said.

The businesswoman, who is one of the wealthiest women in South Africa, was keen to admit that even though they are both equally happy, she is aware that she had ‘something good going’ with the Tanzanian singer.

“I moved on, I’m happy where I am and I’m sure he’s happy where he is but personally it’s something that keeps coming back, I had something good going and it got so messed up,” said Zari.

Ever since their break-up, the couple have been co-parenting their children, Tiffah Dangote and Prince Nillan.

The businesswoman had confirmed through a previous interview that they are doing a good job co-parenting together.

“We are doing a good job co-parenting our children (with Diamond),” Zari told NBS Television.
