Tanzaniaâ€™s heavy-hitter Diamond Platnumz is the biological father of Latifah Dangote, DNA tests conducted on Diamond, Zari Hassan and Latifah have confirmed.Â An insider who is very close with the Utanipenda star shared exclusive details of what transpired in South Africa.â€œDiamond and his family (Zari and Tifah) recently traveled to South Africa to conduct DNA test on baby Tifah,â€ said the source.
â€œHe (Diamond) was bothered and disturbed by the constant persecution by fans who wanted a DNA test on baby Tifah. He was confused; he was in a dilemma. In a bid to clear the paternity issue, he asked Zari to accompany him to South Africa so that they could conduct DNA test on the baby before he leaves for the United States,â€ revealed the source.â€œThe DNA tests confirmed Nasib Abdul Juma (Diamond Platnumz) to be the biological father of Latifah Dangote. Diamond shed a lot of tearsâ€¦It hurt him the more when some quotas referred to Ivan Ssemwanga (Zariâ€™s ex-husband) as the little oneâ€™s father. Others claimed that Tifah was sired by a Tanzanian tycoon. A lot was said,â€ added the source.
â€œPeople talked a lot, created a lot of lies. I was not worried nonetheless. All through I knew the baby is mine; though just to make myself happier and more peaceful, I decided to conduct a DNA test on Tifah,â€ said Diamond.
â€œTifah is my daughter, completely! I am extremely overjoyed by the results (DNA). Thatâ€™s why I am now freer, happier and having a good time. When you happen to visit my office, you will notice I have hung framed photos of Tifah everywhere. I am not worried at all. I can now courageously face my critics,â€ affirmed Diamond Platnumz.
The Tanzanian top act also responded to why he shed tears.â€œIt (crying) is not an issue. What did you expect me to do after getting results that I dearly needed, especially at a time when sections of the society constantly claimed that I wasnâ€™t my daughterâ€™s biological father?â€Â Diamond says he embraced DNA testing of his child â€“ a practice that he says is not popular among Tanzanians â€“ because he wanted to be a hundred percent sure of his status as a father.
Diamond Platnumz and Zari Hassan welcomed Baby Latifah Dangote in August 6, 2015.
