Tanzanian Bongo singer Diamond Platnumz’s mother Sandrah has aired her opinion on photos of Zari and Ommy Dimpoz that caused uproar on social media with netizens believing that the two could be in a romantic relationship.
Speaking to a Tanzanian daily, Diamond’s mother said that she sees no problem when two people meet and even hug.
“Kwani kuna ubaya gani? Hivyo ni vitu vya kawaida kwa mtu kukumbatiana na mtu aliyekutana naye. Mimi sijaona hiyo picha ambayo kamshika pajani lakini bado nasema hayo ni mambo ya kawaida tu. Ina maana Zari asiongee na watu?” she said.
She went on to set the record straight, saying that Diamond and Ommy are not enemies.
“Watu wanasema Nasibu na Ommy wana ugomvi, mimi sijaona wakipigana, najua wanaongea na wala mimi sina ugomvi na mtu,” she added.
The photo in question was taken during a house party that went down in South Africa.
In a series of posts she shared on her Snapchat, the mother of five said she was still single because she was scared of getting hurt for the same reasons.
“Not scared to try again, just scared to get hurt with the same reasons,” wrote Zari Hassan.
