Bongo Flava star Diamond Platnumz's biological father Abdul Jumaa has pleaded with the artist to invite him to his wedding early next year.

Speaking to Showbiz Xtra, Abdul said that if the singer fails to invite him to attend his special day, he would feel rejected and despised.

“Namuomba sana asiache kunialika, asiponialika nitaona amenidharau sana, nitajisikia vibaya (I call upon him not to ignore me on that day, because if he fails to invite me I will feel despised,’’ Abdul said.

He further revealed that he has not been informed by the Salome hitmaker of any impending marriage and he only got to know about it from the grapevine in the village.

“Sijaambiwa habari za ndoa ila nasikia tu watu mitaani wanazungumzia suala hilo, kikubwa naomba iwe ya heri Mungu afanikishe nitafurahi sana mwanangu akioa (I have not been informed about it but I’ve heard people talking about it in the villages. But I pray that God makes it successful. I will be happy if my son marries),” he said.

Diamond announced that he will walk down the aisle his Kenyan girlfriend Tanasha Donna Barbieri Oketch on Valentine's day.

“I have set February 14, 2019, as my wedding date. The ceremony will last four days. Valentine’s Day will fall on a Thursday; so, the wedding ceremony will take place on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That is my preliminary arrangement. If anything would come up, forcing me to change the dates, I will communicate that in good time,” he said.

The two have been spotted spending time together and made a first public appearance together on December when the star had jetted in to perform for Wasafi Festival at Thika Stadium.

Diamond has often ignored his father on important functions on claims that he abandoned him while he was still a kid. He was brought up by his mother.
