From foreign trips to expensive gifts and now a tattoo, Tanzanian Bongo Flava star Naseeb Abdul Juma alias Diamond Platinumz is not shy in sharing with the world the love he has for his mother Sanura Kasimu aka Mama Dangote.
On Wednesday, March 25, Platnumz shared photos on his Instagram showing off a tattoo that he had received bearing one his mother's endearing aliases, Sandra.
Even though the tattoo has been there for over three years now, the Tanzanian crooner has never flaunted it as he did, a move that saw Mama Dangote share the same photos on her Instagram page, saying that the tattoo was a priceless gift.
“Chakudeka mtoto wa mama Alhamdulillaah. Asante kwa zawadi hii @diamondplatnumz,” she captioned.
That is not all. The Jeje hitmaker a week ago came out to encourage his mother to live life to the fullest, noting that she went through a lot of challenges raising him and underscored that she deserves to be happy.
“Kula Maisha mamaangu, Umepata tabu sana kunilea hadi leo kufika hapa...furaha yangu ni kuona unafurahi,” read Platnumz's post.
Known amongst the singer’s inner circle to be a great pillar in the crooner’s life, Mama Dangote’s support, according to Platnumz, propelled his music career.
On international women's day, he acknowledged her as one of the special women in his life who contributed immensely to his success and pushed him to be a better person.
“Happy international Women's Day ya leo naidedicate kwa hawa super women wangu....Wanaake ambao wana mchango wa kipekee kwenye maisha yangu...wao walinifanya nikafanya kazi kwa bidii, nikapatia, nikakosea, nikafurahi, nikalia, nikaonekana mzuri na wakati mwingine mbaya...lakini mwisho wa siku yote ilikuwa ni safari yangu niloandikiwa duniani ili inifanye kuwa mimi niitwae Diamond Platnumz leo...
“Kila Mwanadamu ana Mazuri na Mapungufu yake, jifunze kukubaliana na hilo na uthamni kila aliyegusa maisha yako kwani hakuja tu kwa hahati mbaya ni iliandikwa na Mwenyez Mungu ili ikufikishe ulipo.... Mchango wa hawa ni mkubwa na ndiomaana upendo na thamani yao kwangu itabaki milele moyoni,” he wrote.
The bond is strong that in 2017, while on his European tour dubbed From Tandale to the World, he revealed that he intentionally asked his mother to accompany him since she had never in her life travelled to that side of the world.
“All this time, my mother has not been able to travel to Europe or abroad in that matter but has religiously been listening to my music at home,” he said.
His relationship with his father Abdul Juma has over the years rested on shaky ground, compounded by his absence after he separated with Mama Dangote.
“I have realized Diamond is not on the wrong. I am the one who slipped. I already made peace with his mum. I thereafter saw it wise to look for Diamond and ask for his forgiveness,” said Juma when he finally met Platnumz after years of seeking the singer’s ear on being diagnosed with skin cancer.
