Diamond speaks on meeting Zari's husband Shakib

Tanzanian musician Diamond Platnumz, who is currently in the country for Oktobafest, on Friday spoke on his meet-up with Zari Hassan's husband Shakib Lutaaya.

Simba said it was important for them to get along and ensure there was no negative energy.

"We have to show the positive side of everything and we do not want to handle this matter in an old-fashioned way.

"As sons of East Africa, it is important to spread love and positivity. This is the best way to handle this," he said.

A fortnight ago, Zari had shared a photo of Diamond and Shakib holding Tiffah and Nillan at the airport, and this week she said the Bongo star requested to meet her husband.

Zari said Diamond was interested in meeting the man who spends a lot of time with his children, later lauding how they (Diamond and Shakib) handled the matter in a mature way.

"I think, it is us the women who like the push and pull, but for the two men, they were very cool about it.

"He [Diamond] acknowledged that he is no longer in the children's lives and said he was happy that [Shakib] was a kind and cool guy. Right now they are good friends," she added.

While speaking to journalists minutes after landing in Kenya, Diamond expressed desire to be present in the lives of all his children and spend time with them whenever he can.

He also spoke of his son Naseeb Junior saying he is enjoying the privilege of being the lastborn.

"No matter how busy one can be, it is essential to dedicate some family time. I always set aside time to see my children.

"It is not always about money, fame and property. With time they will depreciate but your children will always be there," he said.
