Zari Hassan and Diamond Platinumz.
Socialite Zari Hassan’s lover and father of her two younger children, Diamond Platinumz could be flattering hullabaloo after admitting that he does not regret cheating on her with model Hamisa Mobeto.
Diamond, who acknowledged the affair after several months of denial, said the scandal has turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
In a 10-minute interview with BBC's Salim Kikeke, the Tanzanian-born musician said the affair was bound to happen and he did not regret it even though it almost cost him his relationship with the mother of his two children.

(I think everything that happens in life, happens to help you grow in future, and God has different ways of doing this. He can present you with a challenge to make you a better person so there is no need to panic, feel remorseful or sad)."
Diamond in September succumbed to pressure and addressed rumours that he sired a child with Tanzanian model Mobetto.
The singer also noted that he wanted to keep the matter as private as he could and thus extended financial support to Mobetto.
“When she got pregnant, I told her I was a father with a family. I did not like abortion, it was my blood,” the singer said.
“Before she gave birth, I bought her a new Toyota Rav 4” the ‘Eneka’ hitmaker also said.
As to whether he supported the child, Diamond said “I was giving him a sum of $ 5 shillings a week.”
“When I was in Britain I asked my mother to go to the hospital to look at the baby, but the woman Hamisa called writers and went to record and disgrace my mother” the irked singer said.
“When I returned from England I went to see my son and stayed with him very much” he said.
“There was no time at all that I created a scenario for rejecting a child. I’m surprised to see on the networks say I have rejected the child. What I did not want was to make sure my wife Zari was not supposed to be guilty of anything wrong” he added.
“Hamisa should have a good foundation for raising a child, the man’s burial did not help but it hurts you. I cannot get rid of Zari. I’m glad to walk down from here to Saudi so that you can forgive me” the singer pleaded.
On whether he and Hamisa have issues, Diamond said “I cannot hate Hamisa, but advise her this time to look at the future of the baby, since posting on the networks will not help.”
