A Kenyan woman has sensationally claimed that Tanzanian crooner Diamond Platinumz is the father of her seven-month-old daughter.
In an interview with online a gossip magazine, Shilawadu, the woman, only identified as Gladys, says she met Diamond and became friends in 2011 in while he was in Eldoret for a concert.
“Tulikutana mwaka 2011 alikuwa rafiki yangu. Kwanza alikuwa rafiki yangu tuu wa kimawazo, na hatukuwa fikiria tutakuja kufanya tendo la ndoa,” says Gladys who sits through the interview trying to calm a fussy baby.
She says their relationship grew through social media where they used to chat all the time while the musician was in Tanzania and she in Kenya.
Three years into the friendship, she says, their friendship became a romantic one.
There however seems to be inconsistencies in the woman’s narrative regarding her actual age.
In the interview, she says was 37 years old in 2011 when she met Diamond, but when asked how old she is now she says she is 39. She later corrects herself saying she is 43 years old.
Interviewer: Kipindi hichi wewe uko na umri gani?
Gladys: Nilikuwa na 37
Interviewer: Kwa hivyo sahizi uko na forty what…?
Gladys: Saa hii niko miaka thalathini na tisa.
Interviewer: Mbona hesabu yako haijakaa sawa dada. 2011 hadi 2017 inamaanisha uko na miaka 43 yaani wewe ni mkubwa kuliko hata Zari.
Gladys further adds that after getting intimate with Diamond the singer gave her Sh50, 000, but their relationship broke down after she conceived. She further claims Diamond was not happy with her pregnancy.
The woman claims she even travelled all the way to Tandale to see Diamond’s mother to explain the situation to her.
“Nilichukuwa basi kutoka nairobi hadi Tandale, na nilipata kuelekezwa na rich Mavoko. Nilipofika huko vijana wakanielekeza kwa studio yao, kasha nikatumwa polisi. Askari wakanipea uwezo wa kufika kwa mlango wake. Nikapata mamake lakini hakutaka kunisikiza,” she said.
