Here is a list of celebrities who’ve been subjected to DNA tests to ascertain their paternity in recent times.

Kabi consistently denied being Abby’s father and instead insisted the eight-year-old was his niece.
Kabi who’d been accused of being a deadbeat father was eventually compelled to undergo a DNA test that confirmed him to be Abby’s father. With nowhere to hide his face, he did the sane thing and took full responsibility for his actions while apologizing and promising to take care of the girl he’d neglected for years.

Hamo is said to be the one who requested the paternity tests following Jemutai’s expose’ that he had stopped supporting the two children.

Bahati sired the child with ex-girlfriend Yvette Obura. Bahati made the confession after reports emerged weeks after his wife Diana welcomed their first child named Heaven claiming he has secretly carried out a DNA test on the baby without his wife’s knowledge.
Obura had earlier on blasted Bahati for dumping her when she was pregnant with the baby claiming that the singer had initially denied he was responsible for the pregnancy.
4. Diamond Platnumz – Tanzanian socialite Hamisa Mobetto recently opened up the lead on a cheating affair she had with singer Diamond, whose real name is Naseeb Juma, at the time he was dating South African socialite Zari Hassan, the mother to his two children. In an interview with Wasafi TV, Hamisa revealed that she had three miscarriages with all the pregnancies resulting from an affair with Diamond.

When Diamond got hold of the news, he requested for a DNA test to be conducted on the child via a text he sent to her which read, “I know it’s not right but I would like us to have a DNA test.” The paternity test turned out positive.
5, Harmonize – The former Wasafi signee’s paternity drama was rather interesting. News that his four year marriage to Italian wife Sarah Michelotti had come to an end, emerged after he confessed to have sired a daughter in 2019 with another woman.
However, Sarah hit back calling out Harmonize for misleading his fans with wrong information. Sarah claimed the reason why he walked out of the marriage was that she was tired of dating a serial cheat.
Sarah went on to add that the daughter Harmonize was claiming to be the father isn’t his as they had two DNA tests conducted in South Africa which turned out negative. To support his claims Sarah shared the two DNA results. But even then, Harmonize continues to pride himself as the father of the little girl.
