Zari accuses Diamond of neglecting children as he plans to pay rent for 500 families

South African-based Ugandan businesswoman Zari Hassan on April 26 shamed her ex Diamond Platnumz after making public his initiative to provide shelter for 500 families during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a viral post, Zari accused Diamond of not knowing what his kids eat or how they get medical care as he does not financially provide for them.

“But you don’t know what your kids eat, or how they sleep if fees and medical insurance is paid. You will never please the world when your own are not happy and taken care of. You are selling a lie. Some people have become clowns to some of us,” Zari Hassan.

Not long after, Diamond acknowledged seeing Zari’s post and explained that he had reached out to her and tabled their differences.
