Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platnumz has emotionally recounted a promise he made to his mother, Mama Dangote when they were struggling financially before his career in music picked up.

Diamond poured his heart out in a lengthy post to celebrate his mother’s 55th birthday, reflecting on the days when his mother struggled as a hairdresser in Dares Salaam.

“Mwaka Mmoja wakati unafanya kazi ya Saloon kariakoo, tukiwa tunarudi usiku majira kama ya saa sita hivi kwenye Daladala nikakwambia “Usijali mama Kuna siku nitatoboa kwenye mziki na nitakufungulia na wewe Saloon yako”...Vyote naweza visahau lakini maneno haya siwezi yasahau,” Diamond wrote.

He added that he made the promise in deep pain after watching his mother hustle past midnight just to make ends meet.

"Best yangu wa ukweli 💙 Naseeb kichwa @diamondplatnumz 🦁 Hakimi," mama Dangote wrote.

The Bongo star responded acknowledging his mother’s post in the affirmative without delving into the details.

"HAKIMI NA MAMA HAKIMI." Esma wrote.

The comments came at a time when Moroccan star Achraf Hakimi was reported to have registered his vast wealth under his mother’s name, leaving his wife with close to nothing as their divorce unfolded.

Mama Dangote and Esma appeared to suggest that just as the Moroccan star was reported to have done, Diamond may have also done the same.
