The struggling lifestyle of Diamond Platnumz father Mzee Abdul Juma is quite shocking considering the level of his son’s achievement in the music industry.
Please forgive me - Mzee Abdul’s emotional appeal to his son Diamond (Video)
He had been accused of abandoning his family
In a recent Interview with Global TV, Mzee Abdul is asking his son to find a place in his heart to forgive him, so that people can stop judging him as bad person any time they see him on the streets.
According to Mzee Abdul, a lot of people tend to see him as a bad person basing on untrue stories they have read or heard on what led to the separation with his ex-wife (Bi Sandrah Dangote).
He explained that at the time he parted ways with Diamond’s mother, the Wasafi CEO was already a grown up (joining form one) who knew what was going on.
“Unajua sasa hivi mtu anavyonitizama anadhani kuwa mimi sasa ni mtu wakuendesha gari kubwa, lakini hamna mimi sasa ivi kanda mbili tu maisha yanaenda. Mimi kile kinachoniumiza ni kuwa kila nikitembea kuonyeshwa vidole kuwa yule alimkataa Nassibu, sasa mimi sometimes mtu anakuwa hajui jambo kuindani sasa hiyo huwa inaiumiza sana, lakini mimi nawaeleza tu wananchi kuwa yale yalikuwa ni matatizo ya kiundani ya familia na sio kama nilimkataa mtoto , na hata wakati tunaachana nao alikuwa mkubwa na anaelewa kila, kitu anajoin Form one. Na mtoto siku zote akikaaa na mama analishwa sumu na ndo chuki kama ilivyo sasa. Na unajua hata mtu akiniona anafikiria ndiga kubwa lakini maisha yalivyo," said Mzee Abdul.
Asked on the last time he saw his son, “Mara ya mwsiho nadhani ni wakati alikuwa bado anadate na wema, yani wakati huo alikuwa nakuja kila jioni kuniona na Wema lakini tangu kukosana kwao hajawai kuja tena.”
Mzee also narrated that despite his children being successful people in the society, they never bother to help him meet his daily needs.
“Sasa hivi hamna mtu anayenipa msaada kivile, labda tu kutokee jambo kama vile naumwa ndo labda watatoa msaada wao lakini kusema kuwa labda baada ya wiki au mwezi wanatuma kitu kidogo kuwa hichi cha baba hamna. Watoto hanipii ile huduma ka baba yao, na ni Imani kuwa walisema kuwa baba atabaki tu kuwa baba hamna msaada” added Mzee Abdul.
Mzee Abdul mentioned that he will appreciated if his kids reach a point of making peace with him and probably put up a business for him.
“Mimi kama mzazi nafsi yangu inaniuma sana , kuna watu ambao anawasaidi hata hawajui, na yeye kama niligombana na mama yake kwenye nasfi yake haijui inaweza ikawa neno la ukweli au uongo , lakini naomba mkitapata nafasi mmuhoji pia aseme ukweli, na kama kuna uwezekano anisaidie hamna mtu asiyemsamehe mtu, mwenyezi mungu vile vile anasamehe mtu aliyekosa na pia wananchi pia naomba wasinifikiria tofauti na vitu ambavyo si vya kweli” said Mzee Abdul.
Mzee Abdul is the father to Diamond and singer Queen Darleen.
