The good, the bad and the ugly.
A relationship which met a crashing end on the day of love, 14th February 2018.
Today we look at a timeline of this roller-coaster relationship, the good, the bad and the ugly.
As they say, it goes down in the DM and Zari and Diamond’s first encounter was in the Twitter DM when Zari approached him to invite him to her all-white party. Diamond then told her to speak to his manager.
She spoke to his manager who in turn spoke to Diamond and his interest peaked when his manager informed him that Zari was not just any groupie in his DM. She was a clebrity in her own right. This was at a point when Zari was a hot topic on the tabloids after her highly-publicized break up with Ivan Ssemwanga.
The two later met on a flight, exchanged numbers and kicked off a steamy romance. “We decided to date after a couple of weeks, we couldn’t stop calling each other, the chemistry was amazing.” Zari disclosed on Sanyu FM.
Dee and Zee later went public with their relationship but were met with severe backlash as Wema and Diamond were dating at that time. The announcement that they were together was not only shocking to Tanzanians but also to Wema who learned that they had broken up after Diamond ghosted her then resurfaced with Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan.
Amidst the #TeamWema vs #TeamZari drama, Zari and Diamond announced that they were expecting their firstborn together.
Baby Tiffah is born on August 6 2015 at 4:40 am.
About a year later Zari announces that she is pregnant with son Nillan and guys really b**ched about it claiming that it was too soon for a second born.
Diamond then responded that they had decided to have kids early so that they could enjoy life and watch their kids grow.
“Natarajia Mama Tiffah anipatie tena mtoto mwingine, atakuwa wa kiume.Na itakuwa mwezi Disemba mwaka huu! Baada ya hapo sitaongeza tena mtoto mwingine, ni muda wa kula bata sasa ndio unafata na watoto wetu wawili.” He told Leo Tena.
Nillan is born on 6th December 2016 at Netcare Peretoria East Hospital.
About a month after Nillan's birth, rumours of Hamisa’s affair with Diamond begin to surface. Rumours which were proven true by a rant Zari posted on Snapchat. “Heard you still coming to my house fu**ing in my bed after you left your 50 cent earrings. How the hell do you keep f**king a man who clearly denies you in public? It clearly shows you’re just another trash to him if he can fuck and deny you. Where does that leave you as a woman unless if you are a typical cheap thirsty wh*re?” Zari ranted.
Ivan Ssemwanga dies and Diamond skips the funeral. 7 weeks later Zari’s mum passes away and Zari flies to Uganda for the burial.
Photos of Zari and a mysterious man soaking up in a the Jacuzzi surface on the internet and Diamond explodes with rage.
Diamond shares the photo of Zari in the Jacuzzi with the man and recklessly captions it “Ndiomaana wakati mwingine naonaga bora tu nile na kusepa.... maana hawathaminikagi wala kuaminika hawa.....” (Translation-That is why I think it’s better to smash and leave because women like this cannot be trusted.)
Which was a wrong move as Zari was innocent a the pics came from a spa session with Zari’s Ugandan friends and her son.
Hamisa announces her pregnancy and a few months later photos of her with Diamond in ZARI’S bed leak. A leak that Zari referred to as ‘betrayal at its best’
“It was betrayal at its best. I have made peace with it now so I can now talk about it and not feel anything. It was the worst betrayal because people cheat but why are you cheating on my bed, with some lowlife thing? Why are you not wearing a condom when we have kids and you can catch HIV? I had like 20 million questions. Why our bed?” Zari asked during an interview on Sanyu FM.
Caught pants down, Diamond is then forced to admit to Hamisa’s pregnancy in a widely televised interview with Clouds FM in October 2017.
Zari later issues this statement after the news “Ladies and gentlemen I've heard you loud and clear, the advises the consolation, the pity, the hurt you feeling on my behalf most of all the betrayal. But let's look at this on the positive side. When a person chooses to cheat on you it's not YOU actually its THEM which usually turns out that they played themselves while they thought they are playing you.”
In December 2017, Zari and Diamond get back together after intervention from friends, fans and politicians and come to Kenya for Diamond’s 6.6m million Naivasha concert.
As soon as Zari and Diamond patched things up, rumours of ladies visiting Diamond’s Madale house surface on social media. There is also a rumour that Tanzanian socialite Tunda Sebastian is pregnant with Diamond’s kid, rumours which they both deny.
The Chibu’s had barely recovered from the Tunda Sebastian drama when yet another lady by the name Mia claimed that she had spent the night with Diamond.
Following all the drama with the ladies, Diamond announces that he is not spending Valentine’s with Zari or any of his women.
Zari announces their break up with a post that read “There have been multiple rumours some with evidence floating around in ALL SORTS of media in regards to Diamond’s constant cheating and sadly I have decided to end my relationship with Diamond, as my RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DIGNITY & WELL BEING cannot be compromised. We are separating as partners but not as parents.”
