Diamond Platnumz's baby mama Zari Hassan from Uganda was formerly dating billionaire South-African based tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga before she left him for the singer. While she was pregnant there were reports that the child was for Ivan and not Diamond Platnumz.
Barely three weeks after the birth of his daughter, Tiffah, there are claims in Tanzania that the award winning singer Diamond Platnumz is not the father.
Diamond Platnumz's baby mama Zari Hassan from Uganda was formerly married to billionaire South-African based tycoon Ivan Ssemwanga before she left him for the singer. While she was pregnant there were reports that the child was for Ivan and not Diamond Platnumz.
Now, the story has developed a whole new angle. Ivan's brother King Lawrence is now claiming that he is the father of the child. In a letter to Zari from his lawyers Web Advocates & Solicitors, he wants the Ugandan socialite to take three DNA tests to determine who is the father of the child.
"It has come to our client’s attention that you (Zari) have unilaterally decided to offer the paternity of the infant (Tiffah) to one Nasibu Abdul Juma, alias Diamond Platnumz, without considering his (King) strong interests or in fact a real possibility that the child could be his.
“You have also denied him the slightest access to the child,” reads the letter.
The letter from the lawyers also adds: “We therefore write to officially request your cooperation in this matter so that our client’s fears that a child that could actually be his is not nurtured, groomed and raised by another man with a completely different culture. Our client needs to put this to rest, in any event.”
King and his solicitors want the DNA tests to be done in Uganda, South Africa and in the USA so that "our client is either confirmed or completely excluded from being the infant’s biological father. King undertakes to meet all associated costs involved in this process.”
It should be noted that King Lawrence started the unconfirmed reports that his brother was responsible for Zari's pregnancy and not Diamond Platnumz's.
Zari had three kids for Ivan Ssemwanga before their marriage broke up.
