Bongo Flava star Diamond Platnumz has once again been accused of being a deadbeat dad, this time by a Kenyan woman.
The woman, identified as Gladys Butoto, alleges that she and the Tanzanian hitmaker are parents of a daughter aged one-and-a-half years.
Speaking outside the Oysterbay police post in Dar es Salaam, Butoto claimed that she has been reaching out to Diamond to help, but the hitmaker would only issue fake promises.
According to Gladys, Diamond had previously accepted to conduct a DNA test but failed to show up on the material day.
She has now resolved to take the matter to Court and is said to have camped outside the Oyster bay police station.
“Mimi nisingefikia hatua hii kabisa, lakini nimeona Diamond ni mtu ambaye ananidharau na wakati ukweli anaujua, maana tungezungumza na tukakubaliana kuhusu matunzo ya huyu mtoto wala nisingekuwa na matatizo yoyote yale,” Gladys told Tanzanian newspaper, Uwazi.
“Mwanangu anaumwa lakini nimekuja naye hivyohivyo ili nijue hatma yangu na pia twende mbele ya sheria maana hata mama yake alishawahi kusema mimi ni chizi lakini siwezi kumsingizia mwanaye hata kidogo kuhusu hilo,” added Gladys as she showed her court papers against Diamond.
The mention will take place on Wednesday, June 20.
