Abdul Jumaa, the father of Tanzania hitmaker Diamond Platnumz, has made yet another plea in a bid to reconnect with the singer.
Speaking to Showbiz Xtra, Jumaa pleaded with the artiste to invite him to his forthcoming wedding slated for early next year. According to Abdul, should Diamond refuse to send him an invite, he would feel despised.
“Namuomba sana asiache kunialika, asiponialika nitaona amenidharau sana, nitajisikia vibaya”
(I urge him[Diamond] not to ignore me on his wedding day, if he does not invite me I will feel despised)
Abdul further disclosed that Diamond did not inform about the wedding as he learnt about from the village grapevine.
“Sijaambiwa habari za ndoa ila nasikia tu watu mitaani wanazungumzia suala hilo, kikubwa naomba iwe ya heri Mungu afanikishe nitafurahi sana mwanangu akioa
(I have not been informed about it but I’ve heard people talking about it in the streets. But I pray that God makes it successful. I will be happy if my son marries)
Diamond has since set the wedding date to his Kenyan girlfriend Tanasha Donna Barbieri Oketch on Valentine’s day.
“I have set February 14, 2019, as my wedding date. The ceremony will last four days. Valentine’s Day will fall on a Thursday; so, the wedding ceremony will take place on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That is my preliminary arrangement. If anything would come up, forcing me to change the dates, I will communicate that in good time,” he said.
