Zari, Diamond Platinumz get cozy at daughter's birthday party

Tanzanian recording artiste, Nasibu Abdul Juma Issack, alias Diamond Platnumz, and his ex-wife, Zari Hassan, used the party thrown for their daughter, Latifah Dangote, aka Tifah, to enjoy a light-hearted moment.

In a video seen by this reporter, Zari clad in a short wide dress is seen all smiles while dancing with Platinumz who holds the small of her back and flashes a toothy grin for the camera.

The party was held in South Africa and Tifah is now seven years old.

“Just the other day you had 5 strands of hair, look at you lil mama, Duchess of Tanzania. Happy birthday to my one and only baby girl 💕,” Zari posted about her daughter on Instagram.

Platinumz, who chartered a private jet, flew into South Africa with his mother, Mama Dangote, his step-dad Uncle Shamte, and his sisters Esma Khan and Queen Darleen.

Some of his employees under WCB Wasafi Record Label, Wasafi Bet and Wasafi Media were on the attendance list, too.

Despite breaking up, the couple has on multiple occasions praised each other, with Zari calling Platinumz the "best co-parent".

During the first season of Netflix reality TV series 'Young, Famous and African', even a blind person could tell they still have strong feelings for each other.

The Uganda-born socialite, 41, started dating the Tanzanian mogul, 32, after divorcing the late Ivan Ssemwanga and they have two kids together.

Diamond Platnumz is now said to be dating Tanzanian singer-songwriter Zuchu, 28, while Zari is with Shakib Lutaaya, who is about 20 years her junior.

Zari said Lutaaya scored huge by dating her when she was asked about the dynamic of their relationship in a recent media interview.

"He is the one who won big," she said, adding that "a lot is happening" after being pressed to comment on how the couple's future looks.

There are some people who have judged her for using Lutaaya as a toy boy and she didn't mince words while responding to what she dubbed as haters.

"Let them offer the one I deserve; if he's not my type, let them bring the type," she said, shrugging her shoulders.

"I'm just living my life... with my husband, we have no problem. We've no time for Facebook rumours."

According to Zari, people who hate her are in the lower echelons of society.
