The union between Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz and wealthy Ugandan socialite, Zari Hassan, is increasingly getting trashed by her ex-husband’s relative, King Lawrence.

Lawrence, who is a cousin of Zari’s ex-husband Ivan Ssemwanga, claims Diamond is not Princess Tiffah’s biological father.

He took to his official Instagram to allege that his cousin, Ivan, is the man who sired Zari’s newborn daughter. He posted a photo with Ivan Ssemwanga, King captioned it: “chilling out with Princess Tiffah’s father.”


The statement did not go well with many fans who asked Lawrence to stay away from Diamond and Zari.

Jane Mbesu: Diamond’s daughter has more followers than you on Instagram. Can’t you question yourself – why it is so?

Awlate: Why so much drama from you guys? Can’t Ivan get a woman? You are acting so low. Get a life; Zari has chosen another life. You guys (King and Ivan) do the same!

Alicia Genius: King Lawrence you are wasting your time talking ill of Diamond. You should concentrate on your life. I think Diamond has quite often shown his maturity by not responding to your attacks.

Living ‘proof’

In yet another photo King posted on the same social media platform, he merged a baby’s picture (speculated to be Tiffah’s) with Ivan Ssemwanga’s and captioned it: “No DNA needed. The best revenge has shown itself after nine months.”

Some social media users quickly brushed off the image saying that the validity of the picture should be questioned since neither Diamond nor Zari has shared a picture showing the face of their daughter.

Consequently, Zari took to her official Instagram page to voice her reason for not sharing pictures of little Tiffah’s face.


Diamond seemed unmoved by King’s attacks, and chose to continue being positive about his relationship and daughter.

“Thank you God for continuing to bless my union. Thank you too for the peace and happiness you have granted us,” wrote Diamond.

The post was accompanied by a photo of Diamond, his mother, baby Tiffah and Zari in the kitchen.

This is not the first time King Lawrence has attacked the celebrity couple.

Early 2015, he took to social media and hit out at Diamond calling him Zari’s ‘toy boy’.
