Queen Darleen, the half-sister of Tanzanian heartthrob Diamond Platnumz, says her award-winning brother has no plans of marrying Tanasha Oketch his Kenyan baby mama soon because he is not yet ready for marriage.
In a recent interview with Tanzania’s Global publishers Queen Darlin said that Diamond fears losing his female fans if he marries anytime soon.
Darleen further revealed that her brother is scared he wouldn’t do certain things if he were to settle down because “now is not the right time for that.
“Sisi hujadiliana sana kuhusu maswala ya ndoa, Mondi ni mtu anayehofia sana kujiingiza kwenye ndoa. Anataka ajiandae ipasavyo kabla ya kuamua kufunga pingu za maisha,” said Queen Darlin.
However, the 34-year-old revealed that if her celebrity brother should wed she would want him to get married to many wives.
“Diamond fears locking himself up in a marital cage. He says he wants to settle down when he is ready, and I don’t think he is currently up for it.”
Her remarks echoes that of Dar es Salaam regional commissioner, Paul Makonda, who recently urged Diamond to shun marriage as he risks losing his females fan base.
“When you are a male artiste whose fans largely comprise women, then know that if you marry, all the women who adore you will lose interest in you and your music. Sometimes it leaves you wondering whether it was even possible to marry all of them,” said Makonda.
Diamond and Tanasha started dating last year in November, seven months after the Inama hitmaker was ditched by his Ugandan wife, Zari Hassan.
Diamond and Tanasha who had recently planned their wedding canceled the ceremony due to, “planning reasons,” alleging that they needed more time to plan a flamboyant ceremony that would attract the likes of American rapper Rick Ross.
The couple shares a son.
