A group of Ugandan celebrities were star struck at meeting Diamond Platinumz, Zari’s Tanzanian lover during her mother’s vigil. Jose Chameleon and Jack Pemba chose to utilize that moment to the maximum
The Tanzanian hit maker jetted into Kampala silently with his mother to console his better half, Zari who lost her mum just a few weeks after she lost her former lover, the late Ivan Ssemwanga.
With what brought him to Uganda, vigil, Diamond was generous taking photos with Zari and those close, an opportunity Chameleon and Jack Pemba could not let slip easily away. With Chameleon next to Zari, Jack Pemba made sure he fixed himself strategically in between Zari and Diamond, getting involved in photos aimed at Diamond.
As if to seek relevance from Diamond, Pemba switches to speak in Kiswahili, to bridge any gap that could have been caused by language barrier or its fluency, as Diamond prefers his Kiswahili to English.
Whether those photos will be placed on their walls of fame or walls of sadness, we can’t easily tell
Zari’s family announced the demise of their mother, Halima Matovu Hassan yesterday (Thursday) and she will be laid to rest today ( Friday).
