Tanzanian power couple Diamond Platnumz and Zarina Hassan did not tie the knot. A video went viral that suggested that the two were making things official. What fuelled the rumours was a photo and video of Zari’s green ruby engagement ring that she flaunted.
Diamond later posted Zari’s hand with the ring as Nyashisnki’s love song Malaika played in the background.
Well, it turns out that they were celebrating the ‘Dua’ of Zari’s late mother.
In Islam, when 40 days pass after the death of a loved one, the family members host a traditional memorial service, where family gathers, ceremonies and rituals are performed in memory of the departed.
“Thanking everyone who made it for my mom’s 40 day dua since she passed. May she continue resting in peace….”
Zari and Diamond are now yet to officially wed and are expected to take the bold step in the course of this year. Zari said in a radio interview that her wedding with the singer will be one of the biggest ever experienced in East Africa.
Here are photos of how it went down:
