Tanzanian music star, Diamond Platnumz has been dragged into a paternity scandal.
The singer last month welcomed his first child, Tiffah with girlfriend Zari Hassan.
Zari Hassan was previously married to South African based billionaire Ivan Ssemwanga who she left for the singer after three children.
The cousin of Ivan, King Lawrence has now filed lawsuit saying the baby girl does not belong to Diamond.
In a letter to Zari from his lawyers Web Advocates & Solicitors, he wants the Ugandan socialite to take three DNA tests to determine who is the father of the child.
“It has come to our client’s attention that you (Zari) have unilaterally decided to offer the paternity of the infant (Tiffah) to one Nasibu Abdul Juma, alias Diamond Platnumz, without considering his (King) strong interests or in fact a real possibility that the child could be his.
“You have also denied him the slightest access to the child,” reads the letter.
The letter from the lawyers also adds: “We therefore write to officially request your cooperation in this matter so that our client’s fears that a child that could actually be his is not nurtured, groomed and raised by another man with a completely different culture. Our client needs to put this to rest, in any event.”
King and his solicitors want the DNA tests to be done in Uganda, South Africa and in the USA so that “our client is either confirmed or completely excluded from being the infant’s biological father. King undertakes to meet all associated costs involved in this process.”
