Whatever Diamond Platnumz is going through as an individual must already be hell for him. Now his worries have spread to his family with her sister Esma Khan in trouble with authorities over the sale of harmful cosmetic products. She was arrested and is set to appear before court.
Close friends and family to one of East Africa’s finest artistes, Diamond Platnumz must be sleeping with one eye open lately. With so much surrounding the singer’s life, it so seems like the people around him are being targeted by different authorities in Tanzania.
Babu Tale, Diamond’s manager was arrested at the start of the week for failing to pay a Shs 11 million debt. Esma Khan who is Diamond Platnumz’s elder sister was as well arrested by Tanzanian Food and Drugs Authority (TFDA) officials after being found in possession of fake harmful cosmetics at her saloon.
Esma Khan spent Saturday night in police cells after being ambushed by TFDA officials in possession of fake cosmetics without proper documentation. She was arrested and detained at Mabatini Police station.
On receiving the news, Sandra Kassim, her mother, accompanied by Petit Man, who is Esma’s husband, rushed to the police station to effect her release. Police however turned down their pleas and Esma spent the night in jail. Sandra was also threatened to be thrown in the same jail with her daughter when she tried to insist on getting her daughter out. She is reported to have have an intense verbal fight with the police officers.
Esma was later released the following morning but after a case number KJM/4427/2018 was filed against her. She is set to appear before court for a ruling.
Too much trouble for the family.
