Diamond Platnumz is the real definition of a true African man. If you know, you know. The Tanzanian singer has a long list of exes, some of whom we might never know. One of his ‘hidden’ exes, VJ Penny, has gone public for once in many years to reveal why she has distanced herself from the award-winning artiste.
VJ Penny is a female disk and video jockey, famous for her deejay skills in Tanzania. She dated Diamond Platnumz the first time after he broke up with Wema Sepetu. They dated for a while before Wema Sepetu retrieved her man, only to break up again later when Diamond fell for Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan.
The female veejay revealed that despite having a few golden moments with the ‘African Beauty’ singer, she does not want to be referred to as his ex, and has tried so hard to distance herself from him. Speaking to an online media agency in Tanzania, VJ Penny said that she likes it when boundaries are drawn because an ex is an ex and the line should never be crossed.

She said that whatever they had built together is all in the past and she has since moved on with a fresh start in her life. She said;
Those are boundaries I have created, an ex is an ex, truth be told. The meaning of an ex is that ‘it’s over’. We can say hi but there is space we need to give each other to maintain the respect and live in harmony. When you start hanging out with your ex there are stories that crop up and can hurt your family. I have to look out for my family. If I meet Diamond I will say hi, but I’ll stay away and give him his time to shine as he is a star. I also didn’t want to be in that mix.
There are a few strings still attached according to those close to Diamond who indicate that he may not really be over her especially now that he is publicly single. In his recent hit song ‘Sikomi’, he did mention all his exe’s including VJ Penny. From the lyrics in the song, Diamond revealed that she aborted his first child despite him giving her a car to keep it.
VJ Penny holds her ground that she never at once ever wished to be part of the mix in Diamond’s celebrity life story.
