On this other side we might be looking at those new cars, new mansion, major awards, and even new catches as a sign of happiness for Diamond Platnumz but he has had such a sad year.

Big boys do cry, and for Diamond Platnumz it was a story of tears rolling down his famous cheeks every single day at the start of this year.

Emotions gripped the singer early in the year when he came to learn of his mother’s sickness. His mother fell critically ill and it is something he had not experienced before.

Diamond Platnumz, while appearing on an interview on a Tanzanian radio station, said that he had hit rock bottom seeing his mother in such pain and was really confused about life.

I’ve stayed with my mother for long and (had) never seen my Mum in pain. When the year started, I used to cry everyday. I was really confused. I learnt that in life there is health and sickness. Right now my mom is okay (but) I’ve learnt that today you might be on stage performing and tomorrow you’re sick.

Lest we forget, it is this same year in February that Diamond Platnumz separated with the mother of his two children, Zari Hassan, and also got dragged to court for failing to pay child support by his other baby mama Hamisa Mobetto.

His story can be used to inspire several people because despite all these troubles, he still stands out as one of the people’s favorite in Africa with his music winning him awards and major endorsements.
