Tanzanian musician, Diamond Platnumz’s biological father Abdul Juma has revealed that he still sells second hand shoes to put food on the table as his son lives lavishly.
In a candid interview with ‘Mpaka Home’, a YouTube programme, Juma disclosed that his celebrity his son rarely supports him.
The old man openly regretted dumping Diamond’s mother Bi Sandra Snura while the singer was a teenager, and wished his son could forgive him and make peace.
Juma however wonders why the singer believes everything his mother tells him on what led to their split thus picking sides.
Diamond’s father pleaded with the singer and his siblings to start a business for him, similar to the philanthropic gestures they have extended to other people.
Juma has previously been accused of being a dead beat father who wants to ride on the success of his son.
He remarried years after dumping Diamond’s mother and had two other children.
