Two weeks or so ago, the blogs were awash with stories of an impending breakup between Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platnumz and his wife Zari Hassan.

The singer who is known for releasing nothing but hit songs, has now come out to reveal how a call from Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, saved his crumbling marriage.

As mentioned earlier, the singer’s marriage was in deep waters after a photo of Zari relaxing with her cousin-in-law in a swimming pool went viral on social media.

Many were convinced that the Ugandan socialite was messing around with her late ex-husband Ivan Ssemwanga’s cousin just a few days after his funeral in Uganda.

It was later established though that Zari’s cousin-in-law is married and his wife was in the same pool where Zari was photographed. As a matter of fact, Zari said that it was her (the wife) who took the photo.

Speaking recently about the issue and the rumoured breakup, the ‘Salome’ hitmaker says that he received a lot of phone calls that saved his union with Zari, the mother of his two kids.

Among those who called him is P-Square’s Peter who reportedly called him and faulted him for posting about his marital issues on social media.
