Diamond’s wife eulogised her mother as the family’s ‘Old Sun’ who will be forever missed.
Friends and relatives gathered at Zari’s Uganda home after she flew into the country from South Africa for the burial. Her children, including the two he has with Diamond are based there.
Diamond Platnumz also attended the funeral and was in the company of his mother. They flew into Uganda to be with Zari and her family.
Zari has two lesser known siblings, a brother and a sister who are both younger than her.
Immediately after the burial, Zari had to rush back to South Africa because her youngest child, Prince Nillan, had fallen sick and had been admitted to hospital.
