Diamond’s London-based half sister Zubeida Juma has landed in Tanzania in a quest to resolve Diamond-father feud which has led to neglect of the father by the flamboyant singer.
Global Publishers reports that Zubeda is disappointed with Diamond for neglecting their ailing father, Nasib Abdul Juma.
“Naishi London, nimekuja Tanzania kwa ajili ya baba, Mzee Abdul. Actually nimekua na baba kama kipindi cha miezi sita. Nimesikiliza, nimeangalia YouTube kama ni kweli au si kweli kwamba you are not willing kuongea na Mzee Abdul (I live in London, I come to Tanzania for the sake of (our) father, Abdul. Actually, I have been with dad for a period of six months. I have listened and watched Youtube (videos) to see if it’s true you are not willing to talk to dad). Why are you hesitant not to come see your dad? That is what I want to know, why? What has he done really?” Said Zubeda.
Zubeida says she has been touched with conversations she has been having with the dad over the pain he going through.
“Please, I could say beg of you, because I have never been near you, please if possible to see each other, to sit down, to talk and see if we can sort out this problem between you and your dad. He is very ill; actually I have got pictures of your daddy’s legs,” she added.
The Kwangwaru crooner’s sister says that the father always cries when they talk, due to his ailment and neglect by the star son.
Diamond has not been in good terms with his father, saying that he neglected him as a child.
