- Diamond knew who his real father was!
In an interview with Tanzanian news outlet Bona TV, Diamond's grandmother, Mwanaisha Mrisho, said the singer knew his real dad. She said she finally met Diamond in 2002, when he paid her a visit. She also attended events concerning his children, who would technically be her great-grandchildren. He would even introduce his grandma as the ‘mother of my father’ at these gatherings.
