‘I Didn’t Meet His Expectations:’ KenyanArtist Tanasha Donna Says on Her Breakupwith Singer Diamond Platnumz
Kenyan artist Tanasha Donna says she broke up with Diamond Platnumz because the Tanzanian singer was not committed to their relationship.
Tanasha, in an interview True Love Magazine, disclosed that she decided to ship out after realizing Diamond had lost interest and that she was the only one fighting to keep the relationship.
In addition, the mother of one pointed out that she failed to meet her baby daddy’s expectations in the relationship, leading to a disagreement.
“At some point, I got a bit lost because now a child is involved and now, I’m thinking about my son, not just me, I don’t want my son to grow up without a father. I’m really trying to fight for this relationship, but I can’t be the only one fighting, so I had to think of what’s best for me and my son too. Towards the end, things were getting rocky, for about 6 months but we were still trying to see how we can make it work and then it got to a point where you see the other person has just lost interest,” said Tanasha.
She added: “And it’s not because of anything emotional but it’s because of not leaving [sic] up to certain expectations he had, but it’s not his fault because everybody is wired the way they are and when you don’t leave up to this person’s expectation, for some people it is not easy to hang on. So, I feel that’s where things started going down because I really wanted to be my own person as well as be in this relationship.”
Asked on whether she regrets dating the Bongo Flava star, she said: “I have been in two serious relationships in my life and I learned something in all these relationships and I never have regrets regardless. Everything happens for a reason and its never failure but always a lesson. A lot of women tend to lose themselves -including me I have been there; you enter this relationship and you lose yourself and you start to get comfortable. And when you get comfortable in a relationship, it’s not a good thing.”
Tanasha further revealed that Diamond’s mother, Mama Dangote complicated their relationship, noting that she is quite controlling.
On whether she came back to Kenya with the luxury car she was gifted by Diamond on her birthday, Donna said: “The car is in Tanzania. I had no interest in taking it coz I have my car here, my BMW, its actually in the garage messed up. I’m not gonna leave a relationship then I’m like I’m taking the car or taking this, you can have it. I can get myself a car or anything I need and that’s what matters,”
The two began dating in November 2018 and were blessed with a son last year. Tanasha split with Diamond and returned to Kenya early last month.
