ABUJA – Nigerian music star, Peter Okoye of the defunct P-Square, also known as Mr. P, has rejected the claim by Tanzania bongo flavour, Diamond Platnumz, that he (Mr. P) slept with his then-wife, Zari Hassan which led to their separation.
Platnumz, during an interview on Tuesday, April 23 on his Wasafi Radio, had said, “Zari was dating P-Square’s Peter a few months before she and I got our first baby, Latiffah Dangote.”
“I read messages that she and Peter sent each other via mobile phone. I even confronted her.”
But responding to the allegations on Cool FM, Mr. P said it was “stupid” of the Tanzanian singer to make such utterances.
He said, “To be honest with you, I do not know what they are talking about. I can never, and would never say anything,” swore Mr. P.
“Please, I have a new single, and I do not want to get distracted. I do not want to comment on Diamond’s allegations. In fact, it is stupid,” he added.
“Once people discover that you are doing well, the devil just finds a way of rearing its ugly head. Nonetheless, we are friends with Diamond Platnumz; he is my guy.”
Responding to the allegation, Zari, through to Instagram rubbished the claims, noting that those who dared believe her ex-husband were just as “stupid” as he was.
“He alleged that I had a relationship with P-Square’s Peter, and another with my personal trainer… If you guys are going to believe a word that comes from him, the same man who denied his own blood, then you are all stupid just like him.
“I am asking you to respect me; stay where you are; the kids and I are doing fine without you.”
Platinumz in now in a new relationship with Kenyan radio presenter Tanasha Donna.
