Diamond Platnumz’s Ugandan wife Zarinah Hassan alias Zari is in mourning after losing her ex-husband and father to her three boys Ivan Ssemwanga.
The Ugandan self-proclaimed billionaire passed on in a South African Hospital where he was receiving treatment after suffering a heart condition.
As reported by NAIROBI GOSSIP earlier,Zari Hassan broke the sad news via her social media accounts with an emotional post.
The beautiful socialite eulogized her ex-hubby in a long letter she penned down just moments after Ivan’s death.
‘’God loves those that are special and that’s exactly who you were & I guess that’s why he wanted you to himself. You have touched and helped thousands, you did wonders and I remember you telling me “life is too short let me live it to the fullest”, this very dark hour it makes sense why you always said those words to me. To your sons, you were a hero-some kind of superman. Anyone who has ever been in your presence knows what a charming person you were. You will be missed and remembered in so many ways. You were IVAN THE GREAT! Rest in peace DON’’ Zari wrote.
News of Ivan’s death came as a surprise to many of his fans who have been praying for him ever since he was checked into ICU.
On Tuesday, May 23 20117 an audio recording bearing Zari Hassan’s voice and a man alleged to be the late Ivan’s brother quarreling for the deceased properties made to the interwebs.

“This is an announcement: Kindly note Ivan Semwanga is not allowed visitors any more, he is in critical condition and his privacy as a patient is being invaded i. We will appreciate if you continue praying for him.Stay blessed!”
