Inshallah panapo majaliwa mwaka wa 2019 nitaoa. Mbali na ivo ndoa yangu ilitakiwa iwe siku ya valentines tarehe kumi na nne lakini tumeipeleka mbele kwa sababu ndo yangu watu wengi wanatakiwa kuja kuhudhuria na siku hio kidogo haikukaa vizuri.´ Ndoa yangu watakuja kina Rick Ross, wasanii niliofanya nao collabo, ndugu jamaa na marafiki. I want it to be a royal wedding kama ya kina Prince Harry wa Uingereza. Kila mtu anatamani kuiona, kila mtu anatamani kuihudhria. Najitahidi kuitengeneza kila mtu aweze kuiona. Nimeipeleka mbele kidogo lakini kuna kitu ntakifanya siku ya valentine,” said Diamond.

Diamond’s half-sister, self-styled Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) First Lady, Queen Darleen is remembered to have hinted loud on the controversially postponed valentine wedding date between Diamond and Tanasha this year.

Queen Darleen revealed that her brother was not ready for marriage and was not going to settle down any time soon as majority had anticipated.

He and I often talk about matters of marriage and relationships. Diamond fears being in a ‘marital cage’. He says he wants to settle down when he is ready, and I don’t think he is currently up for it,” said Darleen.
