Diamond’s sister Esma Khan ties the knot in private Islamic ceremony

Diamond Platnumz’s younger sister, Esma Khan, exchanged vows with Tanzanian talent manager Jembe One in a private Islamic ceremony on February, 23, marking the beginning of their marital journey.

Esma, a prominent figure in her own right, now assumes the role of Jembe One’s wife as they embark on this new chapter together.

The intimate event was graced by close family members, including Esma’s children and her mother, Mama Dangote.

Diamond Platnumz was also in attendance to celebrate the joyous occasion with his sister.

Moments before the marriage ceremony commenced, Jembe One expressed his readiness and anticipation to wed Esma, emphasizing his commitment to their union.

“I am ready, I’m going into the Mosque right now for the marriage rites,” he remarked.

In a heartfelt message shared a week prior to the wedding, Jembe One described Esma as his destined partner, expressing gratitude for their journey together despite initial challenges.

“When we started, I felt like our journey might be difficult because of the rumors and words being said,” he confessed.

“But we gave each other courage and maintained faith. It’s been a year now. I pray to Allah to continue granting us happiness, love, and devotion throughout. You are my woman and half to me, I love you, I love you, and I will continue to love you, God willing, until death do us part.”

For Esma, this marks her second marriage, having previously been wed as the third wife to Tanzanian businessman Msizwa.

However, that marriage was short-lived, lasting only a few months.

Reflecting on her past experiences, Esma shared candidly with the media, acknowledging her haste in making decisions and the role that external factors, such as the pandemic, played in her previous marriage’s downfall.

“Maybe I rushed, I was in a hurry. I didn’t give myself time to think, is the person I’m marrying right for me?” she admitted. “During that time of the pandemic, there was stress and everything. When someone came, it felt like a mental relief. I don’t want to repeat the mistakes I made back then.”

Esma emphasized her desire for a respectful and meaningful marital bond, underscoring the importance of marriage both personally and religiously.

“I am a woman who needs to get married, I need my respect back. Religiously, it’s a must for me to get married,” she affirmed.
