“I am extremely close with Diamond. We talk often since we have known each other from when he was dating Zari Hassan. He helped me to take my talent to Tanzania,” Eric candidly disclosed during the conversation.

“My friend is Tanasha, my favorite is Zari. Tanasha is like my sister, but I am closer to Zari because we do a lot of business together,” Eric said.

Eric’s appreciation for both Tanasha Donna, a Kenyan singer and former partner of Diamond, and Zari is evident in his affectionate remarks.

While he considers Tanasha as a close friend and sister figure, his strong business ties with Zari have brought them even closer.

Ofweneke described Diamond as a poor kisser asking the comedian if he had watched an episode on the recently aired, Young Famous and African reality show.

Eric also asked Ofweneke whether he had seen his recent one with his rumoured girlfriend, Zuchu who is also his signee.
