Mama Samia, 61, announced the death of Tanzania's President who was believed to have succumbed to heart related issues.
"Despite being vice-president since 2015, and having served as a state minister in the previous government, little is known about Ms Samia's private life."
"She was born in January 1960 on Zanzibar - the semi-autonomous islands off the coast of mainland Tanzania. Later she went on to study public administration, first in Tanzania and then as a post-graduate at UK's Manchester University.
In 1978, she married Hafidh Ameir, who is known to be an agricultural academic, but has also kept a low profile. Since Ms Samia became vice-president, the two have not been pictured together."
They have four children with one, Mwanu Hafidh Ameir, who is currently a member of Zanzibar House of Representatives." BBC notes.
Diamond Platnumz has been so close to the fallen President which also meant he was with the Deputy, who now happens to be the first female President in Tanzania, he plans to continue from there, but for now though, congratulations are in order.
"Congratulations to our mother SAMIA SULUHU HASSAN for being the First Female President in Tanzania... Post and Comments of people from online to home, show how much people love you and trust you... John Pombe Magufuli and many more you will do," Platnumz concluded.
