Diana fails to tame the leopard

HARARE - When Afro-jazz artiste Diana Samkange became the second wife of popular football agent Carl Nyazema four years ago, she was obviously determined to disprove the old proverb: A Leopard cannot change its spots.

As Diana sought protection from her husband’s pregnant lover Wendy Tendai Sanyahukwe at the Civil Court, it must have dawned on her at long last that her hubby is indeed a leopard with indelible spots.

The latest confrontation between the beautiful Afro-jazz diva and her husband’s lover, who has been wilfully defying a 2011 peace order, is a clear testimony that the celebrity’s marriage is wobbling.

Apparently, the struggle to become Nyazema’s favourite between Diana and Wendy began barely a year into the Afro-jazz artiste’s marriage to the famous football agent with an eye for beautiful women.

According to court records, Diana’s marital woes began well before the 2011 peace order that she got against the Mbare-based Wendy.

As the fight between Diana and Wendy plays out, members of the public are unanimous that the Kumagumo Erudo singer is tasting her own medicine since she snatched Nyazema from another woman in July 2010.

A defiant Diana, though, refused to comment on the popular view that she is “testing her own medicine.”

She told the Daily News on Sunday that her move to drag Sanyahukwe to court was only meant to safeguard her rights.

“I won’t comment on the “tasting my own medicine” part but I would like to say that I don’t regret taking this issue to court,” she said.

“I was only making sure that my rights are not infringed upon by the actions of other people.”

While it is not looking rosy for Diana on the marriage front, she has fared much better on the music stage.

The former member of 2BG has three albums under her belt which are My First Diary, Kumagumo Erudo and Kumazivandadzoka.

Her latest album Kumazivandadzoka appears to carry subtle hints on the diva’s stormy marital life.
