She went on a massive Instagram story rant, expressing her frustrations.
She confessed that 2019 was a rough year for her.
Fame is a double edged sword. It can bring a lot of exposure, as well as a lot of expectations. Diamond’s former partners, Zari and Hamisa left fans with a thirst for scandal. Unfortunately, Donna is not interested in satisfying her fans with drama. She addressed this on her Instagram stories;
“I’m at a stage in life where by I am transitioning and I’m transitioning really fast and so many things are happening simultaneously. There’s so much pressure I’m undergoing at the moment. You know 2019 was a good year for me but a very tough year. A lot of negativity, a lot of judgement, a lot of hate coz I happen to date this public figure who’s out there and you know when something is new to people and people are used to something for so long, and they see something new and they are not used to it, they tend to judge a lot and they are highly opinionated in your life, in your business. People are not used to the fact that I’m a private person. I’m a public figure who enjoys her personal privacy and her personal life. I’d rather have my craft and my talent be the clout, be the kiki like they call it but my personal life, my family, my mother, my cousins, my son, my personal business is my personal business. People were not used to that, people were used to trending for the wrong or right reasons, people were used to constant clout, constant controversy and the fact that I was not about that made people not like me,”
She ranted on, talking about how she tried to ignore the hate, but the noise just grew louder.
Constant judgement like oh how can you date such a girl she’s too simple, she’s too this or that. I went through a really difficult period having to endure and deal with all of that and even when I decided to close myself from all that negativity it somehow ended up being shoved right in my face and it got to a point I said you know what, I’m gonna focus and prove this muther*****rs wrong. Let me show them what I’m capable of, let me work on my projects, let me work on my EP let my projects be the clout,”
Lately, she has been working on several ambassadorial projects on her Instagram, and recently she released her new music video “La Vie” featuring Mbosso.
