And to the question on why he pushed the wedding date from valentines, Diamond explained saying, “The reason why we had to change the date is because Tanasha’s mother will be working on Valentine’s Day. I do not want a small wedding, if it is possible I would like the government to consider it a public holiday,” he said.
