Diamond Platnumz is working hard.
The Wasafi Records Managing Director is currently in France working on something new. The famed “Tetema” crooner has been in the City of Love sans his bae Tanasha Donnah for almost a week. Based on his frequent updates on Instagram, Chibu Dangote is living it up in the city.
The boy from Tandale is supposedly enjoying his time in the European city with Kalito Samaki, a Tanzania public figure. While in Paris, Platnumz has also made a private home visit to football star Samuel Etoo’s home. Diamond did not shy away from sharing his excitement about meeting the 4-time African Player of The Year baller. He captioned his post with the legend “Because making Our African Continent Proud is our Pleasure🙏🏻… A blessed day at My brother @setoo9 ‘s Paris Home!” The two celebrated African figures were pictured with Etoo’s trio of UEFA Champions League replica cups and seemed happy to spend a few moments bonding over football.
Diamond is set to visit Oman next for the Wasafi Festival Oman set for April 5th, 2019. Platnumz is scheduled to headline the show, sharing the stage with Wasafi Records artists Rayvanny, Harmonize, Mbosso, Lava Lava and his sister Queen Darlene.
Diamond Platnumz continues to grow from strength to strength despite being embroiled in public scandals. Last year, Platnumz release “Mwanza” was banned by Tanzania’s regulatory board BASATA and later lifted, as reported by The Sauce. However, it seems the worst is not over as it was reported last week that the Tanzanian’s track “Kwangwaru” has now been banned in Kenyan schools. According to Nairobi News, The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Officer Ezekiel Mutua says “the board will not allow minors to sing the song which he insisted has coded message that is purely obscene.” Mutua warned that the government will ban foreign music and performances that promote immorality, undermine the culture, customs, and laws in Kenya.
However, it seems that Platnumz is unbothered, making no comment on the recent ban.
