Diamond Platnumz will be performing at the opening ceremony of the 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) which starts on January 14th in Gabon.
Diamond will team up with Nigeria’s Mr. Flavour to entertain the crowd before the host nation takes on Guinea–Bissau in the first AFCON game.
The two artists have performed together before at various events, latest being at Glo-CAF Award 2016 in Abuja; they also collaborated to drop “Nana” hit song.
President Magufuli’s government showed its support for Diamond as he heads to perform in Gabon. Tanzania’s Minster for Sports, Culture and Art gave Diamond the national flag as a symbol of blessing from the government to represent the country in Gabon.
