Diamond Platnumz’s sexuality has been a subject of discussion in Tanzania for a while. The singer’s behavior has got homophobes talking.
Amber Lulu recently took a swipe at Diamond for wearing ankle bracelet. The ‘Baila’ hit maker raised eyebrows when he seen wearing ankle bracelet during one of his performances in America.
Diamond also sparked public uproar when he pierced his nose sometimes in 2016. The move equally attracted claims of homosexuality.
Am not gay
Diamond addressed recent claims of homosexuality during an interview with Global Publishers. He explains that he innocently wore the ankle bracelet because he thought it was fancy and not because he is gay.
“Kwanza sijui kama kile ni kikuku, nilivaa kama ninavyovaa mikufu au cheni. Niliona ni urembo kama urembo mwingine na kwamba haiwezi kuwa ishu kubwa kama ilivyotokea. Ninawaomba chondechonde waache kunihusisha na jambo hilo baya, ujue nyuma yangu kuna watu wengi mno wanatamani kuwa kama mimi hasa vijana wadogo.
“Sasa wakiona ninahusishwa na jambo ambalo linapigwa vita nchini mwetu, wataacha kunifuatilia kama mtu wanayetamani kuwa kama yeye. Lakini unajua imekuwa ni kasumba kwa watu maarufu kuhusishwa na jambo hilo ili kuwajengea picha fulani kwa mashabiki au wafuatiliaji wake,” said Diamond.
CR7 and MJ
Diamond also said that football star Cristiano Ronaldo and fallen king of pop Micheal Jackson were once rumored to be gay yet no one ever proved the claim. He however apologized for offending people with the ankle bracelet he wore.
“Mtu kama marehemu Michael Jackson alikuwa akihusishwa na ushoga, lakini hakuna aliyekuwa na ushahidi labda ilitokana tu na ishu za kujibadilisha mwili au sura. Kwa hiyo si jambo geni kwa watu maarufu kusikia eti fulani ni shoga. Jambo hilo linaweza kuwa linatengenezwa na mpinzani wako.
“Hata Cristiano Ronaldo amekuwa akihusishwa na ushoga, lakini amekuwa akipotezea na kuendelea kupiga hela. Kama nilivyosema si jambo geni lakini limenichefua sana. Najua mimi kama mtu wao nimewaudhi hivyo ninawaomba radhi na nisingependa waendee kunihusisha na dhambi hiyo.”
