Diamond Platnumz’ father begs Tanasha and Diamond to let him attend anticipated wedding 

It’s not a secret Diamond Platnumz and his father Mzee Abdhul Naseeb don’t see eye to eye.

Diamond Platnumz has always left him in the dark on when handling his stuff and now, mzee Abdhul has come out to public beg the singer to invite him for his much anticipated wedding.

Speaking to Showbiz Xtra, mzee Abdhul confessed that he has been hearing about the wedding like any other normal person but has been totally excluded from the talks.


He pleaded with Diamond to invite him, saying that it would be very sad for his son to wed Tanasha Donna in front of the nation and he wouldn’t be present.

‘No one has told me anything about any wedding, I have heard it from people in the hood. Above all, I only want the wedding to be successful. But I just want him to invite me, if he fails to do that he will have disrespected me a lot, I will not be happy.” Mzee Abdhul said.


 BASATA warns singer Diamond: Don’t try and perform in Kenya unless you want more trouble 

Things are not looking good for Diamond Platnumz, his team and their scheduled performances set to take place in several counties in Kenya.

Despite Diamond’s manager recently promising that the shows set to happen in Embu, Nairobi and Mombasa will take place, Basata acting chief executive officer Onesmo Kayanda has warned the singer not to try and perform.

The Law

The body has banned the singer from performing in and outside Tanzania after he performed “Mwanza” which was initially banned by the body. The body has also canceled the Wasafi Festival. Diamond is scheduled to have three shows in Kenya; that’s in Embu on December 24, Wasafi Festival in Mombasa 26th and on New Year’s Eve in Nairobi.

“Sisi Basata we are the substitute of the government. Kama akiamua hivyo (perform in Kenya), hii kanuni ya Basata huwa inakuwa ni substitute ya sheria za nchi na akiikaidi lile suala linakuwa la kijinai. Likishakuwa la kijinai linakwendwa kwa Mwanasheria Mkuu wa serikali sisi tunawakabidhi mahakamani. Kwa hiyo mtu akikuika kanuni zetu za Basata, amevuka na kwenda kwenye ishu ya kijinai,” said Onesmo Kayanda.

Diamond’s manager Babu Tale, shared in an interview that they are working on getting the ban lifted and hope that Diamond will hit the stage soon.


Diamond reveals how much he charges per show and it’s enough to buy you a bungalow in Syokimau

WCB President Diamond Platnumz is one paid kid. While some artists are struggling to make money in the industry, the singer is really making a killing from his music.

Diamond recently had to remind the Tanzanian government how much he makes per show after they banned Rayvanny’s new hit “Mwanza” because of its explicit lyrics.

On Instagram, Diamond said that his music targets a bigger fan base than just Tanzanians therefore he puts a lot in consideration when making the songs.


He went on to explain that he’s called for performances in other countries and they pay him at least $70,000 for a performance which is same as Tsh168, 300,000 or Ksh 7 million. How much does a 3 bedroom bungalow in Syokimau cost again?

He added that banning of his songs would not only affect his career but also the government in terms of taxes.

“Wazee wetu, vijana wenu ama wasanii wenu sasahivi tumefanikiwa kuingia kwenye masoko mbalimbali hivyo sio kila nyimbo ni kwajili ya soko la nyumbani Tanzania tu, mfano: UGANDA kuna Tamasha Linaitwa NYEGE FESTIVAL….na kwa nafasi niliyonayo UGANDA na kwajinsi nyimbo hii ilivyovuma kwa kishindo kila kona ndani ya siku tatu tu Viewers 1.5+ Millions Youtube, basi naamini kabisa Mwakani lazima NYEGE FETIVAL waniite kutumbuiza…na kama mnavyofahamu bei zangu huwaga si chini dola elf Sabini za kimarekani ( $70,000) kwa show
sawa na milioni (160,300,000 za kitanzania).…mbazo kwa show moja tu ningeweza kuchangia pato la kodi si chini ya milioni (48,090,000 ya kitanzania)…hivyo naomba mlitazame na hapo Balaza letu Pendwa” 
wrote Diamond.

Diamond however claims that he was just visiting his kids who are with Zari. Speaking to a local website, the singer shot down any link that he has been asking for another chance.

Hao wanaosema kwamba sijui nimemuangukia , nafikiri itakuwa ni maoni yao tu na stori za kutunga lakini kimsingi ni kwamba hayana ukweli wowote, Zari ni mama wa watoto wangu na itabaki kuwa hivyo,” he said.

Just went to see my kids

“Ni kweli ninaenda. Siyo mara moja au mara mbili nimeenda. Nakwenda kule si kwa maana ya kumuomba msamaha, hapana. Nakwenda kule kwa ajili ya kuwaona wanangu. Haiwezekani eti niwe natuma fedha za matumizi halafu nimeenda Sauz nisiende kuwaona wanangu, hilo litakuwa jambo la ajabu sana,
