Bongo star Diamond Platnumz is by far the most sought after artiste from East Africa. He was the only artiste from this region to land a nomination in the just concluded B.E.T Awards 2016. Unfortunately lost but his wife Zari was there to console him.
Diamond was nominated alongside a host of other big African acts among them Wizkid, Casper Nyovest, Black Coffee and Yemi Alande. Unfortunetly, he lost terribly to South Africa’s Black Coffee. But he took it all in his stride and he lived to die another day. His fans across the continent took to social media to “congratulate” him for his ‘mercurial’ represention of East Africa at the prestigious annual awarding ceremony. This was after his loss to the South African.
However, among his most adored fans is his bae and baby mama, Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan. Her Instagram message for Diamond soon after he lost at the international awards, was not just the sweetest any man would expect from his heart’s dearest, but it also an encouraging message for the rest of the artistes from this part of Africa.
“You make East Africa & the rest of Africa proud and recognised when it comes to the music industry. Being nominated on such an international stage alone was a win as many artists around africa would love to grace this stage one day. Let God continue blessing you abundantly with life and hard work to enable you grace many more stages as this one. Congrats to all nominees, y’all are recognised winners. Have a blessed week ahead. Good night.” -Zari Hassan.
