Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz, who was in the company of three women in his car, was forced to speed off from a roadside eatery in Sinza Afrikasana, Dar es Salaam, after several men surrounded his car (which has personalized plate), demanding he gets out of the car so that they could see the women the singer was with.
The men, who seemingly suspected that Diamond Platnumz was cheating on Zari in the car (which was parked by the roadside), made an ambush when a waitress brought chips to one of the women through the car’s back passenger window.
“The woman who had ordered chips lowered the passenger window, received the fries and rolled the windows up before Diamond Platnumz accelerated to a near 120kph speed,” a source told Tanzania’s Global Publishers.
The source further said he heard one of the women telling Diamond Platnumz that she is convinced that he (Diamond Platnumz) is dating popular Tanzanian model Hamisa Mobeto – claims Diamond has rubbished.
Sections of the men who surrounded Diamond Platnumz’s car alleged that he had gone to look for a commercial sex worker to take home; but many immediately rubbished the theory, saying it was unlikely for an artiste the caliber of Diamond Platnumz to move around looking for twilight girls.
Global Publishers reached Diamond Platnumz for comment, and when he was found on phone, he said: “On that night I was with my friends; three women, among them Queen Darlin. We had stopped by the roadside eatery to buy food as we had camped in studio the whole day. While there, I saw a crowd of men surrounding my car and demanding I get out. I was not sure about their intention, and speeding off was the only thing I could do.”
