Diamond Platnumz is one of the rare musicians in the industry who has been consistently presenting hits over and over again. Songs such as Number One have hit over 10million views on YouTube and attracted enough likes to depart the Bongo Flavor star from fledgling East African artists. Just this year alone, he collaborated to write Tetema, a club banger that has asserted its dominance in clubs and even residential places, at the expense of other songs. But who would blame Diamond Platinumz for producing quality music? And if you are brave enough, then his most current video – The One – that hit the market space with a bang, will make you look for more than just a lawyer, because boy, it is hot?

Nasibu Abdul Juma, commonly known as Diamond Platnumz only seems to increase his follower base with every new song hit he releases to the market. His collaborations with popular musicians such as Davido, Ne-Yo, Casper Nyovest, Omarion and Patoranking have only helped to engrave his art in the hearts of people, both in Africa and also internationally.

Always working on creating new music, his music fans grow attached of him with every new release, so much that we can beckon it adoration. His extravagant and scandalous lifestyle is also one of his important mentions, but you know what they say concerning social capitalism; all publicity is good publicity. His song though, comes through for him, in cases of negative publicity, covering him over and over again. Lately, the man with a great voice distributed a new music video popularly called The One and this is how it is doing so far in the industry

The One- music video

Diamond Platnumz newest song– The One just released 22 hours ago and is already a major hit. Early this month, Diamond Platnumz took to social media to advertise the impending release of his newest video. In an Instagram post, the artist said he would be releasing his song for the first time in the new Wasafi Radio and Wasafi TV programs — a first among his many firsts.

On 21st April 2019, he formally published The One to his official YouTube channel that has over 1.8 million subscribers.

The official video of the new song was produced by Lizer Classic. The video shoot was a work of Director Kenny from Zoom Productions. And just like the familiar crispy clear and meticulously edited and styled Diamond Platnumz music videos in the past, this one was not a disappointment as well. Believe it or not, the video was all shot in Tanzania, particularly Tanga Marogoto, Bagamoyo and Morogoro. Is that country not pretty? Thanks to the splendid producer and director, this video will be included as one of Diamond Platnumz best videos so far — at least for me.

In the trending song, Diamond Platnumz tells his baby he would die for her. The song begins off with the words ‘my heart never tells me lies, I know you love me.’ These words are clearly relatable to someone who is in the beginning of a newly-found love. He then comforts her that he feels the same way too and would even die for her.

In the second verse of the song, he switches to Swahili maintaining that he would die for her and urges her not to be frightened by those who speak wicked of their love. He proceeds to convince her that no one will come between them, while he openly claims her as the one he loves.

The switch between Swahili and English is endearing. The Namibian line ‘baby oh nikuhole’ is similarly a nice touch, and probably the only hint that it was a collaborated audio. By using the languages, Diamond Platnumz is once again increasing his fan base.

Diamond is very decisive in the music he chooses and how he produces. Just this year, he made Tetema a club banger that will still remain relevant for a while to come. It is interesting to see who he features in his music next.

Did Diamond cut out King Tee Dee from The One?

Obviously Platnumz The One was originally a collaboration between the WCB Wasafi boss and a talented musician from Namibia- King Tee Dee. On Feb 9th 2019, the two artists colluded on new audio dubbed One I Love. In the song, King Tee Dee brought his original brand of Mshasho that Namibians are more familiar with. In the One I Love audio, the two are clearly jamming to the song with King Tee Dee singing a few lines in his native language.

However, in the release of the official video, some of these phrases are actually missing. A significant portion of the song, where King Tee Dee refers to himself as the Dogg, is the most obvious indicator. In fact, Diamond Platinumz has been accused of replacing full King Tee Dee verses with Swahili, a move that did not sit well with Namibians.

Comments about the video

Namibians, ganging up against him, were enraged as to why he had to cut one of their most talented musicians from a song whose beat can clearly be identified as Mshasho. They mobilized to unlike the video, which explains why it has over 12k dislikes on YouTube. In one of the comments, someone actually suggested he would report the video as child abuse. Nothing has come out of it though, and the song is still trending.

Speaking on Instagram, King Tee Dee downplayed the whole incident saying that Diamond actually made the song better and that great music came from the heart. He has since released a new song- You, that has been trending on iTunes.

Here are some of the general reactions on twitter:

Black Label Please expresses his love for the music but does not seem to wrap his head around the fact that King Tee Dee’s verse is not part of the video.

BabyAfrica events applauds Diamond for his yet again great comeback into the show biz.a

Is Tanasha Donna The One?

In the official YouTube release video, Diamond Platinumz captions, ‘let this be a dedication to the one you love’. The two lovebirds who have hinted at a wedding for the longest while have fans speculating on their every move. Allegedly, the wedding was set for 14th February 2019, but as that didn’t happen showbiz has been flying with rumours that were silenced by Diamond’s sister. Speaking at an interview, she assured fans that the wedding was still on and the two are very much together.

The pair have not posted mushy photos on social media since, probably because Diamond Platinumz has been on tour promoting the Wasafi festival while Tanasha has had to work on her own projects. They have hanged out a few times but not as often as they used to when they first started dating. So when the new song dropped fans could not help but insinuate that it was a dedication to Tanasha. It can also be said that the female video vixens have the lean, slender form of Tanasha. Informed choice, or coincidence?

It wouldn’t be the first time the Tanzanias WCB boss is singing for his beloved. In his song starring Nigeria’s Tiwa Savage, Diamond quotes both Wema Sepetu and Zari Hassan in a verse. While he was married to Zari Hassan, he frequently posted clips of songs where he was singing to her. So, is The One devoted to his wife-to-be Tanasha Donna?

Diamond Platnumz is a big force to reckon with in the African entertainment industry. Expanding his music as he has all over Africa it always looks like he is just getting started. He has been in the music game for more than seven years, and still seems fresh everyday. How he operates to produce music, head a record label, be a father to his children and sell out festival shows knows about the hard work he puts into his profession. His newest music video The One and the Wasafi festival are a few of his current activities. His relationships are also remarkably controversial and public. Love him or hate him; you can’t afford not to be on the loop
