Just weeks after singer Ali Kiba signed a one-year contract with Coastal Football Club as a player, Diamond Platnumz is now also set to join him in the same field.
This is after the popular singer was named by Simba Football Club, one of the biggest football clubs in Tanzania, as their social ambassador.
On social media, the popular club announced the new partnership saying: “Yes ni heshma kwa @diamondplatnumz kukabidhiwa hadhi ya ubalozi wa Simba kwa kulikuza jina letu..SIMBA IN DA HO– USE leo hapa Taifa… #SimbaDay #KibingwaZaidi.” posted Simba Sports Club Spokesperson Haji Sunday Manara.
Signing the deal doesn’t seem like it was a thing hard thing for both Diamond and the club. Diamond for a long time has been an avid supporter of the team. Simba SC also has a cult-like fan base.
The club is based in Msimbazi, Dar es Salaam and plays at Uhuru Stadium and National Stadium.
Tuesday is expected to be their first day on the pitch with Diamond as an ambassador as they play Kokoto Football Club from Ghana. The club will be celebrating a special day at the club dubbed “Simba’s Day.”
