Why Tanzania’s President called Diamond Platnumz while on live TV


Singer Diamond Platnumz and Tanzania President John Magufuli have crossed on several occasions but that doesn’t mean they are not friends.

He called to congratulate him on his recent success and flying the Tanzanian flag high on international scene.

Magufuli also congratulated the singer on getting his second child with Zari Hassan.

Diamond in return, urged the Magufuli to continue supporting artists in the music industry.

“Tunakuomba sana utusaidie kwa vile tunaamini tunajua wewe ni raisi wetu sisi wanyonge kwa vile utakua umeokoa familia nyingi sana” (We urge you Mr President to help us from the lower classes to make it in the music industry and you will have saved the families of many artistes,”) He pleaded with Magufuli.
