Our favourite Tanzanian artiste is getting global recognition and we are here for it. Grammy award-winning American musician Alicia Keys has praised Diamond Platnumz for his part on her album.
Platinumz was featured on the ‘Alicia’ album that was released last month. In the track ‘Wasted Energy’ Chibu Dangote is on it for 26 seconds.
In a video shared by Diamond, Alicia described the Tanzanian crooner as an amazing artist with a unique style, following the success of their collabo.
In her own words, she said;
“I also love that Diamond Platnumz was part of this, an amazing Tanzanian artist who happened to come in and bless this track with his unique style. I love how the worlds collide here. This is like world music collision at its finest.”
Responding to Alicia Keys, Diamond stated that working with the award winning singer was a dream come true for him.
Diamond’s fans went after Alicia, insisting to know why she only featured him for only 26-seconds in the track.
Her producer husband Swizz Beats defended her saying it was Diamond’s wish to be allocated 26 seconds in their song and asked the Tanzanian star to address his fans.
Swizz wrote on Instagram.
“My Brother 4 life. Please let your fans know you did as you pleased on the rec and this is just part 1.”
Diamond responded and urged his fans to stream the new album and pointed out that it was his own wish to do just the outro.
