The 21st annual BET awards was held yesternight with the theme "Year of the Black Woman." Award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson hosted the ceremony from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where a live audience attended for the first time since the Corona virus pandemic began.
Diamond Platinumz represented East Africa at the big event and even though he didn't win the Best International act award, he left a mark there with his full 'Maasai warrior' attire. However, some netizens didn't seem to understand that he was just showing that he was proud of African heritage and went ahead to criticize him while a few praised him.
Diamond Platinumz is a Tanzanian bongo flava recording artist, actor, dancer, philanthropist and a businessman from Tandale, Dar es Salaam.
