Popular bongo star Naseeb Abdul popularly known as Diamond Platinumz is currently facing mixed reactions from Tanzanians after his nomination for the BET under the category of Best International Act.
A Non Governmental organization (NGO) known as 'change Tanzania' is on the move of collecting signatures virtually so that he may be disqualified from the awards.This NGO is accusing the African star for supporting late President John Pombe Magufuli's leadership which they speculated as dictatorial leadership.
Diamond was a close friend to the late John Pombe Magufuli and alongside his Wasafi Record Label artists could be invited to perform in most Magufuli's ceremonies.Current news indicate that over 20000 people have signed the petition and Diamond might end up being disqualified from the reknown world awards.
Diamond is among the best artists in Africa as in 2020 he became the first artist from Africa to hit a total of 1 billion views on YouTube.Do you think this petition will go through? Feel free to share your views on the comment section and remember to share and follow for more news.
