The Big Hits That Brought Diamond Platnumz From Selling "Mtumba" To A Superstar

Before there was Diamond Platnumz, there was a struggling Naseeb Abdhul who was trying to eke a living by selling or rather hawking second-hand clothes, otherwise known as mtumba.

However, with hard work, resilience and prayers, the gods finally smiled on the boy from Tandale, making him a worldwide star. Well, most of you may know about his success but do not have any idea about his long, tiresome journey that he endured to become the star he is today.

Just to remind you about the massive hits that put the singer on the map ever since he made a debut in the much competitive music industry.

1.Nataka Kulewa (2014)

Being a people who love to drink, Kenyans warmly received Diamond's 2014 hit song Nataka Kulewa in which he sang about wanting to get drunk after walking in on his lover with another man. The song became an instant hit as it was a clubs' favourite with many deejays popularising it through their sets both in clubs and on mainstream media.

2.Salome Featuring Rayvanny (2017)

In 2017, the star sought the services of his own signee Rayvanny for his hit song Salome. The two remixed Saida Karoli's song Chambua Kama Karanga and gave it a new sound that shook the entire world.

3.Hallelujah Featuring Morgan Heritage (2018)

Diamond crossed the boarders and went international in 2018 by having the most popular Jamaican music family, Morgan Heritage, on his record, Hallelujah.As the name suggests, the song revolved around thanking God for all the mercies and blessings.
