Although Diamond did not bag BET award for the best international act 2021, he is grateful for the nomination and the fact that he represented the East African community well. His defeat is a win on its own when you look at the positive side because this means he is now an international musician.
Having his name among the nominees also put him in the same league as Western musicians like Wizkid, burna boy, and Davido. Even though diamond did not get the chance to perform in the event, he represented East Africa very well through her atttire. This is after he chose to step out in a Maasai attire and from his looks, let's just say he nailed it.
He was among African musicians and only East African nominated in BET award in the best international act category. Diamond's nomination stirred an intense hate debate towards him in social media. A number of Tanzanians including fellow musicians admitted to siding with burna boy or Wizkid.
