I Almost Went Broke featuring Davido – Tanzanian Superstar, Diamond Platnumz

Posted by on February 16, 2021 0


Tanzanian superstar, Naseeb Abdul Juma professionally known as Diamond Platnumz, has opened up on working with Davido in 2013, He revealed some interesting new details about the remix of his song, Number One, with Nigerian singer, Davido

Speaking with Nairobi News, the singer opened up about how he almost went broke in 2013, at a time his musical career had started to blossom.

The 31-year-old who was already famous in East and Central Africa decided to try his luck in the West African area and this is where Davido came in.

In September 2013, Platnumz released his hit track Number One which to date has 7 million views on Youtube.

“Before doing the first video version of Number One at Ogopa Djs in Nairobi, my video cost used to be about US$ 3,000 (N1.1m) per video. With Number One, I went 10 times higher and spent US$30,000 (N11.4 million) or thereabout to fly Ogopa Djs video crew to Cape Town, South Africa, and shoot my video. The outcome was amazing, and that gave me the green light to approach Davido for a remix.” He said

His decision to get Davido on a remix of the song saw him almost going broke as he had to take loans from Tanzania banks to shoot the music video for the song. According to him, he had to travel with his crew to Lagos.

“I took loans from Tanzania banks to finance my video and collaboration with Davido in Lagos because I had to travel there with my crew,” he added.

However Diamond never regrets the risky move as it eventually paid off almost immediately after the remix opened him to a new market and opportunities enabling him to jump-start Wasafi.
