Wasafi records CEO, and re-known Tanzanian bongo star Diamond Platnumz, has finally broken his silence, answering the long-lingering question about following in the footsteps of his manager Babu Tale.
Speaking on Wasafi FM’s the switch, the WCB boss revealed that he had not for once thought of himself as ditching the guitar and joining politics. “Kiukweli mimi bado sijajiona kwenye Siasa.”
The Baba Lao hit singer went ahead to say that he still got a huge debt to pay in the music business, and a further mountain climb in the building and improving the Tanzanian music.
He added that he will continue his unwavering support for any politician who has the right agenda for the common folk and delivering their promises to the people.
“Mimi bado nina Deni kwenye Muziki bado nahitaji kuleta Maendeleo zaidi kwenye Muziki . Nitaendelea kuwaunga mkono watu waliongia kwenye siasa ninaoona wanafaa,” stated Diamond Platnumz.
A number of musicians have been contesting for political positions in Tanzania, with the most recent one being Diamond Platinumz manager Babu Tale.
Tale bagged the Morogoro Mashariki constituency seat unopposed under the ruling party ticket, Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).
“@babutale Sina Mshaka juu ya Uongozi wako, kwasababu naamini kama uliweza kuniongoza mimi / Wasafi na Wasanii Mbalimbali walotutangulia na wote kufanya vyema tena kwa kiwango kikubwa, basi naamini Kupitia wewe Morogoro vijinini Kusini Mashariki itakuwa salama Mikononi mwako na nami pamoja na Familia nzima ya Wasafi tuko Nyuma yako kuhakikisha kuwa tunakusaidia kwa hali na mali kuleta Maendeleo Morogoro Vijijini kusini Mashariki na kwa pamoja kumsaidia Mh raisi Dr. John Pombe Magufuli kuijenga Tanzania ya sasa,” wrote Diamond Platnumz.
