Singer Tanasha Donna has come out to speak about claims that her baby daddy Diamond Platnumz and other artists are faking their riches.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Tanasha posted a video of Eric Omondi lashing out at doubters who doubted his ability to buy an expensive mansion in Karen, Nairobi.
In the video, Eric Omondi tells his followers that he has worked hard over the years to accumulate enough wealth to buy the house. He further urged Kenyans and Africans, in general, to start believing that art pays well.
“And that’s why I told you I have worked for 14 years. And there are people I know for their selfish reason, political reasons, some have sent me threats now are saying this is not my house, and I have worked for 14 years. After I have worked for 14 years, who doesn’t know Eric Omondi” Niliingia Churchill Live 2008. I have worked my a**s off for 14 years. This is nothing bwana. If you went to America Kevin Hart has five houses because American culture believes that hard work pays, but in Africa and Kenya, ‘eti Eric hawezi eka nyumba take Airbnb’,” Eric said in the video party shared by Tanasha.
To support Eric’s stand that art and hard work pays, Tanasha noted that the comedian placed his words in order.
“Couldn’t have said it any better,” Tanasha wrote.
Tanasha’s support for Eric Omondi would also mean that she is also supporting her baby daddy, Diamond who has also been accused of faking his riches and living a lie.
In an interview with Simulizi Na Sauti, Diamond’s former manager Ostaz Juma Na Musoma revealed that the singer fakes his riches so that he can get to the top.
“We used to fake our performance fees. We would give a higher figure but take whatever the client offers and this is what most artists do to date, including Diamond,” Musoma said as reported by Nairobi News.
“He (Diamond) is living a lie and everyone believes it. That is how the industry is nowadays. It is part of the route to get to the top. I advise them to stop that and be real.”
