Tanzanian sensational Bongo Flava super star real name Naseeb Abdul Juma famously known as Diamond Platnumz has heaped praises on Ugandan legendary singer Jose Chameleone.
Diamond jetted into the Country on Wednesday 24 at exactly 1:00 Pm aboard RwandAir airlines ahead of his performance.
Addressing Journalists at a press conference held on Wednesday 24 at Mestil hotel,Diamond revealed that it is part of his dreams to have a collaboration with Chameleone.
The singer also expressed his love and respect for Ugandan Music as the best in East Africa.
“When it comes to rating Ugandan Music, it’s the best music, trust me, I respect this music so much, I respect Jose Chameleone so much.
There is no way you can mention East Africa without Mentioning Jose Chameleone, he is a legend, he’s an icon and I hope one day I will have a song with him, that has been one of my dreams.”
Commenting on not being among those featured on Beyonce’s ‘Lion King: The Gift’ album, the singer cited that sometimes it’s good to wait for the right time.
“Sometimes it can be taste, it can be feedback and it’s good to wait for the right time. Everything is God’s plan.
Like maybe that’s how they wanted it to be, when you watch that movie, most of the things there are about East Africa, so maybe they wanted to balance and decided that when it comes to music, let’s put west African artists.”
The Usafi boss did not hide the fact that in whatever he does, he dedicates it to representing East Africa wherever he goes and with the aim of trying to put it in the World map.
He also added that, ”We should expect more collabos this year because last year I wasn’t working, I wasn’t doing any music thing, I was focusing on my Media; Radio and TV stations which are number one in Tanzania now.
The reason I dedicated much of my time to Media is that there is no musicians if there’s no media, there is no entertainment if there is no media and it plays a huge role in my career. We should expect a lot.”
He will be performing at Comic Alex Muhangi’s comedy store show on Thursday 25 at UMA Lugogo alongside Kenya’s Finest Comedian Eric Omondi, Uganda’s MC Mariachi, Godi Godi and singer King Saha among others.
