Tanzanian star Naseeb Abdul Juma aka Diamond Platnumz has marked his new recording label with the release of a mega project with R&B superstar Ne-Yo.
The bongo star became the first East African to sign to Universal Music last week Friday.
“We’re very excited about signing Diamond. He’s a star he is talented and full of energy and creatively he’s on par with any international artist I’ve worked with. He’s focused and determined to succeed. He’s passionate about his country – his people – his language and his culture and I love that,” said Sipho Dlamini, managing director South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Diamond and Ne-Yo collaborated in a song called ‘Marry You’ after the two artists meet at the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards in Durban.
The song was recorded in Kenya in 2015 and has been highly anticipated since.
