A petition has been made to BET awards to disqualify Diamond Platnumz from the awards. The singer has been nominated under the category 'Best International Act'

Part of the petition states that the singer has not stood up for his Tanzanian people but has instead befriended government bodies for the benefit of his music business.

The petitioners also say that the singer remained silent when other Tanzanian celebrities were being tortured while others were fighting for their rights.

At the time, Diamond released the song 'Acha Nikae Kimya' meaning let me stay silent.

BET through their Instagram page have ignored fans who are against the singer and posted him as their man crash.

"Our #MCM goes to @diamondplatnumz aka Simba!! Celebrate this 2021 #BETAwards nominee by dropping a '💎' in the comments below."

Diamond has not responded to the allegations put against him.
