A die-hard fan of Tanzanian Bongo star Diamond Platnumz disrupted a press conference of the star during his Ivory Coast tour.

The clip shows the male fan kneeling throughout the press conference as it continued, before sneaking past security - still on his knees - to grab Diamond's hands and leg.

He shouts his name and holds on to his feet as security and management members try to pry him away from Diamond.

Later, he stands up and hugs him and declares his steadfast love for his craft. At one point he gets very emotional and sheds tears.
