Diamond Platnumz will not be getting married any time soon.

In an interview with DW's Africa Josey Mahachi, Diamond said that having a wife distracts a musician from giving his fans good music, and ultimately kills their careers.

He took aim at unnamed friends whom he claims no longer sing good music because they got married.

So, when is he planning on settling down?

Diamond looked disturbed about that question.

"What do you mean settling down? I've settled down."

When is he marrying? The host asked.

"Hmmm you know, I still wanna give them more music. I still wanna give them more good music."

Does he believe having a wife will stop him from putting out more good music?

He shook his head to confirm this statement.

"That's what I have seen. From all of my friends. That's why I feel like, let me give you guys the good music. The time I'm about to retire I will get married," Diamond said.

When does he think this will be?

"Anytime soon." Diamond responded.

The Tanzanian artiste also explained why he is a global sensation.

"To me, I think that everybody has something to him or her and you need to find what you are blessed with and to me, I'm so cool with everybody. I don't have a problem with anybody I work so hard and created my own way."

What makes him stand out from other African artists?

"I'm trying to see what can go with me. I have my own way you need to be very creative you need to be very smart so I feel like because I put in more than 100 per cent in my work I'm trying to be as creative as I can trying to make sure I satisfy my fans.

Its difficult sometimes but I'm trying to be me, I'm trying to be the real me so that people can get whatever they see whether it is good or bad it made me who I am."

Best collabo?

The bongo star said, "Ooh that's really hard you know I love all of them."

Diamond has many unreleased collabos and said it's because he isn't feeling the songs even though they were already recorded and ready for release.

"if I don't like the song I don't do it. It doesn't matter how big you are I will tell you this. I've got a lot of songs with the biggest artists but I've never released them."
