• Diamond Platnumz was allegedly paid over Sh10 million to perform in Kasarani for 10 minutes.
• Azimio also gave him travel allowance although he used his private jet.
A video of Rapper Khaligraph Jones asking Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz to ‘return’ the money he was paid for his performance during the Azimio la Umoja campaign has emerged.
In the funny clip, Khaligraph said Diamond should return the money because the party he was supporting ‘failed’.
"You bought these chains and sneakers, with the Azimio money? Return the money you were paid to perform at Azimio’s rally. You don't know the team has ‘failed’," said Khaligraph.
Khaligraph's video comes a few days after Diamond congratulated Kenyans after successful elections.
On his social media, the WCB boss asked Kenyans to uphold peace during this period to continue building the country.
"PONGEZI sana wana Kenya kwa kuhitimisha zoezi la uchaguzi na kumpata rais leo. Sasa hivi tena sio Team Ruto, Wajackoyah ama team Raila Odonga. Ni kwa pamoja kuendeleza maendeleo ya kenya na wana kenya kwa ujumla."
(Congratulations Kenyans for completeing the elections process and getting your president. It is no longer about Team Raila, Ruto, Wajackoya but as one Kenya to push the country ahead as Kenyans.)
According to sources, Diamond was allegedly paid over Sh10 million to perform in Kasarani for 10 minutes.
According to Tanzanian reports, the Bongo superstar was paid TSh196 million, which is equivalent to Sh10 million, to perform for only 30 minutes.
Azimio also gave him a travel allowance although he used his private jet.
The singer flew in a private jet from South Africa with his daughter Tiffah Dangote and his dancers.
