Radio King Maina Kageni has explained why he had almost stopped playing Diamond Platnumz music for almost a year.

Maina says he does not play poor quality music whether it belongs to Diamond or any other artiste.

Speaking exclusively during an interview with Mpasho, he narrated;

"When he went the Gidi and Jeje he thought it was working and forgot there were people who loved him for his singing.

That man can sing. For one year I played very little music of Diamond.I told him (Diamond) I did not like the direction he was taking, if a song is bad I tell it to your face."

Maina says he is glad that Diamond is slowly coming back to his old self.

"I love his new album, he has done a lot of singing. We are a station that sings a lot of melodies, songs people can sing along to. I only played Harmonize's 'Never Give Up' song once and told him it is rubbish."
