Singer Diamond Platnumz has finally addressed rumours that he’s gay. The Kwa Ngwaru hitmaker was recently trolled for wearing an ankle bracelet while performing.
Many referred to him as a homosexual and Tanzanian socialite and Prezzo’s ex-girlfriend took a jibe at him. In a post she shared on social media, Lulu suggested that Diamond Platnumz wore the bracelet because there are not enough women signed under his Wasafi Record label. Queen Darleen, the signer’s sister is the only woman working under him.
Sema mzee wa vikuku si niwe tu msanii wako jamani kwani unasubili mpaka uvae kikuku cha pill 🤣🤣🤣🤣 @diamondplatnumz.
The crooner has come out to set the record straight and in an interview with Global Publishers, he revealed that he innocently wore the ankle bracelet because he thought it was fancy and not because he is gay. He said;
Kwanza sijui kama kile ni kikuku, nilivaa kama ninavyovaa mikufu au cheni. Niliona ni urembo kama urembo mwingine na kwamba haiwezi kuwa ishu kubwa kama ilivyotokea. Ninawaomba chondechonde waache kunihusisha na jambo hilo baya, ujue nyuma yangu kuna watu wengi mno wanatamani kuwa kama mimi hasa vijana wadogo.
Sasa wakiona ninahusishwa na jambo ambalo linapigwa vita nchini mwetu, wataacha kunifuatilia kama mtu wanayetamani kuwa kama yeye. Lakini unajua imekuwa ni kasumba kwa watu maarufu kuhusishwa na jambo hilo ili kuwajengea picha fulani kwa mashabiki au wafuatiliaji wake.
Homosexuality is illegal in most African countries and Diamond Platnumz went ahead to give examples of world superstars late Michael Jackson and Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who were branded gays yet they weren’t. He, however, apologized to those who look up to him and the people of his country in general for offending with the ankle bracelet he wore.
Mtu kama marehemu Michael Jackson alikuwa akihusishwa na ushoga, lakini hakuna aliyekuwa na ushahidi labda ilitokana tu na ishu za kujibadilisha mwili au sura. Kwa hiyo si jambo geni kwa watu maarufu kusikia eti fulani ni shoga. Jambo hilo linaweza kuwa linatengenezwa na mpinzani wako.
Hata Cristiano Ronaldo amekuwa akihusishwa na ushoga, lakini amekuwa akipotezea na kuendelea kupiga hela. Kama nilivyosema si jambo geni lakini limenichefua sana. Najua mimi kama mtu wao nimewaudhi hivyo ninawaomba radhi na nisingependa waendee kunihusisha na dhambi hiyo.
Not so long ago, Diamond was attacked after he posted a pic flaunting his new piercing. In the pic, Diamond Platnumz, showed off his nose ring and this followed with many lashing out at him saying that it was against Islamic Laws with some even hurling all sorts of insults at him.
