Diamond Platnumz is in the headlines once again after ‘stealing’ a video concept from Brazillian singer Iza’s song.
Diamond and Tanasha’s new song Gere is similar to Iza’s Brisa. Both costumes and backgrounds of the shoots look similar. Basically, they copied alot.
Gere is a copy-paste of Brisa and fans have attacked the East Africa duo for being ‘lazy and noncreative’.
Iza, whose real name is Isabela Cristina has worked with Beyonce, Sam Smith, Rihanna and has commented on Gere song.
@diamondplatnumz: friend, can I copy your work?
Me: Okay, it’s just not the same.
@diamondplatnumz: ctrl + c / ctrl + v,’ she posted on her Instagram account.
Brisa so far has 83 million views 10 months after it was uploaded on YouTube while Gere has gained 2 million views in two days.
Below is the reaction from social media users
