For many years, Diamond Platinumz never related with his father, Abdul Juma. The old money kept pleading for a reconciliation with his superstar son but it took long. He even fell sick and also suffered financially but Diamond let him be until recently when he decided that enough is enough. Diamond invited his father back into his life, and since then, the old man’s life has changed.
Ugandan diva, Vinka has signed a management deal with powerhouse record label, Sony Music.
Vinka has been under Swangz Avenue since she broke through. Swangz will now manage her local music distribution while Sony handles the international part.
“I am glad to announce that I have joined the Sony Music Africa Family. Thanks to my family @swangzavenue_official for believing in me since day one and everyone else that has ever believed in me and loved Vinka,” she wrote on her social handles.
Sony music is arguably the best music label in Africa.
Tanzania star singer, Harmonize, has over the years been compared to Diamond Platinumz, his boss in Wasafi Records.
In a new interview, Harmonize has discouraged fans to stop comparing him to Diamond.
Harmonize says Diamond is his mentor and that it is because of him that he is where he is. Harmonize said this during an interview on Wasafi TV.
The singer has a new song dubbed, Never Give Up, in which he chronicles the struggles he has gone through. Harmonize says he was rejected many times until Diamond supported him. It is therefore not fair to draw comparisons with someone who has played such an integral part in lifting his music career.
Harmonize is one of many artistes coming to South Sudan for the official launch of De Space Lounge and Restaurant billed to take place on June 22.
