“I almost went broke featuring Davido on my song” – Singer, Diamond Platnumz.

Tanzanian artistes, Diamond Platnumz has revealed that he went bankrupt after featuring popular Nigerian singer, Davido on his song in 2014.

Platnumz who featured Davido on the remix of his track “Number One” in an exclusive chat with Nairobi recalled how the collabo almost left him bankrupt.

According to him, he spent ten times more than what he used to spend in his previous music projects in the collabo.

Diamond revealed that he had to go for bank loan to finance the video since, the money used to shoot the video was too much for him on the “Number One “track.

He then said, the collabo with Davido really opened doors for him even though he almost went broke.

Diamond further said the collabo paved wat for bigger opportunities and new market which gave him the money to jump-start his label WCB.

“Before doing the first video version of Number One at Ogopa Djs in Nairobi, my video cost used to be about KSh 326, 000 per video. With Number One, I went ten times higher and spent KSh 3.3 million or thereabout to fly Ogopa Djs video crew to Cape Town, South Africa, and shoot my video. The outcome was amazing, and that gave me the green light to approach Davido for a remix.

“I took loans from Tanzania banks to finance my video and collaboration with Davido in Lagos because I had to travel there with my crew”.
