Diamond Platnumz is here again to let haters and doubters know how wealthy he is, weeks after Bebe Cool exposed him. Bebe Cool claimed that Diamond lives a ‘fake’ life but he is actually poor.
However, the 32-year-old singing sensation claims that unlike most of his competitors, he can still eat life with a big spoon even if he decides to halt his singing career.
Speaking during an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), the Bongo flava superstar was asked to explain about some of the hard lessons the Covid-19 pandemic had taught him.
In response, Diamond said he learned that he could not solely depend on music and widened his investment portfolio.
“The pandemic had me thinking of what would happen in case I am unable to perform. So I have put in place measures to ensure no disruption to my earnings if a similar incident occurs. I have invested my money, and I can maintain my current lifestyle even if I stopped singing today,” he said.
According to the multi-talented entertainer, before the pandemic, he had been touring for over 10 years, and the lockdown gave him time to think of how to invest his hard-earned money.
“I spent a decade on the road and when the pandemic came I had to stay indoors. I thank God because I used my time well,” he said.
Besides his lavish expenditure on jewels and flashy rides to maintain his expensive lifestyle, Diamond is one of the wealthiest artists in East Africa who have made smart investments.
The Tetema star owns Radio and TV stations. He also owns Wasafi Record label with exciting artists like Mbosso, Rayvanny, Zuchu and other stars who bring in revenue.
In addition, he invested in the transportation business with over four buses bringing in daily income.
Just recently the Wasafi Records boss also ventured into the betting business!
