Diamond Platnumz made a dramatic entrance on stage at Wasafi Festival leaving his fans in awe.
The TZ Bongo star chose a very unique entrance that most people were not anticipating. Heavily built men were seen headed to the stage carrying a coffin on their shoulders as the fans expressed anticipation.
The stage had a dark theme with the pathway lit with lanterns and several skeletons were placed along the way. Some dramatic music was playing in the background to top up the Halloween theme.
The coffin was placed on stage vertically next to other coffins and a group of people who appeared to be in a sombre mood. To the surprise of many, Diamond Platnumz jumped out of one of the coffins holding a mic and started performing to hundreds of fans at the venue.
On Instagram, Diamond Platnumz said coming out of a coffin was an insane experience and he was scared the whole time he was in there.
“Coming out from the Coffin was an insane Experience last night, was scared as f*ck in there!” He revealed.
Some people have declared this as creativity saying it created an urge to enjoy the show while others have criticized the act saying coffins should not be used for fun as they symbolize loss.
This is not the first time an artist has arrived on stage in a coffin. Last year, During The Afro East Carnival, Ibrahim Abdallah Nampunga popularly known as Ibraah who is a singer and songwriter signed under the Konde Music Worldwide label, entered the stage in a coffin and continued performing to shocked fans.
Kenyan rapper Khaligraph Jones also entered the stage in a coffin during one of his shows in 2017.
At the time of his performance, the ‘pallbearers’ made their way on stage, dressed in A black outfit. Once the coffin had touched down, Khaligraph Jones emerged, roaring and full of life and ended up delivering a killer performance.
