Bongo singer Diamond Platinumz is seeing witchdoctors, Uhondo can reveal.
Diamond’s manager Babu Tale broke the news before the Wasafi Festival last weekend, telling fans that WCB were seeking gods to stop rains from meddling into the festival affairs.
“Nikuambie, hapa tulipo tunahangaika kupigia simu waganga kuzuia mvua jumamosi. Unawaza nani anakuzuilia mvua, kwa hiyo unatoka nje ya box. Kila unayemuona anakimbilia kwa mganga amefikiria zaidi huyo. Ameshindwa kuona hapa nitasaidiwa na dua za Mwenyezi Mungu. Kwa hiyo anatoka nje ya box”.
His statement clearly indicated that Diamond’s trust in Allah to prevent the rains from falling during the festivals had failed.
When quizzed if other members of the Wasafi family had been seeing witchdoctors he said, “It’s normal, I’m African.”
He went ahead explaining that what keeps Diamond on top of his game is the risks he takes in business.
Could this be a family thing? Esma Khan, Diamond’s sister, on an interview last year also admitted she sought witchdoctors help to sustain her cosmetic business.
