Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania) Age: 28
Diamond Platnumz’s unique Bongo-Flava genre of music has earned him a massive fan base both locally and internationally. The Tanzanian hit-maker who was born Naseeb Abdul Juma has enjoyed successful studio collaborations with some of Africa’s biggest music stars.
Reports say the multi-award winning musician is also financially well-off, having made quite a fortune from the royalties he received from the telecom companies who offer his songs to subscribers as caller ring-back tones.
Diamond Platnumz is currently single. In July, the singer took to social media to announce that his marriage to Ugandan socialite, Zari Hassan had hit the rocks.
