Tanzanian act Diamond Platnumz and Davido might have had super dope chemistry earlier in the year with their tune, Number One Remix, but something tells me they might not be sharing the dinner table this holiday season. Why?
Well Davido had taken a shot at Channel O Music Awards and Big Brother Africa over what he perceived to be a bias against Nigeria in the award giving, and decided say something about it. In a slick way he just said “N they cheat again” when Idris from Tanzania was announced as the BBA winner over Tayo on sunday at the BBA finale (more here). Davido had also lost out on all 5 of his nominations at the Channel O Music Awards a few weeks ago.
Here is what Diamond Platnumz had this to say on twitter and instagram earlier this week. Any way you look at it, it’s definitely a swipe at Davido.

And on instagram? Here’s what he said “Instead of artists being role models and agents of unity, bringing our countries together to build a strong, prosperous peaceful continent, Africa. We are the first to instigate hate and regionalism. In this manner are we really building Africa? What is our fate? Continuing divide and rule inherited from the colonial era… Anyway, Happy Independence day Tanzania….. ( Badala ya wasanii kuwa ndio Mfano bora wa kuweka karibu Nchi zao na kujenga Africa yenye upendo na Amani…eti wao ndio Wanakua chanzo cha Kutenganisha nchi zao…Namna hii kweli tutajenga Africa? Anyway, Happy Independence day Tanzania….)”
Yea… No sharing of suya between these anytime soon. Unless of course they ignore all this and make more beautiful music together.
