Diamond Platnumz to Mdee: Home is always the best!
Many artists have always found themselves caught up in constraining deals with their record labels. On Monday (July 17 ) afternoon during a press conference , Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz narrated how he underwent to his fair share of struggles while he was signed to international music distributor, Universal Music Group(UMG).
Diamond used his moment on stage to address how he “suffered” due to the label’s music distribution process and releasing his first album. He also took that opportunity to send a stern warning to Vanessa Mdee for signing under the American label. The Jeje hitmaker said that the Cash Madame hitmaker didn’t know what she was getting herself into.
” Nisiwe mnafiki,napoona msanii yoyote kwanza akisign kwa mara ya kwanza namsikitia .Nafikiri miongoni mwa wasanii ambao dadangu Vanessa kasasignia…duu natamani ajue anachoenda kutana nacho ,” he said .
Diamond Platnumz went on to reveal that his manager Sallam Sk has been appointed as UMG’s East Africa’s representative.
Vanessa Mdee became the first African artist to be signed by UMG in 2017 but announced her decision to retire from music-making last month citing that the music industry was “demonic.” She is currently in the United States Of America with her American actor boyfriend Rotimi.
