Nigerian music fans claimed the Bongo star’s music was inspired by hits from the Nigerian artists.
Tanzanian music icon Diamond Platnumz has responded fiercely to accusations of copying music from Nigerian artists, asserting that such claims are baseless and fueled by jealousy over his success.
The ‘Jeje’ singer addressed the allegations after collaborator Juma Jux’s recent post of their song sparked further debate on the matter.
In a statement, Diamond dismissed the criticism, suggesting that the complaints emerged solely because of his thriving career.
He pointed out that if the accusations were directed at other artists, they would be considered differently. However, he seems to believe that his achievements have painted him as an easy target for scrutiny.
