May 2024

2015 has undoubtedly been a great year for Diamond Platnumz. The Tanzanian singer and dancer put the Tanzanian music industry on the international map. A few days ago, he was voted Best African Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA) 2015, beating South African rapper AKA, Nigerian musicians Davido and Yemi Alade, and Ivorian MC DJ Arafat. Today, as he was going head to head against Indian actress-singer Priyanka Chopra, who was voted Best India Act for My City, the Tanzanian star won a second award.

Best Worldwide Act

Diamond Platnumz won the Best Worldwide Act: Africa/India at the MTV Europe Music Awards thanks to his hard work and his adorable fans who voted online. The Tanzanian musician, who has been growing an international audience, thanked his fans on his Facebook page:

“This is not my Trophy it’s our trophy, me and You!.. because I believe without your Votes I wouldn’t have made it… wanna thank God my Africa and All WorldWide fans, My fellow Artists, Media without forgetting my Family and Management….Many thanks to @MtvEma & @mtvbaseafrica for recognize my efforts ??? “
