Diamond snubing his own sister’s wedding? Queen Darleen reveals the truth

The question on everyone’s lips has been, “Why did Diamond Platnumz miss out on Queen Darleen’s wedding?” Some believed it was due to his own domestic issues, others like myself believed it was because Queen Darleen and her man, Isihaka Mtoro, was a shotgun wedding. That is why I believe even Esma Platnumz was absent.

And it would seem I am not the only one who believes this to be true as Tanzanian media I have learnt, also believe she rushed the wedding as she is pregnant by her husband. Queen Darleen was, however, quick to quash the allegation saying,

Kuhusu ujauzito, hilo si kweli. Sina mimba. Nawashukuru kwa kunitakia kheri, ikitokea basi Inshallah.

Rumours regarding the fact that her co-wife has asked for a divorce notwithstanding, Queen Darleen chose to focus on the question of why Diamond wasn’t present at her wedding.

She revealed that she discussed her impending wedding with Diamond who expressed an immense desire to be at Queen Darleen’s wedding but she was adamant about keeping her timelines and Diamond had to go on tour. Queen Darleen, however, did reveal that he gave her his blessings to wed.

“Be part of the solution to end pornography. Not part of the problem #End10over10 @WillisRaburu @citizentvkenya” she continued.

Both Citizen TV and Willis Raburu have remained unpertubed by the calls and is set to continue with its show as usual.

The station has actually tweeted,

“Catch the charismatic all male band, Kaskazini this Friday on #10over10 from 10pm with the wild @WillisRaburu”

Anne Kioko is not the only person to publicly protest against the show, KFCB CEO Ezekiel Mutua also protested the show, raising queries over the show’s content and the kind of dancung.

South Africa-based Congolese musician TRESOR Drops A New Song Featuring Sautisol

The artists draw inspiration from the late South African jazz veteran Hugh Masekela and take us back to the 70s in Kinshasa.

Earlier this year, South Africa-based Congolese musician TRESOR released his album Nostalgia. The 13-track project revisits the past to explore the different sounds and the culture on the African continent during that time. The album features South African artists such as AKAMafikizoloKwesta, Msaki and several others. TRESOR has recently released the visuals for “On va bouger”, the track on which he teams up with Kenyan pop duo Sauti Sol. It’s a “twisted love story” set in the 70s of Kinshasa and we’re certainly here for that vibe.

Shot in Kenya, the music video opens with TRESOR sitting in boat which drifts across a lake against the rising sun. The scenes that follow include crisp shots of the inner city and captures both the ordinary daily life of its residents as well as the vibrant nightlife of Kinshasa back in the 70s. Directed by Fanon Kabwe, the stunning visuals stay true to the general nostalgic theme of the album.

TRESOR describes the track saying, “I am beyond excited to share the magic Sauti Sol and I have made with this electrifying song. “On va bouger” is a twisted love story set in Kinshasa during the 70’s.” He also adds that, “Bra Hugh [Masekela] used to tell me a lot of stories about his time in Congo; So I’ve re-imaged it from his tales to a time that was very vibrant, eclectic, passionate.”

Korede Bello appreciates Gabiro Mtu Necessary’s song ‘Kus Kus’

It is definitely a good time for budding artists like Gabiro Mtu Necessary to be singing and churning out hit after hit every now and then because the industry is no longer deceiving.

Apparently he got Korede’s attention and the response to his tweet is what made Gabiro grow his YouTube video from 2.2k views to 4.1k views and still counting. In his tweet the self-proclaimed Kisumu president says

On the song, Gabiro’s charming lyrical prowess is the star of the show, always delivered without a hint of strain. Lyrically, Gabiro mines a personal mood for inspiration, but contrasts the somber subject matter with a light and breezy delivery that will make you forget your worries in an instant — as long as you don’t listen too closely to the lyrics. Equally, the Crizo Mzeyah visuals emphasise the simplicity, mixing in footage of random dancers with a hood-looking Gabiro and some imagery to maintain those contrasting themes.

Fronted by a captivating whistle melody and pulsating dancehal beat, “Kus Kus” puts forth a dominating sound from Gabiro. Full of charismatic verses and a fierce, brassy dance break that leads into the chanting choral refrain of “rata tat tudum,” he spends the track confidently expressing feelings of joy and rejoicing.

For years Gabiro has proven to us the power of social media collaboration and good will as seen many at times when he used social media to win a cause.
