Sensational Tanzania’s award-winning artist Naseeb Abdul Juma known for his stage name Diamond Platnumz alongside South African-based socialite Zari Hassan, are both set to feature in the upcoming reality show dubbed Young, Famous, and African.

The two ex-lovers taking to social media, shared similar posters on their Instagram to announce the new show, set to air soon on Netflix.

“From Tandale to the world. Go behind the scenes of what it takes to be an African Icon to the world with Netflix’s first African reality TV show, featuring your one and only SIMBA! You don’t want to miss this.#YoungFamousAndAfrican,” Diamond wrote.

In a separate post, Zari gushing over the news stated;” Born in Uganda. Flourishing in Mzansi. Now we’re taking over Netflix! See me bossing it up on the first-ever Netflix’s African reality show, coming soon. #YoungFamousAndAfrican.”

The show Young, famous and African is set to feature six more African icons who are young, fresh, and ready to show their private life to their fans.

With only five days left to BET Awards 2021, all eyes are on the Tanzanian star whose nomination was met with varying opinions from fans and fouls as well as his country people.

A few days after his nomination, some Tanzanians were up in arms, and, in an online petition, called on BET Awards to disqualify him.

“Diamond Platnumz has failed to show basic concern and publicly express any solidarity with his fellow artists,” part of the petition read.

However, BET ignored the petition going further to ask his fans to continue voting for him to win the competition.

Diamond later responding to the petition noted that everybody is entitled to their opinions however he takes pride that people have him in their minds.

” I respect everyone’s opinions, whether they like me or insult me. I’m grateful because it means they have me in their thoughts and that’s a blessing,” Diamond stated.
