Diamond Platnumz on acquiring expensive stuff
In an interview in July this year, the singer explained his obsession with expensive possessions such as cars and properties.
Diamond explained that he acquires expensive things so that, other than getting attention, his fans can love him and take him seriously.
“Sometimes for someone like me who came from the streets, when you buy a car worth like Ksh120 million. What for?
“You have to do that, if not they will never value you, someone else will look like he is the real deal and you are not. In fact, I have just bought a private jet,” he said.
Diamond denies exploiting artistes
In other news, Diamond has been put on the spot a number of times for reportedly exploiting musicians signed under his label by making them pay huge sums of money to terminate their contracts.
Reacting to the claims, he said he has invested heavily in the music business and those signed under the label must adhere to the terms and conditions put in place.
Diamond said he runs the label as a full-fledged business and anyone who wants to terminate the contract must part with a certain amount of money.
“We are in music business but at first there were rumours that artistes are being exploited. It even reached to the President but we explained ourselves saying this is business and they understood it from our point of view
“So you can’t just leave when we have invested millions in your craft. I invest in this people, make ensure they have a name for themselves, plus shows so that we can also make money at the end of the day," Diamond explained.
