Tanzanian Bongo star Diamond Platnumz has grown his audience to an international level and subsequently is recognized with several awards. Aside from being at the center of many controversies, you can’t take away from the singer his dedication to his musical career that has equally paid him off.

While speaking in an interview with a local Tanzanian media group, Diamond disclosed that he had been approached by the Coming 2 America production team, to have him feature in the iconic movie. Revealing details of his supposed participation, Diamond said that they had requested to have one of his songs play in the film; however, they did not agree on some things with the team.

According to him, a few disagreements were never settled during the talks, but he revealed that they were still in talks and hopefully the parties involved will settle on something.
