kenyan boyband sauti sol urge fans to support diamond platnumz on his bet nomination.
SAUTI SOL AND DIAMOND PLATNUMZ
byJune 8, 2021
Diamond Platnumz was recently nominated in the 2021 BET Awards as the only East African artist under the category, Best International Act. The nomination started as a good thing, so many were happy for the singer up until last week when things just took a complete turn and now even his fellow Tanzanians are not supporting him.
The petitioners claim that Diamond remained silent when fellow Tanzanian artists were imprisoned and abducted in 2017-2018 over video clips deemed obscene by the authorities.
In as much as Tanzanians are against him, he has supported his fellow artists, including Bahati, Eric Omondi and now, Sauti Sol.
The Kenyan Band Sauti Sol have congratulated the WCB boss and asked their fans to help in voting so that Diamond can win the award.
Through their social media handles, Sauti Sol wrote;
"Congrats on your nomination, bro! Let's get it @diamondplatnumz 👏🏿 🎊 #BestInternationalAct 🏆VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!"
Others who have been named in the Best International Act category include; Aya Nakamura (France), Burna Boy (Nigeria), Emicida (Brazil), Headie One (UK), Wizkid (Nigeria), Young T & Bugsey (UK) and Youssoupha (France).
