Diamond’s raunchy video with Mobetto was part of a movie – Harmonize

Published

By

After a video of Diamond Platnumz making out with two different women, one of them being Hamisa Mobetto surfaced, netizens could not calm down and this led to his arrest for indecent exposure by the Tanzanian authorities.

Turns out there is a ‘very good’ explanation for the raunchy video.

According to Harmonize who was present and was even spotted in the video, the footage was part of a movie scene.

Talking to Radio Citizen, Harmonize stated that the movie was to be used to create awareness and teach men who look down upon women their value.

The reason for using the bongo sensation according to Harmonize was to publicize it and he being a playboy having been with countless women, it would drive the point home.

‘’Walikuwa wanashuti movie ambayo inaelezea wanaume ambao wanadhalilisha wanawake. Sasa ili iweze kuleta attention, ile iweze kuleta item of business, iweze kuleta value wakamtumia Diamond kama mtu ambaye ameshaonekana katika mahusiano tofauti tofauti,’’ he said.

While the mystery continues to unfold, the Tanzanian police are still investigating the matter after his arrest last month.

Diamond issued an apology after meeting with officials from Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA).

The ‘Kwangwaru’ hit maker is making international moves after landing a deal to be part of the World Cup anthem.

‘’I had so much fun making the Coca-Cola FIFA World Cup™ Anthem “Colours” with Jason Derulo. Watch the lyric video and get #Ready to move #CokeColours 24 days left @Cocacola_Africa @CocacolaAfrica,” he posted.

American musician and mum of three Beyonce reportedly purchased a church that went on the market in New Orleans. According to TMZ, the church which is over a century old was listed at $850,000 (N310m) and is 7,500 square foot has not been used as a religious place for a while. However, this is not the first time that Beyoncé has hit headlines because of a church. A few weeks ago, Grace Cathedral in San Francisco held its first ‘Beyoncé Mass’, with the service including her solo songs and Destiny’s Child anthems.

Reverend Yolanda Norton who organised the service had the idea to base the mass around the pop icon, explaining: “When we talk about womanist biblical interpretation, Beyoncé felt like a natural fit,” reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

“If we look at the trajectory of her person and her relationships, we can see so many issues black women face and how it can affect how we interpret the text.” The music for the service was predictably from the catalogue of Beyoncé and her former group Destiny’s Child. Songs like Survivor, I Was Here, and Listen were performed.

PRETORIA – A South African Urban Design firm has just won what is arguably the most prestigious Industry Award in the world.

This weekend, the Congress of New Urbanism (CNU), based in Washington DC, has awarded NEW URBAN Architects and Urban Designers with the “CNU Charter Student Merit Award” for its book AFRICA DRAWN: One Hundred Cities.

Since 2002, CNU’s annual Charter Awards have recognized outstanding achievements in architectural, landscape, and urban design and planning worldwide. Regarded as the pre-eminent award for excellence in urban design, the CNU Charter Awards honors a select number of winners—including student winners. Winning projects represent major contributions to building more equitable, sustainable, connected, healthy, and prosperous communities.

AFRICA DRAWN: One Hundred Cities is a hard-cover collectable, co-authored by experts in new urbanism Gary White,‎ Marguerite Pienaar and‎ Bouwer Serfontein.

The book presents one hundred of the most connected and important cities of the continent – a visual feast of three hundred images and masterfully drawn plans illustrates contemporary and historical place-making actions in Africa.

The result is simultaneously an artistic and visually fascinating documentation of African urban space and a convincing analysis of its structure and morphology, thus providing a spatial point of departure for all interested parties.

The drawings are accompanied by introductory texts and, for the first time, render possible a comparison of the diverse urban form on the continent. The study attempts to provide an indispensable resource of spatial and figure ground patterns in the context of urban space in Africa

It is the fourth time that NEW URBAN, with offices in Pretoria, Cape Town and Stuttgart in Germany received a CNU award.

The jury for this year’s Awards is chaired by Maurice Cox and Jennifer Hurley, Directors of Planning and Development and Principal at Hurley-Franks & Associates respectively. The remaining jury members are: Antonio Fiol-Silva, Founding Principal at Sitio Architecture and Urbanism; Susan Henderson, Director of Coding and Design at Placemakers; Anne-Marie Lubenau, Director of the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence; Elizabeth Mossop, Dean of the School of Design at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, and Russell Preston, Founder and Director at Principle Group.

African Drawn was a team effort between Gary White and Associates, Holm Jordaan Architects and Urban Designers and the Urban Research Group at the University of Pretoria (UP). Holm Jordaan and Gary White and Associates have since amalgamated to form NEW URBAN, a new firm with a collective experience of 80 years.

Says Bouwer Serfontein, one of the authors of Africa Drawn: One Hundred Cities and a Director at NEW URBAN, “We are delighted that this body of knowledge is recognised in this manner. This Publication and Award are a testimony to the fact hat students and professionals are unifed and inspire by a single and common goal – collating and sharing further knowledge about the African City.”
