Interview: Idris Sultan talks about Fashion in Tanzania and Uganda




By Genius Musa

We caught up with Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards winner and host Idris Sultan for a quick chat about his personal life and fashion. Here are the expects

Who is Idris Sultan?

I am a very simple person and Professional, who understands people the way they are. I know when to laugh and when to mean business.

How did you join big brother and who inspired you

Well I had a dream of going to big brother since like I was 17 years, but I was still under age so I had to wait until I reach the acceptable age and then I contested. I was inspired by Gaetano Kaggwa of Uganda during his time in Big Brother he impressed almost everyone and managed to get a girl (Abbie) from South Africa a thing which is very hard (He laughs)

How did you spend the money you won in Big Brother?

I have actually not spent it all, I invested it in my works especially my comedy career I also do some charity in every country I visit.

Do you still talk to Ellah?

(He laughs) well yes we text almost all the time, you know it is good to keep in touch with your exes you don’t know when you will need them.

How is your Stand Up comedy career treating you?

Well at the start it was a bit hard, there was a time I had to laugh at my own jokes at a certain show. I felt so down and almost gave up but Salvador and Eric Omondi talked to me and motivated me. At the moment it is growing so fast and the fan base is improving and people now laugh to my jokes.

Who inspires you?

I have a lot of people that inspire me, apart from my mother who is so obvious, Kevin Hart inspires me, Trevor Noah, Ellen Degenrous Prince and Michael Jackson

Compare the Fashion here in Uganda with that of Tanzania

Well this is a bit tricky, but what I know people in Tanzania wear really nice clothes though they don’t know where to wear them to. You can find someone wearing a nice party dress at the office.

However in Uganda I haven’t analyzed well the fashion here but I know the fashion industry is advanced compared to ours Ugandans have managed to rule and claim fashion just like how the Nigerians did to music.

What is your favorite clothing label?

I have a lot of labels that I like especially H&M, Louie Vuitton, Yeezy and Victoria Secrets but I love it more when a woman wears it

Alikiba and Diamond Platnumz, who is better

Well they are both good and have different characters however Alikiba sings better but Diamond Hustles more a thing that makes him more money but they are all my good friends

Who are the top 5 musicians in Uganda?

Chameleone and Bebe Cool are incomparable, then Eddy Kenzo is also good, Radio and weasel and Juliana Kanyomozi.

What defines Diamond Platnumz as a celebrity?




Diamond Platnumz, also known as Naseeb Abdul Juma, born on the 2nd of October, 1989 is a songwriter and dancer from Tanzania that has reached fame thanks to some very appreciated hits like “Number One” that’s also featuring another artist from Nigeria, Davido. But that’s not all he is famous for, because apparently Diamond Platnumz takes his celebrity status very serious and lives quite the glamorous and no-limits life. While some people living the lap of luxury get to it by playing free spins slots, he did so with his talent. Check out below some of the most interesting facts about Diamond Platnumz.

The Great Controversy Surrounding A Potential Marriage with Zari

Ever since he is famous, rumors about Diamond Platnumz wife started to appear and since he was dating Zari at the time, everyone immediately assumed they will get married at some points. Over the years, a lot of speculations appeared surrounding a possible marriage between Diamond Platnumz and Zari, however, as we recently found out, the relationship is now officially over after what many claim to be a combination of financial issues and a lot of cheating on Diamond Platnumz part.

Diamond Platnumz’s Long List of Partners

Even though he was in a stable relationship with Zari, that didn’t stop Diamond Platnumz to cheat on her every time he had the chance to. After all, he had to live up to the expectations of being a celebrity in Tanzania and one of the best-paid artists in the country. So, Diamond Platnumz Instagram is filled with beautiful girls that, at some point, claimed they were involved with the singer. Not only that, but he also admitted to cheating on Zari with the former Big Brother Africa winner, Dillish Mathews that also claims she is pregnant. And it appears that she’s not the only one in that situation since Hamisa Mobettor, the star of one of Diamond’s sexy videos has the same claim. He later admitted that both kids are his and that he had sex with both women while he was still in a relationship with Zari.

It would look like Diamond Platnumz’s songs brought him even more than fame and fortune, in his case they came along with two kids with two different women. Now, that’s something big even for a celebrity like him!

Diamond Platnumz New Worth

At the beginning of 2018, Diamond’s net worth was estimated at the amazing figure of 4.5 million dollars and even though that doesn’t sound like much when compared to the billions US stars make, let’s remember that he’s from Tanzania and 4.5 million is a huge amount.

People who aren’t as confindent in their celebrity skills could only dream of this kind of wealth. However  lately world presents to them more and more chances, such as trying the bet365 app android has to take a shot at their own fortune.


But, ladies, before jumping into conclusions thinking he could be a really good catch, being single and loaded of cash, remember all about his expenses with all the parties, beautiful women, expensive gifts and constant trips he was making back and forth to South Africa, back when he was still dating Zari.  So he’s not the kind of person to keep and hoard money – he lives through what he has.

Shifah Musisi is slowly but steadily making her way up the ladder of Ugandan music. Barely a month after she dropped a compelling song titled “Emirembe” from her second studio album, the beautiful songstress with a magical voice has released another musical masterpiece. The new single is titled “Ebilowozo” and is the true definition of good music. Shifah Musisi is a Ugandan singer, songwriter, guitarist and fashion designer who has been on the music scene for a couple of years.

Born in Kapeeka, Luwero this songstress has all the makings of a star. In 2016, Shifah Musisi went on tour in Europe, performing in Denmark, Spain, Portugal and Sweden at numerous festivals. Upon her return, she embarked on her second studio album “Dark and happy times” from which her new hits “Emirembe” and “Ebilowozo” are taken. Ebilowozo, produced by the renowned Michael Fingers is simply a class apart from ordinary Ugandan music, from the arrangement of the instruments, the way it builds up to Shifah Musisi’s vocal delivery, everything about “Ebilowozo” perfect. This is the kind of music Uganda should be famous for.

Directed by the talented Loukman Ali, the visuals make the song come to life with a well written story. The video interprets the lyrics to the dot, casting Shifah Musisi as a damsel in distress, waiting for the knight in shining armor to come riding on his beautiful horse and deliver on his promises of true love. Complete with scenes of horses and fiddle playing old men, the video delivers on all fronts.

The song has been well received with famous comedian and Comedy Store executive Alex Muhangi claiming it left him in tears and deserved a Grammy. For afro-soul sensation Shifah Musisi, if the first two songs “Emirembe” and “Ebilowozo” are anything to go by, this second album “Dark and Happy times” might just be the one that launches her to the top of the music charts in and out of Uganda.
