The story of deadbeat dads doesn’t change much, regardless of the part of the world you’re in. Tanzanian Bongo Flava star Diamond Platnumz, 29, was abandoned by his father a few months after primary school, and he has seemingly refused to forgive him for it, roughly two decades later.

Reportedly due to abject poverty, Mzee Abdul Juma Isaac split from his family, leaving young Diamond and his mother Sandra to fend for themselves. Diamond went on to drop out of high school, and start hawking second-hand clothes to try and support his family, then that he was the man of the house. With the unwavering support of his mother, Naseeb ventured into music, and his first single, “Kamwambie”, propelled him to fame. 

Diamond would go on to attain international acclaim after “Number One Remix” featuring Davido, and his works Rick Ross, Morgan Heritage, Omarion, P Square and Ne-Yo. His hard work and determination enabled him to build Wasafi Empire, which includes a Record Label with successful artists, a Media House, a video production company and other businesses. All the while, he has not embraced his father, and it is his mom that enjoys the fruits of his hardwork. 

Asked about when he last met his son, a frail Mzee Abdul revealed, “He last came here during the time he was dating Wema Sepetu. I can’t go to his place because I am scared – he is a rich man – what if he pulls out a weapon on me? I am really sick. My legs hurt, and I clean people’s shoes to get something to eat, but till today, my son has refused to forgive me.” 

Many commentators, wondering why he does a lot of charity for people he doesn’t know but chooses to ignore his own father, have urged Diamond to forget about the past and reconcile with his dad, but for whatever reason, the requests seem to be falling on deaf ears.

Music wars never seem to end in this country of ours and when King Saha came out and claimed to have been the one who wrote Dr. Jose Chameleone’s Valu Valu and Badilisha recently, we knew we were in for another of such wars.

According to King Saha who has been to Coke Studio this year, he is the one who penned the two popular songs. Chameleone has however come out to reveal that this is all bullocks.

Jose Chameleone

Here is what Chameleone said about the entire saga when contacted; “Those young people have things that are disturbing them. Valu Valu is not a song for simple minded people. I don’t want to fight with anyone but he should stop claiming music that is not his. I went to studio and created the entire song, he doesn’t have a genius mind to create the work I create. He is lying. Let him write for someone else and we see. He should stop using the media to sell his lies.”

Chameleone then referred all those in doubt to his producer PaddyMan who also confirmed that the songs are indeed his.

“We worked on Valu Valu in 2012. This was after I started my studio audio one in 2011 and I called Chameleone to come and support me. He is a freestyler. He didn’t come with any demo, or book with the song. He got everything from his head as we were recording,” Paddy of Audio 1 revealed.

It should however be noted that some musicians don’t respect songwriters and when the song becomes a hit, they claim it all and leave the artiste with nothing.

We will keep you posted.

In his confession at the Miracle Cathedral before a large gathering, the music guru told Pastor Robert Kayanja that he has had many ups and downs that almost led to him becoming a staunch devil worshipper.

Grace said; “I have done a lot of music with Eagles Band before we broke into different groups. There are times when I felt I was on top of the world and then I felt I was so down. I was so tempted. I had a band that ruled over Kampala airwaves for 16 years. Every musician in our era used to respect us. 4 years ago we split and everyone went their own way. This was the end of our happiness. We are still singing but in diminishing returns business ways. This I could do in December I cannot do today.”

Grace added; “Everything in my life is failing. I had 3 options, the first one was to become a staunch devil worshiper, the second one to become a sheikh to read the Quoran or the thrid one, to look for any church that could help me build myself. 3 weeks now, I don’t drink. Pastor help me and pray for me.

It is at this moment that Pastor Kayanja and the church prayed for Grace and dedicated him to God.

Eagles Production was formed in 1999 by Grace Ssekamatte, Mesach Semakula, Ronald Mayinja, Fred Seruga, and Geoffrey Lutaaya. They had all at one time been entertainers – dancers and singers; having started out in Emitos Band, which was led by the late Umaru Katumba, a defector from The Ebonies.
