This is not the first time Diamond’s sexuality has been questioned.

In 2018, he was put on the spot again after he was spotted with an anklet one of his performances in the US.

He came out to rubbish those claims saying his enemies were tarnishing his name.

The ‘Naanzaje’ hitamker said he wore the piece innocently because it was appealing to his eyes.

“Kwanza sijui kama kile ni kikuku, nilivaa kama ninavyovaa mikufu au cheni. Niliona ni urembo kama urembo mwingine na kwamba haiwezi kuwa ishu kubwa kama ilivyotokea. (I did not know the anklet was for ladies or male. I saw a beautiful piece and I bought it and never thought it would be an issue).”

Diamond went on to condemn those who associalted him with being gay saying he was a role model to many.

“Sasa wakiona ninahusishwa na jambo ambalo linapigwa vita nchini mwetu, wataacha kunifuatilia kama mtu wanayetamani kuwa kama yeye. (Once they start seeing me being associated with gayism, they might stop following me and that would hurt my brand).”

He said that as a celebrity, such allegations against him are common.

Diamond is yet to speak about the nose piercing or maybe he will just let is pass like nothing happened.
