Diamond robbed of gold and diamond chains worth Sh1.8million
After giving a thrilling performance in the first leg of his Wasafi Festival in Mtwara, Tanzania on Saturday night, Diamond Platnumz was left counting huge losses.
The colorful night turned into a nightmare for Diamond after he was mugged of his pure diamond chains worth Tshs40 million (Sh1.8 million) while mingling with crowd.
“Zile zilikuwa white gold na diamond nilinunua Marekani. Sikumbuki lakini hazishuki million arubanne. Nilijua haziwezi kung’oka, alivyotokea mtu ghafla akazipull nilipatwa na shock,” a visibly shocked Diamond said after the incident.
Diamond and his Wasafi stable had pitched camp in Mtwara to kick start the inaugural launch of Wasafi Festival which will reach its climax in Kenya with two shows slated for Mombasa and Nairobi.
Thousands of fans flocked the venue for the much hyped show which lived up to expectation with trail blazing performance from the Wasafi signed artiste among invited such as Dudu Baya and Navy Kenzo.
