Diamond survives mugging attempt

Bongo Flava artiste Diamond Platnumz has survived yet another mugging attempt.

This time it happened backstage at one of his recent shows in Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

In a video shared by the artiste, last evening, Diamond who was ‘protected’ by his bouncers was on his way to the stage before a rowdy youth pounced on him in an attempt to steal some of his rings on his left hand.

The Baikoko hitmaker who was dressed in a dungaree, a green bandana, and his normal flashy jewellery was on standby waiting to be cued to get on stage to perform.

The commotion happened in a blink of an eye with the singer’s bouncers clobbering the thief while two of his security detail escorting the Jeje hit maker to the stage.

Despite the incident, it did not demotivate the crooner, Diamond is seen as energetic and doing what he is seemingly born for when it’s his turn to entertain his fans.

The attempted mugging incidence mirrors yet another occurrence where, unlike this one, the Naanzaje hitmaker was robbed of his valuables.

While making his way to the stage during a live performance in Mbeya, Tanzania Diamond had his valuables forcefully taken from him.

The stylish artiste who was dressed in a pair of sunglasses, pieces of jewellery, an orange beanie hat that matched his shirt and a green pair of shorts, was seen being pushed aside by sections of the crowd.

Some people in the crowd then grab his beanie hat, and sunglasses and attempt to steal his chain too.

Though not hurt, a pissed off Diamond born Naseeb Abdul Juma captioned, “But I still love you Lubumbashi… halafu kesho eti mtu anakupangia matumizi.”

The Kanyaga songbird is among one of the most paid artists in Africa and never shies from showing off his flashy lifestyle despite his controversial love life.
