EXCLUSIVE: P-Unit’s Frasha reacts to Diamond Platnumz collaboration controversy

Francis Amisi, popularly known as Frasha and a member of the renowned Kenyan boy band P-Unit, has finally responded to the rumours regarding the band denying Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platnumz a collaboration when he was struggling in the music industry.

In an interview with Nairobi News, Frasha expressed his perspective on the matter, stating he was unaware of any such incident.

Frasha also highlighted the importance of caution when building one’s brand and choosing collaborators.

“I didn’t know about it, but the truth about building a brand is that you have to be very careful about who you work with. I’m sure even he has people he can’t collaborate with now due to his current position,” Frasha explained.

While Diamond Platnumz has gone on to enjoy a flourishing career and is now one of the most sought-after artists in Africa, Frasha doesn’t express regret over the missed opportunity and leaves the door open for potential collaboration in the future.

“It’s all about business, but no regrets at all. Diamond has made significant contributions to the culture, and I respect him for that. You never know; a P-Unit Diamond collaboration might happen someday because God’s timing is the best,” Frasha said optimistically.

Bon-Eye, another musician from the P-Unit group, initially revealed that the band once turned down a collaboration request from Diamond Platnumz.

During an interview, Bon-Eye shared that Diamond waited for four hours in a hotel lobby, but they still denied him a collaboration.

“Tulinyima Diamond Platnumz collabo, alitungojea Kwa hotel lobby for four hours natukanyima collabo … Gabu alisema lips zake zilikua zimeparara, (We refused to give Diamond a collaboration, he waited for us at the hotel lobby for four hours and we still denied him a collabo. Gabu said his lips were dry),” he said.

This revelation sparked a heated debate online, with some expressing their opinions on the missed opportunity and the consequences of that decision.
