In an interview after the end of Season 1 of the reality show, Diamond said it opened international doors for him.

He explained that on the premiere day, his DM went crazy, with people worldwide calling and sending him congratulatory messages.

He said he had a different experience working on the show. Unlike when he is shooting music videos, Diamond said the reality show took time.

“It was amazing doing the reality show. I wasn’t used to shooting shows. You know, music videos take a day or so. The show took like a month,” he said.

“Everything went perfectly, and they had a great team. It proved to the world that Africans could deliver something like the best. That experience changed me.”
