Bongo artiste Diamond Platnumz is not such a controversial man, other than a few stories of his beef with one or two fellow artistes from his home country.
Recently, several Tanzanian artistes and celebrities including his ex-girlfriend Wema Sepetu and his official deejay, were arrested on suspicion of using and trafficking drugs, and rumor had it that Chibu Dangote was among those in police custody.
But Diamond Platnumz’ manager Sallam Sharaff came out to clarify that the Number One singer wasn’t among those arrested, maintaining he has a clean record despite tabloids and media insinuating otherwise.
But now, it looks like trouble eventually caught up with the Bongo star after he was instructed to report to Tanzania’s traffic police headquarters for carelessly driving without a seat belt, thus threatening his own life and the passenger.
Diamond Platnumz reported to the police to answer to the charges, admitted to the offence after which he was fined and given a warning, as per the traffic laws.
The singer took to his social media to urge his fans to always fasten seat belts while driving, and also ensure that the passengers are also safe by doing the same so that they don’t endanger their lives in the case of an accident.
From the look of things, the video that Diamond Platnumz was talking about could have been where he was with his wife Zari Hassan before their son Prince Nillan’s 40 days celebration, where he looked distracted as he drove while looking at the camera.
In the video, the musician is dancing while driving the car as his lover takes a video, which was posted in Zari’s social media. Diamond shared a picture while at the traffic headquarters with the inspector, with this caption;
Earlier today when i went to report a the HQ of traffic police due to the clip was posted am driving the car without fastening my seat belt…. my dear fans and Friends make sure you fasten your seat belt before you start driving your car…
Check out one of the videos from Zari’s social media as they sing along to his latest song Marry You featuring Ne-Yo, while Diamond is still driving but gets distracted at some point.
