Diamond Platnumz’s protege Raymond popularly known by his stage name Rayvanny made his country and East Africa proud when he scooped a prestigious award at the recently concluded BET Awards 2017 in the US.
The Salome hitmaker took home BET Viewer’s Choice Best New International Act 2017, making him the first Tanzanian to bring a BET award home, making his friends, family and musical counterparts happy.

But there’s no doubt that the happiest person after Rayvanny’s win was his boss and fellow singer Diamond Platnumz, who couldn’t keep calm after Rayvanny big milestone in Bongo’s musical history.
Rayvanny is signed to Chibu’s music record, Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) after he met him a few years back before he even started the record label, but the journey has not been easy for the singer.
Diamond Platnumz decided to share a post he had put up back in 2015, revealing how he had met Rayvanny and admired his incredible talent, and for some reason, he knew that the young man’s singing would take him to great heights in the future.
Now that his prediction has come to pass, Diamond decided to give a brief history of how they met in a post where he also congratulated Rayvanny;
Earlier 2015 I met Rayvanny in one of the studios in Tanzania and realised how talented and humble he is… since my Record label’s plan wasn’t ready that time i couldn’t do anything… i flew to Germany for my tour…on the 9th of May 2015 when i was at the Backstage i started thinking and i felt sorry for him the way he was talented and humble he was, but with no help… then i posted him on my Instagram
“i believe God see your daily hustle and struggle…Never give up, Keep praying everyday…i believe one day God will open the Doors and let the World recognize your talent!”….
Right after starting my label i signed him and today he is the BET VIEWER’S CHOICE BEST NEW INTERNATIONAL ACT 2017 and for the First time bringing the BET trophy to TANZANIA!!!!….Thank you GOD its all because of you🙏 … Thanks a lot to the all media and fans for the major support
As if that was not enough, Diamond Platnumz has now become Rayvanny’s servant, after a photo emerged while he tied his shoes. Rayvanny shared the photo with this caption; “Comment chochote maana binafsi nimeshindwa kabisa kuelezea.”
Diamond Platnumz has only come close to winning a BET Award after being nominated in the Best International Act: Africa category in 2014 and 2016, so this win for Rayvanny has clearly shocked him.
Here’s the photo as Chibu ties Rayvnny’s shoe, treating him like a king.
