Tanzania beloved singer, Diamond Platnumz has disclosed that he nearly went broke while trying to feature Nigeria artist, Davido, in his song.
The singer who featured Davido in his remix for “Number One” revealed during an interview with Nairobi News that featuring the artist almost made him broke.
According to him, shooting the video cost him ten times more than he usually spend in his previous music video. He further revealed that the money was so much that he had to seek loans from his country’s banks.
He however,noted the big break and opportunities that came after the video hit the net as the music video was highly a big hit and recorded huge success.
“Before doing the first video version of Number One at Ogona DJs in Nairobi,my video cost used to be about KSh 326,000 per video. With Number One, I went ten times higher and spent KSh 3.3million or thereabouts to fly Ogopa Djs video crew to Cape Town,South Africa,and shoot my video. The outcome was amazing and that gave me the green light to approach Davido for a remix.
” I took loans from Tanzania Banks to finance my video and collaboration with Davido in Lagos because I had to travel there with my crew”.
