Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz

In a jaw-dropping spectacle, Tanzanian music sensation Diamond Platnumz left his fans in awe during his headline performance at the Wasafi Festival in Ruangwa on Sunday, September 10.

The renowned artist took the stage in a way that was nothing short of dramatic, pushing the boundaries of live entertainment.

The entire stage was meticulously designed to create an eerie and thrilling atmosphere. Skeletons were strategically placed across the stage, and performers dressed as grim reapers stood as pallbearers, adding to the mystique of the performance.

These grim figures carried dimly lit lamps as they solemnly transported Diamond Platnumz in a casket towards the stage.

Taking to Instagram, Diamond Platnumz shared his thoughts about the daring stunt. He confessed to feeling an overwhelming sense of tension while inside the casket.

"Natumai sijawangusha japo kila nikiwaza hali ya mule ndani ya jeneza kumbukumbu haifutiki…Wanachi wanashauku kuona Songea mmeniandalia nini namna ya Kuingia Stejini🙌🏼" he added.

While Diamond Platnumz's coffin stunt may have left fans breathless, he's not the first artist to pull off such a daring move.

In 2017, Kenyan rapper Khaligraph Jones made headlines when he emerged from a wooden casket during the annual Jameson Connects Kenya 2017 Experience concert at Uhuru Gardens.

Thousands of showbiz enthusiasts in attendance couldn't believe their eyes as Khaligraph Jones seemingly rose from the dead.

During his performance, Khaligraph commanded the stage with his track 'Mazishi,' a controversial 2016 release in which he dissed other artists while using a graveyard as the backdrop for his music video.
