Diamond, Zuchu bashed after terrible live performance in new year's eve show [Video]

Displeased fans said Diamond and Zuchu needed to do better in live performances or leave them to Nigerian artists such as Burna Boy

During Diamond Platnumz’s past visit to Kenya, the Tanzanian star said the only musicians who outshined him in live performances were Beyonce and the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

A closer look at his live performances shows a blend of Michael Jackson and Beyonce's performance styles.

Before his new year’s eve show Diamond even shared a video of him watching a previous live performance by Michael Jackson.

Until his death on June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson stood as one of the most monumental live performers and to date few artists have hit the milestones MJ did.

Although Diamond’s music has conquered the African continent and is even going beyond, his live performances are way below the bar.

After his performance with Zuchu of their hit collabo ‘Mtasubiri’ in the new years eve concert held in Dar-es-Salaam, fans could not hide their displeasure on the poor show the two delivered.

From shared videos of the performance, the duo seemed not to have rehearsed for the December 31, 2022 evening concert.

Some fans said the shows of the artists in campaigns were better than their live performances.

From running out of breath to singing off-key, displeased fans said Diamond who was among the top artists in the continent was painting a bad picture of Tanzanian live music and needed to do better.

Others felt Diamond needed to borrow a lot from his Nigerian counterparts such as Burna Boy and Davido who have now captured the attention of nearly the entire globe with their music.

Here are some of the reactions:
