Magufuli called me during my biological father confusion- Diamond reveals

Speaking minutes after viewing Magufuli’s body at Uhuru Stadium, Platnumz said Magufuli was alike a father to him, as he was always concerned with matters affecting Musicians and Tanzanians at large; and for that he will remember him forever.
Adding that Magufuli gave him a call when the confusion surrounding his real biological father surfaced.
“Kikubwa ni kuendelea kufanya vitu ambavyo alivizungumza vile vyema lakini pia waaminisha vijana na watanzania kuwa kila kitu kinawezekana…katika muda wake aliongoza amefanya vitu vingi sana kwa hiypo inaonyesha kuwa tuimaweza. Alipokuwa anasema Tanzania ni Tajiri sio kwamba hela iko mfukoni ila tuina respurces ambazo tukitumia vizuri itatupa maendeleo.
Ukaribu wake ulikuwa mkubwa kwa Jamii maana wakati mwingine unaweza kuwa umekaa alafu Rais anakupigia simu mnazungumza kama mtu unaongea na mzazi wako. Na hata kipindi kile yalipotokea maswala ya Baba alinipigia simu kuniuliza. Kwa hiyo ni mtu ambaye tutamkumbuka kwa vitu vingine. Alikuwa anatumia muda mwingi kufanya kazi ili tupate maendeleo” said Diamond Platnumz.

“Mimi Binafsi na mwamini sana Mama Samia na ndo maana alikuwa Makamu wa Rais. Alipata muda mwingi wa kufanya kazi na hayati Dkt. John Pombe Magufuli na pia ana viongozi wengine ambao wememzunguka na sina mashaka na yeye. Mimi nimelelewa na mama kwa hiyo Nnchi ipo katika mikono salama. Muhinmu tumuombee" said Diamond.
