Nyashinski distances himself from viral tweet dissing Diamond

Nyashinski speaks out!!

“Soon Diamond Platnumz will learn to make hits, butnot from outside Africa. He should know” reads the tweet that has prompted Nyashinski to defend himself.

According to the awarding winning artist, the tweet originated from a fake account that has been impersonating him on Twitter.

“This FAKE SHIT again” wrote Nyashinski after seeing the damaging tweet.

for  and his team and everything they have done for East African music. I am NOT associated with the account in this tweet. My official twitter account is . East Africans we should unite and push our music forward instead of focusing on distractions like these. Build, don’t destroy. Peace and love.” Reads Nyashiski post on Instagram

Last Year, the WCB CEO threw his weight behind the Kenya’s super star Nyamari Ongegu alias  Nyashinski for the MTV EMA award.

“Please let's not forget to vote for @realshinski as the Best African Act on MTV EMA!!! (Ndugu yetu @realshinski yupo katika tunzo za @MtvEma kwenye kipengele cha Msanii bora Africa... tafadhali tusikose mpigia kura ili kwa pamoja tuilete Tunzo hii Nyumbani...)” Wrote Platnumz

This is not the first time that the hit maker of “Hayawani” is being carried the bad way in the limelight.

Reports emerged online that the singer was demanding Sh1 million before appearing for media interiviews with local TV, stations.

“It’s not true, going for interviews helps my brand and my music, I can’t shoot myself on the leg, it doesn’t make sense, someone was given the wrong information. I’ve never asked for even a shilling. I’ve never asked for money to do interviews, those are just STORIES,” Nyashinski revealed in an Interview
