Diamond Platnumz also known as Chibu Dangote was recently featured on the remix of Tanzanian rapper Fid Q’s song “Fresh” along with WCB Wasafi signee Rayvanny.
He raps on the song while VannyBoy sings. On his verse, Diamond says,
“Ukinichukia sikosi hela hivyo kwangu sio kesi. Kunicompare na cinderella haiwezi kuwa fresh!”
He refers to King Kiba as ‘Cinderella’ in reference to one of Kiba’s biggest hits titled Cinderella. He claims Ali Kiba ‘hates’ him.
Rumors of the two biggest Bongo stars not seeing eye-to-eye started long ago.
Their friend, A.T who is also a singer told a Tanzanian based radio station that the two’s bad blood during a trip to Oman in 2010. The two were playing a play station game at a hotel, Ali Kiba was Real Madrid and Diamond was Barcelona. Ali Kiba was winning 3-2 and then he was supposed to take a free kick when he said to Chibu,
“Mwanangu nilikuwa nakutafuta muda mrefu sana ikabidi mimi ninyanyuke sasa niwaamue.”
On another occasion, Ommy Dimpoz revealed that Ali Kiba was supposed to be featured on Diamond’s “Lala Salama” but Diamond released the song excluding his vocals and without having told him his vocals would be removed. This apparently made Ali Kiba mad.
More recently, when Chris Brown was in Kenya last year for the Mombasa Rocks show alongside Wizkid, Ali Kiba claimed that Diamond’s manager Salaam had his mic cut off during his performance though Salaam denied the claims saying he did not have the authority to do such.
