1.My Number One Remix Ft Davido
My Number One Remix is the song that introduced Diamond Platnumz to Africa. The song released in 2014 made him a household name in Nigeria and West Africa. My Number One Remix Diamond was nominated and won different awards in Africa.
It is fair to say that, My Number One Remix was that one song that exported Bongo Fleva to the world and made Tanzanian music significant like never before.
This 2011 hit by Diamond Platnumz was everywhere 2011 and it is through this song that Diamond Platnumz established himself as a full Bongo Fleva star.
What makes this song so significant is the video that was directed by Adam Juma. In the video, Diamond Platnumz embraced the full superstar look and lifestyle while the outfits, especially the "Single Button" coat, became a trend in fashion.
3. Waah - Featuring Koffi Olomide
Waah may have lazy, simple and weak lyrics but to be honest, the Bongo Fleva and Soukous bred tune, stands to be one of the biggest songs that Diamond Platnumz has ever released.
The video of the song amassed 100k views in 48 minutes, 1 Million views in 8 hours and 10 Million Views in seven days. The song was produced by Lizer Classic and Director Kenny handled the video's directions.
4. African Beauty - Featuring Marion
With African Beauty, Diamond Platnumz tried to take over the US market and even though the mission was not fully accomplished, the sound itself was sweet and addictive.
We all loved how Diamond Platnumz was able to compliment and appreciate the beauty of African women in this song that became an anthem on different runways and fashion stages around the world.
In 2015, Diamond Platnumz shocked his fans with Utanipenda as no one, absolutely no one saw this coming. In this song, Diamond Platnumz goes personal as he asks his fans and people around him if they will love him the same once he goes broke and he is no longer on the news.
The Godfather-directed music video features true characters, from his manager, Babu Tale, his protégé Harmonize, Jackline Wolper, his mother Mama Dangote, his then-fiancée Zari Hassan and many other heavyweights.
The song's lyrics are sentimental, sad and evocative but the storytelling in the video made everybody happy. Thanks to Godfather productions who travelled from South Africa to Tanzania to shoot the music video.
We don't know what exactly inspired Jeje but what we know is, this song was all over the place in 2020. The simple lyrics that anyone could sing, the addictive chorus and the spectacular dance moves in the video made the whole project a Midas touch.
Just like in the Mawazo music video, Diamond Platnumz did set a trend with Jeje music video as Diamond Platnumz's oversized boots and suits in the video became a sensation in the fashion industry.
Everything about Mtasubiri was classic, including its music video which was banned by Tanzania's TCRA. The song dropped at a time when dating speculations between Diamond Platnumz and Zuchu were at their peak. The music video for Mtasubiri was the most-watched in East Africa in 2022.
The only criticism you can make out of Haunisumbui released in 2020, is that it has no accompanying music video but lyrically, Diamond Platnumz has never written such an excellent song as this.
