The Kanyaga hitmaker, who owns several high-end cars, including a Rolls Royce Cullinan, said his pricey acquisitions prove he is the real deal.
“Especially for someone like me coming from the streets, sometimes I feel like buying a million-dollar car. What for?
"I have to do it because they will not value you if you don't. Someone else will look like the real deal.”
Diamond then let the cat out on his private jet, saying he is still hungry for more.
"Actually I have bought a jet because I keep upgrading.”
If his statement is true, then Diamond will enter the record books as the first East African musician to buy a private plane.
Reactions to Diamond’s jet
Diamond’s sentiments elicited varied reactions, with many social media users congratulating him.
“Chibu is in the building. He has made the haters silent now you will understand why he is the lion.”
“We pray to God that it is true you bought a private jet.”
“Living in Tanzania is hard. People are focusing more on praying for Diamond to get a jet instead of praying for their fathers to buy even a Vitz.”
“The plane is coming home next month.”
“That is a boss move.”
