The songster had said the selection of families will begin today Monday April 27. Well, the process has begun in earnest. Bear in mind that this is open only to Tanzanians/ residents of Tanzania.
Although Diamond’s ex wife, the Ugandan entrepreneur Zari Hassan (aka Zari The Boss Lady), had scoffed at his idea of helping 500 families, it appears the singer is unfazed.
In an Instagram post three hours ago today Monday 27 April, Diamond Platnumz, who is called Simba (“lion” in Swahili), dropped this phone number +255715333346 for the public to pass information about the families that should benefit from the gesture.
If you are in Tanzania and sorely in need of accommodation, or knows someone in need of accommodation, you might wish to call the number.
By the way, the “Jeje” singer has also offered his three-star hotel in the heart of Dar es Salaam to the government of President John Magufuli to use as a hospital – or as it deems fit – in this COVID-19 emergency.
