Why Diamond refused to go on stage at the BET Awards
Tanzanian singer Diamond was among the nominees in the Best African Act category in this year’s BET awards, held in Los Angeles, California, last Sunday.
However, when Nigeria’s Davido scooped the award, he invited his fellow nominees to go on stage and take a group photo. Only Mafikizolo, Tiwa Savage, Sarkodie and Toofan went on stage, but not Diamond. However, his manager Babu Tale has explained to Tanzania’s Bongo 5 blog that Diamond had not arrived at the venue yet. “He didn’t even know that Davido had won, so I had to tell him,” said Tale.
