Papa Wemba posthumous release featuring Diamond out June 24
Fans of Tanzania’s new generation popular musician Diamond Platinumz will be glad to hear that the much anticipated single by the late iconic African musician Papa Wemba featuring the Tanzanian artist is finally set for release this month.
The collaboration which bridges the gap between the old and young is expected to propel the Tanzanian to greater heights and a much wider audience a boost to his already star status. Diamond revealed that he was working on a project with the Congolese African music icon while paying respect to the singer immediately after his death in April.
The new single will be released on June 24 according to a post on the late Papa Wemba’s Instagram account.
Papa Wemba remains an influential figure in the African music scene having collaborated with a number of global artists from different generations. Wemba was a master musician, whose music transcended different genres, making him an iconic figure both in his home country and the rest of the world. Wemba died while performing on stage in Abidjan, Ivory Coast in April 24.
One would not be wrong to say that the Tanzanian singer is now at the prime of his career, he has in just over a few years reached the heights that only a few popular singers have and a collaboration with the iconic figure is definitely a plus.
