Music critic and analyst Yekolera K Abdul has asserted that Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz is currently the champion of East African Music without any close competition.
He says the Bongo Star has upped his game and outcompeted those that used to reign supreme in the region such as Jose Chameleone, Bebe Cool and Eddy Kenzo.
Yekolera claimed that Diamond Platinumz now appeals more to the people of East Africa than any other artiste, saying Ugandan top stars have slept on the job while others have lost their music aura and star power.
He claimed that even trending Ugandan singers like Eddy Kenzo and below Diamond, insisting Kenzo should not have won the AFFRIMA award at the expense of hit properties like Vinka and B2C. He insisted that Kenzo’s music is not felt in East Africa like Diamond’s is.
Yekolera also branded Bebe Cool and Chameleone as old lions who nolonger bite. He claimed Chameleone’s time is gone, saying he can’t match with current trends of music whereas he didn’t have any kind words for Bebe Cool. He said Bebe Cool should have usurped Diamond when he sang “Love you everyday”.
He says the Gagamel singer’s latest music is uninspiring and substandard.
