Diamond Platnumz Accused of ‘Stealing’ Otile Brown’s Work
Controversy is not new to Diamond Platnumz. Last weekend, the Tanzanian singer was accused of allegedly “stealing” beats to one of Otile Brown’s songs.
Diamond shared a snippet of his new hit, Naanzaje, on Instagram last Saturday when fans noticed a striking similarity in the beat to Otile Brown and Jovial’s Such Kinda Love, released just three months ago.
“Much love from Kenya, though beats zinakaa za otile na jovial,” pointed one fan. Another wrote, “Mmesikia ngoma mpya ya Diamond Platnumz inaitwa #Naanzaje manze amecopy beast ya #SuchKindOflove ya Otile Brown”.
Neither Diamond nor Brown and Jovial had addressed the latest controversy at the time of publishing this article.
