Diamond Platnumz’s manager Babu Tale says the singer’s lack of adequate sleep and long working hours have triggered his [Diamond’s] loss of body weight.
Speaking in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on Tuesday, June 19 at a conference organised by Wasafi team, Babu Tale said Diamond Platnumz has had a difficult schedule since launching his TV station, Wasafi TV, in April this year.
Babu Tale says Diamond Platnumz has not had sufficient sleep for the last six months.
“Starting a media station is not easy. When we were planning on going live a few months to April, we thought it was going to be an easy exercise. We underestimated the work needed. Six months now, and counting, Diamond has not had enough sleep. He only rests for two hours, nearly on a daily basis,” said Babu Tale.
“He has, consequently, lost weight. We’re worried, given we have pending projects. His management, including me, comprises three people. Diamond, however, often chooses to do what should be our task. He fears failure,” added Babu Tale.
Babu Tale further downplayed rumours that the “Make Me Sing” star was losing body weight because of depression as a result of his break up with Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan in February this year.
