Tanzanian bongo flava recording artist, Nasibu Abdul Juma Issack, popularly known by his stage name Diamond Platnumz, has launched his own airline.
On Thursday, November 3, the CEO of Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) held a red-carpet event to launch his latest business.
Diamond was accompanied by WCB artists such as Zuchu and his official deejay Rommy Jones.
In addition, Diamond posted a picture of an airplane with the caption, “Today we are traveling.”
The flight attendants and cabin crew will wear purple uniforms with neon green scarves.
“I got into music, then opened a record label, a TV station, a radio station, a betting company, and now about to open an airline called Wasafi Air,” he said.
Diamond also revealed that he had since purchased a helicopter, which he planned to send to Tanzania as part of his new airline.
“I just bought a helicopter. I bought it a few weeks ago but it takes time. I was told after four weeks, it going to be in Tanzania
“It’s part of the airline. The one that I bought is gonna be the first helicopter in East Africa that can fly at night. Most of them can only fly during the day,” Diamond said.
The singer stated that he purchased the helicopter specifically to assist particularly in case of emergencies.
“It is an executive one. It’s going to be there in case of emergency. Sometimes, we need to think about others, not only ourselves. People think we buy these things for luxury, but we don’t,” Diamond explained.
