Tanzanian artist Diamond Platnumz has announced plans to create his own airline, Wasafi Air, only days after purchasing a helicopter.
Diamond stated in a recent interview on Metro FM’s ‘The Touch Down’ that in his ten-year career, he has wanted to do numerous things other than music.
“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.”
Diamond just purchased a helicopter that has yet to be delivered to his home nation of Tanzania.
“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.”
Diamond also stated that, unlike most helicopters, his will be able to fly at night.
“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 went on to add that he purchased the aircraft to assist people in times of emergency.
“It is an executive one. It’s going to be there in case of emergency. Sometimes, we need to think about others, not only us. People think we buy these things for luxury, but we don’t.”
