Diamond Platnumz was nominated for a BET Award under Best International Act and he got so much support.

Manz went for the event in Los Angels and on the red carpet, he represented the African culture 100%. He dressed like a Maasai and he even had the shield. He had one job, and he performed.

The win for East Africans was that he was nominated but sadly, he did not bag the award. Burna Boy went home with it.

Bahati who is a brother and a friend to Diamond took to social media to encourage him despite the loss.
