On Tuesday night, a Twitter user went ham on Diamond pitting all his songs with those he believes he copied from their artistes.
In the said songs, there is a striking resemblance between the melodies used in Platnumz songs and those from Nigeria.

The expose has sparked mixed reactions from fans- with a section defending Diamond.
Many argued that the singer was just inspired to create a similar sound to the one that was already on the market.
Others defended Diamond saying he had just sampled the said songs and it’s not a crime in the music industry.
This is not the first time Diamond is being accused of copy-pasting other people’s songs.
He has also in the past been exposed to copy-pasting video ideas from other people’s songs.
Others went to the extent of comparing Diamond to Burna Boy who has sampled almost his major hits - Top of the Word, (from Brandy), Ye (from Femi Kuti), Temper (from Femi Kuti), Last Last among others.
