Other renowned artistes like Nameless (David Mathenge), a Meru super-hit maker Nasizzu Murume, Otile Brown, Koffi, Tetti, Single l, Natty Mwalimu and Mc Jalang’o are also slated to thrill their fans.
The ‘Diamond Live Meru’ is organized by Watanashati Classic Entertainment in collaboration with Elex consultancy who aim to bring Meru together.
“The show will unite Meru singers. The region has for many years been said to lack artistes. We want to show the county and the world that despite being known for miraa farming, Meru is also a home to many artistes,” said Watanashati Classic Entertainment boss Kelvin Mundiga.
Diamond has won numerous awards the world over. He set a new record at the Tanzania Music Awards by winning seven awards in 2014.
