Tanzanian music star Diamond Platnumz has dropped a new love song dubbed ‘Ongeza’.
‘Ongeza’ is Swahili word that loosely translates to ‘Add’. In the new release, Diamond Sings to his love explaining how much she hurt him.
He brings out their past love life and how beautiful it was. However, now that they are no longer together, he feels all she does is add pain to what he is already feeling.
“Mi Kwako Sikuingia Miguu, Mikono Hadi Kichwa Kiufupi Mazima, Nikiaminii Wakufa Kuzikana, Yani Hoi Sio Nafuu, Mahututi Kabisa Hata Mashaka Sina Nikiaminii Tutatengwa Na Maulana, Mvumilivu Ula Mbivu, Nimengoja Mpaka Zikaoza, Naambulia Maumivu, Ingali Sina Wa Kunipoza, Sijui Yangu Stahamilivu, Kunyenyekea Kwaniponza, Napambania Utulivu…..” the song’s lyrics read in part.
The calmness in this track brings back the nostalgia of Diamond’s earlier songs.
So far, only the audio version is available online with the video expected later. The audio is doing really well on YouTube with over 700,000 views in under three days.
Diamond’s last single project was ‘Simba’ that he composed in honour of Simba Football club after they had an amazing season.
He is currently flying high with a number of collaborations including Alicia Keys’ ‘Wasted Energy and Zuchu’s ‘Litawachoma’ and ‘Cheche’.
