Like it had always been with Ugandan artistes to sketch for collaborations not only with international artistes, but also those from neighbouring countries, Aziz Azion a few days ago approached Diamond Platinum for a duet.
The R&B artiste in a bid to revive his career used the opportunity that Diamond had a concert in Uganda last Friday to ask for a song.
Aziz’s pleas didn’t go without notice as Diamond who is one of the most sought after artistes in Africa lately gave him his personal number so that they discuss more about the deal.
“Deal about to be closed. Me and Diamond exchanging contacts” Aziz posted on his Facebook page to prove his point.
Earlier on, information had started going round that both Diamond and Patoranking were set to do songs with Ugandan artistes although it wasn’t clearly stated who it was going to be.Aziz later bragged at the Purple Party last night in Lido Beach that he is the only artiste Tanzanian Diamond Platinumz has appreciated and is ready to work with.
He threw jibes at some sections of the media who claim he can cont speak or sing in English saying his language is music.
Aziz Azion is one of the veterans in the music industry having inspired artistes like Eddy Kenzo, Barbi Jay and Maro among others to take up music as a career.
He’s behind songs like ‘Oxygen, Nkumila Omukwano among others.
