On the 24th of June, Diamond Platinumz released the long awaited collabo with the fallen legendary rhumba maestro Papa Wemba.
The track ‘Chacun Pour Soi’ meaning every man for himself is in honour of the late Papa Wemba.
The celebrated singer met with Papa Wemba during his Europe tour dubbed ‘From Tandale to the World in Paris’ three weeks prior to Papa Wemba’s death.
“Just four weeks ago, we were in Paris, he featured me in his song and we planned a lot for the song and suddenly got the news….dah!” he wrote on social media on hearing news about his death.
The song is a perfect blend of three languages; French, Swahili and Lingala. It’s core message being: “It’s a tough world out there but with God’s helping hand one can make it.”
The ‘Show me the way’ hit maker, Papa Wemba collapsed on stage during an electrified performance in Abidjan, Ivory Coast on 24th April .
This track featuring Diamond Platinum is the last recording by the late Papa Wemba.
