Tanzanian singer Hawa Mayoka, who shot to fame after collaborating with Diamond Platnumz in the song “Nitarajea”, will be flown to India for liver treatment at Diamond’s expense.
The treatment will cost Tsh50 million (Ksh2.2 million), and Diamond Platnumz has offered to foot the medical bill.
“Due to my financial woes, I had lost hope in getting treatment. The doctors in Tanzania had advised me to seek medical treatment in India. And now, the hope in me is restored after Diamond [Plathumz] offered to fly me to India for treatment,” Hawa told Tanzania’s Ijumaa Wikienda.
Hawa’s mother, Ndigina Said, thanked Diamond Platnumz for his kindness.
“May God bless Diamond. It is because of his deed that my daughter’s life will be saved,” said Ms Said.
Hawa has been battling a liver-related disease, which has reportedly been caused by excessive drinking.
Diamond Platnumz confirmed that he has set aside Ksh2.2 million for Hawa’s treatment in India.
