Diamond Platnumz has revealed the amount of money that he will pay Tanzanian traditional singer Saida Karoli after releasing a cover of her classic Salome.
In an interview with Clouds FM, the Utanipenda hit-maker confirmed that he got permission to do a rendition of the song, adding that he paid Saida’s management for the rights to re-do the song.
“Before releasing the song we had to consult her management and we gave them cash plus the additional 25 percent of the total revenue that the song will generate [from the track],” said Diamond.
Diamond, who has been unleashing chart toppers this year, has partnered with Rayvanny to breathe fresh life into the traditional song.
The video, which was released on Sunday, has already garnered over 1,300,000 views on YouTube.
