It looks like East Africa’s big wig isn’t just interested in conquering the hearts of music lovers, but also, doing business within the East African region.
Tanzanian Bongo star Diamond Platnumz has hinted on plans to open a music studio in Rwanda. The singer, who currently owns Wasafi Records, arguably the biggest record studio in East Africa, has revealed his much anticipated plans for our local music industry.
The singer posted on his social media platforms a picture handing over a document to a Rwandan identified as Lee Ndayisaba, and captioned it:
“My Dear Rwandese artistes, I’m so happy to inform you that, from next week @wasafidotcom branch will be officially open in Rwanda…. I will soon announce where and how you can get connected and be able so to sell your music through the @wasafidotcom platform.” Word has it that the studio is being initialised by Lee Ndayisaba, the managing director of Clouds TV Rwanda, a station that temporarily closed its doors recently. We are told that prior to finalising the deal; the two met in Dubai and later signed an official agreement to open the studio in Kigali. We don’t know exactly when the studio will be up, but this will be a big boost for our local music industry.
