Eric Omondi’s Guide To Being Diamond Platnumz

Diamond Platnumz is by far one of the flashiest East African artists. Whether it’s his flashy music videos that get millions of of views or the posts on Instagram that make me feel like I’m not living life right, the 26 year old has definitely done well for himself. If you haven’t seen his music videos and pictures when the struggle was real, you need to get on it right away. That should serve as some inspiration.

You’re welcome.

Now Mr. Chibu is in the country and he had a show all the way in Meru (I’m still trying to understand how that happened). Well I didn’t attend the show because I was in Nairobi so I’m not going to write about that.

However, I will share with you a video from comedian Eric Omondi who’s teaching us how to be like Diamond (because we all want that, right?)

In the seven minute clip, Eric starts off with a “performance”, shirtless, because (ladies) we know that Diamond’s upper body is a work of art. Also, this is something he worked on when he was able to afford gym fees.  Good for him! Eric Omondi on the other hand… No words.

Here are some of the things you need to be Diamond (as explained by Eric Omondi)

1. Swag– we all know that when it comes to dressing, Diamond is at the top. He’s always up to speed with fashion trends and sometimes pushes himself to the limit.



2. Gym– His body? Not going to say much about it. I’d really rather not be responsible for your thirst. You can do that on your own.

You also need to get a right hand man who’s just as “buff” and as talented as you are. Diamond’s guy being Harmonize.

3. A beautiful wife. Who doesn’t know Zari Hassan is stunning? Well, at least from the  pictures and videos we’ve seen online. Also, she’s got that “cartoon character” figure that men put unreasonable pressures on women to have.



4. Of course, being a man of you caliber, with all the wealth that you need to protect and because most of it is on you (chains, watches, shoes, you…) you need a crew (read entourage). Dancers, security, your friends, the crew could be made of literally anybody just as long as they’re with you at all times to make it look like you’ve got quite a huge following.

Uh huh! Now that you’ve got the basics covered, check out the rest of the video to see what you need. Take some notes too. These are life lessons.

Thank you, Eric!
