One is Hip Hop , one is Pop so what do they have to do with each other. Apparently, there had been beef between the two started by our new-ish Hip hop king Darassa. Darassa came at Diamond Platinumz in his song Muziki ft Ben Pol. He was coming at the fact that Diamond constantly refers to himself as “Simba” (lion) . At an interview, Darassa explained that it did not make sense because a lion can always get killed by any other animal.
DARASA – MUZIKI
Mashabik & wangazaji: inaonekana diamond ameanza kuota mapembe.
Darasa: aneota mapembe, muongezee mkia.
Diamond: anaejiona yeye mkali tuweke mkali nan show au collabo.
Darasa: let me make one thing clear blah blah blah ctak kuckia,
Diamond: mi ndo simbaa
Darasa: sio simba, sio chui, sio mamba, ngoz yang inatosha kujigamba.
Diamond: wanakodoaa kodo
Darasa: sina maneno ya kwenye kanga, kaz juu ya kaz yaan pampa to pampa.
Diamond: watuache tulalee (ktk nyimbo yake)
Darasa: kalale uote ndoto zako za kitanda, c bado tupo macho mida ya wanga.
Diamond: (ktk kokoro) nan kazima mziki, itakua salam huyo
Darasa: unasemaga chambua kama karanga!! piga muziki, acha maneno piga mziki.
Team Wcb: diamond ndo anawakimbiza sasa HV
Darasa: unataka kukimbia na hauna break, wat do u expect.?
Diamond: ninashow rwanda burundi, south, zambia nk
Darasa: bongo,Congo, kwa thabo mbeki, cheza lokasa ya mbongo huwez Ku make.
Diamond: mm ndo msanii was kwanza kufanya vtu vkubwa (tuzo na ma show kibao)
Darasa: vitu vingne havitagaki ujuaji, waweza kuta unatandikia watu jamvii.
Diamond: jinga sana wee darasa (diamond anakimbia)
Ben pol: heyyyy, kamataaa..
The song Muziki dropped in 2016 but noone payed attention because to them it was just another song. It was a really good song. People praised him fro his work and that was that. The beef started when Darassa went on an interview and said:
“Ningekuwa Diamond nisingejiita simba, ninavyomuona Diamond ni zaidi ya Simba, kuna watu wanaua simba, simba, kajichanganya, kaingia kijijini kapotea, Diamond kwa kitu anachofanya ni zaidi ya simba, angeweza kujiita jina lingine lolote kubwa, kafanya vitu vingi sana” He said.
After the interview, people asked Diamond and his manager about the beef and they said they had no idea what was going on. So the question here is… Was Darassa just doing this for attention? Why did he have to come at another artist from the same area? I hope he learned that this is no way to get yourself famous. He needs to work hard, drop amazing music and pray! Going after others is not going to get you anywhere, it will just bring you hate.
