After three critically-acclaimed albums, the debut extended play First Of All by Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz folds a range of sounds into a dose of suave melodies. This project is a follow up to his last single titled, GIDI.
“I tried to give the people of the world different types of sounds. When the world started opening up, I went into different countries and that’s when I started recording myself.”
First Of All (FOA) is a debut Extended Play (EP) by Diamond Platnumz consisting of 10 world class songs from different genres including Afrobeats, Bongo Fleva, Afropop, Amapiano, Zouk and Soukus. It is a Love, Life and Party EP sets to pave way for his upcoming Album later this year.
This is the first EP by Diamond Platnumz after many years of dropping hits back-to-back and it is the first EP in the continent to compile 10 songs in one heavy masterpiece.
“My main aim is to show how Africa has been blessed with talent. I never wanted to limit myself to one specific sound or mood because it’s about love, life, partying and it can even make you cry.”
With stellar appearances by Focalistic, Pabi Cooper, Zuchu, Mbosso, Jaywillz and Adekunle Gold, a collection of cross-continental rhythms combine over an engaging 10 songs traversing Bongo Flava, Afrobeats, Soukous, Amapiano and Zouk.

Largely inspired by dance, romance and his travels, Diamond’s sonic wayfaring is adorned by smooth lyrics in Swahili, English and pidgin as the sultry Afropop of “Somebody” and polyrhythms of “Oka” mesh with the arresting logdrums of “Fresh”.
