Diamond has distributed money to the first 57 families out of his planned target of 500.

Bongo music giant Diamond Platnumz has completed phase one of his charity towards people struggling to make ends meet during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The musician initially vowed to provide financial support to families hit the hardest economically by the spread of the disease.

Distributed funds and other amenities.

On Monday, May 4, Diamond distributed funds and other amenities to 57 needy families and people living with disabilities.

His mother Mama Dangote announced the good news via Instagram stating her son was targetting widows, disabled people, and people battling illness to be his beneficiaries.

The team will be collection information.

The mother of two said the singer’s team was still collecting information about surrounding families that were struggling to pay their rent.

The proud mum blessed Diamond and said he was blessed with deep pockets and a considerate heart that gave without holding back.

Diamond the giver.

Diamond had announced his plans to provide for members of his community in a past Instagram post.

The father of four said he wanted to cushion such people from the harsh realities of the pandemic as it was his duty to be his brother’s keeper.

Baby mama drama.

His decision was met with a vicious response from baby mama Zari Hassan who dubbed him as a fake philanthropist.

She accused the Jeje singer of looking after his countrymen whereas his kids had never received financial support from him. The mother of five claimed the celebrity was a deadbeat dad who never cared about how his kids ate, sleep, dressed or faired on.
